Your wedding isn’t all about the bride (or at least you can’t openly admit that it is). It is also about the friends who are going to force you to wear a cheesy veiled tiara at your bachelorette party, will listen as you complain about your soon-to-be mother-in-law, and the people who will hold your wedding dress while you walk in the grass: your bridesmaids.
When it comes to giving your bridesmaids a thank you gift, it can sometimes be tricky. You will want it to be sincere and thoughtful; applicable to all of the girls, but still not overly generic.
Give your girls something special when you pop the question, or pamper them after the big day is done. Here, we have rounded up a few ideas for you.
Live by “quality over quantity” by gifting a personalized, yet minimal piece of jewelry. Iconery carries a horizontal bar necklace that can be engraved with anything that you like. Maybe you and your girl have a memorable date or special word that you want to memorialize on the necklace; or maybe, it is as simple as her name. If you are looking for a bracelet option, Iconery’s Letter Bracelet would make a beautiful present. It is available in yellow, white, and rose gold, and offers one letter charm of your choosing. It’s perfect for even your classiest of friends. Want to take it one step further? The Name It Ring by Ariel Gordon is the Lamborghini of personalized jewelry, and is a gift to last a lifetime.
Ask each friend to be a bridesmaid by sending her a fresh bouquet. The Bouqs Company flowers ship directly from the farm, meaning your recipient can enjoy their sustainable blooms for longer (no wasted days sitting in a shop or warehouse!) Our favorite Bouq for the occasion? Precious. The pink garden roses are full and feminine, arriving in buds and blooming into large fragrant roses. Or, check out the full collection of farm-direct flowers, as there are many wonderful Bouqs to choose from.
After the stressful weeks leading up to your wedding, your bridesmaids will certainly deserve some R&R. Send a licensed massage therapist right to their door with Zeel. With a gift card, she will be able to book a massage and have a masseuse there within an hour. #LuxeLife.
The likelihood of a pajama party with your bridesmaids taking place during your wedding festivities is high. And is there anything cuter than a bunch of friends in matching PJ’s? Queue Desmond & Dempsey, which carries adorable cotton sets like the Bocas Print Set. Feeling like an extra splurge? D&D will monogram the sets for you and your girls!
Gift the gift of regularly scheduled Bouqs deliveries with a subscription. With this gift, you can thank them all year long with fresh blooms, and all you have to do is simply set it up once. Even better, purchasing a subscription can save you up to 25% off each order. The flowers can arrive as frequently as you would like. We recommend one Bouq per month so that your bridesmaids can have seasonal flowers throughout the year.
Even in summer, the nights cool off quite a bit. Make sure your bridesmaids are not cold in their dresses, by giving them each a light summer shawl to wear at the reception. BHLDN’s Carlotta Wrap comes in a plethora of pastel colors, and is easy to throw over the shoulders.
Your wedding is likely to be a long day for your bridesmaids. Gift each girl a little roll-on perfume so that they can feel fresh and flowery even during the high paced moments. Diptyque’s Eau de Lavande has nodes of lavender, coriander, and cinnamon, perfect for the summer. Another light floral scent that we love is Le Labo’s Jasmin 17; ideal for a breezy spring day.
