Who doesn’t go ‘aawww’ at the sight of a sweet little flower girl walking cheerily down the aisle in her gauzy dress and flower basket? Indeed, as the miniature stars of the show, flower girls certainly deserve to be applauded for their efforts. After all, it’s not easy for a child to face such a huge crowd with what they deem to be the serious task of sprinkling rose petals down the aisle. These days, the new emerging trend is to reward these adorable little girls with a gift, not unlike the customary bridesmaid present.
The good news is that it’s extremely easy to find a couple of sweet gifts for your flower girls. Kids are extremely easy to please and they’re probably going to be happy with whatever you choose to gift wrap. Still, as the adult and- more importantly- the bride, it’s your duty to present them with a memorable token that they will be able to take out in years to come and remember your special day with fondness. A piece of jewellery, for example, is exactly the sort of token that can last for decades to come.
Fortunately, the wedding market is practically brimming with jewellery options for flower girls. Whether you’re looking for a child’s ring, a locket, pendant or even a bracelet, be sure to get it engraved with your wedding date. Or, failing that, you can purchase a special ‘Flower Girl’ box from a gift shop to pack your gift. Popular options include flower girl pendants or personalized bracelets. Otherwise, why don’t you buy a collection of small, inexpensive gifts like dolls, teddies, puzzles and candies? To really wow your flower girl, don’t hesitate to put all the gifts in a single basket for a more dramatic impact.
Alternatively, consider giving your flower girl a brightly painted treasure chest with the wedding date engraved on it. Girls love treasure chests and since these can also double as jewellery boxes, you might even consider giving one to each of your bridesmaids as well! If you can afford it, however, an absolutely fabulous option would be to simply purchase flower girl dress for the little one. This will not only help her parents cut back on a few expenses, but it will also be an extremely generous gesture from your part. Couples who are trying to stick to a limited budget may gift the flower girl a pair of shoes for the wedding, instead of the dress.
