It’s getting closer to the weekend… I bet you are excited for New Year’s Eve! It’s also time for me to start jotting down my New Year’s resolutions. Anything to help accomplish big & small goals in the new year for 2012… even little as writing em’ down on a piece of paper, right? What are your plans for New Year’s Eve? Whatever you do, it’s a night you have to be careful especially if you are out & about.
It looks like 2012 will be in a bit of wedding mode for me as I’ve been invited to three weddings in May, June and October. That should be fun as long as I’m simply in attendance… lol. I’ve been asked about suggestions for practical bridesmaid gifts (which I’m no expert at) on a budget from the savvy ladies I adore. So I might as well share it with you. As with lots things, I always tell people – when in doubt, go online to shop! It somehow always simplifies things for me. I find online shops and reviews to be the best resource for all kinds of gift searching including the “what-to-get-bridesmaids” dilemma!
If you have a tight budget, don’t sweat it (remember these two imperative words, no stress!). One place you want to check out is American Bridal. They make wedding gifting easy breezy by offering a variety of wedding gifts and accessories at super affordable prices with many items under $50. Here are some of my favs from the site not only to spoil your bridesmaids but yourself too. I prefer practical gifts that can be used over and over… don’t you?
Cherish the memories even while laying on a beach or plane hopping.
Sweet jewelry pieces will continue to be enjoyed for years after the wedding!
Who wouldn’t like a simple evening clutch or canvas duffel bag?
Adorable! Quilted & polka dot cosmetic bags. Monogrammed per request.
Misc goodies from a personalized wall print to a sparkly jewelry box.
