My bridesmaids and I have been friends since we were little girls. I want to get them some special gift(s) that is both symbolic and something they can use. I am stuck though and haven’t the foggiest idea where to begin. Any ideas? I am doing a beach wedding, so I don’t know if I should tie the beach in too.

Hey! There is another girl on here that wrote she’s getting her girls a tote with flip flops, a towel sunglasses etc. stuff they can use at the beach! I think that would be a sweet gift 🙂 The knot has their totes on sale right now. I got my girls this tote: http://weddingshop.theknot.com/weddingwarehouse/ProductPage.aspx?pId=P1633
They’re kind of small and wouldn’t fit all of the beach stuff, but if you just got them little things it would work… they have some bigger more beachy totes, but they’re more $ than they’re worth IMO. Try old navy or forever21 or something like that. They have cute totes sometimes.

I got the same totes Bella did, so I was going to suggest them as well. You can put small things in there, like nail polish, sunglasses, flip flops, sunscreen, etc.

I love Etsy (www.etsy.com) so would recommend looking there for custom, personalized gifts. Many vendors can monogram an item, or make it uniquely yours with personal touches. That’s what I am doing.

I’m getting my girls a few of the same things (mono tote, pashminas, probably some makeup and body care, maybe mani/pedi) and then they are both going to get something special. My Maid/Matron of Honor is getting a leather-bound journal with her name embossed on it b/c she’s a writer and my Bridesmaid or Best Man is getting Tiffany beer glasses.

For my cousins wedding, we all got flip flops (which were used as our wedding day shoes so we were all comfy!) and a beach bag. I tell ya, I wore those flip flops into the ground! And my beach bag is still used all the time.

Thank you all so much! Your ideas have been GREAT!
