we got our bridal party things like we would for their birthdays. We spent about $200 each. How much you spend depends on your budget/finances….

Spend what you can afford; it doesn’t have to be extravagent. A $20 gift is just as wonderful as a $200 IF you put effort and thought into it. Now, I’m a believer that anything you give for the wedding doesn’t count as a bridesmaid gift (necklace to wear during the ceremony, paying for make-up, etc.) Think about each bridesmaid: what would you buy for them as a present, if the wedding had nothing to do with it? You seem to want to give them both trinket boxes; are they the type of girls who would USE trinket boxes? Or is it just an accessory for the wedding necklace?

Honestly, my favorite things I’ve gotten from being  a bridesmaid … letters. They cost nothing (or almost nothing, if you go with a fancy card) and mean a lot, sentimentally speaking. These are a good place to start. And again, anything that identifies them as an individual and isn’t 100% wedding-related will go well. Word of warning: bathrobes, cardigans, tank tops, tote bags, anything with the words “BRIDESMAIDS” on it – these make for great photo props but probably won’t be kept forever. And again, that’s purely wedding-based. Get them something that will make them happy to be your friend, not just your maid, for a long while to come 🙂
