Make your gifts speak a lot with some personalized and customised ideas. You can also check out my venture, The Drunken Boxist, to help you with some customized unique gift ideas.

The idea of having bridesmaids is not new to any culture. The moment my parents met bae’s parents, I was uber excited in my head for planning my bridesmaids’ boxes. The date or venue was not really fixed yet, but I knew what all I had to do for my own wedding! Now, you will get a lot of bridesmaids gifts ideas online – depending on what you want – unique, inexpensive or practical. I wanted each box that I was giving out to be as personalized as it could get. Personalized bridesmaid boxes are touchy!

My mom helped me a lot in picking up the gifts for my bridesmaids. 

Why is it a good idea to give your Bridesmaids some favour/gifts?

There are three primary reasons why I decided to give my special friends personalized boxes with handwritten notes and proposals. Oh, by the way, I had a few brides’mates’ too because my guy friends are my prized possessions!

  1. This makes every friend of yours feel really special and an essential part of your big day. I remember putting my heart and soul in the boxes that I prepared. Each one had different things, very unique to what they like or how we met or what they mean to me! Weddings are the time when friends and families come together to celebrate and thus, they should be made memorable. 
  2. Wedding preparations are very stressful. Making the gift boxes actually took half of my stress away and they were a nice break from all the stupid stuff that was going on during the preparation (about which I will talk about too!)
  3. I always had this dream of opening a small business of personalized gift boxes. I wanted to see if I can really do something in that direction. 

One of my favourite unique bridesmaid gifts 2020

I wish I had come across this one when I was looking for gifts for my ladies. This is a coordinates bracelet from Sincerely Silver.

However, I loved it so much, I got it for my bestie anyway. I am going to India in a few days, this is one of the surprises I will be giving to her. And yeah, this will remain a surprise because I know she doesn’t read my blog! At least she won’t read this one!

What is so special about it?

The idea of coordinates jewellery is that you can get the coordinates of your memorable place – where you met, where you took a life-changing decision or maybe where your better half proposed to you – engraved and wear it! It’s pretty cute.

This bracelet is so cute and delicate. Not to mention, the finishing is impressive!
