Bridesmaids gifts can vary from a hamper with their favourite trinkets inside, a miniature bottle of bubbly, or chocolates.
However, a personalised gift, or keepsake, will also go down a treat, as your bridal party can treasure it forever.
From jewellery items, to personalised gifts, a bridesmaid clutch bag to wear on your wedding day to a special robe or foodie bundle, there are plenty of gift options to suit all budgets.
Bridesmaid Photo frame
To thank your nearest and dearest for their help planning your hen do, and carrying out bridesmaid duties on your wedding day, a photo frame with a sweet photo of you both in will be appreciated.
It is an ideal gift for those looking to pull on their friends’ heartstrings, but also not break the bank – as we all know weddings can be expensive.

Bridal Perfect Pouch
In some cases brides may not want their bridesmaids to have a clutch bag on them, as it may get in the way of them holding a bouquet, or fluffing the bride’s wedding dress.
However, one solution is to have the bride’s clutch bags, or pouches, coordinating, or with a sweet slogan on the front to keep with the colour scheme, and to house their valuables on the day.
