i have this same problem. My sister is a lesbian, and is putting on a dress for the first time in 8 years just for my wedding!!! I have no idea what to get her.  I hope we get some good ideas 🙂

Something for her dorm room or that she can use in college?  A mini-fridge or microwave?  An mp3 player?

I’m a massive tomboy, and gifts people give me fall into one of three categories 1) sports tickets (though occasionally play tickets, since I like theater a lot), 2) liquor and 3) useful things (small appliances, etc).

Tomboy weighing in here: I totally second the sport tickets, shooting lessons, or custom sneakers.

I would also suggest something music related like a custom guitar strap (I play guitar), or something sport related (my tomboy Bridesmaid or Best Man friend is a big cyclist) like a necklace with a bike on it or a bike tire belt (on Etsy).

I’m not sure how much you want to spend, but maybe a nice leather bag that she could use for years to come.  It doesn’t have to be girly like a purse (I’m thinking distressed leather messenger bag/motorcycle style bag) but it could be something she’d appreciate and get a lot of use out of.  Good leather bags are hard to come by when you’re on a college student budget and I think most anyone would appreciate that, especially if it’s a style to her liking.

I know a common Bridesmaid or Best Man gift is a tote. I know you said the other BMs are getting necklaces, not sure if you’ve considered totes, (maybe the other brides can use this advice) but it would be a cute idea to have totes for the BMs and an athletic bag or draw string bag for her. Fill it with sporting equipment, tickets, hair bands/sweat bands, arm band for the ipod, ect… it’d maybe put her on the spot but if she has a good sense of humor she’ll love it!
