Your maid of honour is one of your best friends and she is likely to lend you lots of support, both emotional and practical, in the run up to your wedding day. As such, many brides like to thank their maid of honour for all her hard work by buying her a gift. What’s the best present to buy your right hand woman? Read on for our favourite gift choices for the maid of honour below.
Grown-up friendship bracelets
Friendship bracelets aren’t just for primary school besties. Why not try a chic, adult update on these classic gifts from your past? Your maid of honour will appreciate a bracelet with a personal inscription. Alternatively, it could carry her name, initials, or a quote from her favourite song.
Relaxing bath care
Allow your best friend to get pampered with a relaxing bathroom or bath set from Lush. Lush offers many fun and divinely smelling bath sets, complete with bubble bath, bath bombs and body lotion. The sets come in a range of scents, hues and styles, so you can easily find a colourful gift set that will match your maid of honour’s personality.
Every girl will happily welcome a bouquet of fresh flowers. Flowers are the perfect way to express your gratitude. Pick your blooms and their colours based on your friend’s personality or the flowers of the season. If she has a favourite flower, then buying her a bouquet filled with her top floral picks will be a lovely way to say thank you for all her help.
A framed photo
A framed photograph of the two of you is a simple yet heartfelt way to say thank you to your maid of honour. Pick a photo that shows one of your fondest memories with your friend, or a time in your life when you spent a lot of time together. It may be nice to include a little handwritten note in the back of the frame, letting your friend know what she means to you.
Go for something personalised
In addition, a personalised gift is a nice way to show that you really went out of your way to buy your friend something meaningful. There are several personalised gifts you can choose from, including an engraved wine glass or a necklace with her name on it. Take a look around Etsy for some inspiration.
A gift for your leading lady
Your maid of honour has seen you through the biggest stresses of your wedding day, and likely many before that. One of these personalised gifts can be a fabulous way to say thank you to your chief bridesmaid and to let her know how much you appreciate her and all of her efforts in supporting you in the run up to your wedding.
