I am planning out a DIY project to ask my girlfriend’s to be my bridesmaids and I need help completing this project.
So far i’m going to make the following boxes:
I have all the supplies that I need and inside I will include sentimental letter/notes to each of them asking them to be my bridesmaids; however i am currently at a lost on what else to include with the letter. Here are the three choice that I currently have:
1. tea (with flavors that describe there personality (ie. Queens of Heart) and honey sticks. However I don’t think the honey stick will fit in the boxes.
2. A charm. And then later on as their bridemaid gifts I can give a charm braclet (however one charm on a charm bracelet will probably not be enough, and not everyone likes charm bracelets)
So can you guys please offer some other suggestions of what little personalized trinket or gift I can but in this box for each of them?

Things Remembered has cute bracelets that you can get their names/initials engraved…

Your boxes are sooooo cute!!! I love them!!
I’m not sure how big your boxes are, but when I was asked to be a BM, the bride gave me a picture frame with a picture of the two of us, which was cute.
I like your charm idea, except that they may find it strange to be given a charm if they don’t have a charm bracelet. You might want to give them the bracelet first, and then give them charms later. Or give them the bracelet now with one charm, and then other charms later, though I’m not sure what kind of charms you’d include. Preferrably something meaningful to the recipient or between the two of you.

@mudratdetector: Same! I tried to ask everyone in person or via phone…
The boxes are beautiful and your bridesmaids will be touched that you have made such efforts to make them feel special and want to be a part of your big day. I always like the personal touch with gifts. So if you don’t go with the picture idea, what about customizing the gift based on the persons interests (i.e. – bottle of wine, etc.)
Good luck – I think you are off to a wonderful start.

love love love this idea and am planning on doing something similar! That is my post bar exam project. Where did you find those boxes? They are lovely!
What about some personalized notecards – name or monogram? I personally love stationary/note cards and would love to open up a box with something like that in it.
