I’m paying for the girls make up to be done and taking them for mani/pedi’s two days before.
Fiance got all the guys a more expensive bottle of alcohol.
We wanted to avoid things that could get lost in a closet or drawer and get thrown out one day.

We’re not sure about the groomsmen’s gifts yet (and we still have time!) but my Fiance is thinking about getting them each a set of fun cufflinks.
I’m getting my girls each a pair of Toms, and probably inexpensive but nice sunglasses and earrings.

I got each of my girls a pashima, a $30 gift card to Charming Charlies so they can treat themselves to some cute jewlery and a bottle of tasty wine.
My Fiance got his guys an order of 6 bacon wrapped filets from Omaha Steaks which will be delivered to thier homes the day before our wedding.

I’m not sure on the bridesmaids’ gifts. I’m thinking jewelry for the day of, either a wristlet or a pashmina, and something non-weddingish.
For the groomsman we got geeky-themed cufflinks based on their interests. They’ll also be getting their ties for the day of and probably some alcohol.

Spa Morning for the girls – 30 minute massage, mani, and pedi – followed by breakfast, and a framed picture.
For the boys – a big bottle of Hendricks Gin and fancy tonic water with a flask.

I am still trying to finish up shopping for my girls. I am on the look out for some cotton hoodies that I can iron on Bridesmaid, and then I’ve gotten them converse and wedding day jewelry. I’m also planning on making them a little day of kit.
For the guys, we bought them cufflinks and converse. We are also doing a groomsmen survival kit for them too!

I’m gonna get the girls pashminas and some jeweled hairpins for the wedding. The men will probably be receiving alcohol or flasks. I haven’t decided on the flowergirl yet. She’s old enough that I want to give her something too. Maybe jewelry.

I’m getting them jewelry- not the same piece for each of them, but individually chosen.
I am not having bridesmaids in my wedding, but I am going to gift my closest girlfriends who have been huge support systems during this whole process.

I got my girls BCBG flip flops for the reception, custom made swarovski earrings from http://www.etsy.com/shop/MaryMorrisJewelry, custom wine glasses from http://www.etsy.com/shop/scrapsoflovebyjen, a bottle of prosecco and I’m paying for day of makeup and the night before hotel.
The boys so far are getting fuchsia suspenders and black bowties…I’m sure Fiance will think of something fun/alcoholic for each of them as well

I got amazing jewellery made for them (see below), red pashminas and personalized hangers.

For the girls I am getting a piece of jewelry featuring their birthstone. To save money I am on the lookout at stores like Buffalo Exchange and it’s going great so far! Then I’m adding handmade soap in the shape and color of their birthstone, thanks to an awesome etsy seller. My girls aren’t obsessed with birthstones – this is just an idea I came up with, hope it’s not too weird :/
And for the guys we’re thinking quirky cufflinks that have to do with something they love. Probably going to rely heavily on etsy for this one too…

The girls got:
The guys got:

$100 towards their plane ticket

I did survival kits for mine and bought them the earrings for the wedding. I work for a wine importer so they will all get a bottle of wine as well.
The guys are getting Camoflauge Bubba Kegs & brandy, beer can ammo belts and beer.

@GeekChic: We’re also doing geeky cufflinks for the guys, personalized to each guy.
I’m still trying to figure out gifts for the ladies. Some ideas that are being kicked around are:
-cookie jar filled w/homemade cookies (will be sent after the wedding). Each jar personalized to each woman’s taste/preference.
-tea pot/set w/style and color personalized to each lady.
-sweatshirt for upcoming cold weather designed by bride.

I definitely like the sweatshirt idea. Something practical that they’ll be able to use for long after the wedding. Especially if they live in a cold climate!
We each had three attendants and one my attendants was male so we bought them individualized gifts. A few of them were pilots so Darling Husband got them something aviation related.
