To those bride and grooms preparing to tie the knot this summer or fall, it’s time to start brainstorming gift ideas for your bridesmaids and groomsmen! We’ve pulled together some great ideas to kick start your creative juices.

For the ladies:

embroidered necklace

These handmade embroidered initial necklaces from the Etsy shop merriweathercouncil would make a very special gift for your bridesmaids to wear on your wedding day. You can custom order them to match your wedding colors or the even the favorite color of each girl. They are absolutely adorable and are sure to be worn again and again.

robes

Speaking of your wedding colors, what about silk robes in your color scheme? Easy to personalize with monograms or first names and so fun to wear while you all get ready. You can find the ones pictured above at MaySilk.

lindsay letters art print

How about a gorgeous art print from Lindsay Letters?! She has a great collection of prints – you cold buy a different one for each of your bridesmaids. Add a frame to the print and it makes the perfect touch of decor for her home or office. You can find more art prints more locally at Jones Design Company based in Washington.

Skinny Dip Light smooch light calypso light

If you have some wiggle room in your budget, splurge on these gorgeous, Seattle-made votive holders from glassybaby. When lit, they give off a lovely glow and each one is uniquely beautiful.

For the gentlemen: 

man bags

For the true “grooms”men consider buying personalized toiletry kits. These ones from SivaniAccessories are high quality and quite stylish.

Gifts involving beer are generally a hit for most males. For beer loving groomsmen be sure to check out this bottle opener key ring from Give Simple – only $10! And maybe this wonderfully crafted six pack bottle holder. Cold Creek Brewing hand makes the one picture above and the handle doubles as a bottle opener.

Every guy needs his own BBQ steak branding iron! Customize one for each of your groomsmen so he can put his signature stamp on the steaks at his next BBQ. Find them at Moments of Elegance.
