At weddings, the couple receives gifts from all their guests. But what about the bridesmaids who have helped the bride prepare for the wedding day? They have shopped with her, and comforted her when she was nervous. As a bride, you need to show your appreciation and gratitude for the help you’ve received from your bridesmaids.
Whether they’re your sisters, cousins, best friends or colleagues, their gifts need to be special and thoughtful. Your wedding day is the happiest day of your life, not theirs. But a wonderful gift from you will help them treasure the memory of the wedding and remember you forever.
A girl’s best friends
Jewelry never goes out of style as a gift for most women. A set consisting of a necklace and earrings for each of the bridesmaids makes a classic gift. For something unique, you can search for antique jewelry that they can wear with any outfit.
Exquisite jewelry boxes also make a wonderful present. Have each bridesmaid’s name carved on the box. If possible, you can keep each one’s birthstone in the box.
A basketful of gifts
A gift basket doesn’t have to be an expensive affair. Select small gifts that will be of interest to the bridesmaids. Remove some time and find out each one’s individual tastes. For example, if one of them is a gourmet, she would appreciate a basket of exotic chocolates.
A music lover would like to have CDs and books on her favorite music bands or artists. A party-loving person would appreciate make-up kits, scarves and perfumes. Whatever you decide to buy, make sure you’re thinking about what the bridesmaid will like and not what you would have her like.
A certificate of gifts
Gift certificates might be unusual gifts they are appreciated nonetheless. Your bridesmaids will enjoy spa gift certificates (who wouldn’t love a day of head-to-toe pampering!). You can also give gift certificates for activities like yoga or cooking.
Remember your bridesmaids who have helped realize your wedding plans. Show your appreciation with a magnificent and meaningful gift.
