here are a few ideas…. not sure if your Maid/Matron of Honor would like them but….

1. a cute clutch for the wedding OR a handbag for day to day use

2.  Curling iron and hair products… who couldn’t use those… very practical

3.  magazine subscription – i know its not the best idea…

4.  Body care products – bubble bath, body cream, body polish…

5.  gift card (not the most personal)

6.  Bottle of wine with personalized glasses 

7.   yummy treats!  a gift basket of goodies 

 Just some ideas.. hope that helped 🙂

I did a scrapbook for my sister and she loved it. I wrote a note saying how much she meant to me and why I chose her as my maid of honor. I then left blank pages to add pictures of the wedding events. i gave it to her when I asked her to be my moh, but I think it could be nice when you are thanking your moh too.

Here are some pages I included:

it might be really cool to do a spa gift certificate of some sort with the suggestion that you guys go together. It’d be a good way to say "thanks for being there for me" and to let her know that just because you’re getting married doesn’t mean you won’t still be there for her smiley

How about a gift certificate to Sephora’s ?  A girl can go crazy in there!

Hmm, tough one. 

 – spa gift certificate, as missrain suggests, go together (I just did this for my best friend’s birthday)

– "wine of the month" club membership?  (I’m sure there are many, but I’m familiar with some wineries in Virginia that definitely do this)

– girls’ weekend getaway?  accomodations & dinner taken care of by you?

– iPod touch?

– something monogrammed, like from Pottery Barn? or personal stationary? 

– a nice watch?  (not sure if that’s considered jewelry)

– gift certificate for her salon?

If she’s a tote bag maniac, she will love a personalized one.  I have one from LL Bean and I am a moderate tote bag maniac 🙂  You could fill it with the curling iron and hair products?  Or other cute stuff – her favorite treats, a small photo book with pictures of the two of you (from Kodak’s Martha Stewart collection runs $10 for 14 pages).

Why don’t you try to be sneaky to get her answer? Tell her that you want to get someone else a really special gift to thank them (it could be mom, sister, future in-law, someone she knows means a lot and has been helpful). See what kind of suggestions your moh gives you and see if that helps you decide what she would really appreciate- worth a shot at least to do some digging, or just go shopping together and see what she comments on/acts excited about-
