I am having trouble trying to decide what I should get my flower girl. I have a couple ideas for her, but am really drawing a blank for the ringbearer. They are brother and sister and he is 5 and she is 2. Here are my ideas for the flower girl:
- Personalized flower girl story book with her name used throughout the story.
- Engraved locket with her name or initial.
- Monogrammed hanky that she can use as her “something old” at her wedding.
I really have no idea what to get for the ringbearer. :-/
Thanks for your help!

As the flower girl is only 2, I would give her the book and the handkerchief. She will love reading the book for several years and treasure the handkerchief later. I found necklaces were rarely worn by my daughter.
Ideas for the ringbearer:
-build a bear customized with a ring pillow- or with a ring security T shirt
-a ring security T shirt to wear the morning of the wedding and a gift card to Toys R Us
-silver piggybank in a shape they love- e,g, trains, football etc or something related to the theme of your wedding
– a ring bearer storybook

I say the book, we love books in this house and my daughter would love that (she’s 5).
I didn’t get my ring bearere or flower girl anything fancy. They are my kids and they have enough stuff. I got them stuff they can use in the wedding. My son got some socks and my daughter got flower headband and rhinestone headband that looks like a tiara.

I like the hanky idea, but i think if you or your Fiance are buying her flowergirl dress, i think just letting her keep the dress is a better gift. But if you are not buying her dress, if her parents are, than maybe the locket. It is the most practical because it is something she can wear at any age and will keep, but a hanky she might lose or get dirty or just throw it away.

It’s nice enough that as long as there’s not too much wear and tear, he could potentially keep it for years if he starts collecting model cars.
We also considered getting him this:
In the end, we didn’t really have time to get it though. And we hate theknot with a passion.
I would say the book or the locket for your flower girl? The hanky is a cute idea, but unless she is your daughter, or REALLY really close in another way, she probably won’t use it as her “something old.” Maybe she would, but I know I wouldn’t.
