We got the bridesmaids (apart from dress, shoes, shawl, jewellery, hair piece, handbag, dressing gown, pjs, personalised hanger, hair, make up, tan, nails) a make up bag with their initial on it filled with their favourite make up (foundation, powder, blush, mascara, eye brow palette and two eye shadow palettes) and they loved them. I had to do a lot of secret snooping in their make up bags to find out what they were, but it was worth it - they were thrilled! I gave them their cards and shawl, home made handbags (each with an embroidered personalized note) filled with an emergency kit, pjs, dressing gown and hanger the night before the wedding and then gave them the make up bags the morning of. The groomsmen got (apart from rented suits, bought shirts, shoes, socks, ties, pocket squares) hand made personalised cufflinks and monogrammed tie bars. We also paid for their accommodation the night of the wedding.

Hmm what are they into? A beautiful print could be an idea, or a voucher for a beauty treatment or restaurant that they love. My sister gave me a lovely leather handbag as my present, while my sister-in-law brought me on a weekend away. If they like to cook, a nice piece of le crueset from Kildare Village outlet might be an idea. Or one of the nicest gifts I ever got from my best friend was a super cool cheese board and set of dinky cheese knives because we share a love of good cheese. I highly advise getting different gifts for different people so that you can really suit their own personalities.
