What do you get for the girls that keep you sane while planning one of the biggest days of your life? Bridesmaid gifts of the past have gotten a bad rap, when in reality this token of appreciation should be something that your bridesmaids will wants to hold on to. It is a good idea to think about what you would want to receive if you were in their position, and no, cash is totally out of the question! You don’t have to go out of your way to spend a lot of money; it is truly the thought that counts. And remember being a bridesmaid is not always cake tastings and dress viewings, it can be a lot of hard work. So no matter the gift big or small, saying “thank you” is the most important thing of all.
