The Bridesmaid Handmade Gift Guide 3: Alternative Ideas

There’s a world of unique handmade bridesmaid gift ideas beyond purses and jewelry. Here are five alternative handmade ideas guaranteed to make your bridesmaids smile:



Fashionable. Handmade hats, shrugs, wraps and other clothing accessories can be a welcome gift from your bridesmaids. These are often the items we don’t buy for ourselves. Yet they make our outfits sing. {Handmade by www.JadeRoseDesigns.etsy.com}





Unexpected. Handmade housewares and glassware can be unique and beautiful enough to become treasured heirlooms. {Handmade by www.GlitznGlass.etsy.com}



Personalized. Many gifts become more special when you add their name. Personalized stationery is no exception. {Handmade by www.BGDesignstudio.etsy.com}



Sentimental. There are some gifts only you can give: memories. A meaningful photo or multiple pictures presented in a special way is sure to be treasured by your bridesmaids. {Handmade by www.spoccdesign.etsy.com}




One of a Kind. The great thing about handmade is that you can often have unique things made just for you. Commissioning a piece that just you and your bridesmaids own links you together forever. {Handmade by www.lynnslittlecreations.etsy.com}

Wonderful finds here! Also, I made an interesting discovery. Here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote about it this month…
DÉCOR TIPS & QUIPS from AlphabetPIX.com
Bring Out The YOU In Your Home Decor!
Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Different tastes in decor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?
Bring out the Y-O-U!
Make a statement and let your personality shine through! Add your zing to make it pop. Hang something personal on the wall with a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. The trend for decor is becoming more and more personalized.
Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own individual style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
