For the bridesmaids a common gift idea is jewelry that they will wear on the day of the wedding - that way they all have the same jewelry and everyone is coordinated. If you don't want to do that, you could do gift certificates to a spa if they are all from the area, or give them nice photo frames in which they could put a picture of the wedding. There are many things you can do for the groomsmen. Cuff links can be given and then worn at the wedding, if you have French cuffs on the tuxedo shirts. You can get flasks for each of them, and have them engraved with their names, initials, etc. You could also do money clips, and have them engraved, similarly to the flasks. The link below here has some great ideas yo could check into as well... http://www.americanbridal.com/gifts.html Congrats and good luck :-)

We didn't want any of the cheesy gifts. Engraved mugs, bracelets etc... It's a bunch of cheap crap that no one really wants. I bought my bridesmaid's the jewlery that they would be wearing for the wedding. I also bought a jewlery roll to put it in. That way they have something to take away. For the groomsmen we did individual gift cards. We picked a store each guy would like and got $50 gift cards for each one. For the maid of honor. I bought her a necklace from Tiffany. I spent $150 on it. For the best man my fiancee bought him a Kenneth Cole watch. Spending about $125 ( I think it could be more)

My best friend had a similar problem with her wedding party. She ended up getting them bridesmaids the jewelry they were going to wear for the wedding inside of these gorgeous jewelry boxes she found. Each of the boxes had the maid's initials carved out and was lined inside with the fabric from her bridesmaid's dress. For the guys it was a little harder. She knew most of them wouldn't use cuff links, so instead she got them a computer program that you could edit pictures with and a really nice leather camera case that had their name and number burned (like engraved) inside. (Most of the groomsmen were brothers and had all received the same camera from their mom for Christmas that year with the ugliest case). To make gifts cheaper, get tote bags at Wal-Mart, Target, (or customized at Land's End) and fill it with things that are special about you guys, like the wine you drank on your anniversary, your favorite chocolate, golf balls for when your husband and best man play, a gift certificate for manicures at a local spa... Good Luck!

We bought them all personalized glasses with their names and the wedding date and what part they had in the wedding. For the bridesmaids I bought them earings or necklaces or something for them to wear during the wedding. Something to make them feel very special. Good luck!

For the Bride's maids, it's pretty easy...jewelry. Earrings, a bracelet, necklace, even a cute cartoon watch. For the men, you can do gift certificates at like Home Depot or perhaps some hip clothing store in your area that you think they would like. There's the old favorites though, wallets, watches, T-shirts, I know of one couple that actually had t-shirts made for the bridal party. Good luck and congratulations!!

Select something personal. I wouldn't opt for the same old jewelry gifts for the ladies but something that means much more to them. Perhaps personal photos in a frame? That would be something they could look back on and have great memories. For the guys, why not an all day outing together doing something they all enjoy.

For my bridesmaids, I bought the jewelry and then also bought them personalized tote bags (very cute!). For the groomsmen, my fiancee bought personalized bar signs and gave our ring bearer a personalized baseball bat. It was cute. It was a tough decision for the jewelry because I wanted to be certain that they would wear it again. There is a great site the makes custom jewelry.

We got all of the guys a personalized glass mug with their initials on it. Then we filled it with something for each of them. (post of our guys were cops so we filled most of their's with bullets), you could also fill them with their favorite candy or anything else that relates to them. For the girls, I got them each a candle that said "thank you for being my bridesmaid" and it had a nice scripture with it also. Then I got them a frame to go with it and told them when we got our pictures back I would add a picture to go with the frame.

A book of something they're interested in, and then write a nice personal note on the cover page. That's what we did, and they were really appreciated. It's a more thoughtful, practical gift than an engraved picture frame, flask, or compact.
