Weddings are about two people coming together as one. As the bride- and groom-to-be, you’ll obviously be the stars of the show, but there are others who also deserve to be recognized on your big day. The mother of the bride is one of these people, and she may be feeling mixed emotions about giving away her daughter.
If you want to show her how much she means to you, a heartwarming gift will no doubt put a smile on her face. So, what exactly is the ideal gift for the mother of the bride?
To help you find the perfect present, here are the top gift ideas for the mother of the bride:
When you give someone a customized gift, like stationery, wine packages, artwork, jewelry, and more, simply the personalized nature of it will scream meaningfulness. Indeed, customizing a gift in some fashion shows you’ve taken the time to find something that’s uniquely theirs. For the sentimental mother of the bride, consider a personalized, black and white photo collage with a natural frame and gold embellishments.
Or, if she appreciates fashion, you might want to get her a cotton canvas carry-all bag with a pretty pattern and her name emblazoned across the front. From aprons to journals to jigsaw puzzles, there is a customized gift idea for any mother of the bride to feel special.
Weddings and flowers go hand in hand, so why not spoil her with a fancy floral arrangement? A handmade, artificial silk bouquet is a good choice, as it will stand the test of time. Choose colors and flowers that match your wedding theme to give the mother of the bride an everlasting reminder of your big day. To add some greater décor, you may also want to consider placing the flowers in a classic glass vase and presenting one to the mother of the groom as well.
For any jewelry-loving woman (and who isn’t?), a beautiful bracelet would also serve as a great gift. When purchasing jewelry for anyone, it’s important to be familiar with the recipient’s personal and preferred style. For example, does she wear yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, or silver? Does she prefer dainty pieces or chunkier bracelets? Jewelry is highly personal. If you know she’s unlikely to wear a bracelet, then consider getting her a crystal pendant or vintage ring. Place the jewelry inside a trinket box to complete the gift.
If you want to spoil the mother of the bride in the lead-up to the wedding, consider an all-out spa and pamper day — and make sure to include her daughter as well. Indeed, the two of them will relish spending time together and feel refreshed and revived in the process. Start with a luxurious facial and massage and finish the day with a manicure and pedicure. If you want to make the most of it, consider going out to dinner or watching a movie together.
If you’re looking for a meaningful way to celebrate the mother of the bride, consider getting her a special, personalized gift. Whether it’s a framed photo collage or a canvas bag with her name on it, a gift from the heart is always a good choice.
Alternatively, you may want to get her a silk bouquet in colors from your wedding day or a beautiful bracelet in her favorite metal. Remember, a pamper day is another great option, as it is a chance for both mother and daughter to relax and unwind.
