I am one of the least homely/domestic/crafty women, but I wanted to do something creative for my maids. I created these boxes for them almost from scratch (purchased plain boxes, stained them, painted the inside, paited the letters & etc.). It’s probably the most crafty thing I’ve ever done-lol! I’d like to see other boxes/crafty ways that you’ve asked your maids.

Cute! I love these bridesmaid boxes!

Very cute! I’m still in the middle of making mine, but they are almost done.
I used cigar boxes, bought cute rhinestone tank tops that are NOT wedding related [so they can wear them again], filled each box with a key chain, change purse, nail polish, eye shadow and mini photo frame.
I also purchased their wedding day clutches and jewelry [as well as my own – currently waiting for them to arrive]. When they do, I’ll stuff the jewelry in the clutches, add a little bridesmaid booklet I made, and wrap with lace.
Can’t wait to post pictures!

@jenilynevette: I was on the fence about giving them their actual ‘gifts’ with these boxes! I wanted more in the boxes, but I also wanted more time to plan out the actual gifts. I like your idea because it seems like the boxes will be packed! Can’t wait to see your pics 🙂

@Karch45: Oh, well none of that stuff is their actual gift. I think I’m going to go the gift card route, and maybe a cute pair of earrings of something. I’d like to know that they actually get a use out of whatever gift I give them [what better way than choosing their own].

I did a “will you be my bridesmaid?” box too! I wrote an extensive blog post about it.

Here are mine! I bought decorative hat boxes and filled them with things they each really love. They also got their favorite liquor/wine, candles, persnalized hangers, wine glasses, and robes to wear as they get ready on the big day. And of course flowers.

You guys are so creative! I just went to my sister ‘so, you’re gonna be my bridesmaid, yeah?’ and that was it!
