Celebrating your wedding is one of the most special experiences of your life. You’ve chosen those special people who will be there for you from start to finish, helping you plan, offering support, and assisting in planning details and events that would be overwhelming even for the most organized bride.
As a special thanks to the women who have been through it all with you, there are some special gifts you can get to show your appreciation of your bridesmaid besties.
Gifts don’t need to be extravagant or cost a fortune, but they are great ways to show your appreciation for special ladies in your life.
Interesting Ideas for Gifts for Bridesmaids
Tee-shirts for parties and events
I designed these T-Shirts with brides and bridesmaids in mind. These t-shirts are perfect for showing your team spirit and for making everyone feel included in the special events, like wedding dress shopping, girls night out, cake tasting, and even to wear at the bachelorette party. Shop these tees on Amazon and find more styles on Redbubble.
A Night Out on the Town
One of the best ways to show your bridesmaids that you appreciate them is by taking them out for the night, this can be early on in the wedding planning process and will provide an opportunity for your bridesmaids to get to know each other and give you a chance to explain your ideas for the wedding planning process. If you want to splurge a bit, consider booking a VIP Exclusive Night Club Experience.
If you aren’t a night owl, and know that your gal pals wouldn’t be interested in just another night out on the town, consider taking the gals out to a nice brunch. Brunch is a fun way to get to know each other and spend some time doing introductions and doing initial planning.
If you and the gang are traveling to a beautiful location for your wedding, consider getting your bridesmaids a designer passport holder. These are perfect for protecting passports and can be a fabulous keepsake that will be cherished for years to come.
A Virtual Assistant
Virtual assistants can be an enormous help for your maid of honor and bridesmaids, saving them an enormous amount of time in planning the wedding and helping to work out the tiny details, like scouting potential venues and calling catering companies. A good place to post your ad is on We Are Virtual Assistants, you’ll be able to work with a virtual assistant one on one and find an assistant who will work within your budget.
Most women love shoes and they could usually use a cute new pair of heels or pumps. Giving the gift of a beautiful new pair of shoes is one that your friends will remember and can get some good use out of. Pick shoes that will remind your friends of the wedding and are beautiful and classy.
Jewelry is special and pretty. It can be customized and bought specifically for each bridesmaid in mind, by adding birthstones or inscriptions and dates. Choose something that is made from high-quality metal, as you want to ensure your friends don’t get their fingers stained green from low-quality metals and leads, and that anyone with sensitive skin or allergies is comfortable wearing the jewelry you pick out. Use a trusted manufacturer like James Avery or even consider purchasing from a diamond shop like Kay or Jared.
Beauty products are perfect for gifting. Make sure that you pick colors that will work for all your bridesmaids and that you don’t leave your gifts sitting in a hot car. It’s a good idea to shop online and have these delivered that way you won’t forget that you have products sitting in your car or lose gifts you’ve bought. You can easily shop online at retailers like Macy’s and find perfect gifts and beauty bags for your friends. For example, right now Macy’s is offering an 8 piece gift set with an Elizabeth Arden purchase, this is a great idea for gifting bridesmaids, as you’ll receive extra freebies when you purchase and the gift sets are so pretty.
Cratejoy is a great place to find boxes for ladies who love being pampered. Pampering your bridesmaids has never been easier with these monthly subscription boxes. These are perfect for showing them how much you care. With the Pause and Unwind Box via CrateJoy, they’ll receive five items such as high-quality spa/beauty products, indulgent goodies, & much more.
These are just a few interesting ideas you may not have considered, just remember to pick gifts that your bridesmaids will really appreciate and remember fondly. Items that can be used instead of merely trinkets will be very appreciated.
