    I am having a hard time deciding what to buy my bridesmaids for gifts, so far I have bought them their shoes for the wedding but I wanted to add something else.

     

    What is the best gift you have received as a BM gift?

    Maybe this will help me!

      I've stood in 7 weddings.  As a bridesmaid I really like when i got earrings I would actually wear again - they were simple pearl studs, and a grey pashmina.  I wear the pashmina all the time!  Because its grey it matches everything! 

       

      I also really liked when I once got a clutch as a bm gift.  I use it frequently when I have to get dressed up. 

       

      I really dislike getting fake diamond looking jewellery, reminds me of costume jewellery and I would never wear it again.

       

      For my bridesmaids, I am putting together a box, Micheals craft store has some really cute boxes with magnetic flap  lids, they're about $15-20, but every time you buy something from Micheals you get a coupon for 40-50% off your next purchase, so I've been buying them one at a time!   Inside the box is a clutch, from etsy, earrings from etsy, a thank you card with letter and old picture of us from the past.

        I haven't received a gift, since I have not been one yet. But etsy has great one of a kinds stuff. I will be buying my bridesmaid dresses for them, as appreciation for coming all the way to mexico, as well as personalized necklaces with their initals on them

              I got a personalized address label stamp thing, not sure what it's called, but that was a neat and different gift.

                Another fab idea - personilized address stamp! Keep them coming ladies!

                 

                Krys, my wedding is comprised of a lot of etsy stuff as well, it's addicting!!!  We should meet for a drink then because I am staying at the Riu Palace and also getting married there. We get in on April 13 and staying until the 20th.

                  That would be Great Mishele!  I'm going to try to send you a PM with my email address so we can talk via email and create a meeting spot and time!  We arrive on the 18th, but our guests arrive on the 21!
