We are planning to do custom little gift baskets for each one of ours…  Coloring books of their favorite characters, action figures, etc.  Inside the basket will also be a small little keepsake for each (like a necklace for the girls, etc)

That way they have something that they will enjoy as a real gift and a thank you from us, but also something they can keep through the years.

My advice is that you give them something that will keep them occupied and quiet during the ceremony.  And/or if you want to give them something to wear for the wedding, like a necklace.  I wouldn’t worry too much about something terribly sentimentel, especially at those ages.  It will likely not care too much, or it will get broken.  I come from the land of Experience.

Other than that, if you are looking for stuff, just treat it like Christmas, like what Querida is saying.  Get them some toys they’ll think are fun.

For our ring bearers, we found out their favorite animal, letting them chose whatever they wanted, we are going to Build-A-Bear and going to make the animals with the tuxedos on them and get them another outfit.  For the ceremony, I was going to lightly stitch 2 rings on one hand of each of the bears and then, their moms can remove them afterwards.  They will carry them up the aisle with them.  They will be able to play with them during the ceremony and reception and afterwards, change the outfit and that will be their gift. 

We really hoped to be able to take them themselves to make/pick-out the bears but logistics of locations really didn’t work out.  One of them likes the penguin and the other a dog (that’s what their moms suggested), so that’s what we’re doing.  (I was actually hoping one of them would pick the red lobster or something fun like that.  If we had a flower girl we were going to do the same, but they have wedding dresses for outfits. They’re young enough that this is age appropriate for them.

We haven’t done that yet.  I hadn’t thought about it yet . . . . Hmmmm.  

This was the easiest of the gifts so far, lol. I have nothing for the rest of my Bridal Party or Parents or Groom. 🙂

For the little girls: I got cute little bags for them with their names & a little flower embroidered on it. I then filled each with a Wedding Day Barbie, and little toys to keep them entertained…coloring books, crayons, playdough, etc.

For the little boy: He LOVES Spiderman & toy cars…so I got him a Spiderman backpack & put a 5 pack of Hot Wheels, a handheld game, and a puzzle!

Those were the best gifts to pick out…because Fiance & I are still kids at heart!

We only have a flower girl. I bought a little jewelry set for her. (Faux pearls: necklace, earrings, & bracelet) It matches the necklace & earrings that I’m wearing. I thought about going and getting a little purse with her inital on it, & filling it with girly things for her. I probably won’t give it to her until after the reception though, reason being, there will be other little kids, and they will want things too.

During the reception, I’m planning on have coloring pages for the kids, that are wedding themed. I figured they would like that. And we talked about serving fresh apple cider for the kids. We’re all about including the kids. (They range from ages 3 – 8. )

 

LaurenEB, I love the idea with the teddy bears! That’s so cute!

My aunt got the kiddies video games with headphones to use during the ceremony because her wedding was LOOOONG- and those kids really didn’t want to be there, but the video games entranced them enough that they didn’t even realize they were were sitting there for 2 hours.

I agree with the above poster, get them something to keep them occupied- I doubt they will remember the gift they recieved or even keep it. I can’t remember what I got, if anything, at either of my aunts’ wedding when I was flower girl. I’m hoping it was candy because that would have been a great gift.

I always thought it was so cute to give a flower girl a piece of jewelry.  http://www.mellabeads.com has adorable flower girl pieces.
