We’d just like to take a minute to appreciate the bridesmaids of the world… because let’s be honest, they totally rock. While you’re planning your wedding and setting up for the big day, your bridesmaids will become an invaluable asset. They will be a shoulder to cry on, they will get just as excited as you are, and they are there to organise the hen (the most important part of any wedding, right?). Yep, planning a wedding will bring you even closer to your bridesmaids, and you’ll soon appreciate everything they do for you. You’ll almost be more in love with your bridesmaids than you will your new husband or wife. True story. So, show your appreciation with purse-friendly gifts to buy your bridesmaids!
Is there anything better than receiving a gift basket? We’re gonna go ahead and answer that one for you… no! A bridesmaid gift basket is one of the best purse-friendly gifts to buy your bridesmaids because they look as though you have paid a fortune for them, but in reality, they may have only cost you around £20. Placing smaller items such as soaps, lip balms, face masks, earrings and more into a basket of your choice is the best way to say “treat yo’ self” to your bridesmaid but “budget yo’ self” to yourself.
If you want to truly spoil your bridesmaids on a budget, we’d always suggest jewellery. Because who doesn’t love jewellery? Whether you choose to give your bridesmaids earrings, necklaces, or bracelets, you can choose something that reflects your wedding day. There are numerous companies and brands that cater for bridesmaid jewellery. Want to know our face? A little gold or silver bangle with a knot on it – to thank your bridesmaids for helping the happy couple tie the knot.
Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you have to scrimp on the thoughtfulness of your bridesmaid gifts. If you’re looking to treat your bridesmaids without breaking the bank, why not give them a framed photograph? You can pick up lovely frames from any supermarket or home store near you, and it costs pennies to print off a photograph! Either fill it will one of your favourite photos of the pair of you, or wait until after the wedding to give them one of the pair of you on your big day.
You want your bridesmaids to carry a little piece of your wedding around with them for the rest of their lives, so it makes sense to buy them a personalised mirror. Compact mirrors can be bought across the country in various different shops, but you can also buy them online from shops such as notonthehighstreet.com and Etsy.com where they are engraved before they are sent to you. This way, you can get everything done at worse and save yourself some money!
Okay, so giving your bridesmaids a coat hanger may not seem like the most exciting gift on the planet – but trust us with this one! On the big day itself, the bridesmaid’s dresses will need to be hung up to avoid any creases or stains. However, you can’t just hang them on any old thing! Buying personalised hangers is one of the best ways to add a little special touch to your day, and brighten the days of your bridesmaids. The ladies can then take the hanger home with them and always remember your big day. Of course, you can buy these personalised hangers online, but you could also DIY them yourself! Grab yourself some lovely white hangers and get your calligraphy hand ready, and you could save yourself a fortune.
It’s always a lovely little touch to give your bridesmaids gifts on your wedding day, but these gifts don’t have to break the bank. In fact, you can buy so many purse-friendly bridesmaids gifts you’ll struggle just to pick one!
Well, hi there! Thanks for dropping by, earthlings. While I am a writer by trade I like to pride myself on my other quirks. I can rap all of the lyrics to Kanye West’s ‘Homecoming,’ I can eat a whole packet of Oreos in record time, and I can lick my elbow. Oh, I’m also a stickler for luuuuuurve…
