So often, however, when searching for the perfect little something for these honored attendants, a shopping trip only turns up the same old, usual suspects. Not to worry - maybe I can help. Before you find yourself humming "It's all been done..." (gotta love the Barenaked Ladies!) while browsing through an endless supply of ho-hum gifts, check out my go-to list below. From classic to quirky, it covers all the bases, so all that's left to do is tie on a bow!
