Hearts of Gold

After yesterday’s flash of inspiration regarding groomsmen, today I’m turning my focus to the ladies that’ll be by my side on my wedding day. Now, I can honestly tell you none of today’s featured gifts are what I have in mind for my bridesmaids (it’s a surprise!) but they would certainly be contenders for any gal celebrating their nuptials this summer.

Small Leather All In One BagsSmall Leather All-In-One Bags – $105 @ Indigo1745
I’m a big fan of customizing your bridesmaid gifts, at least a little bit (hint to my girls). These gorgeous embossed python leather clutches are just the ticket; you can gift the appropriate colour to each of your gal pals to suit her wardrobe, but still all have a cohesive memory of your big day. Consider gifting them before your bachelorette so you can all rock the town in style together.

Embroidery By Melissa Spa RobesEmbroidered Spa Robes – $112 for 3 @ Embroidery By Melissa
It takes a heck of a lot of pampering to get primed to walk down the aisle. Relax in style and comfort on your big day with one of these ultra-cozy, waffle weave, spa-inspired robes – with a twist. Embroidery By Melissa actually offers up free embroidery on your robes, including your choice of font and text. Celebrate your new last name, call out your ladies’ titles, or embroider their own names into it. No matter what, you’ll be feeling warm and snuggly all morning long and have a pretty cute photo op during your prep time.

Tiffany Blue Box Small

Tiffany Blue Box (Small) – $100
It’s every girl’s fantasy (at least a little) to find a Tiffany Blue Box in front of them. These adorable porcelain boxes come in 3 sizes (from $80 for the mini to $170 for the large) and are a perfect keepsake of your special day. Consider splurging on a piece of jewelry to tuck inside so your maids can share stories of the box it came in all day long. An extra-fitting choice if your colour scheme matches the signature Tiffany blue or if your own engagement ring came from the legendary jeweler. Hint: pick up an extra one and use it as your presentation box for the wedding bands on your big day!

David Aubrey Alphabet Cluster NecklaceDavid Aubrey Alphabet Cluster Necklace – $50 @ Max & Chloe
Jewelery makes for a classic bridesmaid gift for a reason – it’s something she can wear to complement her dress on the day of, but also a special token she’ll treasure for years to come. Give her something super personalized with one of these delicate, elegantly designed necklaces from David Aubrey. Available in most (but not all!) letters of the alphabet, each necklace also comes with an assortment of baubles and leaves to really create a statement piece. Because of the earthier tones in these necklaces, I particularly like them for a late summer or early fall wedding.

Vera Wang Be JeweledVera Wang Be Jeweled – $49 – $75 @ Shoppers Drug Mart
Who better to bestow a bridesmaids gift than one of the world’s great wedding gown designers, Vera Wang? The latest ethereal, romantic fragrance from Vera Wang sparkles inside and out, with a pretty faceted bottle and an elegant scent combining celebratory champagne with pomegranate, red currant, pink honeysuckle and pink peonies. The dry notes of pink sugar crystals and Australian sandalwood make for a scent that isn’t overwhelmingly girly, but somehow perfectly suited to spritz on your big day, and for many moons after.
