The Little Things: Gifts for the Bridesmaids

by Ryan Conner

Little-Things-ReSizedIt’s the little things that make your big day special. But sometimes it’s the little things that can be the most overwhelming. Krystin Sessions, intern for D Weddings, has the little things covered. She’s gathering ideas, products, and inspiration so that you can rest easy and enjoy the planning process from start to finish.

Bridesmaid gifts may be a big item to check off of your wedding checklist (especially for those of you with bridal parties stretching a mile long from the altar) but why not make that big item full of “the little things.”  Instead of deciding on a single gift to give your go-to gals, assemble a gift basket full of special trinkets. It’s heartfelt, personal, and thoughtful. Having a hard time coming up with a gift? I’ve come up with the perfect composition that covers all grounds of gift giving and will make your ‘maids say, “Aww, you shouldn’t have!”

  1. You can’t go wrong with gifting a pair of flats to prepare those bridesmaids for a night full of dancing after the ceremony. They (and their feet) will be singing you praises the next morning. This nude pair of Julianne Hough for Sole Society ballet flats with a gold tip will go great with any dress- and they can even wear them again! (Yes, yes, we say that all the time, but we mean it this time.) Find these flats in three colors for $49.95 at Nordstrom.
  1. My favorite candle! The Volcano candle by Capri Blue is legendary. Light it and add a clean scent of citrus to any room. Even the canister itself acts as a statement piece with its rich, deep blue hue. Anyone worthy of being your bridesmaid is worthy of a gift like this. Get the Capri Blue Volcano candle from Beaucoup Home.
  1. Hit your bridesmaids’ sweet spots with a dozen French macarons! These dainty treats from The Hospitality Sweet are sure to be a hit (I mean, who could say no to chocolate with a salted caramel layer or their traditional flavor with almond buttercream filling?) Forget about fitting in that bridesmaid dress- these are worth every calorie!
