4 Gift Ideas For Your Bridesmaids

Congratulations bride to be, you are one day closer to your walk down the aisle. No doubt you have been busy planning and prepping for your special day: finding the right dress, ordering your floral arrangements, sizing the rings and of course consulting with your best friend, the maid of honor, with every bridal decision you make. As you realize the bridal shower invitations have gone out and soon you will be whisked away for a day party or evening of fun with your bridesmaids and friends; so now is the time to coordinate the gifts for you to give your bridesmaids at your bridal shower. After the bridal cake, shower them with one of the four unique gift ideas below.

Decorative Votive Holders

Giving the gift of decorative votive holders is a guaranteed win for any female friend. There is something very elegant and feminine about candles. I have yet to meet a woman who didn’t enjoy burning her favorite scented candle while enjoying a hot bubble bath, romantic dinner or for that special lighting to get that special bedroom spark lit. While tapered candles make great dining pieces and jarred candles have magical scents, votive candles have an abundant variety of decorative holders that make for special and cherished gifts. Unlike candles that come in jars, once the candle has burned away, you do not throw votive holders out. Your bridesmaids will enjoy burning several of their favorite scented candles in their unique votive candle holders. Floral patterns are great décor to accompany a wedding.

Bath And Body Works

You can never go wrong with the right bath products. Shea soaps and body butters are always a welcomed addition to bath time. Lavender is a universally loved fragrance, as well as vanilla and rich honey. Be cautious of perfumes and dyes, as many people have allergies and sensitive skin. I would stick to shea and honey soaps, shampoos, and body butters to avoid sensitivities.

Hair Accessories

One great feature of the hair accessory gift idea, is that you can select the right piece to coordinate with your bridesmaids gowns and have them wear them in the wedding. You can choose a cute set of hairpins for adding just a touch of color and jewel to their hair, or you may opt for an elegant floral headband. Consider your bridesmaids hairstyles and dresses before making your choice.


Jewelry also features the same option of coordination with your bridesmaids gowns. Depending on the neckline of the dress, I suggest a necklace as being the best jewelry gift idea. Of course, if the dress has a collar, perhaps earrings or bracelets are a better gift. Regardless of your selected jewelry gift idea you can choose to gift each bridesmaid with the same piece for a uniformed accessorized look, or you can select a different color of each piece for a hint of uniqueness to each gal as she walks before you down the aisle.

Sure this is your special day, but don’t forget your bridesmaids and all the help and support they have given you in helping to plan and celebrate your day. Make sure they know how much you love them, with a unique bridesmaid gift to be given at your bridal shower.
