Bridesmaid gifts

I have two ideas for what to get my bridesmaids, but I can't decide which would be better:

Idea 1 - Traditional - I've seen some very pretty necklace / earring sets, and I've thought about getting them for the 4 girls. They'd all be slightly different, but follow the same theme (probably all bought from the same place). I'm pretty sure all of the girls have pierced ears - I don't, but that's another story. However, this is a very common present, and most of these girls have been in weddings before. I'm not sure if they'd ever even wear the jewelry again after my wedding.

Idea 2 - Useful - I was thinking of getting each girl a pocket-size multi-tool, like a Leatherman Micra or Squirt. I think this is neat, because it's non-traditional, much like the girls who I'll have around me on my wedding day. I could get them in several different colors, and I'm fairly sure all of the girls would use it.

So what do you think? Traditional or useful?

If I were one of the bridesmaids, I'd much prefer the Leatherman. :)

Yes, I vote for the leatherman.

Nothing says "thanks for being at the most important event of my life" like scissors, a strait knife and a lanyard attachment.

The bridesmaids gifts

Wow... just scanning through some of your old posts, Anitra - and I don't think I've told you how wonderful your choice in a bridesmaids gift is!
For those enquiring minds (and for whoever actually reads this), Anitra did go with the Leathermans. I would have worn the jewelry again, had she gone with that, but I have used my leatherman many, MANY times!
Oddly, I have another best friend who is getting married at the end of the month. She is having a medieval themed wedding, and just told me she got her girls daggers!! I'm psyched!
Wow... who woulda thought I'd be getting sharp pointy things at both weddings?? ;-)
