I gave my bridesmaids each a pearl pendant and earring set, a grey hooded cardigan (it was chilly that night so they really appreciated those), silver glitter flip flops, and a bunch of kind of joke “as seen on tv” stuff (a bump it, turbie twist, purse mate, bra strap thingy, etc). They all loved it (at least that’s what they said).

I’m surprising them the Thursday before the Wedding with a girls trip in Napa. They think we are having a final fitting but i’m shoving them in a limo with a prepacked bag of Lush goodies, heading to a few wineries then relaxing back down with a spa day in calistoga. I’ve always been more of an event/action person than a gift person.

@truefrommetoyou: I got them from Amazon. I loved how big they were, and super soft.

I’m spoiling my five girls BIG Time. I’ve got them a custom wooden coat hanger from etsy with their names shaped out of the wire (to be used to hang their dress the mornin gof the wedding). A luxury hotel dressing gown, a pair of studded earings, pre wedding treatments at a spa (facial, massage and gel nails) and of course a lovely card with my notes of thanks for evrything they have done for me.
They were all given a box of chocolates and a purse to match their shoes as a gift from hosting my bridal shower.
I know the girls won’t be seeing all of this coming since I’ve paid for their shoes and dress alterations and will be paying for their hair and makeup as well.
They deserve everything and I can’t wait to give their gifts to them. 🙂

@MsSFcpa: Oh wow that sounds like such a wonderful idea.

Coach wallet wristlet, monogrammed bracelet, earrings, sole mates, and a hand written note thanking them for being my bridesmaids. They were about 50$ each but I figured it was stuff the girls would use again.

First I sent my bridesmaid a questioner so I can make sure they all get stuff they love! I bought my dress at davids bridal so I also recieved 20% off of gifts. They have a tote on sale for 14.99 its even personalized for free! Its only avaliable in brown and turquoise (my colors are olive green, creme and brown) you can get the names in almost any color I choice a olive green so it coordinates with my wedding!
Than on etsy I found this really cute site that sells personlized mirrors there is sooo many styles and you can get them with your Bridesmaid or Best Man name or quotes and they are reasonable!!
I also found their jewlery for the wedding on etsy in my colors….they have soo many and they sell them in packs as well as individually!! And she will wrap them together in a cute box!
Im not finished yet. I want some flip flops added, a wedding day survival kit, their favorite candy and thinking some bath and body works as well!!! Hope this helps!!

Wow, I went out of town and just got on my computer for the first time in days and look at all these great gifts!! Love it!
@BothCoasts: “it’s feminine and it’s something they can use” – BAHAHAHAHA this cracked me up!! Thanks for that. Seriously….awesome.
Ummm can I be your bridesmaid? I kid. But seriously.
Loving all the suggestions to do a personal note. That’s a great idea and I’m definitely going to do it. I’m thinking that personal and sentimental is the way to go with these things.

Lots of great ideas! I love the boxes above and am actually supposed to be looking for those myself now. 😉
I agree with PP that a personalized note is the most most important. You are celebrating your friendship and why that person is special to you.
All my girls I made personalized black Ikea hangers and bought them Sole Mates since we will be walking in grass.
For my bridesmaids:
- Marc Jacobs cosmetic case
- Body Shop Body Butter
- CO Bigelow Mentha Supreme 2x Lip Gloss
- Stationary Set
For my MOHs:
- Marc Jacobs purse
- Etsy bracelet(not for wedding)
I feel like its enough, i.e. I spent enough money, but I feel like I need a clincher piece. Was debating making a jewelry roll for them all but don’t think it ties in to the gift. We’ll see…
