    I love the idea of a portrait of her home! I think that’s something special that would go well with the other portraits you’ve done for her. πŸ™‚

    I love the painting! So super cute. I would be thrilled to have one of my house if I were your Maid/Matron of Honor.

    If I were your bridesmaid I would prefer an individualized gift to having my hair done, as that is something that is more for your big day than for my own enjoyment. How many times have you heard bridesmaids complain about how much they hated the hairdo they got for a wedding? It’s so common, because they are likely using someone who has never touched their hair before. That’s why I would never give hair or makeup for my wedding as a gift.

    I think $25 is a good price though, in addition to your earrings. Perhaps nice bottles of wine all around?

    I like something that you can keep. A personalized flask with their personal initials? Fill it with something yummy?

    You can totally get good bottles of wine for less than that. I live in California. I’ve been to a ton of wineries. Let me know if you want suggestions. Just let me know what types of bottles you would like and I can suggest it to you. Cost plus has great deals on good wine. So does Cost-co. Trader Joes also has great options. 

    Get some California goodies, and I googled wine labels before and you can put those on any bottle. 

    Hmmm…but I guess that doesn’t last either. But if the label is cute, they’ll keep the bottle. I like to stick candles in them and have them as decorations.
