You look everywhere and search until you're exhausted and still can't find the right bridesmaids gifts or bridal shower gifts - so what's a girl to do. First, let's start by listing items that all your bridesmaids could use or would appreciate receiving. Since this list might prove to be vast, start by listing a few categories to help narrow your search.

  • Jewelry & Accessories
  • Bags, Pouches or Totes
  • Bath & Spa Gifts
  • Frames and Photo Albums
Jewelry for you bridal party is always appropriate. The challenge is selecting something that fits everyone's personality and style. Bags, pouches and totes are functional and make excellent bridal shower gifts as well, because of their practicality. You'll normally have a choice of colors and personalization to create an endearing memory for each attendant.

Bath and spa gifts are gaining popularity as practical and fun gifts for the bridesmaid, maid of honor and matron of honor. Although bath and spa gifts are pragmatic they can also be quite remarkable in their presentation. Our line of Punch Studio luxury monogrammed soaps are superb wedding party gifts because of their unique attention to detail, beauty and gift presentation, causing many to cherish them as a keepsake. Until they're used the soaps may be stored in their custom round gift box accented with gold foil. Their fresh look, appealing scent and quality design give them the wow factor! These monogrammed soaps can also serve as a kind jester of thanks. We suggest placing soaps in the hotel room of your out-of-town guests or in a guest bathroom at your home for those traveling to your special occasion.

When your desire and taste lean more toward the traditional, you may want to select a silver frame or unique photo album as a gift for your bridesmaids and plan to give it during the bridal shower to your attendants, the mother-of- the-bride and mother-of-the-groom.

If you're planning to have these precious soaps at your special occasion or wedding, you'll need to order early because there's usually a 3 week delivery time. We believe the "wow" factor of this unique soap is well worth the wait. Your friends and guests will thank you for such a special gift.

In today's climate families, businesses and now even brides must look for ways to maximize their spending dollars. Fortunately, the bridal couple can still enjoy the luxury of a beautiful and even "dream wedding" without breaking the bank.

Start by being creative and letting your imagination expand to include practical as well as non-traditional wedding decorations and wedding accessories. One such item is the nested box set.
The boxes usually come in a set of three, four or six.

Use nested boxes for guest table centerpieces as an alternative to the usual floral arrangement or vases and bowls. Allow your florist or decorator to create a striking arrangement with the boxes as innovative container holders. Another suggestion is to fill them with all sorts of goodies and place in the center of your bridal party's table. As the boxes empty, encourage your family and friends to take them as mementos. You may also choose to have nesting boxes at your guest registry filled with favors for all to take as they arrive. The possibilities are endless.

Imagine the surprise when your mother and the mother-of-the-groom are seated at the reception and they're presented with nested boxes filled with notes, photos, and an assortment of sentimental gifts and goodies.

Nested boxes are practical because they're not only beautiful, they're functional and are excellent for re-gifting and packaging all sorts of gifts in a variety of sizes. Add a little color and your distinctive personality to the wedding decorations by choosing bold, soft or even whimsical color palettes. Some may choose to leave the boxes nested other may want to split the set, placing them strategically in the reception area to enhance the wedding theme.
