Here is a list of creative and thoughtful, but inexpensive gift ideas to let your junior bridesmaids know how appreciative you are that they are a part of your most special day.
If any of your junior bridesmaids are budding beauty queens, find a cute cosmetic bag that matches the color of their dresses and fill it with plenty of fun goodies. Brushes and comb sets, hair accessories like barrettes and ponytail holders, age-appropriate make-up, and manicure supplies will delight any girl and give her everything she needs to gussy up for the big day.
Faux diamonds can be a young girl’s best friend. Fill a fancy bag full of glittery trinkets, baubles, jeweled barrettes, toe rings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings. For an extra added touch, include a jewelry making kit complete with beads, wire, earring backs, and clasps so she can create her own stunning fashions.
If your junior bridesmaid is the creative type, fill a bag or basket chock full of craft supplies. Coloring books, sketch pads, canvas, crayons, magic markers, colored pencils, paint sets, pastels, and paintbrushes will surely be welcomed.
Fill a basket with some classic books, bookmarks, night lights, and gift certificates to book stores for a special gift that will let your bookworm know how much she means to you.
The sporting life
If your junior bridesmaid is interested in sports, find out just what she’s into and surprise her with a bag filled with appropriate accessories. A personalized gym bag filled with items like sweat socks, jogging suits, and miniature soccer balls are sure to please the athletic bridesmaid.
The great outdoors
If any of the junior bridesmaids in your wedding party are nature lovers, create a special gift that incorporates their love of the outdoors. Whether she’s a camper, a Girl Scout, or just interested in gardening, you can fill a planter or duffle bag with things like camping supplies, gardening tools, seed packets, pots, and planters to create a fun nature-themed gift.
There’s nary a young girl who doesn’t love a slumber party. Create a basket filled with pajama’s, slippers, hot cocoa, popcorn, games, comfy socks, or even a nice sheet set or blanket. She’ll be the hit of the next slumber party and be thankful for your thoughtfulness.
Create a basket of delectable goodies that will satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth. The possibilities are endless, and if you happen to know the junior bridesmaid well enough, you can always find out what their favorite candies are and build a treat basket around them.
If you aren’t sure what your bridesmaids hobbies are or what they may like to do, gift cards are the best way to go. Instead of handing over a plain, boring envelope, put the gift cards in a small basket and fill it with generic items such as candy, lip gloss, pens, pencils or notepads.
