So far, I bought one girl tickets to see Amaluna, a Cirque du Soleil production. Still looking for the other girls gifts.  But each will be reflective of the girl 🙂

I’m doing something similar to you- I am paying for our house rental the night before the wedding, serving brunch/mimosas the morning of, paying for pedis, and buying robes. That’s my plan, at least lol. I keep thinking of things I want to add, like a bottle of wine, etc, but we’ll see what the budget is looking like 😛

@Mrs. Meowerson:  I am having the hardest time coming up with creative gifts, but I hate the typical Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts everyone gives. I really want to give them something personal that they will really love and use. What is your budget for gifts? Mine is about $75/person, and I have 8 bms. I wish I could spend more, but with the amount of girls, it just isn’t possible :/

I am paying for our room the night before as well, I got a huge suite at the hotel our reception will be at, I guess that can be considered part of their gift! I did also buy them all individual jewelry to wear with their dresses because I wanted them all to “match” but told them that wasn’t their gift, since the look I was going for is not something they would necessarily wear again. Other than that, I am stumped. I thought about haviana flip-flops in navy (to match their dress). maybe a Coach key-chain (a different one for each girl), a bottle of alcohol (whatever they like to drink) and a picture frame with a letter in it, and then I would provide them with a photo of us from the wedding. Does that sound lame? Not enough??

I guess I kind of feel bad that the room is part of their gift — I mean I guess it is, but I want to do more too LOL. Maybe I can look into new make-up bags (like for their purse) and a MAC lip gloss or something…

I am sewing silk robes for each of them to wear in their favorite color. We will have a great photo op of us all in our matching robes. I am also embroidering their first names on the pocket.

I’m so excited because I just ordered these robes at cost through my friend’s boutique, for $19 each! I really wanted to do robes for all the girls 🙂

I’ve also decided to do the following gifts for my girls : my Maid/Matron of Honor a gift certificate for either a mani/pedi or a massage, a pair of Haviana flip flops and a nice straw beach tote. Another bm will get a make-up kit from Sephora; another a Coach make-up bag and a MAC gift certificate; my sister a nice carry-on bag with a luggage tag and passport photo (she travels alot); another girl will get a mini perfume sampler set from Sephora; my FI’s sister I will get her cute pj/workout clothes from VS Pink (she’s young and loves that stuff …. and then I just have one more girl to figure out! Plus they’ll all get the robes and a nice frame with a thank-you letter to be replaced with a photo from the wedding. 

I think they’ll really love them!
