When planning a wedding there is no shortage of planning and details to be worked out. Staying organised and on top of things will ensure that nothing gets forgotten about and that each “to-do” item is treated with care. One task you’ll want to add to that to-do list is to purchase gifts for your wedding party. This is an opportunity to show thanks and appreciation to them for being part of your special day. If you’re struggling to come up with gift ideas, here are five fun and unique wedding party ideas that could work for you.
Makeup Bag Filled with Goodies
For the bridesmaids, a cute idea can be a makeup bag filled with goodies they can use on the day of the wedding. This can include such things as nail polish, blotting papers or pressed powder, lip gloss, a compact mirror, lipstick, mints, safety pins, a stain remover pen, and even a portable phone charger. You can customize each bag for the individual bridesmaid or make all bags the same.
Fun-Themed Socks for All
Another cute and unique idea is to purchase socks for everyone in the wedding party but look for ones that either work with the wedding theme or that represent the person the socks are meant for. Funatic Socks has all types of themed socks. Shop online and you’ll find a wide array of styles, prints, and themes to choose from. You may even want to grab a couple of pairs for each wedding party member.
Wine Glasses or Champagne Flutes
Here’s an item that can work for the guys and girls in the wedding party and that’s a set of wine glasses or champagne flutes. If you’d rather take a more casual approach, opt for beer steins instead. The great thing about this item is that you don’t have to worry about matching to a particular décor or color, and everyone tends to appreciate a new set of glasses.
This particular gift tends to be more of a groomsmen gift, but can be unisex if you like. A personalized flask with the person’s name or initials etched on it will not only be appreciated but will be a gift they keep and use for many years to come.
Luggage – Individual Pieces or a Full Set
Now if you want to go all out and spend a bit more on your wedding party gifts, luggage can be a great idea. Whether you pick one piece such as a carry-on bag, or you go with a whole matching set, again it’s the kind of gift that is unisex and that everyone can make use of. If you’re holding a destination wedding, this can be the perfect item to gift them with in advance so they can use it for the actual wedding.
Put a Smile on Their Faces
No matter which of the gifts you pick on this list, you’re sure to put a smile on the face of your bridal party and show them just how much they are appreciated.
