DIY DAY: BRIDESMAID GIFT BOX
Looking for a unique and affordable way to thank your bridesmaids for helping to make your wedding so special? Sometimes you’ve got a long list of maids and a small budget to spend on them. You still want to make them feel loved and appreciated for standing by your side for so long. This unique bridesmaid gift box has all sorts of goodies to spark some savvy creative juices as you select your own items for your bridesmaids’ gift boxes!
1. Potted Plant
Who doesn’t love a sweet little succulent to brighten their day? They are low maintenance and a delightful reminder of your wedding day that your bridesmaid will be able to have on display. – $2.99, Ikea
2. Wine Tasting Gift Card
If you’re getting married here in midwest’s wine country, we highly suggest getting a 12 Corners gift card for your bridesmaids. Getting a gift card to one of your favorite spots in the town your getting married in is a great opportunity for your friends and family to explore the area on wedding weekend! – $10 is typically good for two tastings
Find tester bottles of your favorite scents for your bridesmaids to wear on the big day and let them mix and match when they open them. These cuties are free but last a couple of weeks!
** Another fun tester perfume idea: Choose a new scent for you to wear on your wedding day, and don’t wear it again until your anniversaries. Research has shown the smell of something brings back strong memories and can elicit emotional responses from when you previously smelled them.
4. Nail Polish or Lip Gloss
Find a fun color for your bridesmaids to wear on your wedding day or choose different lip gloss options for them. What girl doesn’t love an extra shade to choose from? – $3-$15
5. Personalize it
Add each girl’s name to the box and a photo of the two of you. This is an easy (and free!) way to personalize your gift to each girl.
6. Add a Sweet Treat!
Get a big bag of yummy chocolates and disperse them in your bridesmaids’ boxes. You could take this one to the local level and find a chocolate shop in the town you’re getting married in and include a truffle or two. Check out Purely Michigan or South Bend Chocolate Cafe in St. Joseph if you’re getting married in our neck of the woods! – $1-$3
There you have it, a bridesmaid gift for under $20! We would love to hear some of your ideas for a bridesmaid box!
Happy planning, you creative cats!
