From the flowers to the cake, your special day probably wouldn't be possible without the help of your bridesmaids. These amazing friends play a huge role in your wedding, helping plan all the little details along the way and holding your hand right up until your big walk down the aisle. Common bridesmaids gifts include wedding day jewelery, however, many brides prefer to get something as unique as their friends are.

Don't Match

Gone are the days where the bridesmaids gifts have to be all the same. Giving a gift that matches each girl's personality can be a thoughtful way to say thank you. If you have a friend that is a fitness fanatic, she is sure to enjoy a punch card for 10 free yoga classes. Or if your other bridesmaid is a movie buff, make her a basket complete with a gift card for the local movie store, popcorn and her favourite treats. The girls will be sure to notice the time you took to think of them personally.

Get Crafty

We all know a picture says a thousand words, so what better way to say thank you than with a homemade scrapbook. Include pictures of you and your girlfriends from the early years and all the important events you've shared together throughout your friendship. This is a keepsake your bridesmaids will treasure forever. Don't forget to leave a blank page that can be completed later with a picture of you and your bridesmaid on your wedding day.

Gift of Savings

Although your friends would do anything for you, the cost of being a bridesmaid can add up. Bridesmaids have the expenses of throwing a bridal shower and hen party, paying for airfare and hotels, if required, hair appointments and getting a wedding gift. An alternative to buying bridesmaid gifts is to offer to buy the bridesmaid dresses instead. This kind of gesture is sure to be appreciated by your girlfriends, especially those on a tight budget.
