I got my BM’s 2 gifts and made a third. They’re getting beautiful travel jewelry bags, a custom necklace with a birthstone and initials(from Etsy!) and a tote I decorated myself. The totes didn’t come out PERFECTLY, but they all know how craft-disabled I am, so I know they’re going to appreciate the fact that I tried.

I’m getting my girls a bag of Cozy Fall Things (to go along with our fall theme):
Starbucks Marshmallow Hot Chocolate, fuzzy slippers, autumn-scented candle, maybe a necklace?

@Equine_Breeder: I did the same thing for my girls! Wandered around Target and came out with autumn-scented candles, hot chocolate, and slippers for them.

Haha yep! I ended up getting each of them a soft fleece blanket, and then bath oil, makeup, a scarf, and pajama pants for each girl respectively to give a little personal touch. I spent about $25 on each one so I think I did okay

I have 6 bridesmaids and got them all medium Le Sportsac weekender bags. Here’s a pic of the bag so you can see the size, but the ones I got are different patterns. I scoured the TJ Maxx’s where I live and was able to find 6 of them within a couple of weeks.
I also ordered monogramed oversized men’s shirts to wear while getting ready and I’ll put that in their bags. Though that’s more a “gift” for me since I order them because I wanted the photo ops and don’t really expect them to wear them again.
I can’t decide if I need to get anything else!

I got my girls black quilted zipper makeup bags with their first initial embroidered on the front corner and inside is a mini bottle of moscato, a handwritten thank you card for each girl and a pandora charm that is loosely related to our wedding since I know they all have the bracelets. I have a bridesman so he got the mini moscato and a pair of silver engraved cufflinks since he wears suits to work every day.
My bridesman and Maid/Matron of Honor have done a TON of work together to help us with everything and have been amazing. I included a photo book for each of them that I made through Shutterfly loaded with photos of us over the past 15 years.
For the parents, we ordered them custom yankee candle large jars with a photo of us at our shower and the names and date on the label. (We did smaller version yankee candle votives for our actual favors)

My BMs received Plum Pretty Sugar robes (http://store.plumprettysugar.com/cotton-voile-robes-knee-length/) and had their hair and makeup paid for…they really appreciated these gifts and loved that the robes could be worn daily after the wedding!
