As a bride with a never-ending to-do list, it's easy to get caught up in the vortex of wedding planning. But an important item on your list is taking a moment to thank your bridesmaids — the unsung heroes of your big day.
Between dress fittings and wedding day pee breaks, your bridesmaids are there through thick and thin. If you’re stumped on how to honour your best gals, we've rounded up unique bridesmaid gift ideas that your A-team will love — and likely make them teary-eyed.
1. Heart-Shaped Locket
Lockets are having a major moment right now. This heirloom locket by Madewell features a simple gold heart on a gold chain. One half of the locket has a mirror while the other side is left empty to add a picture of your choice. You can even personalize the gift and inscribe your bridesmaids’ initials on the heart to make it extra special.
2. Tie The Knot Bracelet
You want your bridesmaid gifts to be special, something that will remind them of your big day and the memories created together. This stunning ‘tie the knot’ bracelet features a silver or gold band with a knot at the center, and comes in a pretty box that says, “Thank you for helping us tie the knot.”
3. An Illustration
The women you ask to be a part of your wedding day have been through it all with you. There’s no better way to thank them than with a beautiful illustration of you and your bestie. Not only will a gift like this get your girls emotional but it doubles as beautiful artwork for their home or office. This stunning print is illustrated by Jamel Saliba — the perfect tear-jerker.
4. Jewellery Travel Case
A compact jewellery case is a must-have for any girl, so what better way to thank your bridesmaids than with a personalized travel bag. This petite travel jewellery case by Mark & Graham comes in different colours and gives you the option to monogram your bridesmaids’ names on the front. A gift like this is totally unique and perfect for the girl-on-the-go!
5. Jewellery Gift Set
A stunning piece of jewellery that can be worn on the wedding day and every day thereafter is both useful and a great way to remember your special day. Dainty studs or a gorgeous necklace are timeless pieces that your girls will adore and cherish for many years to come. Birch Jewellery has the best collection of earrings, necklaces and bracelets to choose for your girlfriends — and we gift wrap!
6. Bridesmaid gift box
In a pinch and don’t have time to shop around? This personalized gift-box by Box Fox is perfect for the busy bride. You can opt for a pre-packaged bridesmaid box or build your own with an array of beauty, food, beverage and home goodies. A personalized gift box like this one will help you honour your girls and thank them for all of their hard work.
These gifts will let your bridesmaids know just how much you appreciate them standing by your side as you say ‘I do’ and supporting you through your bridal journey. They don’t always need to be over-the-top gestures, just a small token of your gratitude will get the message across.
