I think the stuff you have is very nice. I have been trouble coming up with gift ideas I have 3 girls and want to spend 50 each. This is what I have so far…I have a robe with their name embroidered on the front ($16), personalized wine glasses ($7.00), compact hand mirrors handmade from India ($5), A giant engagement ring keychain ($3),and their barefoot sandals to wear for the wedding ($12)

I still want to get them a Mac lipgloss and a photo album with pics rom the bacholorette party. I should stay right around $50 per girl.

Hope this helps!

  Get some cute flip flops! Old Navy always has them for really cheap. You could do a beach towel in your wedding colors (if you get the space saver bags, vacuum the extra air out of the bag, that will fit really well).

ETA: Sorry, I missed the beach towel comment from earlier. What about water bottles?

You could get them sarongs…either get them at home, pack and bring with you, or do a quick shopping trip when you get to Jamaica.  I’ve never been, but I’d imagine there are a TON of souvenir shops where you can pick up some small items for them (mini photo books, hair clips–anything “Jamaica”-like).  Usually when you go to those types of markets, you can bargain on price (since you need 6 of everything)–this will also solve your packing space issue

Different colors would be a good idea.  By the way, if you plan on searching online for them, they are also known as “pareos”

@dynamic_duo: you have done a great job so far! the jewelry and the welcome bags sound great! i am trying to do something similar, we are having a destination wedding in Charleston SC- its not on the beach- but we will be taking full advantage of being near the beach!  I am kind of torn because i had more of a budget before we moved but i am doing my best! i am doing jewelry and totebags for my bridesmaids, trying to continually collect stuff to put in them! so far the totebags are from tiedyeusa.com and i would like to include flip flops, a towel, jewelry box to put jewelry in, fun luggage tag to put on the outside, maybe a waterbottle and picture frame?  i have 5 to buy for cause 4 BMs and a friend that is the wedding coordinator so i feel your pain! instead of the picture album-you could just do a frame? they could be very individualized- my bags and everything but the jewelry are by each girl’s fav color! i asked all of them for their 3 top colors and shoe size and just went from there!
