Bridesmaid Gifts for the 100th time..

I know this topic has come and gone over and over again but I am bringing it up again....


With 3 months until the wedding I am in search for bridesmaid, groomsmen (helping the FI) and jr. bm and gm gifts! I want to give them something memorable but something that they can use and enjoy. I am not a fan of typical things, so like unique gifts... I am looking to spend less than 100 per person, any ideas????


 


What are you girls all doing?! This probably shouldn't be stressing me out as much as it is lol.

Our gifts are unique to us, but typicall! For my girls I got them Vera Bradley clutches that I'm gonna fill with their jewlery. For the guys my FI is big into baseball and has played forever so hes giving the guys personalized wooden bats with the wedding date on them.


Some other unique ideas I ran across were to have the BM come in a day early and got to the spa all day the day before the wedding...the bride paid for a service of their choice (facial, nails...)

I bought all of my bridesmaids totes from Micheals that I am going to paint their names, titles, date of the wedding, pumpkins & leaves (our theme). Inside of the totes I am going to put the jewelery that I bought them for the day of the wedding, a pumpkin scented candle from Beanpod Candles, manicure set, a couple bottles of water and some snacks.  Maybe something else but not quite sure what.

I got my BM's slippers, a robe, earrings and a necklace (to wear the day of the wedding), and a bunch of different makeup (lipglosses, eyeshadows, makeup brushes) from elf.com.  Im going to put it all in a big gift basket.  As for the guys, we are getting them monogramed beer mugs from thingsremembered.com, and filling their gift bags with goodies, and a bottle of their favorite liquor.

I too wanted to do something unique and that I thought people would use or have for years to come. We have not "officially" decided, but I think we are going to do the letteryourlegacy.com thing. We have had posts about this before if you want to see or go to their website (I would post a pic, but I'm not very good at it). We ordered one for ourselves this weekend to see what it looks like and how the quality is, etc. and then we will make our final decision.


I'm also putting together mini tote bags with a few items in it like water, snacks, candle, lotion and what ever inexpensive items I come across over the next few months.

I know Kohler44 ordered one as well.  Hers might have come in already since she ordered it before.  You might want to page her and see.

Yes I think it was Kohler (maybe Wilcox too?) One of them said they really liked it. I'll let you know how mine turns out when I get it.


As for the totes I got a little straw one at Target for $2.50 over the weekend. Very affordable and accomplishes the goal. Things can add up VERY quickly even at 10 or 15 dollars a bag.
