Finding the perfect bridesmaid gifts is not always easy, and finding ones that are cheap to boot is even harder. The perfect bridesmaid gift is one that makes the bridesmaid feel good, is something she likes and can use and isn't something she's seen before, Unfortunately, most of those things are too expensive to buy for everyone.
1 Forget about making your own bridesmaids gifts, or finding them for cheap in Walmart, Target or any other big name retail goliath. You will end up spending way too much looking for the right gifts amidst the aisles and aisles of laundry detergent, car tires, baked beans, and hunting gear.
2 Narrow your options to a few low-priced, alternatives. Most of these stores you may find online. They cater to weddings, and have been down this road (or aisle) before themselves. So, they already know what you are looking for and they've made shopping for it easier. These stores include PhotoFramesPlus.com, and FavorAffair.com, among others.
3 Surf to these stores and check out their bridesmaid or wedding gifts section. Each one has a range of unique gifts that are made just for this niche in the market. They are relatively cheap, but they don't look cheap and they can be personalized too.
4 Find something unique and useful. Unique and useful items that can make great bridesmaid gifts are also not always the most expensive. Things like rubber stamps, or simple crystal statues are thoughtful enough to be appreciated. They can also be engraved so they will be unique to your ceremony.
5 Buy in bulk to save money. Buying items in larger quantities means getting a larger discount. Always shop those stores that offer bulk discount pricing. Most stores will list the discount schedule right below the item if a volume discount applies.
6 Find free engraving. If you are considering having something engraved to make it more personal, choose items that offer free engraving. Most specialty stores offer free engraving on some items. Photoframesplus.com offers free engraving on many bridesmaid gifts, but a few others might not offer this service.
