I’m trying to get ideas for bridesmaid gifts and so far I think I’m going to get them some kind of cute clutch. Picture below! They aren’t carrying flowers so I figured the clutch would be cute.
I want to put something in them though. I was thinking of getting them both a pair of earrings. One bridesmaid can’t wear a necklace, because for the ceremony we are presenting her with a “family medallion” and the other has totally different taste then mine and I would have no clue what kind to get her.
I was thinking of putting a lip gloss or something similar in too. The only kind I wear is from bath and body works, and I don’t know about another thing else that might be good. The one uses Bare Minerals makeup but I don’t know if they have anything like that. Something with maybe a “hint” of color or just shiney.
Any other ideas???

We bought their shoes (custom Converse) and got them purses. I put lip balm, gum, hand cream, hand sanitizer, and a nice bracelet in each one (each of the bracelets were different). I told them they didn’t have to use them on the day of the wedding or wear the bracelets the day of the wedding (we gave the purses to them the night before at the rehearsal) but they all did anyway 🙂

@mm86: I like the gum, hand cream and sanitizer ideas. I have already bought their dresses and will end up buying one pair of the shoes (My 16 year old niece is one of the bridesmaids)
We are doing a destination wedding too, and we are paying for a rental house for everyone for the week, and I’m planning on doing welcome bags for everyone (14 total) with stuff like sunscreen, something vegasy etc.
I was also thinking of nail polish maybe? We are all going to get our nails done before we leave, but that would mean I would have to give it to them a week before the wedding.
