9 Food-Themed Gifts for Your Bridal Party (Slideshow)
October 2, 2013
For all of their help, give back to your bridal party the delicious way
A Food Care Package
The idea behind this creative food lover's gift is that you can incorporate a little bit of everything. Smaller items like whisks, lemon juicers, wine charms and stoppers, as well as gourmet chutneys and salsas are perfect gifts to celebrate a bridal party.
Another great basket idea is to purchase a beautiful picnic basket for the fun-loving bridal party. Search stores like Crate & Barrel and Williams-Sonoma for small picnic baskets. Then, fill it with all the picnic essentials such as a picnic knife, cheese board, wine holder, and additional flourishes tailored to the bridal party.
Give your bridal party a culinary experience of a lifetime. Check out local classes from culinary institutes or local bakeries for a chance to cook in a professional kitchen. Purchase tickets for each member to use at their own leisure or reunite the entire bridal party together again post-nuptials at a class.
Wine Club Membership
For the bridal party who loves their vino, a wine club membership is a perfect gift. Many memberships can cover four to six months, and you can begin the membership to coincide with the wedding. Depending on what type of wine the members of the bridal party prefer, you can choose from French wines, Italian wines, or a mix of different wines per month.
Food-Based Beauty Kit
Are the bridesmaids both food and beauty-product fanatics? If so, a great gift would be a food-based beauty kit and accessories gift basket. You can include an entire line of beauty products, such as Laura Mercier’s body washes that come in flavors like crème de pistachio and fresh fig. Beyond body washes, the bridal party gift can include coconut shampoos, conditioners, sugar and salt scrubs, and a year's supply of skin care products.
Channel your inner German spirit and provide the bridal party with a do-it-yourself beer-making kit. Throw in a Bavarian pretzel set and bottling set for the complete package.
The Ultimate Cheese Board
For the food lover who happens to also be a cheese aficionado, an ultimate cheese board will make a perfect gift for a hungry bridal party. Include a beautiful board, a plethora of cheese knives, and two to three of your favorite hard cheeses.
A Selection of Sea Salts and Seasonings
For the bridal party who loves to cook, grill, and season, there is an artisanal option that will melt their hearts. Try packaging a selection of specialty sea salts and seasonings that can include decadent flavors like Sicilian sea salt and truffle salt so they can experiment in their own kitchens.
Olive Oil Trio
For those who cook, a great gift idea is a trio of olive oils. Choose a brand with impeccable packaging that offers a few different types of olive oil so you can mix and match anywhere from three to five selections for the bridal party.
