@Contented_J:

I think that if you are willing to get two gifts one for the shower and one for the wedding that the one for the wedding could be for both of them and the one for the shower more personal and relating to your close relationship.

As for something you and your sisters can share why don’t you get something for her to wear that you can all use for your wedding too (the garter or a piece of jewelery to represent you all)

I like the idea of a piece of jewelery, she can use it as something new and then you all can use it as something borrowed :p, if you are all doing that sort of thing. 

otherwise you can maybe meet up the eve of the wedding and either write a letter or maybe do a slide show showing all your memories together, it can help revive the old better days and maybe a bit of quality time with all your sisters 🙂

Neat!  My spouse’s family had two traditions which we continued:

1 – using a cake knife that belonged to grandma

2 – having a pair of silver candle sticks present, which also belonged to grandma (great grandma?)

Being the youngest cousin, the older ones have done this for a good long time already!

Could you start something similar?  We had a ridiculous thong that we passed along in high school for at least three years 🙂

Is there something traditional/matching that everyone would like and you could purchase to ensure everyone gets it?  Are there any family traditions that you could provide the items for?

Again, part of my spouse’s family has a tradition of a lobster dinner on Dec 24th.  For us it was neat to get our own set of butter dishes, picks and crackers, from a cousin that we share that tradition with.  Do you have something similar that you could get a really nice set put together for?

[okay, seriously so many dangling prepositions up there, my apologies]

hopefully I’ll be back with more ideas later…

Is there an item in your parent’s house that has meaning to all of you?  Would you be able to search out some and buy them up?

If storage isn’t a terribly huge concern, can you buy 4x whatever item you choose and then keep them until the appropriate time?

Is there a poem or piece of artwork that would have meaning to all of you?  Artwork by a specific artist?  Do you have a cottage where you could get a photo, blow it up and frame it?

My experience has been gifts for showers and cash for actual weddings
