FI and I have been engaged since November 2014 and are getting married in October this year. In March of 2015 I asked my 3 sisters and my best friend to be my bridesmaids. I didn't know that it was best to wait closer to the wedding to ask, but luckily for me we've had no issues.
The issue is that as soon as they accepted I started keeping my eye out for gifts for them. I had planned to shop for them individually and get them things like I would get them for birthdays or Christmas. I knew that I had been picked up a few of the same things for all 4 of them, however, over the weekend I realized that they all have the same gifts.
Here is what I've ended up with:
- Eye shadow palates. Usually I buy them something like this at Christmas time each year and it is always a hit.
- Make up bag with matching pocket mirror. This was going to be one for one sister then I realized, I have
traveled with all 4 of these girls and they all keep their make up in
zip lock freezer bags.
- "Adult" coloring book. One of my
sisters is obsessed with Justin Timberlake and I found a site that sells
JT coloring books. The site had other silly coloring(The Office, Arrested Development, Boy Bands of the 90's) books that fit
each BMs tastes, I couldn't resist.
- Necklaces with each BM first
initial. I was only going to get this for one
sister because she had been saying she wanted a "delicate" necklace for a
very long time. Two of my other sisters saw it at my house and instantly thought I had gotten them for all of them and were super
excited.... so I quickly ordered 3 more... I am not asking them or expecting them to wear this on the wedding day.
I want to do something to make it more personalized for each one, but it is really difficult because they are all similar. One of my sisters is really difficult to shop for, so, I thought about just getting her a Starbucks gift card. But then thinking about it, I thought I should just get them each gift cards to places they like... But where is some place they like, what would make sense... and then it hit me, they ALL love Target, we always talk about all of our shared love of Target...
Would it be awful if I just got them all gift cards to Target to finish off the gifts?
