Sure, as a bride, you get the spotlight. But don’t forget about your girls! If you’ve ever been a bridesmaid, you know how much work the job can entail: dress shopping, nerve-calming, party-throwing…the list goes on and on.
So brides, please remember to thank your bridesmaids kindly. Here are a few great creative gifts to buy or make your besties:
1) Custom Make-Up Palette: Create a wedding day palette for your girls by mixing and matching different eyeshadows, blushes, and glosses that your bridesmaids can wear on the big day. Click here for the tutorial.
2) DIY Lipgloss: All it takes is some vaseline and crushed eye shadow. Buy a cute container and write each girl’s name on it for some extra customization.
3) USB Necklace: Some brides give photo albums. Others give USB necklaces.
4) Personalized Heels: Give a gift certificate for a free pair of heels that your lovely ladies can design themselves. All customizations are done online and the shoes ship within a couple of weeks.
5) Birchbox: Obviously.
