Thank you for the advice!  I'm having some difficulty thinking of something original, yet personal to give, but this gave me some great ideas!

I have found bridesmaid bags at AC Moore, that say just that "bridesmaid". They also have a bag that says "Maid of Honor". They also have these same bags I am talking about on www.orientaltrading.com, "cheaper" and you can have them personalized when ordering from there. I am going to have them Monogrammed with their first initials, and make it personal, just for them. I am getting those and then filling them with Bath and Body lotions in "fall" scents, plus some fuzzy slippers (with grippers on the bottom, so they dont slip on the dance floor) for them to change into for the reception. Because you cant dance if your feet hurt! :) I am going to put a couple of other goodies in there for each of them that remind me of them, personally. My sister is getting married 3 months after me, and she keeps asking me what to give her bridesmaids. I told her what I am doing for mine. She likes the fuzzy slipper idea as well as the Bath and Body lotion sets.

For my bridesmaids I am getting them each a personized bag with their first initial. I got a really great price from Dianne's bags on ebay. I am filling the bag with a jewelry box (bracelet and earrings), a hair accessory, and a small basket with bath and body works products.

Another fantastic way to package the gifts is in hat boxes.  I got my girls black and white damask hat boxes from my local craft store and used gift tissue in their favorite color as an added personalized touch, (and they were only $5).  They are turning out beautiful!

I feel that these gifts are standard gift ideas, and although they are nice, if your friends have been in mulitiple weddings, these gifts start to get a little redundent.   I have found that the gift that really gets used the most, are accessories.  If you buy your BM the jewelry for the big day, it is something they can use over and over again.  Any time they get a compliment on them, they wil be reminded of your special day.

For their gift I'm buying flip flops then bedazzling them to add a special touch. I'm also buying their accessories for the wedding :-)

The best bridesmaid gift I got was when I was in my sister's wedding. She gave us all a pair of Tom's Shoes. We are wore them during the reception and I wear mine all the time.

I thought of getting my girls a silky robe that they can wear while we're all getting ready together on the BIG day.  Its something they can definitely use again, and it will also look nice in the "getting ready" pictures

Ok, I need some help.  I got unique gifts for each bridesmaid. I have 4 and a MOH.  I got a tiffany necklace for one, nike id shoes that i designed with her fave colors for another, foot spa with all the extras for another, and a 1/4 carat diamond locket w/ a pic of her mother (who just recently passed away) in it.  When do I give these gifts to them?  While we are getting ready before the wedding?  Before the rehearsal dinner or do I do a bmaid dinner/lunch separate and give it to them then? HELP!

I"m haveing jewlery custom made for all my girls and I bought them all a saphire and diamond necklace that I found at kay jewlers that they were promoting. Even though they can't wear it on the day of the wedding because it doesnt go with the theme of my wedding or colors it's an $80 value necklace that they can wear anywhere anytime. I'm also looking at bridal bags but I can't find one that is affordable because they want to charge you so much to put something on it.
