As part of tradition, you should give out gifts to your bridesmaids either before or after your wedding. This tradition has long been practiced as a way of letting your bridesmaids know how thankful you are that they took part of such an important role in your wedding. Because it is a token of your appreciation, you should be careful in choosing the right gift to give your bridesmaids.
So how do you find the right gift for your bridesmaids? Here are some tips to remember:
Consider their interests
Because your bridesmaids are usually your friends, you already have an idea of who they are and what their interests are. A good gift to give them would be something that embodies their personality. If your friends are into reading, you can get them customized book bags they can store their books into when they travel.
Choose something functional
Another tip in finding the right gift for your bridesmaids is to go for something functional—this means that she can wear the item more than once. A good tip here would be matching robes that they can wear.
Get something that signifies your friendship
You may also go for a friendship band to help signify your bond with your bridesmaids. This way, you get to let them know how appreciative you are of their friendship with you.
As the bride, you can choose to give out similar gifts to each of your bridesmaids. This way, it can symbolize your wedding day and they will remember it forever. Make sure that when you give your bridesmaids a gift, you include a personalized thank you note. Find a gift that they will love and you’ll be happy you decided to!
