I recently had the privilege of standing next to my dear friend Amy as she said “I do” to her perfect match. You may remember the shabby chic bridal shower we gave her. The job of being a bridesmaid is a lot of fun but a good bridesmaid (and a great friend) puts a lot of effort and money into it. It’s so nice when the bride-to-be has fantastic taste and rewards her maids with fabulous gifts.
I remember the “bridesmaid gift” brainstorming sessions that I had as a bride. I wanted to give my girls the perfect gift but because I had a destination wedding, every single guest in attendance was already receiving a tote bag full of goodies upon their arrival to Cabo. I improvised and gave my bridesmaids one of my absolute favorite things. I purchased shoes for the maids to wear at my wedding. I’m sure that was a first for these gals!
What are some great bridesmaid gift bag ideas? My friend Amy did an amazing job on her bridesmaid gifts so I asked her for a run down on where she bought the items that she used to fill our gift bags. Here’s the 411.
OPI Nail Lacquer, Strawberry Margarita
Foaming Body Scrub
Personalized Burlap Bags with Chalkboard Tags
You could easily craft these yourself by following my Chalkboard Craft Tutorial.
I hope that Amy’s gifts have provided some inspiration for your wedding or special gifting occasion. After all, everyone appreciates a thoughtful gift! I will thoroughly enjoy using these pretty gifts over and over again.
Congrats to my sweet friend Amy, the new Mrs. Walker!
