When it comes to choosing gifts for your bridesmaids, finding the perfect thing can be a difficult task. A lot of brides get stuck between wanting to choose something that is personal and special and not wanting to spend a lot of their wedding budget. By the time it gets round to buying a gift, the choice available can either be overwhelming or disappointing.
Naturally, you want to give your cherished bridesmaids a gift of appreciation and what you choose can depend on your relationship with the bridesmaids, so don’t feel that you need to buy the same gift for all of your bridesmaids. Here are 5 of the best bridesmaid gifts that you can choose for your bridal party.
Whether they’re for carrying their things around on the big day, or for taking their things to the beach on their next holiday, personalised and special bags are a great gift to give. They’re ideal to use everyday and can be personalised to suit your individual bridesmaids, whether you choose a different colour, style or pattern. From washbags to totes, there are plenty of choices available to suit all budgets.
Plants or Flowers
Flowers are a traditional gift to give and are perfect for every occasion. If you want to give them as a gift for your bridesmaids, consider choosing their favourite colours or flowers, or perhaps give them a bouquet of the flowers that you have chosen for your wedding bouquet.
If you want to give flowers with a little more meaning, take a look into the different symbolisms that flowers have. For example, if you want to show your friendship or symbolise a new beginning, then choose a bouquet of yellow roses. They could be the perfect gift for your maid of honor!
A classic bridesmaids gift, jewellery is an ideal gift to give and can be unique to the recipient. There is such a wide variety available when it comes to jewellery, which makes it the perfect gift if you want to give something a little different to each bridesmaid.
Depending on the colour chosen for your bridesmaid dresses, you could give different coloured earrings or a personalised necklace that has their initials engraved on the back. If you looking for something a little fancier, then why not make sure that your bridesmaids are on time for your big day with a watch? Ladies fashion watches can be matched to most dresses and will add a subtle touch of elegance to your bridesmaids outfits.
Whether you decide on a luxury, dainty tea cup for your bridesmaids to use on the morning of your wedding or a personalised wine glass for your wedding breakfast, drinkware is a great gift choice for bridesmaids and gives them a keepsake of your special day. Why not match your choices to your bridesmaids personalities? If one of your bridesmaids is a gym-goer, then how about a personalised water bottle? Or if you have a gin-loving bridesmaid, a beautiful crystal glass is something that they can use and admire for a long time.
There is not much that is better on the morning of your wedding than seeing all of your bridesmaids having fun and being excited. Choosing personalised or matching pyjamas or dressing gowns is a great idea, especially if you are all getting ready together! Not only will you get some great photos from your special morning, but remember that comfy bridesmaids are happy bridesmaids.
