As the first rule of thumb, a bride should present her bridesmaids with a gift that reflects the bridesmaids individual character. Finding the perfect bridesmaids gift does not have to be difficult. When you consider the fact that your bridesmaids are the closest girlfriends that you have, deciding on what to give them can be a piece of cake! It is best to give your bridesmaids a gift that is practical, inexpensive, and unique.

A fashionable choice among brides is to give each bridesmaid a set of jewelry. A coordinated pair of earrings and a matching necklace to wear on the wedding day is a special way to show any bridesmaid how much they are appreciated. If you are a bride that likes uniformity, that's okay, but keep in mind that the more unique the gift is to each bridesmaid, the more special it will be to her. If you decide to make every bridesmaids gift the same, consider individually wrapping each gift in its own unique gift paper, box or bag. If you don't mind varying each gift a little, a popular new trend is to give each bridesmaid her own personalized tote bag. The bag can be personalized with her favorite color and/or embroidered with her name. The great thing about giving a tote bag as a bridesmaid gift is that it can particularly be used the day of the wedding to house all of the items she will need to get through your wedding day. You can go a step further and fill each bag with a snack, toiletries, a pair of slippers, or anything else that your bridesmaids may need the day of your wedding.

No matter how small the wedding, planning it is no easy task. If you have ever been engaged in planning a wedding, you know that it holds the longest "to do" list that you will encounter ever again. Regardless of how many people are involved in the planning phase of the wedding and no matter how short the bride's "to do" list, she will always encounter some form of stress. Fortunately, as the bride you have the privilege to delegate some of your responsibilities to your bridesmaids. Bridesmaids are the backbone of the planning phase of a wedding through the eyes of the bride. Whenever you need help completing a task you can depend on your bridesmaids to get the job done. This is why finding unique bridesmaids gifts are so important.

A wedding is a special time for any bride as well as for the special people who will share the wedding day with you. Finding the perfect bridesmaids gift should be the least of your worries. Just remember to keep it practical, inexpensive, and unique.
