    Wow flossie love your gifts, I bought our best man an engraved pocket watch which looks great according to oh. Not sure what to do about my dad :/ moh I've got a necklace from pandora that she can wear on the day, flowergirls have got little initial necklaces page boys will be getting toy cars with their names on the side. Not sure if I should get moh anything more. Was thinking personalised compact mirror for moh and flowergirls but not sure :/ and so far only got the mothers bunch of flowers not sure what else to do x

    For the men I have got personalised hip flasks which come with a little funnel and a little shot glass, all in stainless steel. Both MOB and MOG have personalised wine glasses. My adult bridesmaid has a sterling silver necklace with fresh water pearls and a personalised picture frame with a picture of us in it. The children have got personalised money boxes and a book for which says 'my day as a bridesmaid' and 'my day as a page boy' on the front so they can write a story about their day x x

    My dad loves model helicopters. I'm not sure whether to get him a ticket for a full weekend for a helicopter show he goes to every year which is £60 and give it him as a wedding present before hand as it's in June. What do you think?

    Hi all. Just looking for some inspiration for gifts. For the bridesmaids id like to get them a nice piece of jewellery...any ideas? Nothing too expensive, maybe around £50? I also want to order some glitter glasses for the morning, any ideas on where to get nice ones?

    For the mums we are getting them flowers and I'm going to look for plaques saying today today a bride, tomorrow a wife, always your daughter and vice versa for MIL

    Groomsmen we weren't going to bother with anything? As we are dressing them and buying them new shoes. But a little token would be nice?

    And for the dads I'm not sure what to get them at all?

    Danielle are you buying your BM dresses? I might be missing something but I don't understand why you would buy gifts for everyone but groomsmen? Maybe you could get them cufflinks, or a bottle of their favourite tipple?

    Yes but they will never wear their dresses again. Groomsmen will have their shoes to wear. Bridesmaids got their own shoes.

    Too much....

    I've spent £60 per bridesmaid which also includes their jewellery to wear on the day, robes for the morning and personalised hangers. Without those bits and just taking the actual gifts into consideration, it's £32 per BM.

    Have spent £32 on my FG.

    Spent £65 PP on my dad (including a joint gift for my step mum), FIL (including joint gift for his partner) and best man. Plus a further £9.99 on a plaque for my dad. This is including personalised cuff links that they're being given on the morning of the wedding.

    We've spent £80 per mum. Also includes a joint gift for OH's step dad, and my mum's boyfriend. We're planning on buying them a bouquet each as well the day before which will prob be another £20 each!

    Happily married

    Wow! That's a frightening amount of money!

    For MIL I was thinking an engraved pen, personalised luxury tea and a compact - £25ish

    I haven't worked out prices for everyone else but:

    MOH and Mom I was thinking robe, glass, hanger and mirror

    BM - cufflinks and hip flask

    FIL - cufflinks and hip flask and personalised luxury coffee

    Dad - Cufflinks, hip flash and glass


    Is that enough? should I be budgeting more?

    I think it's enough, though it sounds like we've spent a lot of money everyone only has about 2/3 gifts each. And we've had the added expense of including step parents - we wanted to get them something too as thought it would be rude of us not to. We had budgeted less in the beginning, but I found that the more time went on and the more support/help we've had, the more I've been thinking they deserve more..!

    My bridesmaids have a gift bags of bits and bobs, everything in their appropriate pastel colour.

    My FG has a teddy, bracelet and a thank you plaque.

    Dad's have their cuff links, personalised pocket watches and an afternoon tea voucher to share with their respective partners. My dad also has the thank you plaque. Best man has cuff links, personalised pocket watch and a personalised bottle of rum.

    Mum's have [email protected] pictures, trinket boxes and again vouchers for afternoon tea to share with their respective partners. Plus the flowers as I think that's just a nice touch on the day :)

    I think your gifts sound lovely.

    Happily married

    We are hiring the men their suits and have bought them individual cuff links and beer glasses/whiskey glasses.

    Struggling with my BMS though. Bought their dresses n paying £20 towards shoes. Got them a jewellery set n clutch bag to put an emergency kit in n a pashmina. Now I've seen a personalised hoodie but that would mean they'd get everything before the wedding and not during the thank you speeches

    The socks and cufflinks have arrived. Really happy with them and they're much better quality than I thought they would be! Here's (a not very good) photo of the set for the best man!
