If you’re a bride to be or helping plan a wedding for a bride then this will help you decide on the right gifts for your bridesmaids. You may be wondering if giving your bridesmaids a gift is even necessary. Even if you’re on a tight budget giving your girls a gift can make them feel appreciated and loved.
Bridesmaids often do more work and help out with the wedding more than you know. Making sure to thank them and show your appreciation for their involvement is so important. Whether small or big a gift is a great way to thank them for all their help.
Picking a gift that suits everyone can be difficult. That’s why we recommend choosing one item but personalizing it for each individual bridesmaid. Buying all your presents from the same place often makes it easier to deal with, while customizing them can make it feel extra thoughtful. You can look for personalized gifts available in the market for any budget. We have tried to narrow it down to our top four choices for personalized gifts that can make your shopping a bit easier.
- Personalized mugs are a great option for your tea-loving or coffee-slurping friends out there. You can get a mug with an appliqué or ceramic detail that features their initials or a fun saying. You can find options for mugs that are super affordable. To make them even more special you can fill the mug with your bridesmaids’ favorite candy, makeup, or snacks. Similarly, personalized candles could also make for great engagement gifts, especially if you mark the candles with the name of the couple and the date of the special day. Your girls will love this little surprise and it will make them feel appreciated.
- Coordinated accessories can be a great choice for your bridesmaids as well. Get everyone a custom headband in their favorite color that they can wear for years to come. Avoid gifts that are centered around your wedding date or theme because they won’t get much longevity out of the gift. Try instead finding a style that suits most people and customizing the colors, bedazzling, or even writing a special note on the inside of the headband.
- Personalized jewelry is a great option for your bridesmaids. Many companies will provide you with a discount for a bulk order as well. Go with each bridesmaids birth flowers for a sweet and feminine option that still feels personal. If that’s not quite their style you might consider an engraved bar necklace with their name, initials, birthday, or a saying that means something to both of you. This will be a gift they can cherish for years after your wedding.
- Custom robes for your bridesmaids are always a good idea. You can get the backs personalized with each of their names or choose a different color for every bridesmaid for an ombre effect. Not only will you look amazing and match while you get ready together but your bridesmaids can take them home with them to remember your special day. Be mindful about selecting the right sizes for each of your bridesmaids and they will be sure to love this gift.
Finding the right gifts for your bridesmaids doesn’t have to be stressful. There are so many speciality sites that cater to your bridal needs. Do a little research, see what fits into your budget, and you will easily find the perfect gifts to treat your bridesmaids to.
