A pair of flip flops that might match their BM dress would be cute.  That way they can change into comfy flops to dance the night away — and then keep afterwards, too.

I got them pashminas, plus a BM tank and some spa stuff to go in mine. I think I’m going to get them some of these too http://www.footzyrolls.com/ . They’re SO cool and a great alternative to flip-flops.

I bought totes with my Bm’s initials on them as well! 🙂 I’m throwing in: a navy blue pashima, yellow flip-flops, manicure and pedicure sets, and I’m trying to decide- sunglasses, beach towel, or something else. (I have a nautical themed wedding.) If you’ve not gotten them any yet, you could throw in nice jewelery, gift certificates for mani/pedi/spa/etc, fancy glassware and their favorite drink(s), etc.

Maybe some VS body splash or lotions there on a good deal now 3 for 24 or even better 5 for 30.

I put flipflops that I added jewels to to match their dresses (but yours already have floppies so nvmd…), personalized wine glasses I DIYd a while back (and now 2 of them are preggo HAHA), pashminas I got on clearance at Pier 1 for $2.48!!!!!, jewelry to go with their ‘day of’ dresses, and I’ll put some things in there like a bottle of their fav liquor (or sparkling cider for the preggos), a mani/pedi kit, stuff like that.  🙂

I got some lipgloss for my MOH at the big sale that’s going on at Bath and Body Works right now. I wanted to get her some lotion and other things too, but she’s flying in for the wedding and I doubt she’s checking her baggage (they still have that 3 oz liquid rule, right?). BBW could be a place you check out for some more small things that are really affordable right now.

A gift card to their fav coffee spot would be  great and then they can fill up the tumblers you are making them.  Have you seen those shmergency kits?  They contain all stuff you might “need” the day of your wedding.  You could make them something like that or just buy the kits:


I found these really pretty watercolor postcards of where our ceremony is located.  I got a few and I am planning on writting a note to my girls about how much they mean to me.
