I have to say I ended up (so far, knock on wood!) with very nice and easy-to-work with BMs. I know being a Bridesmaid or Best Man requires a lot money and time, so I really want to show them in continious small ways that I appreciate all they are doing!
My mom is going to gift them their wedding hair and jewelry, and I am going to give them a gift (to be decided on still).
How did you show them you appreciated them? What were your gifts like?
Thank you for your help!

@HeLovesDogs: I think a key thing to showing your girls you appreciate them is to personalize their gifts. I made my girls a necklace when I asked them to be BMs, and I’m gifting them a matching pair of earrings at the wedding. I sewed macaron coin purses to hold the earrings, and I’m putting those inside Coach wristlets (we all love Coach) I’m giving them, along with a little emergency kit, and gift cards to their favorite stores. Here’s a pic of the coin purses:

I bought mine coach bags that fit their style (colour, size, shape), and am filling it with all sorts of girly things. Shampoo/conditioner (specific to their hair), Moroccan oil, cute tweezers, nail file w/ their horoscope, wipes (polish remover, make-up remover, etc), Swarovski crystal bracelet, nail polish, their signature perfume, favorite candies, bottle of water, flip flops, hairspray, dry shampoo, gum… and a few other little things.
I too, wanted to give them something they can use all the time, as it means so much to me that they are willing to sacrifice their time and money to stand by me on my wedding day.
