Determining the gifts to give your bridal party can be very difficult. You want it to be personal, yet not too expensive. You want it to be something they’ll use, not throw in a drawer and forget about. Don’t worry, we’ve got a simple, yet comprehensive guide to help you determine what gifts to give to your bridal party.
Let’s begin with the groomsmen, they can be the hardest jewelry gifts to buy after all. You should consider jewelry that you know they will appreciate and use. Consider their likes and interests and find jewelry that focuses on those things. If you wish, buy the best man one item and the groomsmen different items. Some gift suggestions include:
-Engraved watch, for the young and trendy gentleman
– Lapel pins: they can be a unique way for your groomsmen to show a part of their personality. Choose one with a symbol of his home state, favorite character or sports team.
– Pocket watch, for the old fashioned soul
– Pocket compass, for the outdoor adventurer
– Engraved religious necklace or bracelet
Out of Order is a fun, luxury watch company out of Italy. Each watch is hand designed to appear distressed and damaged so the wearer does not have to worry about getting a scratch–the more scratches, the better! No two watches are exactly alike. These watches are available at Mark’s Diamonds showroom located in Cherry Creek North.
Again, you’ll want to consider something personal for your maid of honor and bridesmaids. Consider how long you’ve known them and any special moments you’ve shared (like being in your wedding) that you can give to them as a constant reminder. Again, choose something a little different for your maid of honor, consider adding an engraved heart to her jewelry to make it special.
– Bracelets: they’re a beautiful, yet generally inexpensive gift to give
– Custom name necklace
– Jewelry sets: earrings, necklace and bracelet
– Any piece of jewelry with a pearl
– Any piece of jewelry with their birthstone
One huge tip for the bridal party gifts:
Don’t buy them anything engraved or embroidered with the words “bridal party”, or “maid of honor”, or “best man”, etc. An overwhelming number of reviews has shown that absolutely no one likes those gifts.
For the parents of the bride and Groom, it truly needs to be something special. Consider mother’s rings or a personalized family tree necklace. For the fathers, you could give a nice set of cufflinks, tie clips or a money clip. Having the jewelry engraved with a beautiful, heartfelt sentiment will add to the uniqueness of the gift.
Unique Gifts to Give
