My best friend gifted us an hour long massage of our choice the morning of the wedding which was pretty amazing! I’m actually really excited about my gifts to my girls bc it was such a hard decision as each one of them are so different from each other! I was able to score some pretty amazing deals on Vera Bradley sunglasses at the Vera outlet for $20 each (originally $80 each) and they even came with hard cases! I’m also getting them reef sandals that semi match their dresses for the reception so they can be comfy and dance! Plus, I made them all personalized wire hangers with their names (I did this for about $3/each) and it was pretty easy. If your girls like to drink then I think the flask idea is cute, but my BMs rarely drink so that wouldn’t work for me =/ Good luck! πŸ™‚

This is what I gave my girls!!  They LOVED them, one even cried!  I also gave my mom and Mother-In-Law one that was happyness with a flower one it!There are a ton of different ones they are so much fun! They are made of silver by Kevin n Anna.  They are beautiful and hand made.  both my mom and Mother-In-Law have yet to take them off, and the wedding was 2 months ago πŸ™‚  Im going to have to get myself one now!!  The girls even decided to wear them during the wedding ceremony which means a lot!

The company was so great to work with!  and the pendants come in two different size, I went with the smaler size, they are elegant and perfect!!  The owners were really great to work with too

@arametta127:  I found them actually at the beach with one of my bridesmaids but didnt end up getting them till months later, took me forever to find out who made them.  Kevinnanna.com is the one who makes them, they are hand made and beautiful!!  The small one is about the size of a dime, maybe a bit bigger but its so elegant.  There is also a larger size which is about the size of a quarter, maybe a bit biger.  I ordered 6 of the smaller ones, 3 birdesmaids, the reader, my Mom and MIl (I really want one, just didnt order one for myself at the time πŸ™ )  She gave me a discount plus free shipping for ordering so many!!  I think it was $36 or $40 each, I cant quite remember, but they came very nicely put together in a nice box with a silver polishing cloth…. there are so many different meanings to chose from, definitly worth checking out.  Im so glad I got them this, they all love them and wear them all the time πŸ™‚

My favorite gift were Coach clutches gifted to us. The bride chose different colors for each of us (in the same style). It was nice because they were meant to be used for “regular life” rather than as a prop for the wedding! I love mine and I am going to do the same for my girls! πŸ™‚

@Future Mrs K:  oh my goodness those are awesome!!! They aren’t all totally legible though, did the necklaces come with a paper or something with the whole quote? just bookmarked that page though, it’s a serious contender for when it’s actually time to start buying Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts πŸ™‚

I got my girls coach clutches from the Coach Outlet (originally $148, bought for $37!); robes (there’s DIY tutorials on here), made them hangers with their names on them, hand made necklace, and belts for their dresses from JCrew.  Hoping they can use the stuff after the wedding too!

My favorite were also coach wristlets that I received for several weddings. They never get old!

So far I am getting my girls some personalized totes and a personalized bracelet and a hair piece for the wedding. We are having a fall wedding so the bracelet is more specific to that theme, but it is super cute and the seller on etsy was willing to work with me to personalize it for each of my girls. If you have not been on Etsy you have to check it out! They have everything you may want for your wedding and your bridal party and it is handmade and custom which I love.

I was also thinking of getting custom masquerade masks made for all of the bridal party because we are having a fall masquerade party, but that will depend on what the budget looks like closer to the event.

The one I use most is a nice thick bathroom – which I use for warmth in the house during the winter.  From the same bride, the most thoughtful was a 8×8 photobook that my friend made with lots of pictures of us and journey of our friendship up to the wedding.  For another, my friend gifted us our dress and clutch, which was nice, since I didnt have to buy them myself, but I’ve never worn it since.
