Whilst we traditionally associate Valentine’s Day with people popping the big question and subsequent ring offering. Why not try mixing it up this year and use it to ask your most cherished friends and family, “Will you…be my bridesmaid?”
An idea that originated in the States (of course) seems to be gathering pace and certainly looks like a trend that’s here to stay. We’ve all seen the matching wedding party dressing gowns, but wouldn’t it be nice to have your bridal party emotionally interested from the very start? Capturing their attention with a thoughtful gift box could be the very thing for the modern discerning bride.
At Fromie Gifts, we are all about championing local makers and suppliers, shopping small and supporting artisan communities. We bring together great products in exclusively designed gift boxes that really pop!
Here’s our 10 best bridesmaid / groom present ideas – for girls and guys
- Heaven scent candle (Pink Fizz and Grapefruit)
- Bohobo Organic lip balm
- Heist chocolate bar (any flavour is fine let’s face it!)
- Josie Mitchell handmade recycled silver hoop earrings
- Bohobo aromatherapy roller (Peace Out)
- Friary Liqueurs (Raspberry and Mint Gin)
- Girls who Grind Mug
- Resident ‘One’ candle
- Frome Hardware handmade steel bottle opener
- Handwritten calligraphy card to ask the question
You can write your own professional looking card by having a nosey on Instagram or swatting up on all things written by reading ‘Modern Calligraphy’ by Lucy Edmonds. You never know maybe you’ll be so good you can do all your place settings for the big day too! Pick a paper or card and ink to match in with your scheme.
If all this seems like too much and there’s way too much on your ‘To do list’ already there are plenty of pre-curated gift boxes out there to choose from. We’re obviously biased but the ones from Fromie Gifts are pretty damn cool, especially if you’re not wanting uber traditional and want something a bit different. Here’s some ideas of our own or give us a shout to create something bespoke for your bridal party.
