Traditionally at a wedding bridesmaids are given a thank you gift from the bride for being a part of their day and for their help. I have four amazing bridesmaids who I cannot wait to see all dressed up and have spent a lot of time plotting what I could get them! I'm not going to share what I've gotten them but I will share some of my ideas to help you come up with quirkier ideas for your friends.
My bridesmaids are all women, so what I'm sharing here is for women, but I do plan to make a groomsmen gift guide too. Of course your bridesmaids and groomsmen don't have to be their traditional gender, so if you have female groomsmen hopefully this will help you too! I'm not a big fan of gifts that have something totally wedding related on them, or that have bridesmaid on them, as I wanted my bridesmaids to be able to use their gifts after the wedding as much as possible.
If your bridesmaids like a cheeky drink, these adorable Skinnydip hip flasks from ASOS are just perfect! Glittery, holographic, available in a variety of adorable designs. I kind of want one and I don't even really drink.
How fun is this? Most women need a bag at a wedding and your bridesmaids are no different, so a fab sequined clutch that is also personalised is a wonderful touch. You could get a lyric from you and your bestie's favourite song on the tag so she is forced to think of you whenever she uses the bag! Perfect if you want a gift they can use on the day and afterwards.
I love the idea of a personalised gift, maybe you and your bridesmaids have an in-joke you could get stamped on these lush silver bracelets, or there is a life affirmation you love to help remind your bridesmaids that they are bad ass babes. They can wear these on the day, and any day after.
Sugar & Vice has a whole collection of personalised jewellery available, but their name necklaces are a classic I love. You could get different styles and colour to suit each of your bridesmaids, or match them all together. These look awesome with a tea dress so could easily be worn on the day too!
What did you get your bridesmaids? I really hope mine like their presents!
