Yes, it's that time of year again, and brides everywhere are racking their brains for beautiful and stylish bridesmaid gift ideas to treat their girls to post-nuptials.
Ladies, it's ok. We understand you have a LOT on your plate - let us take some of the hassle out of that gifting process. Take a look at some of these gift ideas, for the uber-stylish bridesmaid...
Buying your bridesmaids jewellery isn't necessarily a new idea, however with so many lovely scandi-inspired jewellery brands on the market right now, there has never been a better time to shop. British designers such as Rebecca Gladstone create simple and swoons-worthy pieces that are both stylish and unusual, and with prices starting from around £22 for a pair of gold plated earrings, you won't be breaking the bank either. Happy days.
Okay, personalised undies/robes are trés cute however, we like the idea that you are treating your bridesmaid to something she wouldn't immediately buy herself - luxury sleepwear definitely falls into this category. Ladies of all styles, shapes and sizes would appreciate a nice slip, chemise or nightshirt to make them feel extra special when chilling out at home. High street heroes such as Topshop and Gap always offer nice sleep sets, however for ultimate luxe gifting you need look no further than Net-A-Porter. We're especially loving this Skin cotton-gauze chemise (£65).
A luxury candle is definitely a splurge-worthy bridesmaid gift, and perfect for the bride that has to gift bridesmaids outside of her own family. Votive faves Jo Malone and Diptyque are always a great option, especially when the packaging is SO darn pretty. Our pick? This 34 Blvd St. Germain scented candle from Diptique (£50).
4. Something personal
Okay we know we said 'avoid monogramming', but when items are this gorgeous then we can allow for a smidge of the personalised. With so many online retailers offer monogrammed accessories these days, getting something like a bright leather coin purse, or cosmetic bag stamped with your girl squad's inititals is a cute yet luxe option. Plus, it will serve as a poignant keepsake from the day. Aspinal of London offer a monogramming service on most of their goods from £25 per line. We think this handy handbag tidy (£65) would make the perfect gift.
We totally know that buying make-up for your bridesmaids can be risky, as cosmetics are a very personal thing - however Benefit have been championing fun and innovative compacts for a long time now, and they always have something great to offer in the gift department. Their 'Cheekathon' blush kit (£44.50) is perfect for ladies who love a bit of flush, and will fit comfortably inside a handbag or gym kit.
