Best Bridesmaids Gifts and Maid of Honor Gifts to Show Your Appreciation
The epitome of grace (as well as pre-planning!) is for the bride to acknowledge her attendants. As some of the most important people in your life, your bridesmaids and maid of honor should be all showered with gifts, from the beautiful to the personal to the practical. Searching for the best bridesmaids gifts and maid of honor gifts to show your appreciation? Here are some of the bridesmaids gifts, I chose for my bridal party that I hope my friends still love long after my wedding day.
Bracelets and Special Maid of Honor Gifts
The maid of honor gifts were unique, as befitted her stature. The maid of honor’s special presents included the Kate Spade Maid of Honor Idiom Bangle, which says: “You and Me” on the inside. And on the outside, it says: “Hoity to your toity, the riff to your raff, the hocus to your pocus and the lovey to your dovey”. This memorable piece came from Nordstrom. She also received a gold candle from Home Goods.
The bridesmaids received their own bracelets. Theirs was the Kate Spade Bridesmaids Idiom Bangle, which says: “Best Friend Ever” on the inside. And on the outside, it says: “Birds of a feather, two of a kind, perfect pair, partners in crime, peas in a pod and sidekicks”. These distinctive pieces came from Macy’s.
The junior bridesmaid received a different bracelet. Hers was the Kate Spade Friendship Spirit Charm Bangle, which says: “I’ve always admired your great spirit, but the best thing about you is your solid gold heart. You’re the best friend a girl could ask for”. This beautiful piece came from Macy’s.
Mini Champagne Bottles
Of course the adults received mini Champagne bottles. These cute mini glittered champagne bottles came from Fab Events Details on Etsy, a global marketplace for creatives everywhere.
Because the junior bridesmaid was a little young for Champagne, she received Godiva hot chocolate instead.
All of the attendants also received a fantastic assortment of other gifts.
First up are Confetti Poppers from Etsy which say “I can’t say I Do Without You”. Inside, the Confetti Poppers contained that all-important question: “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” or “Will You Be My Maid of Honor?”.
The next gift was truly practical. We all know there can be those annoying little spills or accidents, even on the day of days. These terrific little kits from Sephora contain everything from a tissue to nail polish (and remover) to safety pins and needle and various colors of thread.
It was the fun and practical Pinch Provisions Minimergency® Kit For Bridesmaids in Pink/Gold Dot, because: “Accidents are bound to happen. Keep the wedding party going with this all-inclusive kit—chock-full of 21 mini must-haves to save your bestie’s big day………”
Sephora has hundreds of stores in the Americas and a lot of their best goods are available online. You can find some great ideas for best bridesmaids gifts and maid of honor gifts there. This little Minimergency kit can handle any emergency with aplomb, and the bag is perfect for long after the I Do’s! I always carry one of those on my travels.
All of the attendants also received Estee Lauder “Shine On” Pure Color Gloss, which transforms ordinary color and makes it extraordinary; and has the power to light up your face. These thoughtful gifts came from Macy’s.
Philosophy Fragrance & Nail Polish
All the girls also received a Mini Philosophy fragrance “Wishing you Grace & Love” and a Nail Polish Formula X Sparklers Love Chemistry and Formula X The Colors Blushing from Sephora.
My best bridesmaids gifts also included the Be Naughty Peppermint Twist Bubble Bath from Icing in pretty pink colors, to the right in the image below.
There were also gorgeous gold picture frames with printed wedding theme photos inside, from HomeGoods. The photograph showed the wedding colors of blush and rose gold and accentuated the stylistic theme of lace and glitter.
Then there was the 4 piece Signature Chocolate Truffles from Godiva, because you can never have enough chocolate. This sweet assortment includes a Dark Chocolate Truffle, a Hazelnut Crunch Truffle, a Milk Chocolate Truffle, and Salted Caramel Truffle. It’s just enough without going overboard.
More thoughtful and practical maid of honor gifts were these Planner Notes in Blush from Sugar Paper from Target. Everyone could stay organized – planning a wedding is a lot of detail work!
Of course gifts are not complete without accompanying cards. These pretty Will You Be My Bridesmaid; Will You Be My Flower Girl; Will You Be My Maid of Honor cards all came from Zazzle.
Boxes and Tissue Paper
And of course it all needs to be wrapped. The gorgeous boxes in pink with gold rim and the tissue paper in pink, polka dots, and white colors came from Target. The boxes were large and sturdy – they could be used again, to store keepsakes.
Putting It All Together
I was very happy with the final presentation of my best bridesmaids gifts and maid of honor gifts.
Let’s get some last looks at how pretty everything was – and how gorgeous those boxes were at the end!
