Unique Jewelry Gifts For Bridesmaids
While presenting a bridesmaid with jewelry that matches her dress, is commonly done, self-designed custom made jewelry can make a wonderfully unique gift. Try to avoid traditional gemstones, gold metals and designs. Instead, use unconventional materials like silk fabric, beads, and intricate embroidery to make jewelry.
Alternatively, you can also make jewelry out of wire and beads or leather. If you have access to a jewelry bench, you can also make metallic jewelry. Self-made jewelry items are thoughtful and unique gifts for bridesmaids. However, if making jewelry is not an option, you can design unique pieces and have them made at the Jewelers’.
Select a metal like silver or cheaper metal like copper to make pretty jewelry. Use less commonly used stones like emeralds, garnets, opals and amethysts to create unique trinkets. You can use a really unique substance like obsidian (lava glass) to make jewelry. You can also use ordinary glass to make very delicate and unique jewelry items.
Unusual types of jewelry gifts for bridesmaids include charm bracelets, brooches, anklets, armlets, intricately engraved lockets, brazzles (made with precious stones and silver or platinum if it’s within your budget), toe rings and even nose rings. Just make sure the jewelry suits the tastes of your bridesmaids and that they aren’t allergic to any of the metals used.
Unique Gifts Of Apparel And Shoes For Bridesmaids
Brides often give their bridesmaids shoes or clothing that match with their bridesmaid dresses. Do something different by selecting designer or self-designed tailored clothing to make a unique and useful gift. The items need not match with the bridesmaids’ dresses, but can be in their favorite colors.
If you are a good seamstress, you can make your own clothing gifts for your bridesmaids. Just be sure of their tastes and preferred styles before embarking on a project. Hand embroidered blouses and shirts can be pretty and useful. You can also dress-up a pair of store-bought jeans with braid, applique and cute embroidered designs.
If you cannot make your own, you can always purchase clothing or have items tailored by the best tailor you can afford. Custom made shoes can be truly unique gifts for bridesmaids. A pair of custom made Italian pumps or high heels would make a nice gift for a fashionable bridesmaid.
For a bridesmaid who is into sports, you can purchase plain white sneakers or trainers and decorate them with glitter and permanent markers, or paint them with cute designs to make an unusual and personalized gift.
Miscellaneous Unique Gifts For Bridesmaids
For a unique spin on this favorite type of bridesmaid gifts, try using hand painted names and initials, instead of the usual engraving or print. Self-monogramed stationery, shoes, lacy hankies, luggage, and accessories make excellent gifts.
Beautiful paintings, which reflect something that interests or inspires your bridesmaid, make awesome gifts. If you find purchasing art from professional artists too pricey, you can purchase or order commissions from art students. Art students usually charge much less for commissions.
If you can commission an artist to paint or sketch your bridesmaids portraits, that would also make an unusual and memorable gift. Gift baskets also make unique gifts for bridesmaids. Since your bridesmaids are either close friends or relatives you can prepare themed gift baskets based on their favorite hobbies or interests. For instance, if one of your bridesmaids loves art, you can create an artsy gift basket with artist quality paints, brushes and other paraphernalia to make an expensive and personalized gift.
Before purchasing anything, make sure you have allotted a budget plan for each bridesmaid. Try to give presents of equal or near equal value to your bridesmaids so that none of them are offended. However, it’s ok to give something extra special and more expensive to your nearest and dearest friend or relative (maid of honor or chief’s bridesmaid).
