Oooh, this was the first thing I started on and I am going to keep on until the big day... which is still about a year and 1/2 away!
I have a bm and moh. My mom and FIs mom are also getting similar gifts.
At Walmart at the end of the summer I picked up large beach-style purses. They were 75% off. I made them barefoot jewelry, and have also been filling each with soaps and journals and lipgloss and compact mirrors and little picture frames.... all that kind of thing. I love the dollar bins at Michaels. Everything is beach themed, and I always try to get two slightly different things. I am making them each a tank top (with their 'title' ironed on), and I just received notice that personalized bracelets I ordered from etsy are on their way! Yay!
I am still going to get them little cotton clutches from etsy I have my eye on. They are really inexpensive, and very small, but cute. I am thinking for holding room key and tip money. We are also going to buy their dresses, and I think I am going to get each one a pink flask (one pink leather, one sparkly). I still want to get them each a necklace, but not until we figure out what dresses they will be wearing (I am torn between starfish and pearls... though I now have found ones that are pearled starfish!) They will also be getting bubbas like the rest of our guests, but theirs will be engraved. I am probably going to keep adding items to the bags, but probably not too many more. Probably personalized flip- flops too.
The biggest thing is that I am doing involves my stagette. I know the basic plan.... we are all going on a 6-hr road trip to this famous spa none of us have been to before for a weekend. It is all flapper-themed. Anyway, there is a spa package for a large group of girls to get pedicures and massages. I will be booking and paying for that as a surprise to them.
Maybe try to do something to spend some time with them? I only have two standing up with me (FI only has one) so we are keeping our wedding party very small. Therefore, we want to spoil them a little! My BM is a very good friend of mine and FI's, and my moh is my little sister who will be graduating from high school a month before we get married. They are awesome, and we want to go all out for them.
Hope that helps!
