Luckily there are plenty of options to choose; from tasty candy treats to wine, thoughtful jewelry boxes, and grooming sets. To help you find the best gift for your crew, we’ve compiled a list of 15 gift ideas. But first, you need to find out:
Do I need to prepare a bridesmaid invitation box?
A bridesmaid invitation box is a great way of asking your friend if they want to join the bridal party. While most brides could ask the question casually using an email, call, or dinner out, putting more thought into it is important.
Preparing an invitation box with thoughtful gifts and a note asking them to be your bridesmaid or groomsmen shows you appreciate and celebrate them for taking on the huge task.
What to put inside of a bridesmaid box?
The best gifts in a bridesmaid invitation box should be true to you and excite the bridal party. As such, you can add memorable gifts like pictures, edible treats, and practical gifts.
While at it, consider how to deliver the gifts because it determines the kind of gifts to send. If meeting them in person, delicate items are an excellent choice, but if using mail or other delivery methods, you want to leave them out.
