Past Bridesmaids/moh’s - What was the best gift you’ve ever gotten from the bride?

What’s the best gift a bride ever gave you as a thank you?

And on the flip side...did you ever receive a gift from the bride that you didn’t like/never used?

I have 4 bridesmaids and 2 MOH’s for a total of 6. I can’t break the bank since we’re on a tight budget, but want them to like, use, and appreciate the gift.

    I got my BMs a reusable tote, a bath bomb and a monogrammed blanket. The girls used the blanket that evening actually!

    AS a bride I paid for my bridesmaid dresses and I am also paying for their makeup.

    I liked having my hair and makeup paid for. It was really appreciated considering being in weddings can already be really expensive!

    Twice I was given the necklace to wear at the wedding. I haven't worn them since though. The other time I was given a spa gift certificate. Another bridesmaid and I went together so it was fun.

    I am debating between paying for their makeup or nails (just to pamper them) or if I should buy them an actual gift to keep.... also conflicted!

    I like the book idea too! My MOH is a big book worm so that'll work for her at least!

    Honestly, best gift i ever got was my bridesmaid dress paid for. I was a bridesmaid last summer in a june wedding and the bride bought our dresses for us. I then wore that same dress to all 3 other weddings i attended over the summer... And a christmas party or two and it was fantastic!

    The other great gift i have recieved is a book. The bride is a librarian so she picked a book for each bridesmaid and wrote a little inclscriptuon at the beginning for each of us. It was so personalized and sweet it was for sure one of my favorites
