Thanking your bridesmaids for their support, encouragement, and help before the wedding and during the ceremony and reception is a welcome part of the bride's responsibility. There are lots of ways you can do that from the tried and true necklaces, bracelets, and photo frames holding a photo of who else - you and your groom. But why not try something a little different?
Put together a basket of bath supplies such as bubble bath, bath oil, luxurious soaps, lotions and creams. Include a gift certificate for a massage or manicure.
A night out is always welcome. Obtain certificates from local restaurants, movie theaters, fast food franchises, or Chinese take out place and movie rentals. Wrap each certificate in a cellophane bag tied with a pretty bow and place all the bags in a gift box.
Looking for something really different and a gift that your bridesmaids will use nearly every day? Consider a replica handbag. High quality look alikes are very difficult to tell from the real thing. Provide a different replica for each bridesmaid or give each one the same handbag. Match their handbag to their bridesmaid dress.
After all the running around a pedicure would be welcomed. Set up a pre wedding pedi-party at your favorite spa. Some spas will serve wine and light snacks as party of the festivities or ask to bring your own.
