    Whta’s your budget like after all of those things?  Is everything you’re getting them so far to be used/worn the day of the wedding? 

    I might try and give them something a bit more personal.  Maybe a gift card to their favorite store, a necklace based on each girl’s taste, water bottle, blanket, some fun panties, etc.

    If you decide to go with more of an emergency kit, here are some additional suggestions (PP had some really good ones).

    Tissues

    Granola bar and/or candy

    Hand sanitizer

    Pocket/purse mirror

    I gave similar gifts to my bridesmaids, a pair of pearl/diamond dangly earings and a wristlet. I printed out day-of-schedules and included those in each along with a little tag with their name (since they all received the same one and carried them that day – no accidentally grabbing the wrong one). I also just included some lip gloss in each. The other item I gifted was VS sleep shirts.

    Tissues would be a good idea to include, nail file, mirror (as pp suggested). Extra bobby pins, maybe a personalized notepad for each bm – something that they could use after for grocery lists, etc.?

    Please do not take this the wrong way, but many do not consider these items as truly “bridesmaids gifts.”  If these are items to be used and worn on your wedding day, you are simply giving them part of their outfit.  This is how you want them to look.  While beautiful, when will they really use the clutch again?  I have read other posts about gifts that were not well-received, and items that are only used on the wedding day were often not appreciated by the wedding party.  This is likely why the posters above are suggesting additional gifts.

    @suprsweet:  Sorry, I don’t have a pic! I printed our monogoram on one wide, and just hand-wrote their name on the opposite side, cut them out in circles, punched with a heart-punch that I had, and tied to the wristlet with bakers twine leftover from the invites.

    I even noticed my sister using her wristlet months later and she still had her name tag on it, lol.

    Get them mini nail clippers, this is a must have for me everywhere I go!

    I would skip the flip flops.

    I would fill the cluth with like awsome goodies, like candy and junk lol

    Can you tell I am hungry? Seriously though, a snack for sure. I didnt get to eat all day in my Future Sister-In-Law wedding because I was so dan busy

    But, if you cant afford to fill the clutch a decent amount, skip that, I think it would be worse to only put one or 2 things in it then to not fill it at all.  But you can find great things at the dollar store.

    @suprsweet:  Here’s the thing… these are gifts TO your bridesmaids and shouldn’t be made up entirely of things that they use for the wedding. That’s not really a gift at all, that’s supplies for the wedding that you want them to wear.

    I like the idea of the bracelet, earrings and clutch, and fill the clutch with:

    -A personal gift that is not wedding related that is individual to each bridesmaid

    -A thoughtful handwritten letter

    -Their favourite candy or snacks!
