I don’t have any ideas for you, but I thought I would add that I would love an architectural alphabet framed picture.  I would be more likely to use a picture though that says something like “love” or ‘friends’ instead of my name.

I think those pictures are really cute if you can find ones who’s words fit/make sense for your wedding party.

But for ideas, here’s what we got my girls:

And here’s what we got his guys:

Just think of what you might like to receive and something you would actually use, it doesnt have to scream “bridesmaid” I got them designer purses, not bags but actual wallet size purses that are usually about $60 each but we got them on sale.

my cousin got us these make up/travel bags from pottery barn and there were two different sizes, both were monogramed and a small silver mongramed mirror. It is the ONLY BM gift I have used over and over again. (and i hate monogramed bags!)

Ours were solid, but this is similar.

I got our ladies each an 18′ string of 6mm pearls. It’s the most versatile length/size of necklace and a Southern staple. Only two of them chose to wear the necklace during the ceremony.

@peacockchris: I got those same ones.

I also got them sleeping masks, a small clutch for each, a note caddy, and flip flops. oh and I put it all in a beach bag for each.

We live in Miami, FL so all this is stuff I know the girls will use.

I hope this helps. 🙂

I got my bridesmaids some nice raw silk shawls to keep their arms warm (and to match their shoes). I also got each of them a different salt & pepper shaker set from Jonathan Adler, each of which seemed to match their unique personality or sense of style:

Here’s what I did for my girls:

– Bag from Bath and Body Works – could be used for gym, groceries, etc. (I got each girl a different color)

– Hanger with initial on it, for dress photos

– Ivory pashmina for the wedding and beyond 🙂

Love Letters of Great Men poetry book

Not super involved, but some nice things for them 🙂

You could do Starbucks gift cards or Amazon gift cards so that they can get anything they want.  I considered getting each of them a gift card to somewhere that meant something to us or reminded me of them (Barnes and Noble for a teacher friend, a little artsy knick-knack shop for another friend that we used to browse, etc).

The trouble with gift cards is they know exactly how much $ you spent. You didn’t say what your budget is though….

I really do like the alphabet/name gift you described. I would personally like that! Plus it would be very inexpensive to do if you take the photos yourself…my cousin did that, too and they look awesome!

i had my cousin crochet clutches for them to hold instead of flowers, so thats part of their gift….i’m also giving them a bottle of wine with a wine tag that i made for the wedding as a keepsake and a monogramed wine glass with their first initial on it….

I plan on getting my girls an Ulta (kind of like Sephora) gift card so they can all buy makeup or beauty products and probably a make up bag to suit their own unique styles. I am a big believer on buying gifts that can be used after the wedding, although I think the hangers and stuff like that are cute… I can just see them being put into the closet after the wedding and never to be seen again.
