    I am really struggling with gift ideas for my 2 best friends who are coming down for my wedding in the Dominican Republic.  I am not having bridesmaids but they are the closest thing to it.  I have known these girls for most of my life; they knew my Dad before he passed away and ran the last 10 miles of my last marathon with me when I was having a hard time - they are my family.  My wedding is coming up soon, May 27th and I still haven' thought of anything yet.  If anyone has any suggestion that would be awesome!


    I don't want to get anything monogrammed, or pretty much anything that you would typically get for a bridesmaid.  I just feel like I have so much going on right now that I can't thingk clearly about this :P


    Thanks so much for the help!!!!

      I'm not sure what non typical gift you could get them that wouldn't be a typical gift for their bday or holiday. But, what about making them both a scrapbook with all your memories from when you met up until your big day? Go to like Michaels and buy a scarpbook and just start cutting out pictures of the 3 of you and adding stickers and quotes and you will fill it up in no time. You will have to make two of them since you have two close friends. This is very personal and not a "typical" gift. But if you want to add more to the gift then just a photo album/scrapbook, you can also treat them to a spa day on the beach on DR.... 


      Just some thoughts of what I would think would be very thoughtful and better than monogrammed items as a gift. =)

        One of my favorite presents I've ever received is a silver frame from my sister engraved with "sisters by chance, friends by choice", and then she put a picture of us in it.  I don't know how unique it is, but it was very special.  Maybe you could do something like that, and then have a photo taken at the wedding of the three of you?  That is all I can think of right now, but I thought I'd pass it along.  Good luck!

            Spa is perfect- especially if you can make it a special day with them- get them a heartfelt card and just really enjoy some girl time!
