For the Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts I think what I’m going to do is a little mani/pedi package thing. I’m thinking I’m going to get them a gift card to the aveda salon, a $10 mac or sephora gift card, and a hand lotion/foot scrub from B&BW: http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=3562915&cp=2484528′ defer=’defer
Would you like this as your Bridesmaid or Best Man gift?? If they don’t want a pedi which I know some people are weird about they could always use the gift card to go toward something else at the salon, right?
And the other thing… is it the rehearsal dinner when I’m supposed to give them their gifts? I ask because if I give them something like this, the Rehearsal Dinner which is just 2 days before the wedding might not be enough time for them to put it toward use for the wedding. Should I give it to them at the bachelorette party instead? But then would that be weird since some of the people at the bachelorette party are friends, but they aren’t in the bridal party? Etiquette check needed!

I think it sounds like a very nice gift. I would try out the some of the lotion before hand, I find some of their stuff to be a little greasy. I’m taking my girls out to brunch the day of the wedding before we get ready to give them their gifts. You could do that or have them all come over to your place a week or so before the wedding and make them dinner or something. Aveada will let you use gift cards on anything in the store, even if they write that the gift card is for something else, like a message. They have amazing tea there that you could get the girls who don’t like pedis.

What a thoughtful gift! I love the idea.
I’d give it to them at the rehearsal dinner. They could go the next day if they wanted to get something done for the wedding, or they could just save it for future use. Are they all from the same area?
