Does anyone have any ideas for inexpensive Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts? I’m not trying to be cheap, but my parents are paying for their dresses and we’re on a low budget. I wanted to get them something, but I am totally at a loss. I considered getting personalized makeup bags filled with random things, but that can get expensive… and I wanted something a bit more unique if possible. Any suggestions are appreciated. 🙂

Personalized stationery is a good gift. You can get a pretty good deal on etsy, or giftsin24.com or americanstationery.com with a coupon. 🙂

Etsy has some great BM gift ideas try browsing through there and pretty reasonable. Oh, what about a piece of jewelry specific to each girl’s personality?

I am helping pay for their professional makeup for the wedding, if they choose to get it done. If they dont, I am going to make them a “pearl” bracelet to wear for the wedding.

I found really cute patterned clutches from ToonDesigns on Etsy. $12 each and buy 3, get 1 free. I also found pashminas from a couple different sellers to match and got a fun set for each girl. I’m so excited to give them to the girls!
Not sure if that’s in your budget, but stationary is also a really nice idea.

I bought some Pashmina wraps on Ebay for $8 a piece (plus $3 shipping). They are so soft and gorgeous! I’m also getting them necklaces and maybe evening clutches.

- Wedding: April 2011 - in the woods
my favorite bridesmaid gift that I’ve received consisted of a mini tote bag from L.L.Bean (the bride monogrammed it for each one of us and chose colors that reflected our personality) with a handwritten note from her, a jar of our favorite lotion, and a bracelet. The gift was very thoughtful, very simple, and very useful. I wear the bracelet often, long since used up the lotion, and use the mini tote bag to hold toiletries on trips.
