BM and GM gifts??

Recommended Posts

Okay, I am at a total loss - what are you all doing? And what price range is appropriate, do you think?

 

Thanks in advance for your input and/or suggestions! :)

I have been to many weddings this year and not a lot of people get gifts for the BM and GM (or maybe I don't see them) so I wouldn't stress too much. I remember one bride who got customized tote bags with their initials for her bridesmaids which seemed inexpensive and practical.

Hi there,

 

I'm not too sure what the norm is. I think it really depends on your budget and the number of BMs and GMs you're having. I've heard that for a DW, the BM and GM gifts should be a little more than the norm, because they're traveling to be with you and your FI.

 

I ended up getting my BMs very high quality and sturdy beach totes (from Mary Kay), and filled them up with stuff they'll use while they're there (beach towel, flip flops, travel mug, sunglasses, makeup, lint rollers, bug spray, travel pillow, travel manicure set, headache and stomach meds, etc). I basically filled them with all the stuff I put in the OOT bags for guests, plus extra stuff - that I couldn't afford to put in every OOT. I didn't personalize any of the items, 'cause I couldn't decide on a style that I think they'd all like.... And, I know that the only place they may mix up the bags is when we're away. Each gift (bag and contents) cost between $100 & $120.

 

My FI got his GMs a more traditional gift: dress watches. He paid between $100 and $120 per watch, which includes engraving their names.

 

More traditional BM gifts include: jewelery, jewelery boxes, flasks, compacts, picture frames, etc. And, personalization is a nice touch. A digital photo frame might be a nice gift for a DW too. :)

 

Hope that helps a little! :)

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
