Planners and journals could be a great gift as well. You can find designs that are personalized, like this, and present them to your gals as a thank you for all of their hard work and support over the wedding planning period.
Along with one of those personalized planners or journals, you could snag a few new pens to finish off the gift. We have a sneaking suspicion that your ladies will love adding this to their desktop or even carrying it inside of their purse.
Monogrammed backpacks are always a good idea too. They’re quintessentially bridesmaids in vibe with the personalization but also super versatile for after the party too. Everyone would want one of these for their daily errands or travel excursions.
They may need some pajamas as well. Maybe you’re all sleeping over in the hotel the night before or you just need something cozy and comfy to get hair and makeup done in, you can order custom pajama shirts for everyone to enjoy.
These will definitely come in handy over the course of your long wedding weekend. Allow your gals to kick off their heels once the party gets going and slip into something a bit more comfortable. Cinderollies are the answer to all that.
Soy candles are fan favorites, so if you’re looking to add another item to the bag or something the girls can just enjoy without problems, this is it. You can get them personalized in all sorts of ways and at a really affordable cost.
