Why not get them each a different gift customized for their own personalities and styles?  There’s no rule saying you need to get each of them the same thing.

@abbie017:  Agreed. I’m most like your first and third bridesmaids, so while I’d appreciate anything they liked, something that feels like you spent the time choosing it for ME would love lovely.

BM3 – I was going to suggest checking out for ren faires around you, but your wedding is earlier than most of them start in colder areas. I absolutely LOVE these (I own two of them, plus another of her figurines). I’m sure there’s lots of cool stuff on Etsy, too.

I third the idea of getting them different gifts (it’s what I’m doing for my BM’s too). For the second one, the one who owns a farm, look into The Heifer Project. You can donate an animal to a village in need – gaots for milk, etc.

@dragonlover:  That sounds like a great idea! That’s what I’m doing too. I set a budget of $100 per girl. I did get them each a tote bag ($25) with their initial, in their favorite color. Then inside the tote I put: a Michael Kors clutch for BM1, the new polaroid camera for BM2, Kate Spade Earrings for BM3, and some Baltimore Ravens and some college gear for BM4. I spent the same amount on each, but each gift is personalized to their tastes.
