We got my girls clutches and filled them with pretty rhinestoned compacts, lipgloss, tic tacs, hand sanitizer, bobby pins etc. We also got them their jewelry for the wedding and some flip flops for the reception. 

As for the groomsman we got them custom flasks, and will get them mini bottles of alcohol for them. and im not sure what else to get the guys.. they are hard to shop for and Fiance is not helpful he just wanted to make sure they got flasks.. wellthey did but they need a little something more lol

Parents – Photo keepsake box (wooden box with photo frames on it) + personalized hankies 🙂

BMs – cosmetic bags filled with goodies like lotion, lip gloss, hand sanitizer, AND a necklace

Groomsmen – customized drinking glasses (tandem bike prints, that’s our theme), beer or Jones soda (if under age, and we have a few), a goofy t-shirt wrapped up & put inside their drinking glass

I also got gifts for my guest book attendants, ring bearers, flower girls, ushers, grandparents (just personalized hankies for them, but still they’re important & I felt like I should get them something) and readers.  I bought most of my stuff just today and holy cow, I’m totally broke now! Oh well, it’ll be worth it!  😀  Good luck!

I am leaning towards:

Bridesmaids and Hostesses- Wine Glasses etched with their names and a bottle of wine (found the glass etching kit at Hobby Lobby and large durable wine glasses at the dollar tree).  I am also giving them flip flops for the reception.

Groomsmen- Beer Mugs etched with their names and six pack.  What else would a guy want? LOL

Flower Girls and Ring Bearer–gift baskets with coloring books, candy, candy apples and little toys.

Ushers and Junior Bridesmaid (all 13 yrs and younger)- Little thank you trinkets like mini bottles of perfume/cologne, gift cards for Mcdonalds, Dairy Queen, Zaxby’s….

Parents-Wow….I didn’t think about them….good thing I read this thread.  I guess we are going to get them framed photo with our engagement pic and wedding pic and another space for our future family pic….

I am thinking about writing my Dad a letter and giving it to him after I am married just to let him know how much I love him (my Mom passed away in 2006 so I won’t be able to do the same for her). Its going to be a loooooooonnnnnggg letter though! LOL

I’m thinking of doing gift bags for the BM’s that include emergency kits (mints, lip gloss, etc) but I’m also buying their jewelry since one of the Bridesmaid or Best Man sells Tracy Lynn jewelry and getting their hair and makeup done.
