There are a host of individuals you’ll want to thank for helping bring your big day to life. From the planners to the organizers, to the friends and the family that stood by your side, a little extra bout of appreciating is welcomed and advised.
Thankfully, there’s a little spot dubbed “Etsy,” you may have heard of it once or twice before, that has a trove of beautiful ideas up their sleeve. Some are handmade, some are vintage, some are innovatively sweet and made for keeping around for years to come – and they all work to spread a bit of gratefulness to your heavy wedding helpers.
We’ll start with some ideas for your bridesmaids and end with some snazzy ways to give an extra “thanks!” to the officiant that seals the deal on your vows.
These bracelets representing “tying the knot” in a unique, subtle way that serves as a hidden memory for years to come. They’re also a perfect accessory for the bridesmaids to adorn themselves on the actual day of. Each comes with a personalized piece; a dangling initial.
Themed gifts are fun too. If you’re having a destination wedding or your relationship is situated around traveling memories, these adventure boxes could be a great way to say thank you. There’s a lot of fun stuff included within such as sunglasses, a passport holder, and more.
Give the gift of relaxation. What better way to show your appreciation for their time and hard work then with a box filled with luxury. Soaps, bath salts and more, after the wedding winds down, your girlfriends can get some much-needed beauty rest with your help.
Flasks are a traditional thank you gift for the groomsmen but one that’s readily welcomed – especially when they have so much modern style. These are easy on the wallet and can be personalized nicely. Add to your buds collection with one of these sleek designs.
And finally, this “suit up” gift box has a bunch of essentials that will thank your pals in all the right ways. Suit up nicely for the big day, light up and take a load off, have a tumbler and bottle opener keepsake inside, as well as each of their favorite beers!
Mom and Dad will absolutely cherish these personalized hankies. Each with a sentiment to signify the day and your love/appreciation, they’ll be able to carry it on throughout the events of the wedding and then keep it for a lifetime as a warm symbol.
This piece of art is so distinctly beautiful, you just may want to gift in within a frame. Add your personalized thank yous and remarks to the design with the artist’s help. It’s such a unique bout of appreciation.
We absolutely swooned for this print. Grab an engagement photo (or a shot from the wedding) and use it as the foundation for this beauty. “All that we have become and all that we hope to be we out to our loving parents,” are the graphics that will accent the image. How precious is that?
Your grandparents will appreciate a beautiful frame – with a photo of the wedding day included – to display in their home. With a sentimental, personalized note attached, this truly is a beautiful way to celebrate grandma and grandpa.
Do you wonder what the night sky may have looked like on the day you said, “I do?” We bet your grandparents may like to have a look at their own. Say thank you for all their help and support with a snapshot of their own wedding night.
If you want something more offbeat in terms of a thank you gift, why not find a gorgeous new addition to their home – in the form of a serving bowl. This one, in particular, can be used while entertaining but look equally good on display at the dining room table or China cabinet.
Present that little princess with a personalized tote and water bottle that she can use throughout the wedding day. Of course, this can serve her far past this date as well. She’ll love seeing herself in illustrated version too!
Of course, a personalized teddy bear could be a great idea as well. We love how this one has a special travel bag to go along with it and it’s something she’ll be able to have for a lifetime – and remember how she was a part of your special day.
This one is both keepsakes worthy and functional. You’ll be able to spot the little dude trying to bust out some tricks with this chic yo-yo. The best part truly is the personalization as well, so not only will it be a fun addition to his toy repertoire but also a perfect remembrance.
For younger lads, a personalized plush elephant will work as well. The same concept applies to this gift idea as it does the flower girl option above. And we all know stuffed animals tend to stick around forever.
And for our older gentleman, a personalized baseball will do the trick. He’ll be able to keep this around – and displayed – for a lifetime; easily serving as a reminder to his participation but even more importantly, your love and appreciation for him.
Every good wedding planner needs a solid tote bag as well. This one just so happens to serve as a listful reminder to all the necessities needed on the big day. It’s a great way to say “thank you” for all his/her hard work.
And finally, make life a bit easier and find a new planner for him/her to keep organized. This one is made specifically for wedding planners – finding designs that match these heavy schedules is a must!
And finally, if you’re looking for something less traditional but just as functional – why not a bible/book cover? You can get these personalized in all kinds of ways – from thank you notes to initials. They also come in all kinds of colors and materials.
