    I bought beautiful handmade handbags that look like a bouquet. If you are interested in this idea I will send you a picture of them.

        I did these "swag bags" to give to them before we leave

        The bags have
        a tank that says maid of honor or bridesmaid or flowergirl
        a tropical lotion
        a tropical lip gloss
        a luggage tag
        a manicure set
        a pair of earrings for every day wear (SS hoops with cz's)

        I am also giving them a SS starfish necklace at the rehearsal dinner along with their earrings for the wedding. I also paid for their dresses and shoes.

            I bought beach bags and filled them with a bunch of stuff, one of the things in the bags will be the tiffany knockoff starfish necklace i purchased on ebay, it was like $10 including shipping. I think less than that per necklace. And it's really cute. I personally love my Tiffany jewelry but i think my bms would appreciate the knockoff necklace just as much plus they get a whole bunch of other stuff they might like.

They are kinda cute and I though it would go with the theme.

              I was going to get my sisters the mini (I havent seen them in person, but I figured the mini might be cute. Who wants a huge starfish around their neck) I thought I would get my nieces the mini mini.

              Anyway...the mini's are $260 each = $520
              the mini mini's are $216 = $432

              so in total it's $952 + tax. (Holy ! Its the first time I added that up)

              Am I being stupid to spend that much, or is it normal? What is everyone else giving? I need ideas! I liked this idea, but budget is also important.

              HELP!!

              I am getting the EXACT same thing for my bridesmaids, and I've bought their shoes, and another necklace for the day of the wedding. The tiffany one is just a keepsake.

              I don't think it is out of control, I mean my 2 BM's spent a fortune hosting a fantastic shower, they (along with our BM and GM) are also planning a Stag and Doe

              I think it is a fantastic keepsake to honour thier efforts!

                I decided against jewelry because of all the wedding jewelry I have received for being someone else's BM, none of it is ever worn again!

                I decided to splurge on make up (bobby brown), make up brushes, and other various beauty kit items. I'm spending about 175 for my MOH, but she's worth it... and I know she'll wear it again.

                  Overstock has lots of cute inexpensive starfish necklaces - I mean for the 10 and 12 year old - they probably wouldn't know the difference:

                  Good luck!

                    Unless one of your sisters is a Tiffany fanatic I would suggest getting them a less expensive starfish necklace and something else. As for the younger girls I am sure they would love the idea of getting a Tiffany necklace but enjoy something they would use more often. You get them a less expensive starfish necklace and if they do not already have an ipod I am sure they would love one.

                      that is WAY more than i'm thinking of spending on gifts. in fact, my OWN wedding-day jewelry probably won't cost that much. i agree with the other ladies that some people might appreciate getting the name brand gift but the fact is that it's only over-priced (albeit well-designed) sterling silver jewelry. i know people who will wear nothing else but tiffany, but personally i just don't get it, even tho i'm a silver/white gold wearer.

                      i haven't really given it much thought yet, but i will probably buy their jewelry for the wedding as well as pay for an excursion or spa treatment.
