So my wedding is getting closer and while I am trying to remain calm about what appears to be a mountain of little shit I have left to do, one thing I keep coming back to is gifts for my girls. I have been thinking about this on and off almost since I asked them to be my BMs and every time I thought, "Something will come to me." Except that I've always been awful at picking out gifts for people (even people I have literally known my whole life) and I still haven't had an epiphany. The best idea I came up with was a pair of customized chucks for one of my girls because she would really love it but then I was at a loss for everyone else.
So after reading a previous discussion regarding the cost of being a BMs (btw, I haven't yet been a BM), I was kind of shocked about the financial burden it puts on some girls, While I tried to make everything as inexpensive as I could, I am still feeling guilty about it, though I never outright asked for anything (ie the bridal shower happening this weekend and the bach party the beginning of Aug). With this in mind, I was wondering, and I am really nervous to ask
, would it be tacky or in poor taste if I gave each of my girls a gift card (like a generic VISA or Mastercard one so it can be used anywhere they want) in addition to a picture of us
(meaning me and each BM individually) and a very heartfelt note
I want to be sure that they know how much I truly value the time and money they have spent to celebrate my upcoming nuptials - I really don't want to give them a gift that I
may think is perfect but leaves them feeling underwhelmed. I've always thought GCs to be rather impersonal so that is my concern but I'm more concerned about giving them a gift that will wind up in the "worst bridesmaid gift EVER" pile.
I'm sure I am over thinking this (as often is the case) but I'd appreciate a little feedback. Thanks in advance!
