My Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts were *worth* about $35-$40 a peice but I found a lot of deals (bath and body works stuff) so I only spent about $15-$20 a peice. I think it really depends on your budget. My entire wedding budget was about $6,000 – $7,000 so to spend say $100-$200 on a gift was out of the question.

I would love it if someone gave me a Coach wristlet as a gift!

That is a really nice gift and it all depends on what you can afford and personal taste.

I got my girls a personalized hanger for their dresses (and pictures), got them Bridesmaids shirts (that’s how I ask them to be my BM), and I’m getting them earrings (that they could use at the wedding if they want or not)

@Shell29:  I spent about 30 on each of my girls, plus made them handmade thank you cards, and paid for them to get their hair done. 30-50 dollars seems the norm where I’m from.

Oh by the way, it’s a virus cos it’s an .exe file. This user has been bombing the boards with it and has been flagged. Just don’t open it.

I think that you have done a lot for your girls, love the wristlet’s. I don’t think that it’s too much considering, like you said, it is a Destination Wedding. If I were Goldilocks I would say that it was just right.

@Shell29:  it’s a .exe file that will want you to download it to your computer; websites do NOT end with .exe

Love the wristlet idea! I’m sure the your girls will love them! I am spending about $40-$50 on each of my four BMs. I got them each a bracelet and stud earrings to wear on the wedding day. I got a good deal on those so I hope to also get them $25 gift certificates towards their hair for the wedding, and some goodies from Bath & Body Works

Sounds good to me, but your math isn’t adding up for me – $50 for a wristlet, PLUS a pandora charm, plus flip flops for $55?  I thought the Pandora charms were like $25-75?

But anyway, that sounds like a very nice gift and I’m sure your girls will be happy!
