I really like jewelry, like a necklace or earrings. Doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive. Personally I like really delicate stuff. This is something I’m likely to wear for years and always remember where it came from.

I have never been a Bridesmaid or Best Man so I don’t have a favorite gift.  Do these other two girls have any special interests or hobbies?  If so, maybe you can get a gift related to that so they’ll be able to get a lot of use out of it.

I got all my girls the same things. I have a lot of drama going on so I needed it to be simple. I went to the coach store, got 4 pink (small) purses for each girl (BM too) and the color matches the sash on the dresses that they are wearing so its a usable gift for the day of the wedding. They were 50% off and I got them for $49.99. The sales woman told me about a bride who got all her maids a wristlit from coach. I thought that was a good Idea. They run $39.99. Good luck.

I think i’m going to make my girls little customized photo books from shutterfly or iphoto with special pics and memories of us.  Super cheap, really easy, very meaningful  🙂 good luck!

I am giving my girls a mish mash of stuff.

In a vintage cigar box (to match my vintage modern theme) I have put in:

a fascinator for them to wear with their dresses, a vintage hankercheif that I silkscreen their names and wedding monogram on, and then a little something personal to each person (For my scarf friend there is a thinly woven scarf from anthro, for my sister, there is a silk shift lingerie from VS, etc).

And tied the box with vintage twine with a little note

I am also going to go to Coach to get some purses for my BMs.  If you go over Labor Day weekend to an Outlet store, they have AWESOME sales going on. I also have a bridesman, so I will get him a money clip or wallet from there. 

Good luck wtih finding your gifts!

I made jewelry: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/finally-finished-my-diy-bridesmaid-jewelry-and-gifts and gave them personalized black tote bags that turned out really cute.  If it were me, I would love to either have the bride pay for something I would need for the wedding- anything like a manicure or getting my hair done or the shoes or a hotel room for the night.  I think that would be a nice gesture, I wish I could do that for my BMs.

These can be pretty pricey, but if you have the means I think they make amazing gifts: city experiences. You can find them for most major cities in the U.S. — just google it. Here’s an example for NYC: http://www.newyorkfirst.com/floors/2.html

I’m making my Maid/Matron of Honor and my two flower girls bracelets. My Maid/Matron of Honor loves jewelery and my flower girls are very girly girls so they’ll love them!

The one gift I liked that I wish I would have done (if i’d done traditional gifts, that is–i covered their dress, hair, and makeup instead) was the custom silver bangle bracelets and then have something sweet stamped onto the inside. Every girl can use a classic bracelet like that =]. I’m keeping them in mind for birthdays and whatnot

I got my BMs and Maid/Matron of Honor pearl pendant necklace with matching earrings from Overstock.com and they all seemed really pleased!
