Don’t ask. Just think about each girl. What stores do they shop at? Or have they been eyeing a specific item recently? If one person got a new house, I’d get them a gift certificate to C&B or PB. If they enjoy pampering, I’d do a spa gift certificate.

you could get those girls a gift certificate to Sephora. Hair and makeup products galore!

Ooh, for makeup I’d love a gift card to Ulta or Sephora (whichever is in their area). They also sell perfume there, and they’d be able to pick out their own, which is a nice gift.

For the spa, you should find a spa in your BM’s town. I have gotten a spa gift certificate online before, but whether or not spas around your BMs have this option, I don’t know. It would take some effort to figure it all out.

I’d vote Macys – much more options as to what they could choose to get with it.

I know i’d definitely want Sephora, but that’s where I like to buy my makeup and they have a lot of different things to pick from. Plus it’s soooooooo fun to go there. I could spend hours in that store!

I vote Sephora. For me it is just a better shopping experience than going to the makeup counters at department stores.

For the clothing- do you know if they have a Simon mall? I’ve gotten gift cards to the mall before- so you can use it anywhere in the mall. If not, I’d go with a department store if you’re not sure of a favorite store, so they have more options. My favorite is Dillards, but if they don’t have one near them, I’d go with Macy’s.

I vote Sephora! While I love Macys (and actually get my makeup from the Origins counter), I feel that since the prices at Sephora are cheaper, they would get more out of going there.

Cute idea!  I love Sephora – great idea  for gift certificates!

Are any of your bridesmaids flying in for your wedding?  If so, a gift basket with full sized “liquids” might be hard to transport back.
