They helped you find the dress. They threw you parties. And now they deserve a huge thank you. What better way to say it with a unique collection of things your girls can use before and after the wedding?
Take a look at these idea starters. Then put them into a beautiful box your bridesmaids can open at least two weeks before the wedding.
Jewelry by Local Artists
What girl doesn’t love jewelry? Check out your city market or local boutiques for handmade necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings. Then, pick out your favorite designs by local artists and surprise your bridesmaids. Not only will they love making a unique statement at your wedding, you’ll save her the stress of picking out her own accessories!
Bright, Sparkling Smiles
Let’s be honest, both brides and bridesmaids want to look their best on the big day, so give yours a little tip in a tube. Slip Luminous White® into their gift boxes. If they brush regularly for at least two weeks before the wedding, they’ll notice a difference in their smiles. Plus, it’s safe for everyday use and safe for enamel. Not only will you and your bridesmaids look great, you’ll have beautiful smiles to match.
Manicure in a Mug
Look for some plain, ceramic mugs and make the perfect statement piece for your DIY gift box. You can unleash your inner artist by drawing designs or writing personal messages on them. Be sure to use oil-based paint markers or glass paint markers to keep the mugs smudge-free. Make sure you tell your girls to hand-wash them only – putting them in the dishwasher may wash your masterpiece away.
After you’ve decorated your ceramic mugs, bake them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, and let them cool completely. Then, fill them with manicure essentials like a nail file, clippers, buffer, and Tom’s natural hand cream.
So Pretty Succulents
These eco-chic, budget friendly gifts are a perfect addition to your DIY box. Pick out a petite pot for each of your bridesmaids and purchase succulents and cactus soil at your local garden shop or nursery. Best of all, succulents are low-maintenance, making them perfect for your girls’ work desks or coffee tables. All these plants need is a little love, sun and water. No green thumbs required!
