Getting hitched soon and want to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids? Or perhaps you just want to thank them for their help with wedding duties? Here are 6 thoughtful gift ideas for your bridal party that your pals will appreciate.
1) Portrait Card
A card hand-painted with the recipient’s likeness is a gift that will be treasured. If you have artistic skills, painting it yourself will be even more special. Or look to artists like Spick Studio for their Watercolour work.
2) Personalised Satin Robe
A satin robe feels luxurious yet is practical for lounging in. Your gal pals can wear their robes for your Bachelorette party or as they get ready on your big day. It’s Personal offers custom name embroidery on robes for that personal touch. Alternatively, P. Werkshop on Carousell offers a more affordable version.
3) Cosmetic Case
Want to give something highly useful? A case will be well used to store everything from cosmetics to tech gadgets. Momshoo creates adorable hand-sewn pouches that can be customised with names. Check out their other creations as well— their miniature knitted cactuses can serve as cute paperweights. Just be sure to order well in advance as everything is handmade!
For a more luxe option, The Daily Edited has saffiano leather cases that can be monogrammed with the recipient’s initials at their Robinsons store or online.
4) Tech gifts
Tech-related gifts such as laptop cases, thumb-drives and more are always useful in our digitised world. Phoral Prints makes them extra special with customisation of names.
5) Personal Jewellery
Jewellery feels like a very personal gift, and even more so when engraved with the person’s name. How about some fine jewellery from Pantheon with custom imprinting?
For a more wallet-friendly option, Made Different Co offers affordable custom engraved pieces.
6) Bachelorette Party Actvity
Do you prefer to share a memorable experience with your friends rather than give material items? Consider organising and covering the cost of a cool activity that you all can take part in as part of your Bachelorette party. Some ideas include a sewing class (try Fashion Makerspace), a baking class or a trip to Universal Studios Sentosa.
Whatever the present, packaging makes the first impression and is a big part of the experience of receiving. Delight your pals with pretty packaging, whether it is paper boxes in whimsical shapes by Spick Studio or cotton drawstring bags by Phoral Prints. Both offer name customisaton for that special touch.
If you are gifting an experience, an attractive invitation will heighten the recipient’s excitement for the event. For classes, the training organisation might be willing to help design an e-invite which you can share digitally or print out.
