If you’re planning a wedding and aren’t on Pinterest yet – go join now! We find the best ideas from various wedding boards; including our inspiration for this Wedding Party Gift Guide’s Bridesmaid Edition post (continue reading for a coupon code that will help you save big on all these bridesmaid gift ideas!)!
One of the new wedding trends that we see popping up everywhere is personalizing robes as a bridal party gift for bridesmaids and posing in them for pictures before the ceremony - it’s adorable and we can’t get enough of it!
Personalizing robes is such a smart idea – you’re sure to get your money’s worth because it’s a gift that both you and your bridesmaids will love!
For starters, as you can see from the picture at left which we recently repinned onto our Pinterest board, brides love giving personalized robes as gifts because it creates a cute new wedding photo opportunity that is truly unique! Instead of having pictures taken of you and your bridesmaids in old, mismatched t-shirts or tank tops while you’re getting your hair and makeup done, you can have beautiful pictures that look more elegant, girly and just plain fun!
PMall’s beautiful and soft Velour Spa Robe is the perfect robe for brides to personalize for their bridesmaids because they not only get to choose from 15 thread colors so the robes will match their signature wedding colors, they also get to personalize them in any way they’d like! The kimono-style robe can be custom embroidered with the word “Bridesmaid” or you can choose to use your bridesmaid’s first names, monograms or initials … you even get to pick having it personalized in block or script lettering style! The robes usually retail for $59.95 but they’re on sale now for only $44.95, better yet - you can get them even cheaper if you act fast because as a “Thank you” to our A Personal Touch Readers, we’re offering the coupon code “BRIDESMAID” which you can use at checkout to save 25% off all of PMall’s Personalized Bridesmaid Gifts now through the end of May!
To really make your fun bridesmaid photo pop, be sure to personalize a matching robe for yourself that says “Bride,” customize one of our Mr. and Mrs. Collection© Embroidered Robes so that it says “Mrs. (future last name here),” or look through PMall.com’s wide selection of robes for robes in different colors and designs that best suit your wedding style!
Your bridesmaids will be truly touched when they see that you personalized a gift just for them and they’ll be thrilled to receive a gift that they can use for years to come! Let’s face it, after all the help they’ve given you with planning the wedding, bridal shower and bachelorette party, they deserve to be pampered with a luxurious robe so they can relax and be comfortable the morning of your wedding (especially because of the uncomfortable high heels you’re making them wear that night!).
Speaking of heels, another unique bridesmaid gift idea is the Just My Style© Personalized Shoe Bag. This cotton bag features a cute high heel design that you can personalize with your bridesmaid’s name in one of 8 colors. It’s the perfect way for your bridesmaids to carry and protect their heels as they take them to and from their hair and makeup appointments on the day of your wedding and in the future!
This gift is especially perfect for destination weddings and for brides who have offered to pay for their bridesmaids’ shoes as a bridal party gift because they can give the shoes to their friends in these cute bags for a memorable presentation! The bags are also great for brides on a budget because they’re only $14.95 (save even more by using the coupon code “BRIDESMAID” we mentioned earlier in the post)!
Another trend we’ve been seeing is brides giving their bridesmaids the jewelry they will wear at the wedding as their bridal party gift. This is a nice gesture for helping cut the cost of being a bridesmaid for your friends, but what we think would make it even better is by presenting the jewelry inside the Wedding Reflections© Personalized Jewelry Box! The exquisite box features glistening beveled glass within a shimmering silver-plate that can be engraved with your bridesmaid’s name and any 1-line of personalization, such as “Bridesmaid,” below. While the jewelry is a great gift, this beautiful jewelry box helps convey your appreciation and love for your friends who are helping you celebrate your big day. It’s an impressive and feminine keepsake that she will treasure through the years – just like your friendship! You can personalize the jewelry box for only $26.95 or use the coupon code “BRIDESMAID” before May 31st and get 25% off the retail price!

In this edition of A Personal Touch’s “Wedding Party Gift Guide” we’re talking all about your flower girl (and be sure to keep reading for a coupon code that will help you save big on your personalized flower girl gifts)!
From what we’ve been seeing on the Pinterest Boards, the flower girl’s job requirements seem to be evolving and we love the new creative ideas brides are coming up with!
Instead of dropping petals as they walk down the aisle, some brides are having their flower girls carry signs with cute sayings (like the ones pictured at left).
We think it looks adorable and is a great way to add a personal touch to your wedding, and since it’s so unique, it’s sure to be a moment everyone will always remember!

You also get to add your own name and wedding date to the cover for a gift she’ll love and actually get to play with – all for just $12.95!
When it comes to bridal party gifts, some brides prefer to give gifts that her friends and family will use or wear during the ceremony itself. If you’re looking for a great ceremony gift, make sure to personalize the Flower Girl Personalized Bracelet for your little helper!
This pretty bracelet features a sterling silver flower charm and faux pearls that stretch to accommodate most children’s wrist sizes. The bracelet is custom engraved on the sterling silver oval medallion with any initial on one side and optional year on the reverse.
It’s a beautiful and thoughtful flower girl gift that she’ll be able to wear during your wedding and long after – all for just $24.95!

Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on its way and A Personal Touch has some great tips to help you throw the best Easter Egg hunt and celebration ever!
Hunting for Easter Eggs takes a lot of energy so PersonalizationMall.com was thrilled to see the recipe for “Bunny Bait” from Brown Paper Packages on Pinterest! (Check out our Pinterest Easter Board Here). This snack mix is perfect to hand out to the kids to munch on while they’re searching for their eggs and it will help hold them over until brunch, especially if they’re used to eating earlier in the day. You can also use the individual snack bags as place settings for the adults at your party or just fill a large bowl for everyone to share as an appetizer!
As you can see by clicking the above link, the “Bunny Bait” recipe consists of Reese’s Pieces Easter Eggs, pretzels, mini marshmallows and honey roasted peanuts, however you can edit the recipe to include any of your other favorite snacks, too.
Don’t forget to leave some ”Bunny Bait” out the night before to make sure the Easter Bunny knows where to leave the baskets … it will add to the magic of Easter Morning for the whole family!
When the kids wake up and run downstairs to see if the Easter Bunny has come, make sure they put on the Official Egg Hunter© T-Shirt you personalized for them before they start tearing through all the chocolate and messy candy in their baskets! The adorable design can be personalized with your little one’s name in either pink or blue font and can be printed on youth or infant t-shirts, toddler sweatshirts, infant rompers or a baby bib.
The cute outfits make for a great family photo op and will also help protect their nice Easter clothes from candy and grass stains while they’re searching for eggs.
Once they have their snacks and outfit – they’re ready to hunt!
We know the Easter Bunny usually hides eggs filled with money or candy, but we have a great idea that will add an extra surprise to this year’s eggs … turn the hunt into a search to find the secret message the Easter Bunny left for your kids!
You start by personalizing our Happy Easter© Puzzle with your children’s names and placing a couple of the puzzle pieces inside each egg (If there is more than 1 child involved in the hunt, we suggest designating a certain color for each child so you can make sure they find all the puzzle pieces that belong to them).
Then watch as their excitement grows with each new piece as they hurry to put the puzzle together and try to uncover the Easter Bunny’s special message!
This new twist can help balance out the competition for kids who sometimes struggle to find eggs but are great at puzzles, and it’s also great for competitive families because they can offer an extra prize to the child who completes their puzzle first.
Kids will love that the Easter Bunny left them a special message and game with their name on it, and moms and dads will love that putting the puzzle together after the crazy egg hunt will help calm down the kids before the family heads out for church or brunch!
We hope you enjoyed our gift ideas and tips to making this Easter extra special!
Along with the cute Kid’s Apparel and puzzles we talked about, PMall.com’s Easter Gifts Store has a wide selection of unique personalized gifts, such as Easter Baskets, festive home decorations, plush bunnies and more, all of which are sure to add a personal touch to your spring celebration!
