BRIDE TO BE

The Top 10 Bridesmaid Gift Ideas

No one expects a gift from the bride to be, especially at a time as stressful as a wedding! But we know that some brides love to spoil their favourite girls – from gift boxes asking friends to be their bridesmaids, supplying dresses, shoes or makeup, and even a little favour for when the day is done, it can be nice to say “thanks for being there for me”. A few gifts don’t fit into every wedding budget, but for the brides’ thinking of getting their squad a gift, we’ve compiled a list of our ten favourite ideas right here for you (yes, one less thing to think about).

1.      Pamper Pack

We love the idea of a bath bomb, an eye mask and a bottle of wine. We know this group is highly appreciated by most types of girl squads!

2.      Keepsake Bangle

A bangle with the date of your Hens’ night engraved is a super cute idea. For some of the girls, it may have been the first night they met and formed a friendship. Most of all, the Hen’s party one of the only parts of the wedding where you all get together and let your hair down, and it’s really a time that celebrates the bond you all share.

3.      Gift Vouchers

A voucher for a spa day where you can all go together is SUPER cute, or you can get everyone a voucher for their own favourite store to make sure every gift has its own personal touch.

4.      Wine

Yup, forget the pamper pack actually – go all out on the girls’ favourite sparkling (and maybe organise a date where you can all polish it off together).

5.      Books

Hear me out. Maybe each girl has a topic she feels strongly about, or a celebrity they admire. Grab an informative book (paleo simplified?) or an autobiography (although, I don’t think Jason Mamoa has one yet). It shows you know their interests and gives them something they can keep and enjoy.

6.      Robes

A fluffy, comfy bath robe never goes unappreciated. You can even get the personalised with their names if you’re looking to spend a little extra!

7.      Foodie Gift Set

Chocolates, pretzels, maybe a craft beer. If your girls have a favourite snack, get creative and add it to a gift box! Bite size cherry ripes, Turkish delights and even Freddo frogs fit well when glued on Popsicle sticks to create a bouquet effect.

8.      Framed Photo

If you got a cute snap from your Hen’s party, print it out and frame it up! This is a perfect idea for brides on a budget and still has the same sentimental impact as a more expensive gift – if not more!

9.      Sampler Box

A sampler box of perfumes, wines, candles, cocktails or sauces is a super cute idea. It can be used or kept, and has a variety of products that someone is bound to love! It’s also a unique gift idea that looks like a lot more gifts inside.

10.  Do it Again!

Why not celebrate your bond by doing it all over again? You can book a sparkly party for any occasion – and we’d love to host your Sydney Hen’s Party round TWO!
