5 Creative Ways To Thank Your Maid Of Honor
Thank your BFF the way she deserves with these maid of honor gifts ideas.
She’s carried you through thick and thin, listened when you went on and on about which color roses to pick for your bouquet and the one to help you snap out of that almost bridezilla-ish breakdown. She’s always been by your side and now she’s flying to an exotic island to witness you say ‘I Do’ to the love of your life. You were extremely thrilled that she accepted the task of being you Maid Of Honor, but now, how could you ever thank her for all she’s done?
Here are 5 creative ways to say ‘You’re the best!’ to your bestie.
#1: Way-Back-When picture album (for the childhood BFF)
Compile all of the photos (including those million selfies) that you two have taken together. Purchase a beautiful frame, scrapbook or picture book and start putting all of those memories together. Write down funny quotes you remember or how certain moment impacted you as her friend. This is a great DIY maid of honor gift and it’s sure to be a gift she will cherish forever.
#2: Friendship bracelet (for the sentimental BFF)
Do you remember those heart-shaped pendants everyone used to give their best friend to wear around their necks in middle or high school? It was made so you could break the heart in half and give the other half to your BFF. Why not bring back the memories with a gorgeous friendship bracelet she can rock now? And since friendship bracelets are meant to be worn by both BFF’s, it’s a great excuse to get yourself a pre-wedding gift, too! Win-win.
#3: Pamper treatment (for the hard working MOH)
If your MOH basically helped you plan your whole wedding so far, has to-do lists everywhere and gets mini panic attacks every time you change your mind about the menu, why not get her a massage or beauty treatment to say ‘Thank You for all the stress I’ve caused you’? We’re sure, she will be very grateful to be pampered after she’s made sure your special day went off without a hitch! You can both get one as part of your last hoorah before the wedding (hint hint).
#4: A tour of the island (for the adventurous BFF)
If your maid of honor loves to throttle the globe and see new places, why not book an adventure for her while she’s at your destination wedding? Ask her to book an extra day on the island, because you have a surprise for her and send her off to enjoy some island cruising and zip lining on you! We’re sure she would also LOVE to swim with the pigs!
#5: Keeping it practical (for the ‘I don’t need a gift’ MOH)
If you’re maid of honor is that one in a million who INSISTS she does not want you to reward her for the honor of being your go-to during this special time in your life, don’t ever let her go! In any case, since you’re the bride and you’re in charge, a simple way to still show your appreciation is by covering the cost of her maid of honor dress and make-up for the day. This will ensure that she is looking gorgeous without having to worry about having to dish out more dough.
Make sure all of your gifts are accompanied by a card or letter expressing to her just how much she means to you and how thankful you are for her friendship and all her help during this time. More than anything, she’ll appreciate your kind words!
