A Few of My Favorite Gifts to Give (& Receive!)

While you are busy planning your wedding, your bridesmaids will be busy pulling together a lovely bridal shower, getting in shape to don their bridesmaid dress, and getting ready to celebrate their friend's big day. A great way to thank them for all they have done for you is with a great gift. Recently, fabulous Michigan photographer, Nicole Haley asked for gift giving ideas via Twitter. I came up with a whole list of ideas - a list of things I'd love to receive as a gift myself.

As for my own bridesmaids - I wish I would have put more thought into thanking them, and if I had to do it all over again, I'd share at least one of my favorite gifts with them. Above are some items that all make perfect gifts for any friend - bridesmaid or not - these are just little goodies to say THANK YOU to anyone.

1. This beautiful spa robe from Restoration Hardware is lightweight, cozy and amazing. My mom gave me the chocolate brown one for Christmas and I've been living in it. ($95)

2. Reed diffuser from Pottery Barn. The pomegranate one is my absolute favorite. It seems to be discontinued online, however our local store still has them in stock. I see I may need to stock up on my favorite soon! ($20)

3. Scarves are THEE accessory for 2010. This beautiful one is from Anthropologie and would be perfect over a gray tee shirt and dark denim trousers. ($55)

4. Personalized invitations. These ones are gender neutral and beautiful. Linda & Harriett has amazing selections for anyone. ($490 for 50)

5. I love this dainty necklace with an aqua bead from Sundance, personalized with an initial makes it a perfect gift for anyone. And for under $50? You can't go wrong. ($48)

I did some stationery like that last summer and they turned out soooo cute. I want to take someone with nice handwriting and make their signature into that type of design. It would be so personal and so chic! I would want the robe!
