The people who make up your wedding party are the ones who have been there for you through thick and thin. They are your best friends, your family. Now they will be there for you on your big day, standing beside you while you exchange vows with your soon-to-be spouse. It’s important to show them your appreciation with a thoughtful bridesmaid’s or groomsman’s gift.
A meaningful gift will show your wedding party how much they mean to you. Keep in mind that you don’t have to get everyone the same thing! View some of our favorite gifts to give as a way to say “thank you for all you have done for us!”.
Creative Ideas for Bridesmaid Gifts
Not only will getting-ready outfits look great in your wedding photos, but they are something that your bridesmaids will actually use again. Some of our favorites include matching floral robes, pajamas, and tank top/short sets.
Staying hydrated is extremely important on your wedding day. Personalized tumblers will help your bridesmaids to get enough water, on your big day and on any other day!
A personalized compact is certainly useful – your big day and beyond. The perfect size to fit in your purse, a compact will allow your bridesmaids to check their makeup one final time before walking down the aisle.
Instant cameras are very trendy right now! Your bridesmaids will be able to capture every fun moment of your big day, and it’s a gift they are sure to use again.
A monogrammed clutch will allow your bridesmaids to carry around the essentials, while still looking stylish. Select something that goes with your color scheme so that the clutches look great with their bridesmaid dresses.
Who doesn’t love a good mimosa? You can buy an already made mimosa kit, including special sanding sugar, unique juices, and pretty champagne flutes, or you can make your own. Either way, a mimosa kit will make a great gift and keep the party going. You can even use these to have a yummy mimosa while you are getting ready before the wedding!
Especially if you give your bridesmaids these gifts beforehand, a tote bag will come in handy on the day of your wedding. Your bridesmaids will be able to pack everything they need to get ready, and they can also use these after the wedding.
You can purchase these already made or make your own. Get a pretty basket, and put things in it that lend to ultimate relaxation. This can include candles, bath bombs, face masks, and anything else you can think of that your bridesmaids can use to wind down after your big day.
Jewelry is always a nice gift. A lot of brides will select something that their bridesmaids can wear during the wedding but can also use for everyday wear.
Creative Ideas for Groomsman Gifts
Customized Bottle Openers
