10 Unique Gift Ideas Your Wedding Party Will Love
While your guests are checking the wedding registry twice, you’re probably stressing out about what to get your wedding party. Good news, we have suggestions, from great best friend gifts to something the little ones in your party will love.
For your besties
A subscription box
Subscription boxes are all the rage, and the best part is you can get them for nearly everything from makeup to books, lingerie to jeans, and everything in between. Think about what your best friends like the most – is it the next great thriller writer? Is it locally sourced produce or other goods? – and find a subscription box to match their interests. It’s, literally, the gift that keeps giving. For at least a year!
This is a tried and true favorite. Diamond stud earrings are a great choice, but so are birthstone studs. What about a tennis or charm bracelet? Jewelry is a gift that she will wear forever, and every time, she’ll be reminded of your friendship.
For the best friend who doesn’t wear jewelry often, what about tickets to her favorite band for the two of you? Take her out, and make the night all about her from dinner before, to the performance, and drinks after!
For the Moms
A spa day
As stressed as you are in the days leading up to the wedding, so are your mom – and his! They’re worried about not only the big event, but how you’ll finance your first home, when you’ll have kids, what the cost of college will be for those kids…the list goes on! Help the moms relieve some of that stress with a full spa day – massage treatments, facials, mani-pedis – that they will never forget. Word of warning: if the moms don’t get along, don’t send them to the same place!
If you’re feeling particularly inventive, why not make the moms a movie starring – you (and him)! From birth through school, big events like the prom and college graduations, your life is remembered in pictures. Pick Mom’s favorite sentimental song, and create a slideshow of your life that she will love forever.
For the Dads
Dads are pretty easy when it comes to gifts: most like sports, the great outdoors, and home projects. Why not surprise your dad and new father-in-law with tickets to their favorite team’s next game, or send him on a guided hike through a recreational area?
If your guy’s are more the DIY type, check out what tools are missing (or ancient) in their toolboxes, and fill in the gaps!
For the little ones in your wedding
These little guys have to get all dressed up and spend most of their day being corrected by their moms – be quieter, don’t lay in the grass, smile bigger. So, reward him for his hard work (and all the cute you’ll see in pictures later) with something fun. If he’s into trains or comic books, find out who his favorite characters are and wrap them up!
Little girls love getting dressed up and having their nails done. Why not add her to the spa day list, along with her mom? Mommy-daughter mani-pedis would be a great way for her to celebrate after the wedding!
