Intentional Bridesmaids Gifts

There's nothing I love more than photographing the thoughtful details of a wedding day, and bridesmaids gifts fall into that blissful category...especially when they're thoughtfully chosen. Receiving a gift that's been handpicked for you makes anyone feel special and appreciated. Here are a few of my favorites that can not only be chosen to fit your unique besties, but also some that have a positive impact beyond your special day. 

  These sweet ladies work hard to keep things running smooth for you on your wedding day...not to mention the years of friendship you've shared. Treat them to a simple thank you gift...and a hand-written note of appreciation. A little love goes a long way to show them how much you care! xo

  I don't know many gals who don't love a few new stacking rings, and these are so simple and affordable to slip into a bridesmaid's goodie box! Also, the ring's makers target their employment intentionally to women in need through jewelry which is made locally in Nashville, and globally through textiles and leather goods which are made in Ethiopia. Win, win for these minimal gems!

  This sweet little leather pouch from Fair + Simple would be perfect to hold a new lip gloss alongside your phone and ID. But beyond that, 100% of profits after expenses go into initiatives like local business classes, small loans for entrepreneurs, supplies for the Jubilee school, and relief solutions for individuals and their families through The Haiti Design Co. What an impact for such a little clutch!

  I feel like Plum Pretty Sugar robes are almost a staple now for bridesmaids gifts...but what's so wonderful is that they keep adding new luxurious prints and fabrics that have me coming back for more! What maid wouldn't love to take one of these home?

  I can't think of a better way to deliver all the handpicked goodies to your bridesmaids than a hand woven tote. These would be adorable with a little coordinating silk ribbon (maybe from their bouquet!) tied around the handle and packed sweetly with treasures from their bride.

  I may be partial, but I think these precious crystal drop earrings from my friend Kylie down under in Australia, might be the sweetest adornments for either a bride or her maids on a wedding day. Simple, timeless and beautifully handmade...I don't think you could go wrong here.

  Your girls need something comfy to slip on and off as they run around helping out on your wedding day. I don't know too many bridesmaids who wouldn't appreciate a simple summer sandal to enjoy both during and after the special day. Added bonus...these sweet sandals are handmade in Uganda by women working to pursue university and overcome poverty. Women helping women!

While I'm sure you have plenty of favorites of your own that might make a great, intentional bridesmaid gift, I thought I'd toss in a few of my recent favorites to round out the gift pool. No matter what you might say thank you to your best girls with, if your heart is in it, I'm certain they will love it like they love you! xo
