Bridesmaid Gifts, inspiration needed

(7 Posts)

I am getting married in 7 weeks and we have planned everything on a budget and except the dress we are coming in or under budget.

All thats left now if bridesmaid gifts, I have 3 good friends plus my sister, with whom I'm not particularly close to.

Any way the budget is £25 each, I can't seem to find any jewellery i like for this budget to give them. I then look at personalised things and can't help but think they are just a bit naff and probably not needed or wanted.
My other idea was flowers but they will keep their bouquets and if i was to buy flowers they would just die within a few days.

HELP!!! Any ideas would be gratefully received

If you're thinking flowers, do they have gardens? You could give them each a rose plant that has an appropriate name, something to remember the day with?

Have a look on Etsy. Lots of ideas there smile

Nothing grabbed me on Etsy, plant for the garden is a lovely idea, only applies to 2 of them though sad

I had a photograph frame personalised/engraved with names, dates, thank yous etc and put a photo from the wedding in afterwards.

And got bracelets (pearl style) with personalised tags on i.e. chief bridesmaid etc. This was worn on the day and looked beautiful! And same for glass charms for toasts at tables.

There are lots of options, I know how difficult it can be to make decisions.

Good luck

I got my bridesmaid the Chanel lipstick that the makeup artist used at our trial (she loved it), and a silver pearl bracelet (made by a company called Magnolia- might be worth a look, though I think the one I bought was about £30).

RaeSkywalker just looked on the Magnolia sight and I like the pearl bracelets, would you say the quality was good?
Thanks x
