It's traditional for the bride and groom to give gifts to their close friends, family members and those who helped with the wedding. Typically, the bridesmaid squad has to pay for travel, accommodations, and their dress and shoes in addition to performing other bridesmaid duties. Being a bridesmaid is tough work, so check out these great ways to say thank you with a thoughtful wedding party thank you gift.
After the big day, your bridesmaids are going to want to put their feet up! Help them out and bring the spa to them. Fill a wicker basket with a cucumber face mask, face scrub, hand cream, a soy candle, slippers, a good book and a terry cloth robe. If the wedding party is from out of town, consider travel size skincare and toiletries for the wedding trip that can be easily packed up to take back home with them.
A makeup bag itself can be a great gift, but go the extra mile and throw in some personalized makeup picks as well. If you want to buy them lipstick or eye shadow, pick shades that you think would suit them each individually.

If selecting colored products seems daunting, stick with palettes that offer several colors. Or go color-free with finishing powder, setting spray, mascara, lip balm and primers. You can also look for ready-to-go makeup kits like Glo Skin Beauty bridal kits, a touch up kit that is perfect for the bride, bridesmaids or mother of the bride.
Fill wedding weekend survival bags up with a few wedding beauty essentials like blotting papers, nail polish, gloss and tissues. Pack everything in a train case or tote bag that’s easy to carry around. Plus, good quality bags can be used long after the wedding has come and gone. Embroider the bags with your bridal party names or initials to add a personal element to the gift so that it shows you’re appreciative of your helpful ladies on your big day.
Customize the bag’s contents to fit the wedding location or season. If you’re in a sunny state, add tinted moisturizer and a pair of sunglasses. If you’re getting married in the winter, throw in a cute sweatshirt and lip balm. Make sure you include items they can continue to use after the wedding.
