Wedding gift guide: what to buy your bridesmaid

Your wedding day is fast approaching and everything is almost ticked off the list, but you still haven’t figured out what to get your bridesmaids. They probably helped you with that to-do list, so you want to get them something special to show them how much they are loved and appreciated. There are so many different presents you can get for them, so we have selected four types of gift categories that could potentially help you find the perfect gift!

Something for the big day

Why not gift your bridesmaids something they can use on the day, like jewellery or a matching shade of lipstick? You could even go as functional as a compact mirror that's perfect for making sure everything is in order before the photos start. Here are a few things that may spark some gift buying:

Rest and relaxation

Treat your bridesmaids like the queens they are with a gift that will show them how much you appreciate them. Matching dressing gowns, slippers or even PJs are perfect for the night before or morning of the big day and will look great in photos. If the lead up to the wedding has been crazy to say to least, treat them with some bath bombs and a bottle of bubbles so they can relax and take in the excitement before the wedding bells ring. If you want to go all out, make a little bridesmaid box for them with a selection of these items:

Pre-day prep and pamper

A practical gift that will excite your bridesmaids is a day of wedding prep that involves a little pampering. Whether it’s a manicure, blow dry or facial a day or two before the wedding, it will have your bridesmaids feeling the love. If you want to surprise them, a gift card will be perfect for the occasion. Just estimate how much you are planning to spend on pampering and give them a gift card of that value so you're all ready to go on the day.

Something special

If you want to get them something unique and a bit different, here are some ideas that will help to get your creative juices flowing. From an instant camera to a weekender bag, these gifts can still be useful for the wedding weekend but won’t become redundant after the celebrations end.
