@mecattacow:  I think the jewelry is just fine. I wouldn’t consider the bouquet part of the gift though since they have to have it anyway. I’ve gotten an array of gifts including pearl earrings, pearl necklace, make up, anklet (which I gave away), etc. Based on my experience of being a bridesmaid six times, your gift is good to go.

I would add a small, personal gift like a gift certificate for a mani/pedi for the ladies, or make a relaxation basket with a nice candle, bath salts/bubbles, lotions etc.  I generally don’t think you can count something a gift if they would not have to have the item if it weren’t for your wedding, and while you’ve been very generous to cover all of their wedding-related expenses, those things are all still for your wedding. Something non-wedding-related would be a meaningful Thank You for all of their time and support.

I’d also steer clear of personalized souvenirs and things; while the “memory cup” is a nice idea on paper, chances are those cups that you spend so much time and money on will just end up collecting dust on a shelf somewhere. People for the most part don’t use those little souvenirs.  Personalized flask will get used, personalized teacup probably won’t.
