Say Thanks to your Dream team: Top 10 Heartfelt Bridesmaid Gifts
Mrs P and P
From friendships formed in childhood, to more recent alliances and family connections, your ladies are with you through thick and thin, the good and the bad times. When choosing those that stand with you on your Wedding Day you need those that make you truly happy, that make you feel amazing and strong, and that truly have your back.
Each one will bring their own individual talents and merits whether that is a creative or supportive role, but as a collective they are your Dream Team, your best girls, your very own Charlie’s Angels so to speak. So when it comes to saying Thank you, sometimes one gift doesn’t really fit all.
It is lovely to gift them with something as individual or as special as they are.
Gifts that you could consider are…
1. A Wish Jar
If you are a creative Bride, a wonderful and inexpensive DIY is to purchase a pretty or colourful jar, and inside leave uplifting quotes or write notes saying how special their friendship is to you.
2. Have a rose or a star named after them
Your friendship has grown like a rose and how lovely would it be for them to think of you when looking at their own rose blossoming in their garden. Similarly they would go to the moon and stars for you, as you would for them so it would be perfect for them to have their own tiny piece of the universe by having a star named after them.
3. Make up a Photo book or album
A great way to remember all the fun times you have had is to bring them together in a photobook or album as a picture can tell a thousand words. Memories are made in moments in your life and whether your album is DIY or professionally made it is lovely to be able to remember those memories fondly.
Example: Friendship Book from Amanda Hancocks
4. Personalised Mirror or Compact
All girls like to look good, and when we are off out we like to check we scrub up ok. A personalised mirror or compact is perfect for those lippy touch ups when we have to dash to an important meeting or are off to meet that special someone.
Example – Mirror from Snapdragononline (as in picture above)
5. Friendship Box
This is another DIY idea and thoughtful gift. You could buy a pretty box and fill with lovely things your friends would like.
This could include a good book, a scented candle, chocolate, their favourite wine, a wedding essentials day kit, or jewellery.
6. An Afternoon Tea
There is something really special about an afternoon Tea. I think it harks back to the tea parties of yesteryear and it just exudes grown up glamour. Tiny finger sandwiches and scrumptious cakes as well as time to really catch up, and spend time together can be precious.
A poem can be the perfect way to really express what you feel about someone, as words do really matter. If you are not the poetic type then have a professional take your thoughts and create something amazing.
Example – Amy at I want a Poem comes highly recommended
8. Personalised Stationery
We all like to give, and also receive paper pretty so a really lovely gift is personalised stationery. In the digital age and with the advent of social media, the art of writing can become forgotten but its still special to receive a handwritten letter.
Example – Hip Hip Hooray
9. The multifunctional gift
A colourful robe makes getting ready stylish on the Wedding morning, and after the day is past.
Example – Robe from Jumping Bunny
10. Framed Illustration
An original illustration is both a beautiful way to display a heartfelt handwritten verse of affection for someone playing such an important role in your day.
Example – Alfie Winn Designs
These are just a few thoughts, and you know the ones you care about the best, and their likes and dislikes.
Your gift doesn’t have to be expensive, it is the sentiment behind it that matters… Whatever you choose it is sure to be special, and from your heart!
