Thoughts turning to gift ideas for your wedding party? These are the people you’ve laughed with and loved for many years, the ones who’ve supported you through the stresses of table planning and the thrills of dress shopping. Showing them your gratitude with a token gift is more than just ticking a box on the wedding etiquette list. It’s a way of saying a heartfelt thank you.
We know that your to-do list is probably feeling a little more like a to-do mountain right now, so today we’ve teamed up with Personalised Gifts Shop to compile a checklist of people to thank, and ideas for great personalised gifts you can get them. From engraved jewellery boxes to monogrammed items to cute personalised teddy bears, there is something for everyone in the wedding party, no matter what their age.
Maid of Honour
She’s your bestie, the keeper of your deepest darkest secrets and the one who always makes you laugh, even when you really want to cry. Chances are she’s put a whole lot of time and effort into helping make your day (and the run up to it!) as stress-free and all round amazing as possible. So, no pressure then, when it comes to choosing a thank you gift!
Gifts for your Maid of Honour:
This Might Be Wine enamel mug – sure to raise a smile.
You can’t go wrong with sweet treats in a personalised tote bag.
Or how about a beautiful bunch of flowers in a bespoke vase.
A flute glass for the Prosecco Queen (you just know this is going to get a lot of use!).
A personalised trinket box to remember the day by.
They’re your team, the girls who have always got your back – whether it’s busting out the big moves with you on your hen weekend or helping round up those missing RSVPs.
Gifts for bridesmaids we love:
Bespoke heart hanging slate to remember the day.
Bridesmaid’s tote (for those all important bits and pieces).
A delicious smelling personalised scented candle.
Personalised wine glasses for each bridesmaid.
A personalised compact mirror, for lippie touch ups on the day.
It’s a high pressure position – not only is there the small matter of looking after the rings (gulp!) but it’s the most nerve-wracking speech to deliver too. And as for organising all the guys on a stag weekend – we don’t envy that at all!
Say thank you to your Best Man with:
Personalised whisky box – what’s not to love?.
A hip flask, to calm any pre-wedding nerves.
Engraved cufflinks to wear on the day.
Engraved pocket watch, to ensure he keeps the groom on time.
Bespoke crystal whisky tumblers.
AKA Team Groom. From escorting the guests to their seats to rounding up the troops for the group photos, think of them as your friendly bouncers. Fingers crossed they also took more than their fair share of the stag party fun, leaving your groom relatively unscathed.
Great gifts for groomsmen:
A stylish bespoke leather wallet.
Classic wall bottle opener (bound to be a hit!).
Initial cufflinks to wear on the day.
Personalised usher pint glass, for a pre wedding drink.
Lighter gift set – always useful, even if they don’t smoke.
Fathers of the Bride and Groom
Whatever the role they play on the day – whether they’ve helped by contributing to the cost of the wedding, ensuring the cars are on time, or steadying your nerves as you head to the ceremony – this is a great opportunity to thank them for their support over the years.
Gifts for dad we love:
Father of the Bride cufflinks for the day.
Parents of the groom photo frame to display those memories in.
Heritage cheese board set (for the after party).
Engraved wedding tumbler, for a well-earned wee dram.
Personalised deluxe corkscrew set – because dads love a gadget.
Mothers of the Bride and Groom
It’s a huge day for a mum. Chances are she’s been thinking about this day for a very long time, long before you were! It doesn’t matter that you’re all grown up now, personalised gifts are still the best.
We think she’ll love:
Wooden heart trinket box for her dressing table.
Bespoke Mother of The Bride mug, a daily reminder of your big day.
A Personalised photo album (aka, her brag book).
A super pretty Engraved Bali bead bracelet.
Parents wine glass set – so they can toast your future happiness.
Flower girls/page boys
If you’re having children in your wedding party, then taking the time to pick out a personalised gift will make them feel extra special.
Gifts to make kids smile:
Wooden keepsake initial from the day which can be used as table place.
A unicorn jewellery box to keep precious jewels in.
Personalised yo-yo to keep them entertained when it gets boring.
A personalised favour bag you can fill with their favourite treats.
A cute personalised teddy bear thank you gift.
Flower girl money box, to save up for big adventures.
Engraved wooden star for their bedroom.
We hope this gift guide helps you choose something that’s just right for each member of your wedding team. Something tells us they will love these thoughtful thank you presents!
