@drumkitt:  I don’t see anything wrong with the necklaces. I would say that maybe you could just give them the card and a picture of you with each of them .. you could have a theme.. like your first picture together.. or your last picture as a single woman.. something like that would be cute

@MrsNeutrino:  I agree, a keepsake it needent be expensive.  Maybe a DIY picture frame with a pictue of you and them in it.

@drumkitt:  If you’re super artisitc, could you buy each lady a bottle of their favorite wine, but draw/design/paint a creative, unique label for it?  Or maybe make your own artistic cards as a thank you to them for being there for you along with the necklaces?

How about some 80s themed cookies in nice boxes with thank you notes? These are funny, and you could do some that are just squares that say “Thank you” on them in coordinating colors:

If you wanted to do more, you could add a $5 GC to a coffee shop or something.

The best advice I’ve heard is to shop for them like it’s christmas or their birthday. You may not necessarily want to get everyone the same thing, because everyone’s not the same. If you really want to give them something meaningful, think about how they are unique and what their tastes are and come up with something based on this. Maybe some girls would like those clutches, so get them clutches, maybe the other ones want pajamas πŸ˜‰ so get them a cute $10 Target PJ set or a 2 for 50 VS sleep shirt.

As an example, what I’m doing is asking my Maid/Matron of Honor & sister to forego giving me a wedding present and to handmake 6 purses for each of my 6 other BMs. I am on a tight budget and this saves us both money. It is really cool though because we went to the fabric store and picked out fabric and different purse shapes based on each friend.

@danicalifornia:  I was thinking the same.  If two like to spend time in pajamas…pajamas it is.  Maybe neon?  And neon clutches for the others??

πŸ™‚  I’m offbeat too.  And i’d love a zombie brain necklace.  My cousin got me a zombie brain jello mold which is pretty fun to use.

With that said, I’m getting my gals a customized spa robe.  It has their first initial and name in different colors.  Our wedding will be near a pool so I’m thinking let’s hang out by the pool πŸ™‚

I made my girls wineglasses! One of my BM’s husband saw them and absolutely loved the idea…
