I wish I could be of some assitance but I have no idea what I would get the men.  I’m going to leave that to my SO.  I do know that for my bridal part I’m going to get them pear drop crystal earrings from Swarovski.  No worries, they aren’t as expensive as they sound.  Only 49.99/pair

I’m having trouble with gift shopping too but I will tell you what I’ve got so far…

Bridesmaids – red wine glasses with their names etched on them (they came out really pretty), I also plan on getting them each a pair of earrings, a fun magazine subscription, and probably some nice body stuff – like lotion, perfume, or whatever. And maybe a gift card to Victoria Secret if I have any cash left over…

Flower girls – heart-shaped silver boxes from Things Remembered with their names on them, might do a bracelet as well.

Groomsmen – I suggested that my guy get his guys nice leather travel bags (like, for their toiletries) with their names or initials on them. But really, I’m leaving that up to him.

Parents – I have no idea!!!!

This is what we’re doing… Maybe something will work for you!

GIRLS: I’m paying for their airbrush makeup (yes, I’m considering that a gift) , a makeup bag from Sephora, a bottle of body wash and lotion, personalized necklace via Etsy, flip flops, and candle

GUYS: tie and fun socks for the wedding, Lego button covers (they’re in regular shirts of their own so no cuff links like Fiance will have), and Ray Ban sun glasses (mega discounted at Macys at Christmas!)

PARENTS: each a gift certificate to their favorite hotel or spa – figured they deserve a little “me” time after all this instead of a picture frame or something… We’ll do some Shutterfly books for them for Christmas I think…

READERS: personalized necklaces and candle, maybe a little something else

For other men, I was just suggested a watch for my brother who is walking me down the aisle. You could do that for the other men in your life. Or Fiance received a nice bottle of whiskey as a gift for a wedding he was in! Liqour or cigars, perhaps? A nice poker set?

I love the bathrobe idea!! Robes are expensive! Your price sounds completely reasonable… I’d LOVE to have gotten that as one of my past Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts!

What about a nice bottle of champagne for your parents?

Consider the bottle of liqour for the groomsmen. It was a big hit! If they’re into that… At least our guys wouldn’t get a $50+ bottle of booze for themselves.

I am doing Little Miss Sunshine shirts for all of my girls, but they’re personalized for each girls’ personalities. Ex: Little Miss Italian Mafia, Little Miss Daredevil, etc. Then I also got them personalized necklaces, I’m making them a really cool handbag which are all personalized, then I’m adding some nail polish, lip gloss and homemade carmel popcorn in a jar!

For the guys we are doing personalized Fossil watches :]

I’m still figuring this out too, can’t wait to read all the ideas.  So far:

Girls:  Necklace and Earrings to wear day of, flip flops, recycled tote bag & BPA free water bottle.

Post Honeymoon gift (we are going to Jamaica) we are getting all the parents Jamacian cookbooks and a bottle of Jamacian rum.

MOTB:  Necklace, engraved bud vase, candle & she is also getting a tote bag.. she’ll have lots of things to carry, day of!

FOTB:  I’m thinking about getting him a personalized grilling set in a nice case… maybe a couple nice beer glasses…

That’s about all I have for now!

I did the spa robes (also from an Etsy seller) and I paid $31 for each of them.  I looked and looked and couldn’t find them any cheaper.  I think that the robe with a make up bag for $46 is a great deal.  Who are you using?  My seller was AMAZING!

For our guys, we did engraved cigar holders and a cigar.  They turned out great.  I think they were close to $20 apiece – after the engraving.

We got my FI’s grandfater and uncle (both are doing readings) embroidered handkercheifs from an etsy seller.  They were gorgeous and sooo inexpensive.  They had some great ones for ladies too.  If you want the seller’s info – please let me know.

Oh, one of my bridesmaids is getting married 5 months after me, and I just had her monogram done as her new monogram.  But, I asked her to see which way she wanted it done.

So far my top contenders are:

http://www.baronbob.com/missaknife.htm

It’s an all purpose “army knife” that does everything! It has:

  • Flashlight
  • Screwdriver
  • Keychain
  • Needle & Thread
  • Perfume Bottle
  • Mirror
  • Pill Box
  • Knife
  • Safety Pin
  • Pen
  • Tweezers
  • Bottle Opener

Also, this is the coolest flask I’ve ever seen: http://www.exclusivelyweddings.com/Weddings/Wedding-Party-Gifts/Groomsmen-Gifts/All-Groomsmen-Gifts/Stainless-Steel-Flask-and-Cigar-Holder

It has a built in cigar holder! My girls and I love to get cheap falvored (mango!) cigars for girls nights out, so this is perfect and unusual!

I’m also making necklaces to match their dresses, an inspiration pic is attached.

I got my girls each a robe from VS and it was around that price. I think they’ll get lots of use out of it as it’s pretty, but not so sheer that they can’t use it comfortably around the house.

The handkercheif was SheriAngellCreations on Etsy.  She was really quick and I love how they turned out.
