    @Ohiogal1201:  When I was 10, I was a junior bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding.  She gave me a necklace with a small clear jewel of some sort (I will be honest, I was 10, and have no clue what it is still) in the shape of a heart.  It is at biggest dime sized (probably smaller) I have moved it to a longer chain as I’m 27 and quite a bit bigger than I was at 10, and still wear it occassionaly, as it is small and classic.  I actually wear it to weddings a lot.  I could probably still find something similar if I went looking.

    My absolute favorite that I’m wearing now is a purple/blue/indigo center stone depending on what I’m wearing it with with a small cirlce of chips around it on a silver chain.  This is similar, as I don’t know where she got it form, but the stone is round.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/130919493/cobalt-blue-necklace-bridesmaid-necklace?ref=favs_view_23

    @Ohiogal1201:  I am doing a combo of same and different gifts. Each girl is getting a beach bag, but they will all be different patterns. I also plan on getting each one a zip-up hoodie to wear while getting ready, but they will all be different styles/colors/brands to match each girl. My girly girl friend will love a PINK hoodie, while my less girly friend would like something loose and nuetral. They are similar gifts, but will be tailored to each girl.

    I have been thinking to give a Thomas Sabo charm for each of my bridemaid. It won’t be the charm though. I will pick one accordingly to their personal style.

    @Ohiogal1201:  I got them during one of the 75% of surprise sales so they were only  about $25 each. They’re similar to this one

    Since I don’t wear a lot of jewelry, I would prefer a unique gift.

    @Ohiogal1201:  I think it depends… on a lot of different factors.

     

    I was in a wedding with eight other BMs, and bride and groom pretty much paid for the entire wedding herself. All of us girls got the same gifts – but they were super nice. She clearly took the time and effort to think about us. BUT she also made sure she got the best deals, to keep the price down.

     

    She got us: Hoodies; sneakers; a Coach wrislet (from the coach outlet) and silver jewelry (etsy).Hands down, best Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts I have received.

     

    As a repeat Bridesmaid or Best Man, I have gotten a lot of… interesting gifts. I think part of the issue is what the bride might think is so cute and awesome, isn’t always what the gift recipient thinks.I think the key is to think about what THEY would like… if it’s all the same thing, then fine. If it’s not, then that’s also fine.

    Also, please keep in mind, if it’s for YOUR wedding, ie: jewelry to wear for the wedding, it’s not a gift. It’s something for your wedding.
