I would love to receive that!  It’s a great gift, and I don’t see why a girl wouldn’t love it!


You should check out giftcardrescue.com for them though.  They sell REAL gift cards at % off!  We bought one for Applebees for V-Day.  Paid $22, got a gift card for $25!

I think it is a nice idea.  I originally had toyed with getting my BM’s some giftcards for their favorite coffee shops.

I like that idea.  Who doesn’t like going out to eat?  I like that the gift is useable.  I also like the PP’s idea of a gift certificate to a local coffee shop.

First of all, anything you get them is very nice.  Getting them something worth $50 is even nicer.  With that being said, however, I wouldn’t suggest a giftcard.  Your wedding is such a special day, why not give them something they can remember your wedding forever by?  A token they can treasure and say in 10 years “(Your Name) got this for me when I was a bridesmaid in her wedding.  I just love her!”  A giftcard is disposable and notoriously impersonal.  I would consider getting them a nice piece of jewelry, an engraved makeup compact or keepsake box, or something else more personal.  As a bridesmaid, I would prefer something meaningful over something convenient 🙂

I think a gift card is a great idea.  You’re basically treating your girls to a night out, which is something I personally love but can’t always afford for myself.  I understand MrsTrigger’s point about something personal, but I have a lot of trinkets around that are gathering dust, so I’d rather have something useful.  That said, if you want to get them something personal, how about a $40 gift certificate and a $10 picture frame or other nice item?  That way, they get to have a night out, on you, and something around the house to look back at.
