I had a similar situation.  My maid of honor was going through some things and was kind of MIA.  One of my other bridesmaids went above and beyond and I was really grateful.  I bought her a bracelet and gave it to her separately a couple of days before the wedding.  That way I had the opportunity to tell her how much I appreciated her and all she had done.  I did it privately because I didn’t want to hurt my maid of honor’s feelings.

Not sure how a personality can be masculine or feminine?

That aside, the leather card wallet sounds sweet to me.  Just remember that hair and makeup is not a “gift” to them — that’s you wanting them to look a certain way in photos.  It shouldn’t play into the equation.

Whatever you decide, I’d definitely do it separately from your other bridesmaids/MOH as previous poster said. 

Here’s a few ideas: 
– bottle of wine
– treat her to lunch/dinner as a thank you for stepping up 
– go to a concert together?
– attend a paint night together (where you paint/drink wine)
– bracelet/earrings 
– personalized thank you note +gift card for her favourite store/restaurant/hobby

I had a very similar situation. My wedding is coming up soon and I took my friend out for a mani/pedi and dinner for her bday as an extra thank you (we usually do very small gifts, if we do gifts at all).  I told her I wanted to treat her to a day of relaxing because I know she’s gone above and beyond for my big day when she didn’t need to 🙂 She really appreciated it and it was a nice way to honor her without being flashy infront of everyone else in the bridal party.

I made my Maid/Matron of Honor a scrapbook of pictures of us through the years because I know she loves having pictures in an album or scrapbook. 

I also got her and I tickets for Taylor swift in august as an extra thank you (after the wedding and I didn’t give that to her in front of anyone)

I did give it to her with everyone else around but this is a different situation. Is there anything a little more personal you can think of?
