The importance of gifts for bridesmaids

Why is it so important to find the right gifts for bridesmaids? Because they are so important for every bride!

They are usually chosen among the dearest friends and/or among the closest girls in the family (sisters, cousins); they are the bride’s confidants and they share all her feelings of joy and excitement.

They help the bride to solve practical problems in the organization of the wedding, but also support her in moments of doubt and anxiety.

For all these reasons, their presence is really precious and it is nice to acknowledge that with a personalized gift.

So we have selected some great ideas to help you find inspirations and suggestions.

What’s the right moment to give them the gifts? Two ideas for you

You could prepare original gifts for bridesmaids when it’s the moment to ask your chosen friend to become one of them.

For example by giving her a beautiful accessory customized with a message containing your request!

Or, instead, you can choose to give your bridesmaids their gifts just before your wedding day, for example as a surprise present they will find in their hotel rooms at their arrival (that’s a very good idea if you’re having a destination wedding).

Five inspirations for great gifts!

Whether you decide to give your presents when you ask them to be your bridesmaids or just before the wedding day, here are five suggestions to help you find the right presents for your girls.

If you want, you can also decide to prepare both kinds of gifts, if you want to show them how their presence is important to you and how much you appreciate their help during the preparations.

1. Emergency kit

Not only brides need an emergency kit: bridesmaids need it too! Why don’t you give them each a nice beauty case containing useful items and travel pack accessories? They would love it!
