    Hello all.. I could use some suggestions.

    My sister is my one and only attendant in my wedding.. and by far my best friend in the WORLD! I want to get her something very special as a thank you.. and I need some suggestions. I had thought a locket with a picture of the 2 of us growing up, but she has 2 very little girls.. and has a locket of them.

    Any help would be appreciated!!!

      How sweet! IMO for cases like this you need a personalized gift, or at least one component of the gift should be. You can make anything you want these days, these always stood out if my mind but after my bm's pissed me off I didn't order them then by the time I wasn't mad anymore it was too late...lol

        This site has some nice personalized gifts to choose from. Maybe if she's into jewelery it would be cool to give her a necklace or bracelet with the birthstones of both of you along with her two girls. Also.....sometimes people like time together more than gifts....perhaps plan a weekend away to a spa....or something for the two of you to spend time together. You could then present it to her with some nice spa products, slippers, monogrammed robe....etc. Just an idea.....

          i had my two sisters only in my wedding and i got them a piece of jewlery from Tiffanys- i thought it would be a nice treat for them since they would never buy it for themselves

            my favorite BM gift (& I've gotten a lot of them) was a little leather photo album. It had pictures of me & the bride being silly together with funny sayings on the page next to the picture. Each BM got a different one. I started working on making these for my future BMs right after that wedding. I scanned a bunch of picutres & had 100 prints made. I'm not going to have BMs now, but I'll still make the albums. I've done the hard part already, might as well finish it.

              I also am only having my two sisters (Matron of Honor and Maid of Honor.) The three of us are VERY close and I too am thinking of getting them some very nice jewelry as their gifts. I kind of like the idea of jewelry since it's something they will have forever and always remember where they got it.

                I think the ideas the girls already mentioned are great. I always wanted something from Tiffany, Cain said he was going to buy me something for our wedding gift but then we decide not to exchange gifts. So I'll wait for another holiday to get it. :-)

                  That's what I'm getting my sisters too...the silver necklace with the initial charm. They would NEVER buy themselves Tiffany's, so I think it makes it special.
