The thank you gifts I put together for my bridesmaids included three pieces. Although the items they received were similar I made sure to give each special attention to make the gifts as unique as possible. I posted earlier about the MiA Bath and Body products I customized for them here, they received a full set of bath products with a custom fragrance designed specially for each individual.
I thought a great addition to that would be a nice candle holder to light when they are getting their beautification and relaxation on! Just like when I created our Memorial Candle Holder I used my Martha Stewart glass etching cream and adhesive stencils. The glass etching process is really simple. Clean the glass, stick the stencil where you like it, dab on a generous amount of cream, let sit 15 minutes and rinse off the cream with hot water. Peel off the stencil, dry the glass with a towel (I used paper towels to avoid lint) and you’re done!
Each votive holder had their first initial and a Fleur-de-lis design on either side. I included a vanilla scented candle.
I really wanted the gifts to be special so I even created custom packaging for the votive holders. I bought gift boxes, labels, ribbon and scrap booking flowers from Michael’s to create a custom gift box for each bridesmaid.
There is one more item I included in their gift bags, that post will be coming soon! Here’s a photo of all my bridesmaids posing with us at the wedding. Aren’t they all gorgeous ladies? Each unique and beautiful!
Now you tell me, what is a unique gift you’ve given or received? Doesn’t have to be wedding related!
