    My sister gave us a Coach Wristlet for her BM gift… it was OK, I use it occasionally, but you’d have to make sure you picked a style that each girl would like and be able to use.

    The second gift option seems nice, I’d again make sure to pick a wristlet and lip gloss color and lotion scent that each girl would like.

    I love the shoe insoles. Do you mind if I steal it?

    are they the type of girls who would use a wristlet? I know most of my friends have big ol’ handbags so for me a wristlet would be out.

    I voted for practical stuff, but instead of all the blotting papers insoles, writstlet, etc., buy them all something individually. I usually have my own blotting papers, and I have a nice little collection of clutches, and I’m really particular about everything else. I think it would be great to purchase their shoes, and then maybe get them all gift cards to their favorite stores or a mani/pedi gift certificate or something. Include a personalized and heartfelt note to each girl and you’re good to go!

    I really like the idea of the practical gifts.  I love the Coach wristlet, but as far as usage goes, the practical gifts are probably going to be better.

    I voted for the coach wristlet because a lot of girls have their “favorite” types of beauty products (for example the lip gloss and lotion).

    I would suggest a modified version of #2.

    Do you have pics you can post of either wristlet?

    I was anti the Coach wristlets, but then I found them for a really great price, and after getting so many compliments about my own wristlet, I ended up getting them each one.  I think it’s great for a night out, it can hold a license, bank card & some cash.  I paid about $32 a piece for them and will give it to them along with flip flops, a pashmina & a gift card to get their nails done.

    I like the idea of the practical gifts but then again I have a Coach wristlet so maybe that is getting in the way of my judgement. I just think little baskets with the shoes as the centerpiece and the other stuff all around sounds so fun. I love assorted gifts. ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus, I am always thinking of photo ops for the wedding day.

    I went to a Coach outlet and they were on sale for $39, plus an additional 20% and since it was in Delaware, no tax . . . did I do that math right?  Hahaha!  My fiance actually paid for them for me.  I made it up to him by paying for a pair of $81 shoes for him . . . so, I guess I paid $81 for them ๐Ÿ™‚

    The main reason I was against them is because none of my girls are into name brands, but I managed to get solid leather wristlets, no C’s all over them, which is a good thing.  I got 2 black, 1 tan & one coral.

    Coach outlet regularly has reallly good prices on their wristlets, I almost picked I saw  a little purple, brown or tan leather one for $19 once.  They sometimes have nice little going out bags for about $50 also – that would fit cash & cards, camera, phone, keys, and a few misc items for a night out.

    My vote would be for the coach wristlet…but I’m biased because I just bought one and love it ๐Ÿ™‚ And I found it at the coach outlet for $19, amazing deal! I wouldn’t vote to spend full price on one though, that’s too expensive for a tiny wristlet.
