The 5 Top Bridesmaid Gifts For Your Gin Obsessed Bridal Squad
Organising a wedding can be tough. Worrying about your dress fitting properly, whether Auntie Margaret is going to be grouchy if she's sat next to Aunt Paula after they fell out over 20 years ago and stressing over the cake are all part and parcel of getting hitched. It’s no wonder that engaged couples really feel the strain when it comes to getting everything just right on their special day.
But wait, what about the bridesmaids? Have they all got the right shoes for the main event? Is one of them having a moan about the dress colour and their complexion or are they planning to stage a revolt when it comes to their make-up? Although we can't keep your gaggle of girlies in check on your wedding day, we can at least offer you a little advice on what gifts to get your gin obsessed bridal squad. Read on to discover our top five personalised bridesmaid gifts sure to be appreciated, even if they're having a bit of a whine about everything else!
Let's take a look at a few of our faves according to the personalities, likes and ages of each member of your bride tribe!
The 'Big' Bridesmaid
Arguably the most important bridesmaid of all is the maid of honour. Not only will she be the person tasked with arranging the hen-do of the century, but she'll also be the one you turn to when the stress of your upcoming nuptials starts to get to you and you need someone with an understanding ear and a full drinks cabinet to turn too!
To show her just how much you appreciate everything she's done or is yet to do to get you down the aisle, a Gourmet Gin Hamper is the perfect way to say thank you and show her just how much you care. Complete with a full-sized bottle of The Lakes Elderflower Gin, gourmet gin and tonic sweets, premium mixers and sweet treats including popcorn and handcrafted fudge all wrapped up in a beautiful presentation box, you can also add a personalised message to your BFF to mark the occasion.
Just make sure that she's willing to share the booty with you after the big day! A hamper makes for a super thoughtful and luxurious gift, so this is always a wise choice when you want to show someone how much they are appreciated. It’s something that most people wouldn’t dream of buying for themselves, which adds that touch of indulgence certain to make any present seen extra special.
The Young At Heart Bridesmaid
We've all got that friend who loves all things unicorn, so if you can combine her love of mythical creatures with premium booze then you're on to a winner! Our Gin and Unicorns Gin Bottle comes complete with a pretty in pink personalised label and a tangy, high-quality South Bank gin that goes perfectly with her mixture of choice.
Better still, with a name label, you can rest easy knowing that the rest of your bride squad aren't going to open her bottle 'by mistake' before you make your way to the church. On second thoughts, it might be a good idea to wait until after the ceremony to present this to your bridesmaid in case she gets tempted to give it a try before you've got that ring on your finger.
Giving a gift that ties in with your girl’s own personal tastes is a thoughtful gesture as it shows that you pay attention to their likes and dislikes and went the extra mile to get something she would enjoy using. This useful rule of thumb will serve you well whenever you have a gift to give, long after the confetti has settled on your big day.
The Related Bridesmaid
Many brides find themselves asking family members to be a member of their bridal party for different reasons, and these special ladies can prove to be pretty important when it comes to your big day. From helping you find your earrings, sorting out last-minute seating plan changes and helping to meet and greet guests at the church or venue, they really do come into their own when the pressure is on, so you'll want to reward them with a little token keepsake for all of their help.
Our 'The Gin to my Tonic' Glass Gift Set is the ideal gift to show them you appreciate the role they've played in your big day. This set comes beautifully presented in a luxurious gift box that looks like you've really pushed the boat out. For a really thoughtful gift, personalise their crystal glass so every time they kick back with a refreshing G&T, they'll have happy memories of your day.
Looking for a gift ready presented in a gift box not only saves you time, it makes your present appear all the more luxe. So it’s a win, win!
The Gin-Hating Bridesmaid
Sadly, not all ladies love gin, but just because they can't stand the stuff doesn't mean that we don't have the ideal gift for your gin-hating bridesmaid! Prosecco is one of the most on-trend drinks for this wedding season, and you simply can't have a wedding without a few bubbles, so this personalised bottle of crispy and refreshing fizz is sure to go down a treat!
With a cute personalised label, our Pink and Black Prosecco can carry the wording of your choice along with the bridesmaid's name, making it a totally bespoke gift for the bridesmaid who loves luxurious bubbles but isn't a big fan of the stronger stuff.
Simply pop this little treat into a bottle bag, and you're good to go!
The Underage Bridesmaid
If you've got a baby sis or young family friend that will be stepping up to be part of your bride tribe this year, the last thing you want to do is leave them out when you're giving out thank you gifts.
Don't worry, GiftPup has got your under 18 bridesmaid's needs covered with our compact and cute Thank You Bridesmaid Mirror Card. This offers you the opportunity to add a photo of the youngest of your bridesmaids and gives a helpful accessory they can slip into their handbag and use to touch up their lip gloss during the reception.
A card and little token gift all in one, you can personalise the card with a message of your choice to tell them just how much having them as part of your special day means to you and your intended.
We hope that this guide to the perfect bridesmaid gifts has given you a little inspiration and taken the stress out of those all-important finishing touches that often get left to the last minute.
