I gave my girls movie night baskets which I thought were pretty original. The baskets included the Bridesmaids DVD (it came out on DVD a few days before our wedding so the timing worked out perfectly), a comfy throw blanket that matched their living rooms, PJ pants, gourmet popcorn in flavors that they’d each like and a bottle of wine from the winery where where we did a tasting for my bachelorette party. Everything was packaged in fabric lined baskets that they could each use in their homes after the fact.

“There’s nothing new under the sun.” I got them all adorbs large clutches/small purses, their jewelry, little soaps from LUSH, flip flops, and I’m going to fill their purses with girl essentials since they’re all Out of Town from the wedding.  I’m thinking lip gloss, nail files, a compact, etc.

If you’re going with original, be sure to keep in mind if the girls have to travel that they can’t bring liquids on airplanes, breakables, etc.  Also, keep function in mind.  Things that say “BRIDESMAID!” on them probably will go into the gym clothes drawer after your wedding.  Also in terms of function, keep each girl’s living situation in mind- don’t give apartment living BMs a tree sapling lol. 

Sorry I couldn’t give you any actual ideas.  Perhaps put yourselves in their shoes- what would you just love to get as a bridesmaid?

We got married on Cinco de Mayo and we decorated my BIL/SIL’s (our MOH/BM) hotel room with a pinata and decorations from the party supply store. Then we stocked their mini-fridge with their favorite alcholoic beverages and snacks. I also made a bag for my SIL with funky sunglasses, a hat, tall socks, and some other small silly things to use throughout the weekend. (This was in addition to nice jewelry, which is pretty unoriginal, but whatever.)

I got them each a 31 brand bag and put things for the hobbies they enjoy.  One likes to knit, so yarn and a knitting project, one likes to make soap, so things for that, and one likes to bake…

I got each of my Bridesmaid or Best Man a bottle of wine (each a different one for their individual tastes), a girft card to one of their favorite stores and a small clutch (once again all different).  As well I purchased their jewellery to go with their dresses and my mom is paying for mani/pedi and their hair for the day of the wedding. Ohh….and I put it all in photo storage boxes, something that they would use again after the wedding.
