13th April 2018 |By | Be the first to comment

Your bridesmaids play a pretty essential role in your big day and in the lead up to it, being there for you as only best friends can be. With that in mind, many brides like to say “thank you” with a special gift. Here’s our list of 12 of the best bridesmaid gifts, ready to inspire you!

1) Jewellery

The classic go-to gift is jewellery as there’s such an enormous variety to choose from. Necklaces, bracelets, rings, charms, earrings, etc. But just because it’s the most common gift doesn’t mean it’s a boring choice—you should see our trendy rose gold flasks disguised as bangles!

2) Jewellery Box

Another popular gift choice is a jewellery box as they come in all manner of shapes, styles, and sizes. We’re particularly fond of our collection of jewellery boxes, such as our versatile glass-and-rose-gold boxes that don’t have to hold jewellery at all—you could fill it with hair care accessories, makeup, or just some pretty confetti.

3) Nightwear

Treat your bridesmaids with a beautiful personalised dressing gown, pyjama set, or shirt, perhaps complete with a set of comfy foldable pocket shoes, a luxury eye mask, and a cute cushion.

4) Drinkware

A reusable water bottle, cup, tea infuser, tumbler, or flask is perfect for the sport-lover or someone who’s always on the go. On the other hand, there’s also a wide range of personalised drinkware like mugs and steins and personalised glassware such as wine glasses, shot glasses, and flutes to choose from.

5) Bags

To ensure a gift that’s perfect for everyday use, consider gifting your bridesmaid a personalised tote bag that’s ideal as a beach bag or carry-all, or a personalised cosmetic bag that’s great for daily beauty products or as a travel/toiletry bag.

6) Photos

For a very personal, heartfelt gift that your bridesmaid can treasure forever, consider a framed photo or a creative DIY shadow box.

7) Yoga Mats or Towels

If your bridesmaid is a fan of exercise and/or yoga, consider a personalised yoga mat complete with a personalised yoga mat bag.

Alternatively, a trendy personalised beach or bath towel is great whether in the bathroom or on the beach.

8) Plants or Flowers

Flowers are traditional gifts that are perfect for all occassions. As a bridesmaid gift, consider your bridesmaid’s favourite flowers or favourite colours (yellow is a colour often used to symbolise friendship), or go even deeper by looking at the meanings of flowers for something extra special. A gift of flowers can be anything from a bouquet to a potted plant, or some pretty flower cuttings in a decorative vase.

9) Food

Cakes, sweets, or other treats are lovely, affordable bridesmaid gifts that won’t break the bank (unless you want to go all-out with luxury chocolates or something). You may even want to create something homemade for that personal touch.

10) Drinks

Bottles of wine, champagne, or other favourite tipples (perhaps presented in a personalised wine bag, gift box, or stylish wooden caddy) are classic gift ideas for anyone who enjoys the good stuff. But your gift doesn’t have to be alcoholic—consider miniature hampers of tea or coffee, homemade smoothies, or bottles of soft drinks instead.

11) Money

Sometimes the most useful gift is a gift of cash, whether that’s money in-hand or a gift card to a favourite retailer. For extra brownie points however, present your cash or gift card to your bridesmaid in a beautiful card or envelope.

12) Experiences

It’s widely accepted that experiences make some of, if not the, most memorable gifts, so for all the hard work she’s done (or will do) for your wedding you may want to treat your bridesmaid with a short break at home or abroad, to a spa weekend, or a fun day out at an amusement park or some kind of arts-and-crafts course. Go together and make it even more special.
