How to express how thankful you are to someone who has been your friend for years, witness of your love story and by your side during your wedding preparations or your pre-wedding anxiety attacks? Words are not enough, but gifts might be helpful. So, don't forget to present something to your groomsmen and bridesmaids!
You can either choose between traditional gifts or try to find something that perfectly express the personality of your friend or your friendship. If you decide to play it safe with traditional gifts, nice choice for groomsmen would be pocket-size flask, engraved lighter or box of fine cigars. And for your bridesmaids you can choose a jewelry or a perfume.

If you decide to give personalized gifts, first write down each recipient's name and the things you know that he or she likes, something that is unique about him or her and some great memory that you share. You will be surprised how many ideas you get like this and what is the best- you will enjoy in the process! For example, if your groomsmen loves beer, why not present him brew-your-own-beer kit or personalized glass pitcher. If your bridesmaid is a coffee addict, ideal gift would be a French press and a pound of fine, ground coffee. And if you have enough time, you can knit her a scarf, or make a photo album of your greatest memories. You can always make true her old wish and give her a ticket to a concert of her favourite band.
More ideas for the gifts you can find at online stores such as Uniquely Personalized.
What is important to remember is that gift doesn't have to be expensive, it just has to be from the heart.
