26 Bridesmaid Gifts for Your DIY Gift Box

The wedding formula is simple. You hold a beautiful ceremony and reception to commemorate your love. Your loved ones come to enjoy, celebrate at your side, and shower you with gifts to fill your future home.

                          18) Floral Compact

                          Naturally you won’t want to gift your bridesmaids an empty cosmetic bag - fill it up with treasures that are equally special. Compacts are so handy and a great way for her to remember your wedding in a simple way.

                            19) Travel Mani-Pedi Set

                              20) Lipstick

                                Your wedding day will be one of the best days of your life - it will also be one of the longest days of your life. Lipstick touch-ups are going to be inevitable. Give each of your bridesmaids a flattering shade of lipstick to keep them looking great all day long.

                                  Your bridesmaids will have a cohesive look - why not have them have a cohesive scent too? Buy rollerball or travel sizes of a scent you love to include in your bridesmaids’ gift box. DAISY by Marc Jacobs is a classic.

                                  22) Sephora Gift Card

                                    Let her fill the rest of that cosmetic bag the way she wants to. Give her the gift of makeup AND the gift of shopping with a Sephora gift card!

                                    23) Candle

                                      Who doesn’t love candles? Give each of your bridesmaids a cute mason jar candle with their initial on them.

                                          So unexpected and fun! Have an expert artist sketch your group of bridesmaids, then give each of your friends a copy. You can choose to have them sketched in their bridesmaids dresses, or in outfits that match their personality. Even the background is customizable!

                                          26) A truly heartfelt note

                                            No gift can tell your bridesmaids how much they mean to you better than you can. Take the time to write each of your bridesmaids a personal, genuine thank-you note. Tell them how much they mean to you and how grateful you are to have them in their wedding. Knowing that you truly care will make the fun gifts mean even more.
