Consider these personal gifting ideas for your bridesmaids, which are both thoughtful and meaningful
Finding the perfect gifts for your bridesmaids is no mean feat. You will want to say thank you in a way that shows your appreciation without going over the top or making little effort. That's why personalised gifts are such a popular gift choice for bridesmaids, and indeed the entire wedding party.
From presents that pay homage to the bridesmaid title, to gestures that commemorate your special day, there are ideas aplenty for brides who want to give an extra special gift. If you're looking for bridesmaid gifts, take a look at these options which offer the personal touch.
Personalised flower preservation
Preserving your wedding flowers after the big day is an age-old wedding tradition to allow the memories to live on. Doodlebug Designs specialises in flower preservation by setting them in resin to create a wealth of keepsake products.
Featuring a selection of flowers from your bridesmaids' bouquets, these intial keyrings can be bought as an add-on item to a larger order and offer a pretty and personalised gift that can be treasured forevermore.

Joma Jewellery places personalisation at the heart of its brand, and the brand-new Bridal Collection features a range of pieces ideal for all members of the bridal party. Delicate silver-plated bracelets are paired with meaningful poems, while selected styles in the range can also be personalised by adding the lucky recipient's name on the card and initial charms to the bracelet. All items come with a complimentary personalised gift bag.
Joma Jewellery also offers a brand-new photo card that can be personalised with a touching message and two photos to share treasured memories with family and friends. The gift card houses one of the brand’s iconic A Little Bracelets, including A Little ‘Friendship - Best Bridesmaid'.

A fragrant keepsake
If you plan to create your own signature wedding scent in and around your wedding venue, then bottling up the fragrance and gifting it to your bridesmaids makes for a beautiful memento. The 'Scent Your Wedding' service from Olivia's Haven allows couples to request a scent for their special day, created specifically to their requests.
With soy candles, wax melts and reed diffusers available to deliver your wedding scent, why not gift them to the bridal party once the day has been and gone?

To have and to hold
While bridesmaids will have their hands full on your wedding day with bouquets to hold and assisting you with your wedding dress, a clutch bag will be handy to grab for any essentials throughout the day.
These 'Bridesmaid' and 'Maid of Honour' emblazoned pouches from Katie Loxton are the perfect, affordable accessory and are available in four colours: blossom pink, powder blue, sage green or dove grey.

A pendant with meaning
If your budget can stretch a little a further, give each of your bridesmaids a piece of jewellery with significance. Available in sterling silver and 22 carat gold plating, Rachel Jackson’s Birthstone Amulets are hand-filled with scoops of up to four different semi-precious birthstones to represent the wearer and their loved ones.
You could create amulets that are specific to each bridesmaid's birth month, or create a unique combination of all your bridesmaids' birth months to connect you as one. You can also include an engraving on the back of each amulet for added personalisation.
