bananastand:  Maybe a nicer neutral lip gloss that they might not splurge on for themselves.  I made my BM’s little care bags and I know some used Advil, bandaids and chocolates on the wedding day.  Those things don’t cost much but they are thoughtful.

I’m giving each of my bridesmaid a Kate Spade clutch (it was on sale) and Kate Spade bangles (also went on sale).  They don’t have to wear the bangle on the wedding day though, but they totally can and would be cute!  I’m also stuck for other ideas so I’m going to follow this thread 🙂

bananastand:  put in a little “emergency kit” in the clutches like bandaid’s, advil, tums, things they may need to use the day of the wedding or the day after, etc.

bananastand:  it depeneds on your BM’s style. I personally wouldn’t wear it but I would hang it on my vanity or something of that nature.

bananastand:  love those!  I would totally use it as a charm for their bouquets (and that way you can tell who’s whos).  I’m doing clover leaf charms for mine – we’re getting married on St. Patrick’s Day 😉

The clutch I was given as a Bridesmaid or Best Man had lip gloss, nail polish, kleenex, travel deoderant…other stuff like that. It was basically all the stuff I might’ve needed but forgotten to bring to the hotel. Which was actually super helpful because I totally forgot to pack my deoderant!

I gave clutches for my bridesmaid, chapstick, lotion, little stuff in each one.

I was a bridesmaid and she also gave clutches.  On her she had little initial letters that where attached.  It was super cute.  Still use mine, 2 years later.

How about a pack of gum?  There’s a lot of waiting around without breaks for the bridal party (yourself included) and it’s a quick way to freshen up.  I’d go with a chapstick too unless their makeup would keep that from being useful.  Not as keen on the lotion idea unless you are sure you’re getting a scent they’d like – for example some people love flower scents but others can’t stand that and prefer a fruit or vanilla scent.  Nail clipper might be nice if you’re still looking for ideas – don’t we all break one just when we don’t want to?
