Giving your bridesmaids a thank you gift is a great way to show your appreciation. After all, your bridesmaids have been by your side through thick and thin, and now one of your biggest days yet. They’ve lent a hand and volunteered their time at your bridal shower, bachelorette party, and rehearsal dinner, not to mention a thousand other things a long the way. A small token of gratitude is the least you can do to show them how much you appreciate their hard work and how special they are to you. But how do you find a gift that will make everyone happy? Here’s how to make it work.
How to Choose a Bridesmaids Gift
Choosing a bridesmaid gift doesn’t have to be complicated and certainly doesn’t have to be expensive. There are a ton of options that are reasonably priced and will make a big impact. First, you’ll have to choose the type of gift you’re going for. You can choose a sentimental and meaningful gift, such as a personalized portrait of the two of you or a bangle with a sweet and sentimental poem about friendship. Or, you can choose a practical gift that your gal pals can wear at the wedding and beyond, such as fun accessories or a personalized clutch that matches their bridesmaids dresses.
Alternatively, get them a gift they can use to unwind from the wedding stress once it’s over, such as a spa gift that’s pack with lotion and body soak, or a delectable food gift they can enjoy long after the big day is over. Whatever gift you choose, be sure to include a personalized note for your loved one detailing all the things you’re grateful for. She’ll feel special, cared for, and, most importantly, appreciated.
