Does anyone have any really creative/fun ideas for Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts? I’d like to stay under $50/each or so because I have 8 girls and I’ve already spent ~$30/each on them so far. I had thought about pearls, but most of them have white pearls already. I would LOVE to get them black pearls (their dresses are black), but they’re extremely expensive. Any other thoughts?? I hate to get them something they won’t use/don’t like!
Also, any ideas about what my fiance can get his men? He originally wanted to do Costas… but again, that can get pretty pricey!

What did you buy so far?
My Fi had bar signs made for each of his groomsmen based on their personalities..
One hockey themed..one general sports theme…ect..
All with their names on them for $40.00
We ordered from this website..have not received them yet, so I can’t really attest to the quality.

I’ve seen black pearls at Claire’s, they are probably not too expensive.
There are a lot of small things you could get them, like makeup kit, or a robe. Girly stuff like that. You could also treat them to a beauty day, get mani+pedi’s or facials with them a few days before the wedding.
As for guys, you can do “traditional” gifts, they are usually very inexpensive on weddingchannelstore.com and those type of sites, they have personalized things like money clips, beer mugs, etc. Good luck! 🙂

@Stephanie18x: Try searching for stuff on Etsy. I bought so much stuff on that site for my wedding! One unique thing I did for my Bridesmaid or Best Man was to get them a little charm to attach to their bouquets from AristoCrafty. For the guys, what about something like a personalized name sign from FrittsCreative?

@Stephanie18x: I just bought all of my BMs little Coach wristlets for $35 each (at the outlets, with their ‘additional’ 30% coupon they give out all the time). I got all of mine the same, but they had a bunch of different styles.
My FH just created custom rare craft beer 4-packs for his Groomsmen and is getting them personalized beer mugs…not super creative but he was so into getting the beer, it was cute 🙂
