Choosing that special gift for those ladies that have stood beside you through the blood, sweat and tears of planning a wedding may be more than a bit challenging. After all your bridal party has been there through every fitting, color swatch picking even possibly pulling you out of those teeny tiny melt downs.

I have spent hours searching locally ,on etsy and even found some amazing diy gifts that I believe will be the perfect way to show your gratitude.

Get ready for what I believe are some of the most creative and thoughtful gifts each bridesmaid will cherish.

1. Lavish bath box. If you could photograph a smell , I'd believe opening this box and taking this photo was like capturing heaven. The aromas literally didn't leave the room for days!  These gift boxes include bath Bombs, bubble bars, Salts, Soaps, Soaks, scrubs, and more along with accessories needed for the perfect most lavish bath.

If you love as much as I do, they offer monthly subscriptions for under $40.00 per month

Ditch those plastic hangers from the bridal shop and break out your hot glue gun. These gorgeous and so simply made hangers not only photograph well but are easy and beyond affordable to make. All you need is wooden hangers from your local Walmart, 1 inch sequined trim, hot glue gun and ribbon. I believe my favorite thing about these are they provide the grip to keep those dresses on the hangers for your photographer to capture the perfect image of your dress.
