Wow how exciting this year will be for so many people. Some will get engaged, others will have a special Birthday and some of us lucky ones will be getting married this year or will have the joy of organising their perfect wedding.
Well we all know it can be quite full-on organising a wedding (I totally suggest a wedding planner, it’s lot easier), so I have done some research and put together some great gifts you could get your bridesmaids to say thank you. After all they will be looking after you throughout the day and night, holding your dress every time you need to make your way to the bathroom. If you’re a bridezilla then it’s a perfect way to tell the girls how greatful you are to have them when going through your high and low moments. Or you could use these gifts to thank the guests at your wedding!
Don’t wait for the man to buy your bridesmaid a special piece of jewellery. There are loads of different designs to choose from depending on their taste (or maybe try to get them something new and different).
You can not go wrong with One Red Bird; unique hand crafted jewellery. Renae from Coolum Beach does exquisite designs and there is not much that could go wrong with this as a stunning gift. If you want to add your personal touch then Renae will customise an exclusive design just for you bridal party.

We can use chocolate for gifts anytime! Don’t go the ordinary chocolate you get at the supermarket. There are a variety of chocolates that you can buy locally.
Located in Montville on the Sunshine Coast’s Hinterland you will find delicious handmade chocolate from Chocolate Country. Just talking about it makes my mouth water!
• hand made chocolates
• home made fudge
• tea and coffee
While you are there make sure you sit back and relax with a cup of tea or coffee and taste test the chocolate you think your bridesmaids would love best. Don’t forget to send some my way too 😀
There is nothing better than walking into a home with a beautiful aroma. Candles and diffusers are a lovely touch to say thank you to your bridal party.

GIRLS NIGHT OUT
Why not take the girls out for the night, but firstly let them have some fun with a makeup session. This is a great way for you to do a trial makeup run prior to your wedding.
As for the bridesmaids, they get a gorgeous gift from you and a night out to let the hair down and dance the night away.
Every woman loves an accessory or two. I absolutely love this idea; matching bags or phone case they can use on your wedding day. Match a design with the dress and personalise each one with their name or initials. A fabulous gift idea!
Miss Monogram specialises in bespoke pieces that are as individual as you. Each piece has been created using the best materials sourced from all over the world.
Here is a great deal she is doing!
If you enjoy having a wine or two with the girls, then I suggest a bottle would go nice with the celebration of your engagement. This is a nice touch to break the news to you bridesmaids. They will love to celebrate as soon as they find out.
If you want to give them a little more, then see our local vineyard in Montville, Sunshine Coast. Enjoy their award winning wines as you take in the beautiful surroundings.
