I mostly have my bridesmaid gifts complete, but wanted to see how I could round them out as well as get your opinions.
I bought really cute Kate Spade small purses at the outlet store for $58 each (originally $158!) in a color each with adore! I already bought OPI nail polishes long ago for them (in a dark navy blue — my wedding color) which I didn’t think I’d end up giving them — but I figure I’d put those in there. I wanted to add a third thing to round this gift out. I was thinking maybe a gift card, but I really only wanted to spend about $75 total so that would leave me with $15. Is that too low of an amount for a gc? I don’t want to get a $15 Macy’s gift card or DSW because they’d have to pony up some money if they wanted to buy anything there really. The best gc I can think of would be Target.
What are your thoughts on a Target gift card? Any other gc suggestions? Or do you have any suggestions for something that is about $15 that I can get them and will fit in a smaller purse? Would you rather get a gift card or some other kind of trinket?
Thanks in advance, bees!

Hmmm… what about a gift card to Starbucks, movies, cafe, itunes? Amazon might also be good. It doesn’t have to be the same for every girl.
You could also look at getting them some earrings (different ones for each girl of course). You might find someting cute on Etsy or get a Groupon.

You could get them pearl earrings or a nice necklace/bracelet (try Etsy) or some kind of small perfumed spritzer. Or flipflops in case their feet get sore. It already sounds great! I do think $15 is low for a gift card if you want to that route though, $25 would be better.

$15 would be fine for Starbucks or the like. Having 5 lattes on you would be great.

Maybe you cld put a good brand of lip gloss and a cute compact mirror. I’m sure they will be happy with the purse alone though 🙂

I probably would shy away from giving a gift card in such a nominal amount. I am going a bit overboard with my bridesmaids . Maybe instead of the $15 card you can get one of those hangers with their names on it? I am actually going to make some of those myself to add.

I agree that $15 to a place like Starbucks, Panera, etc. would be great. If you know their preferences, you can personalize them a bit, too (maybe one doesn’t drink coffee so you could go with a cafe she likes instead).

Or if one of them is into music, movies, and apps, iTunes gift cards are great!

Skittles131: You could each get them a giftcard that “fits” them. Maybe a month Netflix subscription for the TV/Movie addict, iTunes giftcard for the music lover, Starbucks for the coffee fiend, Sephora for someone who loves their makeup, etc.

I agree with others about the giftcards-starbucks, etc.
Two other ideas: a magazine subscription(i got for one of my girls because she really enjoys magazines) or a one time birchbox, or ipsy bag if they are interested in beauty products.

I think a Giftcard to target is great! There is something for everyone at target
