There were few parts of wedding planning that I threw myself into as hard as I did wedding party gifts. I know they are a superfluous aspect of wedding planning, and your wedding party doesn’t necessarily need gifts to say thank you for being our friends, but after all our people did for us leading up to the wedding, we really wanted a way to show our appreciation. The thing is, our friends aren’t exactly matching jewelry and cuff links kind of people (in our case, we ended up squirreling away gift cards for months and buying bath robes and belts for our respective parties. Because everybody loves a plushy bath robe. It’s like being hugged by a cloud.)
So today we bring you a roundup full of gender neutral wedding party gifts that also happen to be pretty damn rad. Because maybe you’ve got a bridesdude or a groomswoman and still want to get everybody matching gifts. Or maybe your people aren’t jewelry people either. Maybe your people are whisky-swigging, Harry-Potter-loving skillionaires. In other news, I now have a dozen new gifts I’d like to buy myself.
