When the big day arrives, it is all about everything running to plan. And when things go awry, it is your family and friends who come to your rescue. Which is why it so important to show your loved ones how much you appreciated their time and help. This is not about giving wedding gifts to all of your guests, for these guys think about getting smaller wedding favours. These presents are specifically for your close wedding party as a gesture of gratitude for all their hard work making sure you both have the perfect celebration.
Here are a few suggestions of special and sentimental gifts you could give to those special behind the scenes women, who went the extra mile to ensure you had the best big day!
Mother of the Bride
What do you get the most important women in your life? What better way to show appreciation than gifting a sentimental, personalised present! A piece of jewellery is such a lovely, thoughtful gift that’s ageless, and engraved necklaces can be a beautiful addition to their jewellery collection. If your mum has enough jewellery as it is and has been working extra hard to ensure you have the perfect day, could a pamper day be the answer? Make her feel extra special with a relaxing session at a spa or DIY a spa gift set of all the favourite soaps and pampering products your mother likes to use to unwind.
Mother in Law
This could be a tricky one, depending on how good your relationship is with your other half’s mum. It’s one that sets the bar high and creates an impression, so for this, speak to your other half to find out exactly what she likes or enjoys doing. Like every mum, jewellery is always a safe bet. Take note of what she like wearing or seek information from your fiancé about her style. However, if he is anything like my husband – he won’t have a clue! In these cases, jewellery boxes are timeless, adaptable gifts that will help store and protect any delicate pieces she has in her home or on the move.
Hens and Girlfriends
Little keepsakes like keyrings, bracelet charms or a lovely set of earrings are thoughtful ways of showing appreciation to your girlfriends. Or add to their everyday handbag essentials with a compact handbag mirror engraved with their initials. Not only is this gift useful, but it will remind them of a special day every time they get it out. What is also popular at the moment is delicious smelling candles, which you can tailor with the initials of each of your girlfriends.
If you find yourself still super stuck, any edible gift is probably the most appreciated and yummiest of gifts you could give. After a long night of celebrating, what is better than a snack for the ride home or next morning! I recently came across marshmallows that you can print pictures on, I love the idea of plastering choice photos from your hen night on them. They would make a super fun reminder of happy times, and if they are a little risqué your best friends can always eat the evidence!
