Alright, so far, I’ve gotten my girls:
- A personalized, insulated, lunch bag (they all bring their lunch to work)
- A red satin robe for the day of the wedding
- A champagne colored leather Coach wristlet
I’m also considering getting them an ADORABLE 5 year journal that either ask a different question each day or write a paragraph each day. (5 years appear on one page… I think it’s pretty neat to look back at memories.)
I may also get them their bridesmaids jewelry… But what else? I’d really like to personalize somehow, but all of the gifts for them that I can think of get really expensive (Kindle, Tiffany Necklace, etc!)

DATE TWIN!!! YAY! I think what you already got for them is enough. The Coach wristlet would have been fine on its own for me LOL. If you want to personalize them somehow, get a tote from michaels for joanns and embrioder their names on it, then put their gifts in it to give them.

@sonj818: I’m pretty sure you are every bridesmaids dream lol. Perhaps get them a customized tote to put it all in?

I love the 5 year diary!!! I have one and even though I forget to fill it in, it’s so neat to look back at what I did a year ago today. Definitely add that in, and then I think that’s more than enough!

Their nicknames are already embroidered on the lunch bag…
The crazy part is how “little” I’ve spent… The lunch bags were $5, robe was $6, wristlet (on sale at Coach Outlet!) was $37.

Maybe you can write a personalized note to each of them on some nice stationary. Its something a little more sentimental. Just an idea?! 🙂

@Button: It was a super sale at JC Penney’s a couple of months ago.
I’ve seen postings that say Victoria’s Secret marks them down during the semi-annual sale, too.
ALSO, something I figured out on wedding channel dot com… If you add items into your basket and then leave the site for a day, you sometimes get a 10% off coupon!!

@sonj818: Your gifts sound great, and I love the idea of the 5-year journal (you should totally add that)! Where do you get the journals from?
@PennyTee: Those flat iron covers are so cute! Where did you get them?

I ordered them through my friend’s website. She sells all sorts of monogrammed items. With very reasonable prices. She has PayPal & everything, so its secure. If you want, PM me & I can give you her info. I ordered one for myself and I love it.. Its so convenient for trips instead of packing a hot iron in your bag.

Here is what I got/am getting my girls”
- Robe to get ready in
- Earrings to match their dress
- Necklace to match their dress
- Real pearl bracelet (snagged them at 94% off)
- Bridesmaid underwear
- Personalized wine glass http://www.etsy.com/listing/55601225/bridesmaids-4-glasses-custom-hand
- Bottle of wine
- And I plan on making each of them a photo book with our pictures throughout the years – I have known them all for 10 years or longer
Total it will all be less than $100 a girl, which I think is reasonable

@PennyTee: I’d love the information if you could PM it to me. I hate waiting for the flat iron to cool so I can pack it.
