One of my most popular posts is the one where I shared bridesmaids gifts ideas before my own wedding. I’ve gotten a few requests to share what I actually gave to my girls, so I finally have gotten around to sharing what I picked out in the end. Basically, these were the top things on the list of personalized gifts that I had found while shopping around.
Bridesmaids gifts are so hard to pick out, and I wanted to make everything personalized. I wanted it to be done in their favorite colors so they would actually use the items. I asked them ahead of time what their favorite color combinations were, because I wanted to make sure my thoughts were correct.
Reason for each of the bridesmaids gifts that I picked
I have more plastic tumblers than one person should own, and I wanted to share that love with my girls. I thought these multi-colored ones were cute, and I loved that they came with a little matching bow. I bought myself one as well, as I did with all of my gifts. Since it’s so hard to pick stuff out, I knew that if I loved it then it at least meant that I put time and thought into picking it out.
The makeup bags were probably my favorite. I bought them a large and a medium sized one that would be perfect for packing their stuff to bring to get ready the next day. Then they could use them for overnights and short trips in the future.
The earrings were what I wanted them to wear for the wedding, and they matched the look I was going for perfectly. I figured if I was going to be specific on jewelry then I should provide it.
And lastly, notepads. Each of these notepads was personalized in the wedding colors and had a magnet on the back. They are the long kind that you can hang on your refrigerator for grocery lists and quick thoughts. I’m a big lover of lists, and I knew that all of my bridesmaids are as well.
I had so much fun picking these items out, and I think my combination of loving the items myself and thinking of ways to make the items unique for each girl helped make my gifts special.
This post is a bit late, as I got married July 21st of last year, but I did want to share with you what I ended up getting.
What’s your favorite gift you’ve ever received?
