    I have been searching for a while and cannot find anything amazing to give to my bridesmaids to say thank you.  I've seen a lot of the same things over and over again (jewellery, robes, personalized make up bags, etc), but I'm looking for something different.  None of that felt right.  Any new ideas that can be travel related, but also used again and again?  My ladies are in their mid twenties. 

     

    Thank you!

    So glad you asked this question because I am actually stuck on the same thing right now! 

    I ordered derby hats (big floppy sun hats) from marleylilly.com with their initials on them, but I would like to get them something else... maybe a beach towel? I look forward to seeing what others suggest!

    I'm having the same dilemma. So far I've settled on "wet bikini bags" with their names on the back from americanbridal.com and then I think I'm going to buy them each something specific for them. Cubs flip flops for one of them, opal earrings for one and grass scented perfume for the third.

    I think a beach towel is an awesome idea! I wanted to do this, but couldn't find exactly what I wanted for a good price. That's my vote! :)

    Hi ladies, I wanted to give my girls something personalized however something they could use again so I came up with three things to give my girls.... I have a $125.00 budget per girl.

     

    1) Rollerball perfume's from sephora. they range from 30-40 dollars

    2)Sephora gift certificate. In case they want to buy something before the trip. I'm loading it up with 50.00

    3)Toiletries bag, not a tacky one. I pinned one but I can't find it now. Anyway - I'm going to put the perfume and gift certificate and some candy from bulk barn in the bag and then give them it before the trip for the girls who live here :)

     

    I know the FI is giving his guys sunglasses.

    So far these are the things I got for my girls:

     

    1. White Havaianas flip flops 

    havaianas W

    2. Pinch Provisions Mini Emergency kits which doubles as little make up bags 

    pinch provisions

    3. I'm going to order them robes

    4. I might also give them each a nice necklace from Tiffany's.  (My fiance's aunt works at Tiffany's so she can get us a good deal)

    5.  Also paid their room deposits $50.00 each. 

     

    I'm treating them extra special because 3 of them are my sisters, 1 is my aunt and 1 is my best friend since 4th grade.  Making the trip to Cancun is asking a lot of them and they have been wonderful doing whatever they have to do to be there.  We are still working on the groomsmen not sure what my fiance wants to do for them I think we are purchasing their ties.

        I would go for something other than Tiffany's. It's such a huge mark up for something silver. You can get a great piece of jewelry for the fraction of the cost.
