I bought a cute bucket thing and in there I put an inexpensive bottle of wine, some popcorn a candy and the bridesmaids movie.  and we did the same thing for the guys except hangover 2 and beer. 

I also ordered robes from cottonage.com ($5) and ironed on their initial.  and I bought wood hangers and glued silk flowers and ribbon on them.  I had them hanging up when we all got ready. 

I also etched wine glasses for my girls.  (youtube) I bought wine glasses at the dollar store.

I got my bridesmaids bracelets with heart charms, and their initials engraved. My MOH loves candles, so I also gother a personalized candle from inthepink.com. It’s absolutely beautiful.

I second the wine (or whatever type of drink each girl prefers). Booze is a pretty ubiquitous gift. My girls are getting gemstone lariat necklaces ($20/ea with discount), tote bags from VistaPrint ($17 for all with a $70 Groupon, $15/ea full price), and some personalized, plastic tumblers like the kind you get from Starbucks with the lid, but reusable ($14/ea). I was also throwing around the idea of getting them each a cheap clutch and putting some emergency kit items in there, like chapstick, stain pens, deodorant remover, gum, their timelines, etc.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with getting different gifts for each bridesmaid if they have different tastes, either. In fact, it would show how well you know each of them.

Other ideas might be some nice picture frames or gift certificates for something fun (dinner, laser tag, zoo, whatever).

I am going to give my girls their totes at the shower because I am going to give them things for the bacherette party too. I got all my girls Totes that I am going to personalize and inside there will be a hair piece for the wedding day, a bracelet, personalized hangers, tank tops that we will decorate together and wear on the way to the bachlorette, rehearsal and day of, glow sticks and such for the BP and hand made thank you cards.

I was thinking of  getting them flasks, but I haven’t decided.

I got them something from my FI’s hometown (known for their artsy jewelry) and something from my hometown (wine from our local winery).  

I agree with PPs, you can get different things for different girls.  Everyone above has fantastic ideas.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I also recommend looking at http://www.etsy.com for unique and beautiful gifts, just search for “bridesmaid gifts.”  Super affordable options on there.

I have three female and one male bridal attendant, which makes giving gifts a bit tricky.  I think I’m going to give the girls handmade jewelry (earrings and a necklace) and the male attendant a pair of cufflinks or a pocket watch.  Each person is also going to get a card with a meaningful message inside, a framed picture of us together,  and a personalized travel mug.
