It sounds like you have a lot of good stuff! I am thinking of giving a monogrammed robe but that might be too much. Maybe nail polish or lip gloss to wear the day of??

Personally, that sounds like plenty to me.  If you really want to include one more thing that’s reasonably priced, you could always just bake everyone some cookies or yummy treats and put them in cute baggies with a bottle of water.  They’ll probably want some snacks either while their getting ready or they can have them for after the wedding when the late night hunger hits.

Are you crafty?  I made wine glass charms for each of them, and they were personalized.  Each gal got 6 charms, and each charm was unique to them and our relationship.  The whole project was super cheap, because you can get the wire/beads at a craft store and charms online for dirt cheap, less than 50 cents each.  Of course, all my girls liked wine and the wedding was at a winery, so that was sort of a tie-in.  I’ve also seen diy painted wine glasses (apparently I’m a wino), or personalized hangers for them to put their bridesmaid dresses on where the wire says their name.

Maybe think of something you would get each of them for Christmas or their birthday for a set amount of money.  That way, each one will have something that is definitely just for them and definitely not a wedding-related gift.  For example, maybe Bridesmaid A would love this book for $10, and Bridesmaid B would want a $10 bottle of wine, etc.

Hmmm… I only had one Bridesmaid and I got her a shawl and Marc Jacobs iPhone cover… so my advice doesn’t really come from experience.

Maybe a Starbucks giftcard? Or else something that isn’t the same for each girl, something that’s more about your relationship with each individually? Like a keychain with an apple on it for your teacher friend, a wine stopper for the wine afficianado, a hat from your alma mater for your college buddy, etc.

I got my girls hangers with their names in the metal (and one for my mom and one for me that says Mrs. [groom’s last name]).  I found a bunch of options on etsy.  This is the shop I got mine from: http://www.etsy.com/listing/76742413/personalized-wedding-hanger-maple-for

She was fast and the hangers are beautiful.  I cannot wait to see the photos of our dresses hanging on them day of!  My mom cried when she saw them. but my maids don’t know yet.

That sounds like a pretty good amount of swag!  😀 But if you want to do one more thing, I saw a picture of a gift which was personalized  wood hangers for them to hang their dresses on during the day. Basically, they had the girl’s name and the date of the wedding on them, I believe they were engraved with a wood burner. To me, that is something you could easily do for them on your own for a low cost and it wouldnt take too much time either. 

 

Here are some pics of some I found online:

@spatrick:  Don’t spray paint wine glasses! Spray paint isn’t food safe… there is food safe paint you can use on glasses but I don’t know if there’s spray forms…
