14 gift ideas for your wedding party

28 Jun 2017

From the parents of the bride to the best man, here are some gift ideas with which to say 'thank you' 

If you're struggling for inspiration with what to get those guests who had a big part to play in your wedding day, here is some food for thought to get the creative juices flowing.

Your parents or grandparents

They may have helped to fund your wedding or even offered unwavering support throughout the planning process, so parents and/or grandparents are one of the top priorities to thank. Whether you're looking for individual presents or gifts that can be shared, there are a number of options to suit their personality.

Fine wine

You don't have to be a wine connoisseur to find a bottle that will go down well. Marks &Spencer has launched its first ‘en primeur’ wine range; an exclusive range of fine wines from Bordeaux, priced from £26 to £420. Buy online and receive a presentation wooden case or single bottle box.



If bubbles are their preferred tipple, how about a classic bottle of Moët which can even be personalised to suit the occasion? 


Personalised sign

This wooden hanging heart from Pure Essence Greetings on Etsy can be customised with a poem or heartfelt words to create a beautiful keepsake for years to come. 


A year of art

Are your elder relatives lovers of art? The National Art Pass provides free entry to more than 240 museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, as well as 50% off entry to major exhibitions. The National Art Pass with Plus One is £100 for a year’s membership.


The bridesmaids

Honour your maids with these sentimental (and spangly) ideas.

Engraved jewellery

If you’re looking for a special way to thank your bridesmaids, this chic silver bar necklace from Beaverbrooks is the perfect gesture. It has a polished finish and delicate chain and can be engraved for free at any of Beaverbrooks’ 69 stores nationwide, allowing you to add a personal touch such as a bridesmaid’s name or the date of your big day. 


Meaningful bangles

Beautiful words displayed on a bangle will mean the world - such as these from notonthehighstreet. And with various messages available, you're sure to find one for each of your leading ladies. 


Sparkly spirits

Any gin fans in the house? Less suitable for your flower girls, but perfectly positioned for the more mature maids, how about a glittering bottle of Hendrick's to toast the celebration?


Quirky keepsakes

These stirling silver 'tie the knot' earrings from notoonthehighstreet come perfectly presented on a thank you card. The gift bag can even be personalised for an extra special touch.


Page boys and flower girls

They can be the hardest to buy for, but these ideas for younger members of the wedding party will strike a balance between practicality and sentimentality. 

Personalised money box 

Give your page boy and/or flower girl the gift of saving for their own special day with these personalised money boxes. 





Build a Bear

For the little helpers, a Build a Bear gift card allows them to choose and customise a bear they will adore with the added reminder that it's from you. 


The best man/ ushers

Celebrate your squad with gifts that they will love, without looking overly emotional.

Engraved accessories

From cufflinks to pocket watches, there are numerous products that you can add a special message or wedding date to.  


Personalised pint

For beer-loving best men and ushers, make his next pint the best yet with a personalised glass.


Grooming gift set

Are your main men preened to perfection? This grooming gift set from Apricot Whirl will go down a storm. 


Luxury watch

For an extra special best man who deserves an extra special gift, this BOSS watch and aftershave gift set will be welcomed with open arms.
