For your ladies who helped keep the bridezilla in check; the lovelies who showered you with love and support throughout those crucial months leading up to the big day, you want to give nothing less than the most thoughtful, adorable, and unique gifts they’ll surely love.
Our tip? Go for a different token for each of your amazing bridesmaids to give it a personal touch. Here are some ideas based on your besties’ personalities:
1. For your low-pro bridesmaid
She loves staying in, but for you and all your pre-wedding shenanigans, she made an exception. Get her a beautiful printed robe that she can comfortably laze around in while at home.
TRY: Etam Embroidered Robes, at SM Aura
2. For your accessory-loving bridesmaid
You can’t go wrong with a dainty charm bracelet to commemorate your friendship. Choose one charm that symbolizes you and another that stands for her to make it extra special.
TRY: Thomas Sabo Charm Bracelets, at SM Megamall
3. For your theater-baby bridesmaid
If you’re a theater-lover as well, make a date out of it and go watch something together. Go for a classic choice like West Side Story or perhaps something funny like a piece penned by Kiko Machine's Manix Abrera.
TRY: Sorrowful, Sorrowful Mysteries by Kiko Machine, April 25–27, at Makiling Ballroom Hall at UP Los Baños
4. For your writer bridesmaid
A hand-bound leather notebook offers both beauty and function that she won’t be able to resist.
TRY: Alunsina Handbound Journal, P800, to order from Instagram.com/alunsinahandboundbooks
5. For your fit girl bridesmaid
She’ll surely love a fitness pass membership! Get one for yourself, too and try different classes at different fitness studios in the Metro together.
TRY: GuavaPass Subscription, P2,499, email firstname.lastname@example.org to have this prepared
6. For your always-stressed bridesmaid
Despite her toxic work schedule, she made time to help you with your wedding preps, so to help her de-stress as much as she can, gift her with the ultimate beauty sleep gift: an overnight sleeping pack to bring back her glow.
TRY: Kojie San Dream White Anti-Aging Overnight Cream, at department stores
7. For your make-up savvy bridesmaid
Honestly, even a casual makeup user would be happy to get her hands on some Colourpop lippies. Also, it's an affordable, cult makeup find!
TRY: ColourPop Liquid Lipsticks, P780, at Instagram.com/3pstickmnl
8. For your bridesmaid with the sweet tooth
Macarons are bright, pretty, and they taste heavenly! If you’re getting some for your bridesmaid, we suggest getting some for yourself as well, so you don’t end up nibbling on the ones you’re supposed to be giving away.
TRY: Ladureé Macarons, P1,200 for a box of six, at 8 Rockwell, Hidalgo Drive, Rockwell Center, Makati City.
9. For your sommelier bridesmaid
Treat her with a bottle of sweet, red wine she can have all to herself!
