As the wedding plans continue to roll out, one thing you may be starting to give thought to is the gifts you will give to your wedding party. The groomsmen and bridesmaids no doubt play a huge role in the planning and organizing process and you want to be sure you gift them with something that shows your appreciation for all they’ve done. And while there is nothing wrong with the standard and traditional wedding party gifts, they may not fit with your style and the wedding itself. If that’s the case, here are four wedding party gifts that are actually useful and will be enjoyed.
Gift Them with Funny Socks to Remember This Special Occasion
If you and your significant other tend to have a sense of humor and enjoy the lighter things in life, then you will probably want to pick gifts that reflect that style. Funny wedding socks are a great way to go as you can find pairs that are themed for the groomsmen, bridesmaids, mother or father of the bride or groom, and you can join in the fun with socks for you and your significant other. Just think how fun it would be to have all the groomsmen wearing themed socks on the wedding day – it would be the perfect photo opportunity.
A High-End Bar Kit – Gift Them with the Essentials
A bar kit is one of those things most people don’t splurge on for themselves, but if they have it, they find it very useful. This is the perfect groomsmen gift, and you can even include some booze with it if the budget allows. Some of the items you can include in the kit if you are making it yourself are a bar spoon, a cocktail strainer, a shaker set, a jigger, a muddler, and glasses. These essentials will make it possible for them to mix up fabulous cocktails and drinks at home.
Treat Bridesmaids to Luxury Beauty Items
This one is specific to the bridesmaids. Why not treat them to some luxury beauty items that can also be used on the day of the wedding? This can include skincare and/or makeup. You can pick out the items and then create cute little gift baskets or parcels for each bridesmaid. One option could even be to put the items in a travel makeup bag – perfect for the wedding day! Not only can these items be used for the wedding day, they will get to continue using them well past the date.
Blinged Out Wedding Sneakers for the Bridesmaids
Here’s another cute gift idea for the bridesmaids. We all know that wearing heels for an entire day and evening is far from comfortable, so why not purchase a pair of cheap white canvas sneakers for each bridesmaid and then add your own embellishments? You can add beads, stones, lace, decorative ribbons as laces and so forth.
No matter which of the items you pick on this list, one thing is for sure – they will actually be loved and used!
