Posted on by Nathaniel Dalby

From helping you to choose a beautiful dress to throwing you one huge exciting party for your hen-do, your beloved bridesmaids will be right by your side throughout every stage of your wedding.

A bridal gift is a brilliant way to show each of your bridesmaids how much you care for them and to thank them for supporting you every step of the way.

Check out our great guide below for 10 brilliant bridesmaid gift suggestions that are sure to be a hit with your group and won’t break the bank.

1) Jewellery

Jewellery is such a brilliant option for a bridal party gift because it’s just so versatile. There’s a huge selection of timeless pieces for under £20 from luxury online retailers like Boho Betty to suit each one of your bridesmaids’ individual tastes.

For example, the delicately handwoven Sculler Pearl White Seed Bead and Silver Hematite Bracelet is perfect for any bridesmaid wanting to keep things simple but sophisticated with a lovely statement piece, whilst the bright crystal and smokey quartz of the vibrant Freezing Man Purple Beaded Bracelet is great for the life and soul of the party.

You could also opt to match your bridesmaids’ jewellery to the theme of your wedding or to create a pleasing visual effect by giving them all the same kind of jewellery, for which a stunning contemporary piece like these elegant Bellucci rose gold earrings would be ideal.

2) The latest best-seller or a book that mean a lot to you

It might sound a bit unusual, but a book can make a fantastic gift for your bridesmaids.
If you can think of one in particular that you really enjoyed, maybe because it taught you something valuable about yourself or maybe just because it really made you laugh, write a small affectionate personalised inscription inside to each bridesmaid so they can experience that happiness too.

Alternatively, you could choose one of the latest best-sellers like Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies (recently adapted into a successful mini-series starring Reese Witherspoon) or a chick-lit classic like Bridget Jones’s Diary for pure entertainment value.

Sometimes, its the simplest gifts that say it the best. A lovely framed photo of you and all your bridesmaids is all you need to show them how much they mean to you.

This is a great option for all you creative types out there because there’s so many different ways you can approach it. Pick a frame that’s got space for one photo or one that’s got space for many, create a fun collage, get your photo printed onto a small canvas or if you’re feeling extra crafty, why not make the frame yourself?
