To Say Thanks // Gift Guide for bridesmaids

By Carrie Rose | Friday, 22 July 2016 2 comments

It's wedding season and although you brides are probably planning your big day focusing on your own outfits, hair, makeup flowers and oh yes the venue …. there is one thing that I can help with and that's the bridesmaids gifts!

These are the girls that have helped you plan the whole thing, helped keep you sane when the mother-in-law has been muscling in on your plans, and who have treated you to the greatest hen-do of all time. So, they deserve something pretty special, right?

If you’re out of ideas then you’ve come to the right place, because in today’s post you’ll find gift ideas that go from traditional to quirky, so you’re sure to find the perfect gift for your girl squad.

Jewellery is a girl’s best friend

If you’re a traditional group of girl, then you can’t go wrong with some classic, elegant jewellery. A gorgeous necklace, bracelet or anklet will never go out of style, and it’s something they will be able to keep with them, wear to all of your future nights out, and still remember your special day.

In particular, charm bracelets* are often a great option. You can choose a specific style that ties in with your wedding theme for them to wear on the day, but pick different charms for each of them, so that they mean something to your friendship. You can even mix and match additional bracelets to go with it to reflect their individual style.

Champagne with a twist
After the wedding, you’ll probably find yourself swimming in fancy wine glasses, cutlery sets and glass vases – yes, the wedding gifts will come flooding in, but did you ever think of giving something like this to your bridesmaids?

There are tonnes of companies out there who make personalised glassware, and there is surely no classier way to celebrate your wedding day that by buying your bridesmaids all individual champagne flutes with original designs. Or, you could paint them yourself!

Think practical

There’s nothing wrong with getting your bridesmaid something they will use every day. In fact, it may help to make those mundane activities raise a smile, as they’ll always be reminded of your awesome wedding when they look at it.

Things like clutch bags that match your colour scheme, makeup bags with personalised embroidery, or personalised flip-flops if you’re having your wedding on a beach, are all great alternatives to pricier gifts, but they’re still just as thoughtful.

Something for their desk

Let’s not forget that you girls are all hard-working, professional women, so what better way to remind them of their time served as bridesmaids, than by having paperweights made to sit on their desks at work? You can have a photograph from your hen-do put into the centre, or a funny quote from when you first met to remind you of your friendship.

Are you panicking about bridesmaid gifts? Comment below what you think would make the perfect present to say thanks to your girls!

  2. This is an incredibly beautiful space to have a wedding reception. The space at New York wedding venues is a long hall with a few side rooms (perfect for dancing and hor d'oeuvres). The windows at the end of the hall led to magnificently gorgeous panoramic views of the city.
