GO WITH FLASK HE HE…

but i think anything useful is cool but the problem tends to be brides/grooms engrave them with their name, date and all that so they get kind of dated/cheesy.

i always thought jewellry is the coolest. like if they all wear the same necklace or earrings. something practical you can use again.

ooh look this article agrees…

Finally, make your bridesmaid gifts memorable! These days, many brides are opting to give gift sets to their bridesmaids – such as a matching necklace and bracelet, or a heart-shaped box with matching earrings tucked inside, presented in a beautiful gift bag. The girls can wear the jewelry for your wedding day, and then have it to enjoy and think of you each time it’s worn later on.

Shopping for bridesmaid gifts is one of those tasks that doesn’t have a specific timeline. Of course, it’s better to buy them sooner rather than later—in general, aim for no later than one to two months prior to the wedding. (The last thing you want to do the week before your wedding is shop for presents—save procrastinating for Christmas Eve).

A friend of mine, who’s wedding I was in, gave us all gift cards to stores we really liked. Mine was to Apple, another’s was to Sephora, another’s was to a clothing store I don’t remember. Also, she had some beautiful fabric from India so she had purses made for each of us that were specific to our taste. They were really beautiful and incredibly thoughtful. She also had included a couple of small things, earrings for the big day, some lotion, and a lovely letter written to each of us. It was the most thoughtful and sweet bridesmaids present I’ve ever gotten.
