    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 like the idea of a Tiffany bracelet. This one is very pretty, and under 150 dollars! It's definately something that your bridesmaids will cherish and wear again.

          I tried to cut and paste from their website, but check out their silver bracelets in the under $250 dollar section and you will find something nice there!

            Tiffany is always a good bet.  Also, what spa gift certificate at the resort?  Or if you have time, maybe you can plan an outing with just the 2 of them.

            I think I'm going to do something from Tiffany as well.

               A special outing or spa day with them are definitely nice gifts too.

                If you're all in the same city, I like the idea of a spa outing too...then you get quality time together which is often the best gift!

                  One of my favorite gifts was a silver monogramed frame, with a nice quotation on it.  I still have it up in my house.

                    Personalized gifts are ideal present to give bridesmaids. You might, as an example, give out some simple, yet sublime, jewellery like a chain, pendant or bracelet with the bridesmaid’s name or personal information like this

                    Otherwise, you could gift her a personalized silver photo frame with an image of you and her. For example

                    JDS11_GC859Blue.jpg

                     

                     

                    Alternatively, a personalized bag with their name or initials would also make them happy

                     

                    CA11_2131_2.jpg

                     

                     

                    Other options may be a personalized shaped jewellery box or wine, chocolates and spa gift baskets. I did some research online to look for a website where I could find these gift items and I came across this website called Blue Chopsticks.
