How to choose the perfect gifts for your wedding party

Gifts for the wedding party can often be left to the last minute, however, they can show your guests just how much they mean to the two of you. But where do you start? The gifting experts at www.hampers.com have rounded up some gift inspiration for the different members of your wedding party.

For the bridesmaids
Planning hen parties, bridal showers and dress fittings isn't short of a military operation, so your bridesmaids have a lot to be thanked for.
A little shout out on the special day to team bride will mean the world, but a little something to say thank you will go a long way. Why not organise a post-wedding pamper evening for your bridesmaids. This will be a great opportunity to unwind once the wedding duties are done.

For the groomsmen
Say cheers with beers, to many more years! Why not organise a post-wedding knees up for the boys; even if their stag party shenanigans might not deserve a thank you. Whether it's an evening of craft beers or perhaps you're more of a wine and cheese crowd, this evening could be a great opportunity to catch up on all of the wedding antics, as well as toasting to all of the chaps' hard work.

For the maid of honour
After all her hard work, she deserves something rather special. It will have been a stressful few months for the maid of honour, so why not gift her with a spot of relaxation; face masks, scented candles, chocolate treats and a nice cuppa – exactly what the doctor ordered.

For the best man
Best man for a day, but a best mate for life, nailing that gift for your right-hand man is super important. If you've got a fair few guests at your wedding, spending time with your best man might be tricky, so why not make sure your gift is something that you can share together. Whether it's a BBQ around your house after the wedding, or an evening spent in with a bottle of red, chatting through the big day once it's all over with your best mate is a great way to spend some quality time together.

For the mother-of-the-bride/groom
Only the best for the mother-of-the-bride or -groom! What mum doesn't love a spot of afternoon tea? Whether it's spending time with your own mum or perhaps you need to spend some quality time with your mother-in-law, sitting down for a catch up with some afternoon tea goodies makes for a lovely memory for the two or three of you.

For the father-of-the-bride
Always tricky to please is the father-of-the-bride, so you've got to make sure you get this one right. If he likes a tipple, then a personalised flask could be a good one to mark the occasion, you could even slip in a drop of rum to spice up his day. Even if he's not one for a tipple, there's still some really tasty alcohol-free options out there which can make the perfect gift to thank him for all he's done, not least walking you down the aisle.
