Just keep in mind that if it’s a prop for your wedding, it’s not really a gift.

I got them each a Camelbak bottle and filled it with a Tarte mascara, Josie Maran hand cream and a little vial of argan oil, a Fresh tinted lip balm, a necklace from Charming Charlie, and a couple ounces of loose-leaf tea and rock sugar from Teavana.  It’s all nice but neutral stuff that I think they’d all like, and we’re all active/outdoorsy people so the water bottle will be appreciated too.  Less than $100/girl, and I was able to get everything just walking around our local mall.

You do not have to buy anything wedding related. You can buy something that they are interested in.. like tea, a spa card..etc

I just found really cute makeup bags at Michaels for $1.50 EACH! Just go shop around! Clutches, makeup, bath and body basket, etc. You can definitely put together a gift. You have almost a month 🙂

vintagekitten:  The easiest thing I think is to do a set. Sets look elegant and it seems like they got a bunch of stuff but its all small things. Also, on ETSY if you want to get the BRIDESMAID shirts, those will come within like a week, I can give you the vendor- she was super fast.
 and They were Beautiful!!!!

By set, you can go to your local Duane Reade or Wallgreens, and with your wedding color in mind, get a nail polish, sanitzer, and eyeshadow or something for each girl. Get little satin or see through colored baggies and viola.

Cards can come later I think, when your sending Thank You notes, send them extra special ones.

I’m easy to please, but if you’re really pressed what about giftcards? Like Starbucks?

Keep it simple with a card and a gift card to their favorite restaurant or store.
