5 Unique Bridesmaid Gift Ideas
There's a lot to love about wedding season, especially if you're the one walking down the aisle. And while this is one of the most exciting times of your life, it can also get a bit stressful amidst all the planning and prep work. Luckily, you have the help of your fabulous bridesmaids, who are ready to make sure your wedding and everything leading up to it goes as smoothly as possible. So whether you're looking for an extra special way to ask someone to be your bridesmaid or thank them after the fact, here are some budget-friendly wedding party gift ideas to make your loved ones feel appreciated.
The Bridesmaid's Box
This is the ideal bridesmaid gift because you can treat your girls to an assortment of goodies they love. Of course, if you want to keep this simple, you could always go the premade route and purchase bridesmaid gift boxes with the usual assortment of yummy smelling bath products. If you want a basket that is as unique as your bridesmaids, however, your best bet is to hand-select a few special items they will use and enjoy. A few things you may want to consider are personalized bridesmaid candles, tumblers, and champagne flutes.
If you want to blow them away, throw in a mini-ring light like a LITTIL Selfie Mini they can use to bring their selfies to life as they show off their wedding look on social media. If you really want to bring their selfie game to the next level, give them a LITTIL Selfie One, a slightly higher-end model they can throw in their clutch to illuminate any photos they take at the reception. With 60 high-powered LEDs, this tiny ring light provides three different light tones and ten different brightness settings to perfectly control the lighting in any setting - even those late-night dance floor shots!
A Personalized Box of Truffles
This may sound like more of a Valentine's Day gift, but before a big wedding, many bridesmaids are hitting the gym hard and skimping out on their favorite treats to look their best for the big day. That means they'll be ready to indulge in something tasty after the fact, so why not treat them to a gorgeous box of custom truffles in all their favorite flavors? It's a sweet, affordable way to add that personal touch to your gift. If you're looking for a good place to have some made, try browsing around on Etsy, where you can find some fantastic confection makers who will help you add the personal touches you desire. And best of all, you can support small businesses in the process, so everyone wins!
Raise a toast to your favorite gals with a bottle of bridesmaid bubbly. Many online winemakers offer custom labels (and even custom flavors if you want to go all out) so your gal pals can enjoy a splash with that personal touch that lets them know how much you appreciate them. And after months of wedding planning, dress shopping, and bridal showers, who wouldn't want to relax with a glass or two?
Every good team needs a uniform, so make sure you get your girls fitted in matching bridesmaid robes for the "getting ready" photos that capture the essence of your friendship as you all prepare for the big day.
If you're putting together some goodies for a bridesmaid proposal box, don't forget to add a sassy personalized t-shirt or tank top into the mix to let other people know the party has arrived when you and your bride squad walk in.
The Must-Have You Never Thought Of
Have you ever been to a wedding and, mid-way through the event, spotted multiple guests wandering around looking for a place to charge their phones? Eliminate that issue for your bridal party by giving them a portable device charger they can use to keep their phones charged as they snap photos and dance the night away, such as the LITTIL Volt. The bonus? The LITTIL Selfie Mini and LITTIL Selfie One can plug right into the same charger so your bridesmaids can stay looking divine in their photos no matter how late it gets.
You don't have to break your budget to let your bridesmaids know they are appreciated. All you need is a little love, a dash of creativity, and lots of panache!
