    I love the charm idea. Especially if it’s real gold (but i don’t wear lots of fake jewelry and I LOVE lockets and antique style pieces i’ve inherited). That’s just something eveyr girl loves I think! And looks great but unique at the wedding. Especially if they’re personalized. Makeup and beauty products is not something I want someone else getting for me. I’m too picky about what i put on my face.

    1 or 2. I wouldn’t get much use out of a clutch beyond the wedding day. And I like nonwedding related Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts. 1 or 2 are more personalized to the girl.

    I like the first one because I love makeup and that one seems the easiest to customize to each girl.

    Out of those choices, I would go with #1. But instead of picking your favorite makeup, pick something they will like.

    I’m picky with what I wear, so unless the person knew my taste, getting a charm would be nice but I’d never wear it.  And I’m not a purse person so a clutch isn’t my thing.  But a handy bag with some things I like or can use is great.  I’m all about practical.

    I plan to get my Maid/Matron of Honor and me matching bags, which we can use for our clothes and other accessories the day of. 

    But you know your bridesmaids better than we do, so if they’d like any of the other gifts more, then you should go that route.  GL.

    I like the personalized idea of the make-up bag!! I already got these diamond key necklaces on sale during v-day but I wish I had thought of this!!

    Your first idea is great! I’m getting my girls monogrammed tote bags w/ monogrammed mugs but don’t know what else to fill them with – I might steal some of your ideas…they’re too great not to!

    I love the make up bag idea, but I agree with others about the make-up issue. I vote for a gift certificate to ULTA or Sephora, etc, instead of actually filling it with makeup. Unless you know the girls really well, and know what kind of makeup they like to use. What a cute idea, though!

    Of the three gifts you listed, I like 2 or 3 the best. I don’t wear much makeup at all so I wouldn’t have much use for the make-up bag but I love cute clutches and jewelry. But you know your girls best, so pick whatever you think they would appreciate the most.
