felicitah86: I need to stop purchasing bridesmaid gifts. I have gone way over budget on this. I keep finding things I know they will love!!! Some thoughts from my browsing:
Tote: I went to Vera Bradley Outlet because I was looking on Etsy and thought I could find name brand for the same price. I was correct. I bought huge beach totes for like $22/each with an 80% off sale (these are frequent – try to go on a day that is NOT a popular shopping day for the best sales).
Bottle Openers: Look for something unique!
Lipgloss and Lotions: Both from Victoria’s Secret, lotion in 3 oz bottles, Bath and Body would be nice too.
Glass Water Bottles, monogrammed: I bought a voss water bottles, removed the wording with a razor, and etched them myself (martha stewart has a tutorial) with cool designs and their monogram. My girls prefer glass to plastic.
Pinch Minimergency Kits: Super tiny, and can be found online for under $15…not a steal, but not bad either. Can be made yourself too.
Yankee Candle Car Jars: I picked out beachy scents like I have seen them using 🙂 Regular candles might be nice too if you know they like them. Scents can be tricky though so be careful with this one!
Jewelry: A nice set, bracelet (Alex and Ani are nice!), earrings. They do not have to wear them the day of the wedding, though they certainly could.
Bridesmaids Robes: DO NOT COUNT AS A “GIFT” but my maids are ridiculously excited about them, and they picked out their own colors. May be a nice idea.
OH! And for flower girl/junior bridesmaid: mini versions of the totes with fun-shaped chapsticks and a hand-embroidered hankie from Etsy (also some on wedding chicks that are super cute and more cost effective).
ETA: I changed the wording on this to be more clear and informative.
