Non-Bridal Party Gifts?

FI and I aren't having a wedding party, it's a very small wedding and we really wanted it to be just us.  

But I have three really close girlfriends that I grew up with that are doing all the planning for my bachelorette party and they have really put in a lot of time and effort and money.  I want to get them something to express my thanks, but I'm at a total loss.  

I was thinking of having the photographer make sure to get a good picture of each of them with their SO and then I would frame it for them and send it after the wedding along with a heartfelt thank you.  But then what is the picture turns out bad.

FI suggested to pay for their nails when we go to the salon, but only 2 of the girls are doing that with me...

They are all traveling, so I don't want to get them anything that would be a hassle to bring home either.  

Do you ladies have any other ideas?  What are you doing for your friends?

We had our dream wedding at Mirage on May 3, 2014!

  • I'm not sure if you have the "South Hill Designs" necklace company in your area (I think it's an american company, but I live in Canada and have a consultant here) but you can make really cute lockets with/for your girls!
    I made them with my bridesmaids and paid for everything so I picked 2 charms each (a $ for Vegas and their initial) and let the girls pick their own 2 charms to personalize it. So, some of them picked charms to signify their husband, travelling, their profession, their pets or just a heart for love. They turned out so pretty! 
    I think jewellery is always appreciated so you could just get a normal necklace or bracelet too.

  • I'm making them bags, one of my friends just added personalized drink Tumblers with their name on it, a personalized make up case and a few other things

  • I got my sister a personalized tumbler with a nice poem on it, with a watch and a necklace.

  • Etsy- I'll be giving them each a personalized necklace, not with their name, but with a phrase/symbol that fits their personality, like this:


  • Is there a show they all want to see or a restaurant they want to try? Maybe you can get them tickets to that show or a restaurant gift card. Then they can "use" the gift while they're there and don't have to bring anything home with them.
