Favors are not a necessity. Place cards aren’t either. You don’t need to order extra mints or M&M’s with your names printed on them. Those little odds and ends that eventually get thrown away really aren’t essential. But when it comes to true thank you’s, those are absolutely a must.
Your bridesmaids have carved out time, spent money, and prepped for this big day alongside of you. Gifting them with something special is a sweet way to show your appreciation to them, for their commitment to this time in your life, and your relationship. But so long are the days of random knick-knacks. Functional, stylish pieces with handmade touches are the new it-gifts for your gals. Here are some gorgeous handmade bridesmaids gifts that we’re loving and think you will too.
