What kind of budget are you looking at?

I think a GC would be nice with a nice note, a nice bottle of wine, some gourmet chocolates from a local candy shop, taking them all out for pedicures, etc.

I am having the same problem for my bridesmaids, I’m having six so I think the first part is set a budget for the gift, because then you multiply that by however many is in your party. It can get pretty pricey.

 

For a wedding I was in I received  A sweet pea travel sized kit from Bath and Body works. It had the body lotion, spray, and shower gel. She also gave us a hand sanitizer from Bath and Body works in our astrological sign. I got a leo and it had an amazing scent. She gave us two thongs from Victoria Secret, one purple which matched her colors and one that said “Bridesmaid.” She also got us 2 mini black and white damask make up bags. I want to say she spent around $50 on each.  But it was a really nice gift!

I also agree with the gift not being totally wedding related. I am getting my BMs some fun statement earrings at Francescas, Charming Charlie, Forever 21 or something of the like. They will cost about $6-$7 a piece and I think its nice to include something wedding related?

I think a gc for a pedicure is a great idea but only if you can choose a salon that is convenient for everyone. My stepmom got me a gc to a salon in Houston and I live in Dallas..

I got my girls a monogram robe, personalized note cards, Burt’s Bee’s, personalized wine glasses, and a bottle of wine.  I wanted something out of the box, but nothing really struck me…

I’ve already purchased my (9!) girls a pair of flip flops for the reception and bedazzeled them a little so they’re a little more special then normal flip flops.. I plan to get them each a $25 gift card to the salon we’re getting our hair done it, I figure they’ll really appreciate that! Then I’m going to give them each a flower (handmade) to put in their hair for the day of the wedding, and I’m going to get a cute frame and hopefully get a pciture of me with each of them individually at the shower/bachelorette party and put it in the frame. That’s approximately $40 per girl.. I think that’s reasonable! Old Navy flip flops, Kohl’s frames, flowers from Michael’s.. can’t go wrong!

I got my BMs a Birchbox subscription…they send a small box of makeup/beauty samples to your door every month. You can do 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions at $10 a month.

My daughter got her girls beautiful robes from Plum Pretty Sugar Loungerie. They really make for good getting ready photos and she got me one too but in ankle length. I know that everyone still uses their robes all the time. They are very girly, delicate, and beautiful! She wrapped them up along with a bottle of wine (she printed her own labels at home). The girls loved their gifts!

For shower gifts I plan on spending about 30$ on each girl and for the wedding 20-40$.

For the shower I am getting them nice makeup kits at sephora.

For the wedding we are doing these great belt buckles with each picked to there own style (etsy shop bmused). It was much easier to do the buckles and do the same for the guys and girls in our wedding party. Ive also made all of there jewelry which is theres to keep and pretty easy to rewear anywhere.
