It’s wedding season!
Let’s face it, there’s a million lists for gifts to give the newlyweds. Want to know what there aren’t as many lists for? Bridal party gifts. Well, now there’s at least one.
Think about it; these ladies are your lifeline in one of the craziest, best times in your life. Chances are they’ve been there for you for a while now. You’ve probably given them some gifts by now, so what haven’t you gotten for them? Give some of these indie shops a try! I’ll even break the list down for you.
For The Diva or Fashionista
The one who always has a manicure. The one with that to-die-for clutch and heels. Have her give these a try:
Give her a nail polish set, made using a 3-free base and cruelty-free. No Dibutyl Phthalate, no Formaldehyde and no Toluene. The only testers are human. Obviously, they don’t sacrifice color or style for all that! IndiePolish offers lots of colors, and even a polish/lip gloss combo. Check it out on Etsy, or ask her questions via Twitter and Facebook.
Speaking of lip gloss, someone will want makeup. These gorgeous colors are available from BareNaturAll Minerals, and everything they make is vegan, organic, and gluten free! She’s got liquid or powder foundations, bronzers, blushes, shadows, eye liners, and shimmers. She really seems to know her stuff. Browse her Etsy shop, and say hello on Facebook or Twitter.
For The Jewelry Addict
Who doesn’t know an accessory fiend? I, personally, fall into this category. These are all really different styles, but they’re all gorgeous.
Oh, Natural Pretty Things, how I adore thee. She makes beautiful jewelry with real flowers, moss, leaves, and other bits of nature by preserving them in clear resin or glass. She just released a terrarium ring. Yes, seriously. Shop on Storenvy or Etsy, and visit her on Facebook or Twitter. She takes custom orders!
Nicole Hanna Jewelry offers some of the most beautiful wire wrapped pieces this side of the universe. Elegant doesn’t begin to cover it, and she’s got a definite style. As a designer, I’m also a little in love with her Storenvy shop design. I digress; she takes custom orders, but has enough stock that you’re likely to find something perfect already there. Give her a shout on Facebook or her website to find out more!
I love these lockets by Pickle & Ollie! Don’t get me wrong, they make other beautiful pieces, but these just grip me by the heartstrings and whisper “buy me!” Specializing in outer space jewelry that is 100% uniquely hand-painted, no two are exactly the same. She already has sets up specifically for bridal parties – score! For a little extra, switch from the set above to the nebula lockets for an even more unique look. Reach out on Twitter or Facebook with questions, or shop on Storenvy.
For The Art Hound
Some people would rather decorate the walls than their nails. Give her a hand with some really unique goodies for her home or office space.
Stay Gold Media has some really unique prints, combining vintage dictionary pages with graphic designs. If that doesn’t fit the bill, they also have great typography prints. Browse their Storenvy shop and check them out!
Wall art not her thing? These beautiful 3D glass arts are amazing! L.A. Glass Studio has beautiful work that any girl would love, so peruse her Storenvy shop or ArtFire. Don’t forget to say hello on Facebook or Twitter!
Can I tell you a secret? This isn’t just for bridesmaids. This little list is pretty dandy in a pinch for birthdays, graduations, or any of the other occasions you need to hand out gifts for. Yep, there you have it. It was totally an excuse to shop. Shhh, don’t tell!
