I am looking for great bridesmaids' gifts. I have seven girls to shop for, all different in their own way. I want to spend about $50-75 (+/-) a piece and would much rather get them all the same thing. Do you have any suggestions? Group Gifter

Dear Group Gifter
Bridesmaids gifts are special presents that you will always remember. Remember that when you are taking to retailers be sure and ask them for a bulk price. Not too many people get seven sales at once. Use your bargaining power.
I've gotten many wonderful gifts such as: a Tiffany bud vase, sterling silver bracelets, a lined travel cosmetics bag, solitaire pearl earrings, slippers and hand cream, sandals, travel and beach bags, a silver evening clutch and a pashmina. I have loved each and every gift. Here are some of these ideas in your price range.
On the high end, there's Tiffany's Metropolis Bud Vase for $80.
Everybody loves these comfortable Jack Rogers sandals. They sell for $79 (but you can definitely get a better deal on these). Ask your gals for their shoe sizes and choose a color to match the bridesmaids dress. This way they can change into them at the reception and dance comfortably all night long.
You can also choose a wrap in the same color family as their dresses. This is an especially great gift if you are having an outdoor ceremony.
This medium sized Kate Spade cosmetics case sells for $60.
Lastly, you can give the gift that will last all year. L'Occitane's Hand Cream is to die for! And that little tube will last you all year long. It sells for $25.
Pair it with something else to jazz it up a little. We all got mani's and pedi's together before the wedding and my friend gave us matching slippers. I still wear them and I think it's a great idea. Check out these adorable and warm, winter cutie bootie's that are perfect for a girls night in sleepover party...(and they are only $22).
