Bride’s Besties

Wedding season is basically upon us, and one of the last things a lot of ladies will tackle are gifts for their bridesmaids. Today I’m highlighting five fantastic bridesmaid gift ideas you can nab in Canada. Enjoy!

Pottery Barn Elaine Glass Display BoxElaine Glass Display Boxes – From $44 @ Pottery Barn
A monogrammed item is always an ace choice for your bridesmaids. These pretty display cubes are an elegant twist on a timeless tradition. Available in three sizes, I love the idea of showcasing some favourite pieces so you always have them on hand, or filling it sky high with glittering gems for a piece of dresser art. The tops can be monogrammed with your friend’s initial to make it feel entirely hers. As a bonus, include a piece of jewellery inside for a unique twist on a ‘gift box’.

Magnolia Jewellery Summer 2015Magnolia Silver Jewellery – From $20
Speaking of things that sparkle…I’ve featured Magnolia Jewellery in the past, but thought it was worth mentioning again, as this is one of the largest suppliers of fine sterling silver jewellery in Canada (if not the world). With such breadth, the brand not only carries hundreds of different pieces, they offer really amazing prices for pieces that will last well past your big day. And they’ve added a bunch of new items lately that are perfect for the summer – like the sweet heart anklet you see above ($27) and the funky toe rings for a boho vibe. With so many picks, you can also customize what each girl in your wedding party gets, making them feel special but unified at the same time.


Trind Keratin Treatment for Nails Kit – $45 + Caring Colors Polishes – $13 each
Looking for a fun way to connect with your girls before the big day? Why not hire an esthetician or two for an at-home mani / pedi party? Of course, such a party wouldn’t be complete without buckets of polish to choose from. I highly recommend Trind, a European cult favourite that’s making a splash overseas. They focus on total hand health, with soothing treatments like their Keratin kits to help strengthen your nails and prevent cracking or breaking, as well as their awesome Cuticle Balsam ($19.95) to prevent hang nails and and dry cuticles. They’ve also got an extensive line of coloured polishes that are three-free from some of the harsher chemicals in other brands. Line ’em up and let your ladies pick their faves to take home or get dolled up on the spot. You’ll easily find shades to match your wedding scheme or your bridemaids’ tastes.

Life is a Journey Luggage TagLife is Journey Luggage Tag – $44 @ Dina Denuevo
If your wedding is taking your bridemaids abroad – even just out to the lake – treat them to a sweet token of your time outside of city limits with a laser engraved luggage tag from Canadian Etsy shop Dina Denuevo. There are actually plenty of styles to choose from, including a sweet one that reads ‘Darling, Let’s Be Adventurers’ and a coordinating set to celebrate your wedding anniversary, meaning you can once again tailor them to each of your gal’s bags or lifestyles. You may even be able to get some custom tags whipped up – just reach out to the shopkeeper for details!

SST CosmeticsSST Cosmetics – From $21
I have a general rule of thumb – no one knows makeup better than a makeup artist. Whether you want your bridesmaids to look dewy fresh or classically matte on your wedding day, consider investing in some items from makeup artist Sharon Sharpe-Titus’ amazing line. While I’ve only featured a handful of the beauty products above, the line also encompasses tools and skincare, so you can actually outfit an entire get pretty kit for each of your gals, tailored to their colouring, skincare, and tastes. Free from harsh chemicals, this beautiful collection of products has lavish textures and fabulous colours to pick from, so get shopping!
