Bridesmaid gifts

So I'm thinking that I want to take the girls out for manicure/pedicure the week before the wedding. I think it'll be a nice time for us to all go out together and enjoy each other's company, while getting pampered. I'd probably also get them some kind of tangible, but smaller, gift, too.

What do you guys think?

Also, where would you suggest going for it?

    I think that sounds very nice. People that I know who have gotten mani/pedis with the whole bridal party really enjoyed the time together. I guess where to go depends on where everyone is located.

    Not familiar with that area, but I am sure someone will have a suggestion. :)

    This is what I did as a gift!  My girls are not jewelry wearers, and I knew anything else I got them would just get thrown out.  I got them a nice pedicure with a foot massage and a manicure too-- all together it cost me about $65 a person. 

    The day of the mani/pedis I also gave them Old Navy flip flops that matched their dresses for them to wear home that day (don't want to mess up your nails!) and to wear at the wedding to dance in. 

    As far as places go, have you looked at Illusions on Galloway Road in Bensalem?  It's in the same shopping center as Celebrations.

    I am planning on doing a mani/pedi gift group trip as a gift too! Also considered paying for the girls' hair & makeup day of...I would really like to be able to do this, as I will be having them pay for their own dresses. Since that all adds up to a lot I'm getting each a small gift, plus their hostess gifts at the bridal shower.
