Why not get them each a different gift customized for their own personalities and styles?  There’s no rule saying you need to get each of them the same thing.

@abbie017:  Agreed. I’m most like your first and third bridesmaids, so while I’d appreciate anything they liked, something that feels like you spent the time choosing it for ME would love lovely.

Bridesmaid or Best Man3 – I was going to suggest checking out for ren faires around you, but your wedding is earlier than most of them start in colder areas. I absolutely LOVE these (I own two of them, plus another of her figurines). I’m sure there’s lots of cool stuff on Etsy, too.

I third the idea of getting them different gifts (it’s what I’m doing for my BM’s too). For the second one, the one who owns a farm, look into The Heifer Project. You can donate an animal to a village in need – gaots for milk, etc.

@dragonlover:  That sounds like a great idea! That’s what I’m doing too. I set a budget of $100 per girl. I did get them each a tote bag ($25) with their initial, in their favorite color. Then inside the tote I put: a Michael Kors clutch for Bridesmaid or Best Man1, the new polaroid camera for Bridesmaid or Best Man2, Kate Spade Earrings for Bridesmaid or Best Man3, and some Baltimore Ravens and some college gear for Bridesmaid or Best Man4. I spent the same amount on each, but each gift is personalized to their tastes.
