I think your gift ideas sounds good and are plenty.

We also had a hard time with groomsmen gifts, especially since a lot of our groomsmen didn’t really drink. But if yours do, I like your idea! Pintrest has some cute gift box ideas for those type of groomsmen gifts too! We ended up getting ours reusable water bottles and nice swiss army knives in leather cases. I also added lots of snacks to their gift bags! They are all more outdoors-men than anything else so the gifts went over pretty well. Even the one groomsmen who wasn’t that “outdoorsy” liked it because they’re handy items to have at home.

I got my girls mugs from Anthropologie with their initial on it, a photo frame with an IOU for a wedding photo, a Kate Spade Necklace, and some cute earrings.

I think that $100 is plenty to spend. However, where I am from people generally just give jewlery for the day of. Just remember your girls are not in your wedding for the gifts, rather to celebrate and support you.

I got my girls a bracelet, earrings, and shoes for the day of. I also got them a personalized lunch tote (I have a couple that bring lunch to work everyday, the others can use them occasionally). I might also get them another item. I great deal on these items. Normally they would be about $100 but I got them all on sale for about $35 a girl. 

 

For the men, my FI wanted a practical gift, so we got them personalized duffle bags. Here is a link:

They were on sale for like $33. So if you wanted to get these, but keep costs the same you could do the flasks as well.

This site had some really cute items (and many were on sale!), take a look around. I haven’t received them yet (I should be in a couple of days) but the reviews seemed good on items I ordered.
