Hi all 🙂
So here is what I’m planning on getting my girls:
1) A customized clutch from ModDotTextiles (totally different pattern for each girl suited to their tastes):
2) A piece of jewelry, different for each girl suited to their tastes:
3) A custom-screen-printed pashmina from Cyberoptix:
SO. My question is: since I’m getting them multiple items, should I just present them in a large gift bag? I’m also planning on finding nice/cute stationery to write a heartfelt letter of thanks to each girl on. Should I do a basket instead? I can’t afford to spend much more on them, so I don’t think I can do actual shoulder bags.

also, does anyone know where to find unique/nice gift bags? or particularly nice/neat stationery?

For my Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts, I bought some nice paper storage/decorative boxes from Michaels. Michaels always had sales so I got them for maybe $3-$15 each (depending on the size). I wrapped their gifts in tissue paper, tied a ribbon around the box, and called it a day.

@RunsWithBears: oh that’s a cute idea actually! i hadn’t really thought of going the box route, and i love michael’s boxes too.
i’m just scared i’m going to run out of MONEY spending on these girls! i just want to spoil them, but just the gifts are running a price tag of $540 BEFORE i spend any on wrap, stationery, or an extra gift for my Maid/Matron of Honor. aaand we’re also going to try and get gifts for our readers and his mom. -_-
as an aside, we have thought about paying for their hair instead of the scarf – but Fiance says he thinks the scarf is a necessity. i do love it, and i don’t think the clutch and jewelry are enough (they’re buying their own dresses and traveling 700 miles to my wedding), but i feel bad that they’re paying for their own hair.
