Everyone loves weddings. The girls you choose to be your bridesmaids are a big part of the reason why. They help you get through the day and give you a squad to share the excitement with as you walk down the aisle. From picking out dresses to celebrating at the bachelorette party, Bridesmaids are the backbone of any wedding ceremony. How do you honor the women who are willing to stand by your side on your amazing day? Here are some gift ideas that your bridesmaids will love.
You know those subscription boxes that are all the rage? They can make great gifts for your bridesmaids. There is something for everyone and you can get just one box or a series of boxes to be delivered over several months.
Makeup boxes are popular as are healthy living subscriptions. You can also choose something ore whimsical depending on the personalities of your bridesmaids.
A handmade gift is always a welcome gesture. Even if you want to make something yourself, you will already be busy with everything that goes into running your wedding that you can quickly bite off more than you can chew.
That’s where a site like Etsy can come into play. Scroll through the site for the perfect customized and handmade gift to show your appreciation.
Presenting gifts personalized with your bridesmaids’ names can make the gesture more individualized for each friend or family member standing up in your wedding. From bags to jewelry, there are plenty of options for customizing gifts.
Stamped jewelry is an easy and sometimes cost-effective way to personalized something. You may wish to gift them with a formal monogram design for anything from bags to loungewear. A stunning piece of jewelry with a diamond sourced online can also make a bold statement.
Girls Day Out
Not All gifts have to be physical objects. You can treat your bridesmaids to a day of pampering at a spa followed by an amazing dinner. Join them if it fits into your schedule, but you can also give them gift certificates they can use on their own time. This is especially good if they’re not all located in the same town.
You can customize the experience to fit their tastes. If you have a friend who doesn’t spend money on massages very often, it’ll be a special treat. If a more introverted friend would prefer a day at the bookstore, get a certificate for something she’ll love.
You can also commemorate your friendship and celebrate the event by framing a photo of you and each of your bridesmaids. It can be a group photo if everyone is friends or you can make sure to get a great snap of you and each woman in your party to frame.
Pick out a frame for the photo that matches their personality. Include a card to let them know you want to celebrate the memories with your friends, sisters, cousins, or anyone else you’ve tapped to be in your wedding party.
In the era of simplifying and binging Marie Kondo episodes on Netflix to determine what sparks joy, you may want to consider a gift that won’t take up space. Consumables are a perfect choice for your bridesmaids will enjoy but won’t put in a future donate pile.
If your bridesmaids love chocolate or decadent snacks, do that. You can give them a bottle of wine or liquor if you know their tastes. You can even put it together in a basket that includes glasses or specialty items like bitters or flavored simple syrups.
Whatever you choose to do, let your bridesmaids know that you’re honored that they’re standing by your side on your special day.
