@cateyes:  I think what you listed was fine! And I think I would rather have my hair covered and buy my own shoes 🙂

Sounds good to me!  You’re making their dresses?!  That’s amazing!

@cateyes:  I think it sounds awesome already. Tarte lip crayons and sugar lip balm are NOT little nothing items, so even though they are physically small I feel like that’s a substantial gift cost-wise.

@cateyes:  RIGHT?! Those big ones are ridiculous. I love the one I got as my “happy birthday” from Sephora last year. I think it’s even smaller than the gift pack size, but I love it.

1) do you think I need to give more? Nope, what you’re giving sounds great
2) ideas for other little things to put in the clutch that are nice and inexpensive, but not just cheap filler? depending on your budget, I’d love a sterling silver bracelet or earrings (from test they can be $20-40). I’d like this even if it was the only thing in the clutch or given instead of the clutch
3) as long as the shoes aren’t crazy expensive, would you (as a bridesmaid) rather have your hair paid for (which I wouldn’t demand if they wanted to do it themselves) or have the shoes gifted? I’d rather have you gift the shoes because I’d want to do my own hair or if I wanted it done I’d be fine paying

@cateyes:  Sounds like you’re giving them some lovely gifts! You could put a pack of oil blotting papers in the clutch – I think they’re $5 at the Body Shop and they come in handy when you’re dancing all night.

The clutches are a good idea. I suggest you throw in one of those to-go spot remover pens (I think Tide makes them) for spills on dresses. I think a pack of three runs about $8.

As a general rule, if the bride wants something specific for her maids as far as accessories or hair/makeup goes, she should pay. I think paying for either all the shoes OR all the hair would be a very nice gift from you! (I’d probably prefer the shoes be bought, hoenstly, because I’m not hair savvy and would’ve paid someone to stick it up anyway).
