Dearest Wild Flower,
This week we will be covering bridesmaid gift ideas! Cue the wedding bells and pop the champagne, YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED! 🥂 Your wedding to-do list probably feels endless, but Native Poppy is here to help. Save the time racking your brain for gift ideas — keep reading to discover bridesmaid gifts that will be loved and adored beyond the wedding day. Giving your bridesmaids thank you gifts may not be a requirement, but a kind gesture that won't go unnoticed by those who love you most. Your bridesmaids are your support system. They’ve been there for you through thick and thin, and a wedding is a great excuse to gather and celebrate everything you do for one another.
You may be tempted to gift the classic "bridesmaid" embroidered totes and wedding-themed merch, but we've put together a bridesmaid gift guide that goes beyond the traditional wedding party gifts. At Native Poppy, we source thoughtful cards, one-of-a-kind jewelry, self-care necessities, and all sorts of sweet thank you gifts to show your love. Best of all, we carry gifts from dozens of indie makers, so you can feel good shopping small for a bridesmaid gift. If you are a fan of shopping for thoughtful treasures that can’t be found in big box stores, you’ll love where this is heading.
A little note: We have gifts in both of our shop locations (South Park and Solana Beach), but if you prefer to shop in your PJs with a pint of Jeni’s ice cream in hand (or you aren't local) we have all of these gifts available on our online store!
Bridesmaid Gift Guide
Dried Flower Arrangement
Our personal favorite: the everlasting gift of dried florals. Gift them a token of your appreciation that will last beyond the special day. We recommend our Dried Flower Arrangement in a Ceramic Bud Vase. We source the prettiest dried flowers in a variety of shades to complement any style of decor. Like any work of art, each arrangement varies slightly and is sure to be loved by your bridesmaids!
Native Poppy Candles
Gorgeous scented candles, hand-poured in our very own studio here in San Diego! You can never go wrong with gifting a candle. We offer eight magical scents, so you can select the perfect fragrance for each member of your wedding party. They also smell better than your wildest dreams, if we do say so ourselves. Love balanced, earthy scents? Try our Sea Salt and Cardamom or Juniper and Mint candles. More of a floral gal? Try our Lavender Lemonade, Rose Cordial, or Super Bloom candles!
Cute Floral T-Shirts
Who doesn't love to get comfy? Especially a bridesmaid resting up from a long bachelorette weekend or after tearing up the dance floor at your wedding. Gift them a Native Poppy tee so soft they’ll thank you every time they throw it on. A few of our favorites: the Native Poppy Logo T-shirt, Lilac it a Lot T-shirt (perfect for your punny friend), and our Wild Flower Club T-Shirt.
Self Care Treats
Stock them up on bath and body necessities! We are all about promoting self-care and making time to restore and reset. For the bridesmaids who talked you through the stressful days of wedding planning, and helped you with last minute DIYs... an indulgent beauty treatment is the perfect gift. There is nothing that a good at-home spa session and bath bomb can't solve.
How about an inspiring book to cozy up with? There's no better distraction on the flight home after the wedding weekend than a good book. Here are a few of our favorites that we stock in-store and online! For the gal who loves her plants more than life itself: The Little Book of Houseplants. For the fierce feminist in your life: Bad Girls Throughout History. For your floral-obsessed bridesmaid: Flower Color Guide.
A Little Love Note
Nothing says, "thank you for all you do," like a note written from the heart. A handwritten card is a gift that they’ll actually keep forever because it’s the most meaningful gesture... plus, the cards are just that cute! Check out cards created by the most incredible artists that are sure to make them shed a tear and hang it up on their fridge!
Celebrate by gifting your squad timeless jewelry they'll wear forever and always. We stock jewelry from artists in California and beyond, each with a unique design sensibility. Just look at these cuties: our favorite Fleur Necklace, a pretty Floral Bracelet, or select the perfect Mini Birthstone Earrings.
Curated Gift Box
Last, but most definitely not least, our Native Poppy Signature Box! 💐 This gift box comes packed with our bestselling merch (think: cute tote bag and a delicious scented candle!), and is beautifully wrapped with a light peach ribbon and stems of natural bunny tails. Plus, it includes a cute card so you can write your own handwritten message.
Now that's what we call a bridesmaid gift they are guaranteed to obsess over. Let’s toast to shopping small this wedding season! 🍾👰
Sending all our love,
