Bridesmaid gift ideas?

Hi Everyone! I wanted to see if anyone had any good ideas for bridesmaid gifts.  I'd like to get them all the same thing, nothing alcohol related because one is 16, but something that they would really use and appreciate.  Price range is about $50 for each.  Any input is MUCH appreciated...

Thanks!!

    I bought my BMs the perfume sampler set from Sephora, which is $50. They get 10 different sample perfumes to try and then bring in a coupon and exhcange it for a full size bottle of their favorite. It was a hit!

    I had gotten one myself for Christmas the year before and loved it, so that swayed me in that direction.

    ETA: I also gave them a necklace & earring set to wear for the wedding

    I think I'm getting my bridesmaid custom tote bags (screen printed with something cute relevant to each of them) that I ordered on Etsy, Indian pashminas in the wedding color family (all different), a bottle of their favorite perfume, and probably some interesting jewelry too (also all different and not required wearing for the wedding day!).

    Last time I was a BM, we got matching pearl necklace-and-earring sets, silver J. Crew flip flops for the reception, and mongrammed Eddie Bauer tote bags.

    I got my BMs floral patterned purses from Target, and inside I put silver flipflops from Old Navy (to change into at the reception), a thank you note for being my BM, and jewelry that my MIL made them.

    i got my BM's:

    jewelry (necklace, bracelet & earrings from alienbust.com-super cheap)
    pashmina (amazon.com, also cheap)
    vera bradley cosmetic case (on sale)
    a reusable tote to put everything in.

    they also got a bottle of wine, a glass wine topper and a wine glass/goblet-but obvi those are not valid suggestions for you.

    I guess I really didn't put too much thought in mine. Don't know if that's a good thing or bad. I only had 2 BM's so I gave them a gift card to a spa. They normally don't go to one so I thought they might enjoy it.

    Thanks guys for all of your very helpful input.  I never thought of doing multiple smaller gifts in a cute bag.. I was focused on one really nice gift (which is hard when you want 6 girls to love it equally). 

    Also, I did a Bio Page and linked to it in my Siggy, if anyone wants to check it out. I love reading all of yours!

    For the wedding I got each of them a pearl and rhinestone necklace and earrings.  As a thank you for my shower, I got each of them a box of candy, two lilac scented votive candles, and a $25.00 gift card to Amazon.  I was going to add a bottle of wine, but since I'm not sure what they all like to drink, I may add a box of tea instead.  If they're spa people, spa gift cards can be a great gift.  Some of mine were spa people, but not all.  They all love to read/listen to music, though.  You could do something different for each based on what each one likes to do.

    Amanda, love the new bio!  That picture of you and your FI is SO cute :)  And you know what- I felt exactly the same way about the Priory, ha!

    I suggest getting them each a gift certificate for their favorite salon, restaurant, etc. and putting it into a cute envelope or gift box. Not only is it something they'll actually use and enjoy, but it won't collect dust on a shelf or in a jewelry box.  :)
