@sweetocean24:  I suggest you not put their names on the bags.

A gift to the BM’s should be something unrelated to the wedding. If they are expected to use it or wear it in association with the wedding, it is not a gift so much as a prop for your wedding. That includes paying for hair and makeup.

Rather than focus on adding things that have to do with the wedding, or its’ location, I would think of a personalized gift for each BM.

If you know them well enough to ask them to be a BM, you must know what their interests or passions are.  If they like wine, a gift card to a local wine store or tickets to a wine tasting. Think of something like that.

@sweetocean24:  how about paying for their hair &makeup so you can all relax together and enjoy getting ready?

I’m struggling with the same thing.  I haven’t figured out exactly what I’m buying them yet, but I did want to look into robes.  Nothing with names on it though.  Here are the ones I’m interested in, http://www.doielounge.com/products/category/bridesmaids/

I also thought about buying them an excursion for their gift instead.  That’s probably one of the best gifts they will receive and no one else can come close (unless they too have a destination wedding).

@sweetocean24:  Does the place you are staying have a spa? If so what about surprising them when they get there and going for a massage or a pedicure?

@sweetocean24:  Maybe get them a facial the day before or a massage….I know I’d be happy with either one!

Sunglasses?  I am constantly loosing mine, so it would be great for me, and can be used just for driving around.

I was thinking about talking to my girl’s SOs to find a book or movie that they want but don’t have, or broke/lost their copy of.  Books could work great for beach reading!  Plus, paperbacks are at most $10 per copy.
