What ideas do people have for small gifts for asking someone to be the moh/...

What ideas do people have for small gifts for asking someone to be the moh/ bridesmaid? I have got them a little heart plaque that asks them but I wanted something else as well... Maybe a card or something? Nothing expensive as we are getting married in Italy and all funds are being saved for that! Tia

My bridesmaids popped a balloon filled with a message and confetti. I filmed it too x then they had a card and a couple other little bits too. X

Just ask them face to face. There's really no need to spend unnecessary money on things that are not important. I asked my girls via text message as I was so excited!

I got hand made cards from Esty and put poams and messages in them and got personalised champagne flutes and dress hangers with their name, date and MOH/bridesmaids on them in my colour scheme all from Esty and wasn't experience and added mini pink champagne and mini pink truffles

I did personalised bottles of asti, wooden notebooks to plan, personalised magnets, a scratch off card, little compact mirror scratch off card and a keep sake card. Everything personalised, nothing was expensive xx

Some of the bigger Primark’s have bridal party accessories like team bride necklaces, maid of honour and bridesmaids bracelets, wedding pins etc so I gave those to my bridal party 🙂

Oh I hate these things... it should be a heartfelt question... the new things are just money spinners and it’s all tat! The gift they get on the day should be special. I don’t have to bribe my friends with presents

I just sent nice cards with a personalised message to ask them, no gifts because they get something on the day. The flower girl and page boy i made them a card each and got them some choc but only because they are under 7

I got given a mail polish and perfume pot when I was asked to be a bridesmaid. It was not a 'you have to wear these at the wedding' either, I asked much later if she wanted me too but it was just a nice nude colour and scent she thought I'd like.

You don’t need to get anyone a present to ask them to be part of your bridal party, you normally get them a thank you gift for on the day

Save your money x

Is this really a thing? I didn't get them anything for asking. I just asked. They will get a little thank you gift at the wedding so why fork out twice.

Etsy do cards which you scratch off with a coin to reveal the question. My flower girls loved these xx
