Bridesmaid Gift: Like Sisters

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

Now that I’ve talked about the fact that I think expensive bridesmaid gifts are overrated, I’m going switch it up and show you my favorite bridesmaid gift of all time:
This necklace is inlaid with drops of silver representing the seven sisters constellation. For the girls that are like sisters to you. Awwww….

If you want to get them jewelry, get them something like this. Personal, handcrafted, lovely.

Sisterhood pendant by Blue Poppy Jewelry, another kick *ss idea via Mighty Goods.
