I’m not really having Bridesmaids, only a Maid/Matron of Honor — But I’m having 6 girls helping me out with my bridal shower and I need to get them a gift. Honestly, I have no clue what to get them. I really like this necklace from Peoples Jewellers.
I’m just wondering if anyone has any suggestions? (even stores from etsy!) Since these girls aren’t my BM’s I’m kind of lost as to what to get them.
Extra Info – I’m not having BM’s because I’m having a Destination Wedding, all these girls but 2 of them are FI’s first cousin’s and my Future Mother-In-Law would like them included in the shower, so they are helping to plan games and etc. for the party & are going to help the day of the shower.

Hey! I had a lot of helpers at my wedding too, since my BMs were all my younger sisters, pre-teens and teenagers…soooo I needed a lot of other people to actually do stuff. Hah!
My gifts varied from person to person. I didn’t get them all the same thing. I spent about $20 on each of them. I know that’s not a ton but our total wedding budget was $4800 so it was reasonable for us. I wrote each of them a letter thanking them for all they did, and then gave them person-specific gifts.
For example, I gave one friend a gift card to her favorite local food co-op, where she can’t afford to buy all her groceries but would really love to.
I gave another friend a set of lotions and stuff from Bath and Body Works with a scent that she loves a lot.
I gave another helper a cute necklace in a keepsake box, and gave another person a pretty scarf because she loves scarves.
I think the most important thing is making sure it’s something each helper will actually like. 🙂

@Stephville: I like the idea of getting each of them a slightly different necklace – like get the elephant one for the helper that loves elephants, etc.
