ideas for unique/useful bridesmaid gifts?

What is everyone giving their bridesmaids, besides jewelry or purses? I want to give them something useful that they will love.

kenneth cole shoes for 1/3 the price....

just kidding! I'm easy, I love dark chocolate! =) Or Trader Joes or Target gift cards...well, maybe that's just me. I know not everyone likes gift cards, but when it's for those stores I frequent, it's definitely useful. Or alcohol (oh no, just kidding, you can't give that to karen!). Or...I don't know. I don't think I should be answering this question, it's too weighted for me, haha.

I gave mine jewelry, so they would match during the ceremony. Then I gave them little things like a notepad, bath salts, shot glass, and a small bottle (mini fridge size) of rum.

Maybe a personalized toiletry bag with some travel size bath products.  Something with a great scent from Bath and Body Works is what I am thinking about.  Especially if your bridesmaids will be traveling and staying in a hotel.  Or maybe some different high energy snacks and bottled water to snack on.

I posted this thread earlier about what I'm getting my BM's.  I'm getting them accessories for the wedding day (shoes, jewelry, wristlets, charms), but hopefully stuff they'll be able to reuse too. I'm also having all of it custom made so it'll be unique and different!

I've been posting this a lot but I'm getting my girls beach bags, flip flops, a beach towel, gift set from sephora, and vera bradley makeup bags. I got my junior bm a vera bradley purse, vera bradley glasses case, and I'm going to fill the bag up with lipgloss, nail polish, etc.

I'm going to make my girls monogramed tote bags and fill them with all kinds of goodies. These girls have been my family, so I really want to show them how much I appreciate their friendship. I'm going to do one special gift for each of them that symbolizes the girl and our friendship. Then I'll put in a bottle of wine, wedding day jewelry in a monogrammed jewelry roll, wine glasses, a framed photo album, maybe some nice toiletries, some chocolate, a CD, and some other knick nacks.

I like the idea of giving giftcards, or going as a group and getting manicures and pedicures. If you want something more tangible chocolates, a calendar, or a blanket.

Their dresses, hair and make up, jewelry for the day of, Strap Perfect bra clips, clutches, and pashmina.  Clinique Happy for my MOH's since the planned two seperate Bachelorette parties for me.  Coincidently, it's both their fave scents.

We gave our MOH and our "dude of honor" the same thing:  Swiss Army knives.  They both loved them, but you know your BMs, and whether that would interest or appall them.


We gave our MOH photo 1530192-1

I got mine the jewelry I wanted them to wear, ordered it from an Etsy Seller.  I also made a day of survival kit for them: insoles made for strappy heels, bobby pins, safety pins, band aids, tylenol, alka setlzer, a small bottle of water, a granola bar, some other things I can't remember right now.  I put it all into tote bags which I monogrammed for them using rhinestones.  If I can find a pic I will post one.  They came out cute and were a real hit with the BM's.
