    I think that whatever you get them will be appreciated and things that are specifically for the wedding – like shoes, jewelry, hair, makeup – is even more spectacular!

     I am trying to be able to fit in paying for their hair and makeup, but as of now they are taking care of it themselves so I agree that hair and/or makeup is a wonderful gift.  I have flip flops, flasks (filled with their favorite drinks and bags for them.  I am also etching vases (you can do this sooo easy and DIY – just buy vases and go to Hobby Lobby and get the glass etching and then you can put their initials, monogram or whatever you want for each girl) and these will double as their bouquet holders at the reception!

    I think you’re fine. If you wanted to add a gift card, I’m sure it would be much appreciated, but as long as you aren’t an extravagant group, that sounds like enough to me!

    I think you should do what feels right to you.  It sounds like you are doing things with thought and meaning behind them, which goes a long way.

    I have really struggled with this, too.  I want to give my bridesmaids something they will use and want.  So far, I am getting them: a cardigan to wear with their dress (because it’s Dec. and we’re doing a few outdoor photos), a nice scarf & gloves, jewelry for the wedding, and a thank you card.  I have also second guessed myself if that’s enough.  I found a nice compact that I might add with the engraving “You made my day!”

    @sarg88:  As you said, paying for hair isn’t really a gift. Neither are the shirts that say bridesmaid on them. But I absolutely love that bracelet! So unique and beautiful.

    You know what your budget is and what you can afford for a gift, but I would be very happy with the wine and bracelet as a bridesmaid.

    I think those sound like really great gifts for your bridesmaids! I’ve been a bridemaid a few times and would be more than happy to receive that. 🙂

    Those are awesome gifts. Better than JUST the bridesmaids t-shirt or the jewelry you expected them to wear for the ceremony!

    @sarg88:  Yeah.  I think I am going to HAVE to include them.  They are so cute.  I have been using the same dinged up one, bouncing around in my purse for years.  I think it’s something nice they will use and be glad to have.  And, they’re only $14, so it’s a lot of bang for the buck.
