    @Shkragoldfish:  I like the idea of one “experience” like the massage and one “tangible” like jewelry or clutch

    A gift card to their favourite store or restaurant (not hobby). So for a BM that likes to read a gift card to a book store, for a BM that likes to cook a gift card to William Sanoma or the like, for a BM that likes getting their nails done a gift card to the salon where they get them done etc etc.

    @Shkragoldfish:  You are a nice bride! I love the personal note thrown into it. I’d like to get my bridesmaids a nice, non-wedding piece of jewelry to remember the day by. I figure with a thing like a massage, it’s nice for an afternoon. But I’d love it if we were all together in 10 years saying “hey! this bracelet was from Ducky’s wedding! That was a really special night!”

    I’m planning to get my maids a set of nice pajamas each (they can wear them getting ready if they want, or not… Up to them). Everyone wears pjs (mostly), and I can’t count howany times I’ve gone away and forgotten to pack some, so it would be especially handy for a destination wedding.

    @Shkragoldfish:  I consider a gift card to a hobby store an experience gift,  if that helps 🙂

    I’m one of those people that picks out my own clothes and jewelry because I’m very picky. Even if you think you know what I’d pick, just don’t. Because if I don’t love it, I won’t wear it. I’m not sure how your maids are but if they are like me, avoid buying things for them to wear outside of the wedding. A massage would be nice but I would be plenty happy with your “non gift” gifts! I love pashminas 🙂

    +1000. I would love a massage gift certificate! 🙂

    A gift card to a store of eatery that I frequent.. not so much a hobby store. The only reason I’ve even gone to a hobby store recently was for the wedding.

    @Shkragoldfish:  I like the personalized touch. I’d probably pick the massage, jewellery and/or the gift card to my favourite sports store.

    @Shkragoldfish:  I voted for the massage and hobby store gift card.

    You sound like you’re a lovely person and your BMs sound lovely too. Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!
