You could get something engravable.  The last wedding I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in, the bride bought us the wedding jewelry and a small metal jewelry box with our names engraved in them.

When most people talk about personalizing them, they don’t mean engraving or embroidering names/initials on anything. They generally mean pick the gift that best suits each bridesmaid. For example, if one is into cooking or baking, get her something related to that. If another has a favorite entertainer, get her something that she would enjoy that that person has done. That way, it comes across as more useful than some generic gift from a wedding catalog.

i agree with ember78. my friend gave each of us different gold purses to match our dresses, filled with makeup that she thought we would like and be good for us because we were doing our own makeup. my girls are wearing different dresses, so i’m buying them different jewelry (they’re also very picky, one only wears silver, one has very sensitive skin, etc).

I think anything you get that’s not 6 of a kind is good.  I am getting my maids all Coach wristlets, but each in a different pattern.  It’s a small thing, but I want it to show that I put some thought into it.

You could also get them unique jewelry to wear instead of all the same, or you could have an item monogrammed.  You don’t have to make it for it to be personal.

Even if everyone get the same gift a nice personalized note in a card could be enough.  For a wedding I was in, the bride took time to write a really beautiful note to each one of us and included different pictures in each of the cards.  It was great!

Since I’m having a southern wedding, I’m getting mason jars with each of the girls names engraved in it. That way they can each have one the day of getting ready at the wedding, and I’ll have my own, too!!

And I also went out and bought 6 white zip-up hoodies. I’m getting the small of the back embroidered with their names.

I hate getting the traditional “bridesmaid” t-shirt because although it’s good for the bride, the bridesmaids can’t really wear it again unless it’s under another shirt or something.

Good luck! I love personalized gifts 🙂
