Our Pinterest guide to the trendiest bridesmaid proposal gifts you must check out.
The big question was popped—you slid that ring on your finger and popped champagne to celebrate. Soak it in, then put down your glass because you have a question of your own to pop to your nearest and dearest: Will you be my bridesmaid? You have your bride tribe lined up and hand-picked, but you need to decide just what to include in your very own boxed-and-bowed proposal.
Thanks to Pinterest, we have just the gift-giving insight you are looking for. Follow along and decide which gifts are simply too adorable not to box up with love for your girl squad come proposal time.
THE CLASSIC PERSONALIZED ROBE
You just can’t take on your wedding day without matching bridesmaid robes. Robes are adorable and can coordinate with any desired colored scheme or aesthetic. Personalize the robes with names or the first letter of each individual’s name. Your group will be able to take the cutest pre-dress photos come your Big Day. Our pick: we're partial to the Flutter robe (obvi!) from Plum Pretty Sugar but can't help falling for the mix and match approach above.
CUSTOMIZED DRESS HANGER
We love it when form meets function. Customized dress hangers can pretty up those getting ready photos and help keep all of those lookalike gowns straight during hair and makeup. We're fans of these modern hangers from Fox Blossom Co, especially since they're handcrafted in the US.
PERSONALIZED ACCESSORY TRAY
These little-lettered trays have to be the best trend. This gift is so versatile for your bridesmaid because she can use it for accessory safe-keeping, to hold trinkets like keys, and to dress up a piece of furniture. They’re timeless and can be passed on through generations. Our pick: we love the simplicity and versatility of this monogrammed jewelry tray, made to order by local maker PinapplePropper.
Glass boxes have such a clean, modern look. They can be used as the focal point of your box. Most online shops such as Etsy allow you to customize the boxes, that way you can request any monogram, date, or words to be etched in glass. Or go with something geometric, like our pick: this mini geo terrarium from Urban Outfitters is the perfect home for an air plant (must-have #10).
You can't go wrong with either something for your besties to wear on your wedding day or something casual they can wear every day. Our pick: this zodiac layering charm necklace from Urban Outfitters is a perfect everyday accessory.
SUCCULENT OR AIR PLANT
Throw a succulent or air plant in the mix. They’re easy to take care of and are currently on gift-giving trend. Our pick: this 12-pack of small air plants from Urban Outfitters is the cutest, and it's loaded with variety + texture. There's a 4-pack if you have a small wedding party, or you could do what we would do and keep the extras for yourself!
Candles are an easy gift to find because they can be tailor-made to fit your box theme. They can be seasonal, customizable, accessible and easy to find in all different colors, sizes, and scents. Our pick: we love these Voluspa Limited Edition Japonica Mini Candles from Anthropologie. They're beautiful, they smell divine, and they can go just about anywhere.
Pretty up your gift box and help them get those 8+ hours in with a sleep mask. Our pick: we can get our eyes behind these mix-and-match sleep masks in signature prints from Plum Pretty Sugar.
These little additions to your box, such as soaps and bath salts, create the perfect blend of “party” and “relaxation” that you and your bridesmaids may need to help keep self-care a priority. Our pick: what can we say? We're Herbivore fans - let their Calm Soaking Salts take you away...
Add a final touch to your box with a stunning floral arrangement. Our pick: check out your local Whole Foods or Trader Joes for fresh flowers including the sweetest premade mini bouquets to take your bridesmaid proposal box over the top.
Pick your color scheme and line the interiors of your box with crinkle paper—you’re ready to send off the perfect boxes to help you pop the question. You’ll have your dream “I Do” crew by your side in no time. Happy gift hunting!
