Put what you already have in a DIY cute tote along with a personalized note and I think you should be good.  You could do a small picture frame too……..

I agree with the tote with their name/initials. I also am making homemade bath salts for my ladies.

At my shower I’m going to have someone take a few pictures of me with each of the girls who are in my wedding.  I’m going to have the photos developed, and I’m going to include a frame with a photo of me and the bridesmaid in their giftbag.  I might even get a cheap frame and paint/decorate it myself (I’m into DIY projects lately!).  I figured it is a really nice, personal gift that they would each really appreciate, and it would make their gifts seem more “complete” because like you I’m on a tight budget and I’m only giving them a few simple things.

I also like the idea of a personalized note and I will definitely be including that too!

Michael’s has wood frames for $1-$3.. you could paint them and decorate them to match each girls personality or style. And then put a pic of the two of you guys in it. I did these as part of the bachelorette party favor bags

Or you could decorate a cute box to put the pearl earrings in.

Are you handy with a sewing machine?  I was looking for a creative way to package a necklace & earrings set for my bridesmaids and another bee suggested I check out the following link (directions on how to make your own jewelry roll).  I think it’s a useful gift… They could use it whenever they travel.  It also seems fairly inexpensive to make.  I’m just not very handy with a sewing machine (but ironically enough my fiance IS so maybe i’ll enlist his help if I end up tackling this project). 🙂
