There are so many little details within planning a wedding that can often be overlooked. So much to do, so much to spend, and so many people to consider – how do you do it all? At #ShopNTL, we’re obsessed with Pinterest for all types of inspiration, especially when it comes to weddings. How many of us have planned our dream wedding on Pinterest, regardless of whether or not we’re actually getting married? (We all hesitantly raise our hands). So one of those little details the brides will want to consider are her bridesmaid gifts. They are little thank-yous for your loved ones who have helped you put your wedding together, and have agreed to stand up with you and witness your beautiful marriage. You want the gift to be personal, maybe practical or useful, and something that will make your bridesmaid feel loved and appreciated. We’ve found some unique and thoughtful bridesmaid gift ideas to share with you to help you check bridesmaid gifts off your long list of to-do’s before I DO.
Here’s a simple gift that will most likely appeal to everyone’s taste and will make them feel special. A simple gold filled necklace with their first initial is something they can wear on the wedding day, and pretty much every day for that matter. It’s always nice to think about getting your bridesmaids something they can use for more than one day. There are also several different interpretations of this bracelet on Geordie Designs so you can pick something for each particular girl that will suit her style.
This is such a special idea that can use your creative and thoughtful touch to make it extraordinary. Find a box and decoupage your favourite picture of you and your bridesmaid. Then, you stuff it with little things that will make her laugh, a couple of sweets, and a couple of her favourite things. You can make this as simple or as elaborate as you would like or can afford. She’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness, and she’ll cherish the box as a keepsake.
We’ve all seen the personalized robes as a very popular bridesmaid gift choice. For a little change, a pair of sweatpants are something your girls can relax in while getting ready, and can wear around the house. She’ll smile every time she slips them on because she’ll remember how much fun she had participating in your wedding. There are several fonts and colour schemes to choose from.
This is another gift where you’re purchasing the foundation, and then you can make it your own with thoughtful additions. One idea we like is filling the bag with little things your bridesmaid loves that will help get her through the wedding day. Get a mini bottle of her favourite drink, a couple of sweets, some tissues, mints, and maybe some cosmetics for touch ups. Maybe even add some things that’ll help her the next morning, like a mini hangover kit of sorts like Gatorade, Aspirin, vitamins, or some treats.
