Bridesmaid Gifts – Something Different

Your bridesmaids are your support system throughout this special and hectic time in your life. You choose them for many different reasons, but the one thing they all have in common is that they are very precious friends. After all the time and energy they put into helping you, how do you thank these fantastic ladies?


Don't be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to your bridesmaid gifts. Take some time to just be with the girls and enjoy their company! How about throwing a pyjama party and giving each girl a new set of cozy pj's? Or spend a day out at the spa with them. A lot of spas will offer a group rate, so help them look their best with a pedicure or manicure. If you want to pamper them without the spa, give each girl a gift basket of bath and body products. You can tailor each basket to each girl, and the sensual scents will be sure to please.


Tea and tea parties are a huge trend. Put together a tea set for each girl with a loose leaf wand, personalized tea cup and some of her favourite flavours. If you have some wine connoisseurs in your party, try getting them a bottle of wine and a cute corkscrew. Is your bridal party full of super chic girls? An adorable clutch purse with her favourite shade of lipstick will be a big hit.

Whatever you decide to give, make sure it lets your girls know just how much they mean to you and how much you appreciate all of their hard work. Don't forget to write a little personalized note to go with each bridesmaid gift.
