Giving Bridesmaid Gifts is an etiquette that has been followed for centuries. There is no right or wrong time for you to give these gifts to your bridesmaids. It's not like you can get away with just anything because you've chosen them to be your maid of honor. So when do you give gifts to your attendants?
One of the most classic forms of bridesmaid gifts is the bridesmaid gift basket. They are very easy to make. You can either purchase one already put together or you can make it yourself. Either way, you'll need bridesmaid jewelry boxes, handbags, shirts, robes or any other bridesmaid gift basket item that your attendants would probably use. Typically you'll give them one for their regular business wear, one for wearing on the day of the wedding, and one for wearing after the wedding. The tote bag is optional, but it will make a great finishing touch to the gift basket.
Another option for bridesmaid gifts is giving them unusual gifts that may be more fun than a traditional present. One unusual item is an engraved tote bag. This is a pretty cute item that can be given to any female attendant. Engraved bags can be very expensive, so this is an inexpensive alternative if you don't want to spend a whole lot of money. It's a great way to add a personal touch to your bridal shower.
Shirts, robes and socks are also popular small bridesmaid gifts for your wedding party. They are inexpensive and they go right along with any kind of bridal party gift bag. Sometimes when a bride has a themed wedding, she might want to give out things in the same theme as the bridal party. For instance, a winter theme might give you something like winter clothes or winter hats. These kinds of small gifts go right along with Winter Wonderland wedding themes.
Thank-You Notes can be personalized with anything you'd like. Many times the girls will receive something that they can use at the wedding such as a personalized tote bag. However, they often don't have to take this item home with them when they leave the wedding. If this is the case, then your best bet would be to make your own custom thank-you note for the team members.
You can get your girls team members a few little something unique to wear at the wedding, especially if you have some athletic friends in the group. Crystal hairpins are inexpensive bridesmaid gifts for the girls. Or, perhaps your friend has an active girl's soccer team and would like to give each of them a custom uniform. Any kind of sportswear or jersey would work - even a simple plain shirt or t-shirt. Most of the time, the shirts come in team colors and the pants come in either stripes or logos for the sports team.
When it comes to bridesmaid gifts, there are so many different types to choose from. The good news is, most of the gifts you choose will match your bridal gown and other wedding jewelry, thereby giving the girls something to brag about on their new wedding day. However, you should take into account the personality of the girls before choosing gifts. There are so many cute and unique gifts to choose, but only a few that will fit their personality and match their personalities.
For example, if your friend is an avid fisherman, you might consider getting her a monogrammed personalized fishing boat key chain. Another great personalized gift idea would be a personalized golf club.
