Bridesmaid Gift Bag

Giftbag2We all love to treat our friends to something nice so what better occasion to lay treats on your bridesmaids for their fab job than at your wedding.

I’ve put together a few ideas for a great gift bag stuffed full of treasures that can be mixed and matched to individual tastes. It makes sense to start with a multi functional tote bag or a big straw summer bag like this one from Topshop to cart their haul home and I’ve included options for both our UK and US readers…


The bag – UK: Get your bridesmaid’s summer hols off to a good start with a straw basket that can fit in all her stuff £18 at Topshop  US: Pick up a mini tote at JCrew in British khaki. Made from cotton canvas, it has great baby pink detail. On sale at $29.50.


Purse – Everyone needs a purse to flash when they whip out their cash! UK: pick a funky fabric purse from up-and-coming British designer Carla Beeby from £12 (left) US: Pick up a cute handcrafted coin purse at A Susi from $12, right ‘Flora’


Bracelet – You probably all know one girl like this – she’ll lust after a gorgeous piece of jewellery but will never justify treating herself. UK: Bracelet is by EB by Erickson Beamon, £20 at Debenhams – ultra pretty and still doesn’t break the bank of you! US: personalise this Swarovski crystal friendship bracelet by picking out your bridesmaid’s favourite colour and adding her initial on to the charm $22 at


Beauty – A great beauty kit is a treat for all ages of bridesmaids and Benefit does fabulously girly pots and potions for bridesmaids both sides of the ponds. UK:  Look Me Up and Comb Me Over palette with eyeshadow, lip gloss and blusher £16.50 at Boots  US: Gorgeous Georgia palette with lip cream, two eyeshadows and blusher $28 at Benefit


Read – Find some great wedding novels and DVDs that will make you positively sound like a fairy princess even during your bridezilla moments or put in the new CD from her favourite artist so she has some great sounds to relax to. Check out Amazon UK/ Amazon US for ideas. I’ve picked out The Wedding DVD pack, songstress Nerina Pallot’s ‘Fires’ CD and ‘Altar Ego’ by Kathy Lette.
