When it comes to buying gifts for your bridesmaids, the ideas are limited only by ones imagination. From asking them to be part of your big day, to giving thank you gifts for all their support; you want to give them gifts that they’ll love, cherish and that create lasting memories.
Some brides like to treat their bridesmaids before the wedding, plus it give the girls time to unwind and relax before the big day. Gifts like: weekend at the spa or just a day at the spa, massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, getting nails done together or maybe getting hair styled together, are all ideas that are fast becoming part of the pre-wedding criteria. Other ideas include cards that ask “Will you be my bridesmaid” and “Thank you for being my bridesmaid” or just have a girl’s getaway day or better yet a weekend getaway. The best part is the girls all get a chance to bond and have fun.
Because each bridesmaid is unique, their gifts should all be items that fit her personality and varying tastes. For example; if she’s a busy professional, you might by items like: a personalized travel kit, complete with all the travel necessities for her, a travel bag, garment bag or toiletry bag. Other items would include: Jewelry rolls or trinket boxes, personalized checkbook covers or passport covers and finally a laptop carrying case or diamond shaped crystal paperweight that come in a variety of styles and colors. All these items fit into her busy lifestyle, yet still show your appreciation and thanks.
Because weddings are a blending of two families, the wedding party will also be very diverse. There is no rule that states you have to get them all the same gift. Items like a photo album, filled with pictures that each girl remembers, is a unique and charming way to say thanks. Other items are: Personalized Ipod case or CD holder to go with a set of personalized car seat covers or steering wheel covers, personalized red or white wine glasses, martini glasses or barware and finally elegant chenille or terry robes, slippers or luxurious pajamas. These items all vary as much in unique styles and personality as your bridesmaids can. Buying according to her likes and interests will make shopping for bridesmaids gifts much easier, show your impeccable taste, and will become a cherished keepsake.
The rest of the gift ideas are all items that can be given to all the bridesmaids, but are personalized for each individual and can vary is colors, styles and materials. Items like: A journal or a photo frame, filled with a memorable picture, sterling silver necklaces or bracelets, diamond earrings, beautiful silk, satin or velvet cosmetic bags, a keepsake box with a photo insert or a key ring. You could also get a personalized beach chair cover, beach towels or hand bags. The last gift idea is to get funny gifts like: A bridesmaid survival kit or maybe a T-shirt, sweatshirt or tank top that says “I survived the bride” or “I survived the wedding ceremony.” The best part about all these gifts is there are so many unique styles out there to choose from. All colors, sizes, and fabrics are available, to satisfy even the most particular of tastes.
Weddings are a time to celebrate new beginnings, so being surrounded by the love and support of all your friends and family is a great way to start any beginning. All these gift ideas are made truly unique with personalization, which turns an ordinary gift into something very memorable. Say “Thank You” from the heart and you’ll never go wrong when it comes to finding the right gift. Happy Shopping :-)
