    Hello,

    I am leaving in a week and I am so frustrated with bridesmaids gifts. I have no idea what to get and every time I think I found something everyone will like then one of them says "eh". Then I want to spend more than my budget allows to get something nicer.... I am FRUSTRATED!!! Can I just get them all a gift card to their favorite store? My cousin thinks that is being impersonal and lazy to get gift cards and you only do it for people you don't really care about but need something in a hurry....

    What do you think? Should I just wait til I get to Mexico and find something? or should I get gift cards? or should I get them some jewelry

      OMG! You sound just like me!!

      I leave tomorrow and JUST got the gifts for the girls this week. I ended up getting them each a watch, all different based on their style. Then I got a little travel journal to go with them and also paid for the material for their dresses.

        I think gift cards would be fine or even a gift certificate like TA Maureen said.

        If it helps, this is what I plan on doing. I'm getting jewelry(doesn't have to be expensive, there are lots of good deals on nice jewelry at cheap prices). I'm going to have their initials engraved on the jewelry to personalize it more. You can pick out the jewelry based on each BMs tastes or by their role. For instance, I'm getting a necklace for my MOH and bracelets for my BMs. All will have lockets or something similar attached to have to intial on. Since you're tight on time with only a week, there are lots of shops that you can go to that can engrave the jewelry in an hour's time, maybe even less. Just a suggestion. I'm sure you'll do fine.

        Hope it all works out and Best wishes on your wedding day =]

          I say the thought counts more than anything. Gift cards would be just fine so don't let it stress you out. I really like TA Maureen's spa/salon gift certificate idea also.

            I would love to get spa/salon certificate but the resort we are staying on gives each room $300 in spa credit, so I doubt that they will need extra.

            I thought about getting them each different things for each different girl but I thought you are supposed to get everyone the same thing?

              The gift doesn't have to be the same for every girl. However, I would really try sticking to about the same price range for each gift.

                I got the girls some personalized beach bags, a hair flower, jewelry and bought their dresses. It doesn't have to be too difficult- just shop for them like you would for Christmas or birthdays- if you do that.

                I personally am not a huge fan of gift cards, but that's a personal opinion type thing.

                  not a huge fan of gift cards either, especially if your girls have really made your planning special.

                  i'm getting the MOH a necklace, one BM a bracelet and the other one a ring, b/c that's what each of them really like in jewelry. i also got them personalized tote bags, BM and MOH tanks, and paying for mani's the day of the wedding.

                  since you've only got a week...what is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about each of your girls?? maybe this will help you figure out gifts based on their interests
