If they like lotion, it would be cute to do trial sizes of Bath & Body Works’ P.S. I love you (I know, I’m cheesy! lol).

Something else you could do is tumblers so they don’t spill drinks on themselves while getting ready on the big day.

You could go wedding themed:

Or personalized:

Or my personal favorite, Lilly Pulitzer, because they come in lots of different patterns that you could choose for your girls:

@lovelylight99:  What do you mean by girly stuff? If you mean lotions and bath gels and stuff, I think that sort of stuff gets gifted a lot so I have a ton of it! And I will never use most of it because I have really sensitive skin and have to be careful with scents.

I think gift cards a good idea, I would maybe do different ones though, more personalized to their interests.

I haven’t started shopping yet but I have been getting ideas. I am doing different things for each girl instead of trying to find one thing they would all like. For one I am getting her  a book (Anthro’s Penguin Classics Alice In Wonderland, her favorite, she went as Alice two Halloween’s in a row!), another I am looking at those mom necklaces with birthstones (she just had her third and probably last child). I just think it’s easier than finding a one size fits all gift. Also, I get some ideas from checking out their pinterest boards!

@lovelylight99:  Monogramming gifts pretty well guarantees they can’t be reused. How about one of those things you suggested (necklace, earrings, clutch) but not mongrammed, simply in a style you hope they like? I gave my girls necklaces.

I am so lost when it comes to this… my bridesmaids are gothic, one works for the irs and one is 17..  and none of them would like any of the stuff anyplace i have found either.   I dont want to do gift cards because it seems soo unpersonal.. but if you can do it… DO It… ill still be lost over here trying to think of something different , rather than a clutch that they have no clue what it is…  Undecided

I did necklaces from etsy for my bridesmaids. Their going to wear them for the wedding and they’re neutral and nice enough I think that they will wear them later too.

But since you mentioned necklaces I’m assuming that it’s not quite what your looking for? The care package is a cool idea. You could include food too, pretty much everyone enjoys food. Or have a girls day and take them to a spa, on a adventure, or have a sleepover/movie night? Or take them out to eat, all together or individually,  and pay for their meal (yay food again). 

 

Or if your looking for something really personal, write them a letter after the wedding. Like tell them have you appreciated them being there, pick out a detail or two to mention (How nice they looked, an epic toast, a silly moment, ect) and thank them again. It could come as an unexpected because no one writes letters anymore, and if you do it write it would be sweet and memorable.

@lovelylight99: When I saw the link I though that it was going to be one of those necklaces that was just the infinity symbol on it side, those I am not fond of. However, your necklaces are actually pretty cute. The design is nice and I’m a little bias, but I’m a fan of pearls.

 

And IDK if it would make a difference, but I chose to give matching necklaces because I let my girls pick their own dresses. I thought the matching necklaces would bring just enough unity to the group πŸ™‚

I gave picture frames (all different to attempt to match their home decor, and then sent them the pictures of each of them with me after the wedding), matching PJs since we had a slumber party the night before and a pair of roll-up flats which a couple of them say they still bring to hotels and stuff for slippers.
