Getting married can be one of the most stressful times in a woman’s life. There is so much to worry about, from the guest list to the catering arrangements, walking down the aisle comes with a list of tasks to do, including: “Who will be my bridesmaids?” Soon after that comes the time to pick gifts for the important women in your life. As it can be difficult to find something special for each one of them to show your gratitude, use this list of the most popular bridesmaid gifts as inspiration.
One of the most common bridesmaid gifts for 2019 is jewelry. A necklace, bracelet or earrings are the perfect gifts for your bridesmaids to have as a keepsake and also wear the day of the wedding. Adding an engraving, whether it be a quote, the date of the wedding or something symbolic can add a lot of sentimental value. If your wedding is on a strict budget as I am for my fall wedding then make sure to comparison shop before you purchase these items.

Personalizing gifts like this make all the difference to your bridal party and will bring a smile to their faces for years to come.

Additionally, there are many self-care accessories to include with these kits. Cleansing face washes and skin care treatments for blemish-prone skin go perfectly into gift bags.
Also in the package, brides can include shampoo samples or similar hair treatment kits to help keep your scalp healthy between haircuts as 2019 bridesmaid gifts.

Put it all into an elegantly wrapped package. The packaging could even match the theme of the wedding, if there is one. There’s no need to be extravagant with this gift either; as long as each item is symbolic, it will resonate with your bridesmaids and how much they mean to you.
