Amazing gift ideas for bridesmaids


Here I am back with another post on Weddings.  We all understand that weddings can be an extraordinarily expensive affair. But there are few ways to cut off your wedding gifts and bridesmaid gifts expenditure. Here are 10 cool ways to minimize your wedding expenditure and still rock the party!

1. Choose something different, yet affordable- choosing gifts for bridesmaid could be a tricky thing. One of my clients, who was looking for bridesmaid gifts for her sister’s Indian theme wedding, ended up buying almost my whole collection of wedding jewelry!!! Why? Just for one reason- all of them were so beautiful but under $20. Yes! that’s true. She bought 20 different earrings made of semi-precious metals and stones. She also purchased 2 pairs of sterling silver anklets.

Here are few pictures of the sold jewelry.

These Jhumkas are made of silver and other mixed metals.

2. Being unique is the idea- you might have multiple gift options for bridesmaids and the guests. You can go and buy them at any local store or at an online shop like e-bay etc. But the bad part is that most probably, your guests are gonna know about the actual price that you spent on the gift. Bad… I know :-/  So, how can you still make them feel special without spending huge bills!!! Easy… gift them something handmade or from another place. On Etsy, there are many shops where you can find handicraft items at affordable rates. Just go for something nice looking, classy yet well priced.

Trust me, this could be a great gift to someone who is going to start a new life. The Toran brings prosperity, affection in family and looks great when put on a door. This particular Toran comes under $25 budget.

Just added some new jewelry in my collection. This all is done by artisans from Jaipur, Rajasthan in India.

These are big size enameled Jhumka hand made by Indian artisans. These are smart casuals and can be worn with any Indian or western dress. Best suited for an Indian or Bollywood style wedding.
