7 Great Bridesmaids and Groomsmen Gift Ideas - TréCreative Tips&Tricks
As a bride, there are so many things to think about when it comes down to planning and finalizing the little details. Our desire is to be a resource to not only our TréCreative couples but any newly engaged couple trying to plan their wedding! One of those last minute details that we've had questions come up about is what people should get their bridal party as gifts. It's your wedding day, you make the rules and set the tone so it's really up to you how much or even if want to get them gifts. This is not a necessity, but a little thank you from you or memento from your wedding day can be extra special to those involved!
We've seen a lot of really awesome gifts over the years. Here are some of our favorite ideas off the tops of our heads. Use this guide as you plan your own wedding or send it to a friend who is!
Something to Wear - We think bridesmaids robes are a wonderful gift that can make your getting ready photos look even more uniform and pretty! It's always fun to take a cute robe shot with your girls right before you step into your wedding dress. Plus, your girls can keep these forever and they're super comfy to wear while getting their hair and makeup done. There are so many shops online that sell these robes. Here are some of the favorite places we've found. Etsy, Pottery Barn and BHLDN (by Anthropologie). If I knew of BHLDN when I got married I would have been in trouble, I love their wedding and bridesmaid line, seriously go check it out!
Something that Shines - Lets be honest, what girl doesn't like jewelry?!? This can be a great gift for each of your bridesmaids and also help add a little cohesive bling for photos during the wedding. If you hint at your bridesmaids ahead of time, they'll know not to worry about finding jewelry to go with their dress!
Something to Carry - Most bridesmaids are carrying their phone around with them during the reception and how awesome would it be to have a cute little wedding clutch to keep their belongings in during the rest of the day?!? Tote bags are another great gift and can be used as a future shopping, grocery or accessory bag. You can simply find these online or have someone like our friend Carey monogram each bridesmaids initials to further customize.
Something Fun - These are by far the most awesome groomsmen gifts we have ever seen, they're called MAN CRATES. They are wooden crates that are pre-packaged and themed. With them comes a mini crowbar and half the fun is trying to open the crate. They have all sorts of crates that range in price from personalized whiskey, jerky, football fanatic game day snacks, grill master crates and the list goes on! Seriously check out this site for groomsmen gifts, your guys will love it!!
Something Dangerous - That feels so funny typing, but honestly guys really like getting awesome weapons and knives. We've seen all different types at wedding. Throwing knives, engraved knives and even machetes and axes. These make for great pictures and a manly memento from your wedding day!
Something Useful - A watch is such a classy groomsmen gift idea that will never go out of style! There are all sorts of amazing and stylish watches online or in local shops. Get each groomsmen a nice new watch and they can rock it on the wedding day and for days to come!
Something to Drink - We've seen lots of alcohol themed accessories given as gifts but nothing can compete with the Yeti Beer Koozie. The brand is amazing and will no joke your beverage cold for days, which is perfect for a hot summer day. We even found this brand a Collier's a local hardware store in downtown Chico so you locals can see them in person! In reality, you can't go wrong with any type of alcohol accessory. Whether it's a custom growler, the groomsman's favorite drink or maybe a Moscow Mule cup, they're guaranteed to love it!
