    What comes to mind when you think of each friend? For instance a prior friend of mine was very creative like me so that was a huge highlight of our friendship…can you give us some examples so we can help you..

    Personalized gift card? Get one a gift card for paint nite or something similar, card for yoga with goats, the new mom a gift card to a spa, etc. so cards to actual experiences/activities. Just a thought. The beach stuff is cute too just keep luggage constraints in mind. If they’re flying spirit or a similar budget airline, it might be a pain in the butt for them to haul all that back home.

    The gifts you have in mind don’t seem very gift-like to me, they seem more prop-related.  

    The massage is nice, but I’d ditch the random personalized wine glass.  And the robe definitely feels like a prop and not a gift.  (I’ve thrown out so many random photo-opp robes, none of which have ever fit me properly!)

    As far as the hotel suite, it’s nice, but like another bee, I see that as more of an obligation/courtesy to your wedding party.  

    I always recommend shopping like you would if it was their birthday.  And be mindful of the fact that whatever you give them will take up room in their suitcases on the way home.

    You can definitely get a massage without a robe lol. And idk how the bridesmaid who is flying in would easily be able to take the wine glass home?

    I’m probably not in the majority here, but if it was required my hair/makeup be professionally done, I think I’d want that as a gift. Just a thought 🙂

    Get each woman a personal (not personalized) gift, something you might give her for her birthday, something that has no connection to your wedding or any event surrounding your wedding. Not jewelry to wear to the wedding; not a pre-wedding massage; not a robe to wear to the massage–though you can give all those things and that would be nice. But give each of them a specific-to-her, personal gift–each gift different from all the others–that has no connection whatever to your wedding.

    You actually have alot to work with! Your sister might appreciate a gift card to a scrub store, a beautiful charm that represents her being a nurse, a new shiny stethoscope, etc

    You said 1 bridesmaids is activite, do yoga class or paint night like someone had suggested. You could even do it with her! I actually love those paint nights.

    1 bridesmaid is your wine-o friend, you could get her some mini wine bottles and a cheese/sampler box. You could pay for her to do a winery tour where they drive you around as you drink.

    2 are teachers, who may appreciate gift cards to a place like Michael’s. All the teachers I’ve ever known had to buy most their ‘fun’ supplies to do with their students.

    Honestly though the mothers AND the teachers would appreciate a massage, but I’d forgo the robes. I’ve never had an issue with needing a robe getting a massage. Idk your budget for each girl, but imo a massage and something small that tailors to their personality would be nice.

    Actually picking out them each a book to read that they would each personally would like is very sweet. A newish friend of mine was my secret santa and we both love hocus pocus so she bought that for me and said now we have a book to discuss as we read it:) it was very sweet.
