The peonies are out, and wedding season is in full swing. I'm off to a friend's wedding tomorrow (looking forward to showing off the great second hand floral midi dress I nabbed from Vinted), and it gave me the idea to put together this lovely little gift guide.
Here are some sweet ideas if you're looking to treat your bridesmaids to say thank you for their help on the big day. This list not only features affordable gifts all under £50 but also a bunch of lovely small businesses to support. Only the best for your besties!
Bath In A Tin - £13 - Aphrodite and Ares
So cute! A little bath gift set in a personalised tin. These mini bath bombs are cruelty-free and vegan, plus the packaging is plastic free.
Seasonal Dried Bouquet - £43 - Haus of Botanica
A dried flower bouquet for each of your bridesmaids to carry, and take home as a lovely reminder of the day. These preserved flowers last for more than a year.
Luxury Candle Gift Set - £22 - Hazel & Blue
Seasonally inspired hand poured scented candles. Choose from natural scents like Wild Freesia and Peony Blush.
Rose Quartz Crystals Necklace - £36 - Honeydew Club
Gift your bridesmaids a dainty piece of gemstone jewellery to wear on the wedding day, and for years to come. Rose quartz is known as the stone for love and these crystals have dreamy soft pink hues. Handmade with sterling silver for a little bit of sparkle.
'The Big Pink Box' Luxury Bath Care Gift Set - £40 - Vertue Box
If you want to go all out with luxury pampering, this gift set has products made from 100% natural ingredients. Relaxing bath salts, rose soap, rose water and more skincare goodies.
Personalised Embroidered Birth Flower T-Shirt - £28 - Rock On Ruby
You've probably heard of birthstones, but did you know that each month also has a birth flower? And you can get them embroidered on these organic cotton t-shirts. Cute without being too matchy matchy.
Personalised Trinket Dish - £22 - Sunday's Daughter
I do love a trinket dish and they're perfect for storing your everyday jewellery. Made from beech and laser engraved with their name in a pretty script font.
Oh to own a beautifully embroidered wash bag such as this. Can you imagine how much easier packing would be with this wash bag to stash all your beauty bits? Plus Elizabeth Scarlett donate 2% of annual sales to wildlife conservation, so it's pretty and does good too.
The Vegan Collection - £24 - Bare Bones Chocolate
I always say you can't go wrong with chocolate. Especially handcrafted vegan dark chocolate! Handmade in micro batches in Glasgow, this is chocolate with only the best ingredients.
Illustrated Peach Thank You Card - £3.50 - Annie Dornan Smith
Don't forget the thank you card! A handwritten note is always meaningful. Annie Dornan Smith designs super pretty paper goods from her original paintings.
Affordable and lovely gifts for your bridesmaids, sorted. One more list to tick off for your wedding planning and a whole bunch of small businesses to bookmark for when you next need a present.
