Bridesmaid gift cost/suggestions?
Posted 13 February 2009 - 02:26 AM
I plan to get my MoH something small (maybe just some really nice flowers b/c she's a picky shopaholic and has everything she wants). I know it's a lot of work and money to host a shower, but I would happily return the favor when my BMs get married and don't really feel that any elaborate gift is required.
In my mind, throwing a shower is sort of like throwing a birthday party for someone...it's done out of love and b/c it's a special occasion (and in the case of a wedding it's even more rare and more special!).
All that being said, you know your BMs best and probably have the best idea of what "feels right" but I think something like a spafinder gift certificate would be nice (then they can all get facials or manicures or something before the wedding!). GL! All the pesky wedding etiquette details are always a huge stress :S

We got gifts for being bridesmaids and I got a "special " gift for being MOH that I didn't even feel was necessary. I was the MOH and honored to be. It seems to me that while I had a ton more to do than the other girls and did end up spending a ton more money that I was honored that she wanted me to be her MOH.

Because they are already getting all of that practical stuff, I want to something different for them. I might get them a massage gift certificate and give them a nice candle to go with that, or something along those lines.

then again, every bridal shower i have ever been to/planned has been a surprise party ... hard to show up with gifts for the hosts when you've been surprised! "thank you" cards are usually sufficient.
