Your bridesmaids are the ones who have been with you through it all- the wedding shopping, the tantrums, the sangeet practices, the bridezilla moments, the I'm-going-to-have-to-live-with-a-boy moments and everything in between and they deserve the very best. You guys have been thick for so many years and have probably discussed this moment umpteen times.
Remember when you sat in school and were convinced that you were going to marry your first boyfriend and even took out FLAMES at the back of your notebook? Well, they were right there with you. They heard about your first date with your fiancé and have probably heard the proposal story a hundred times- they're the true unsung heroes of the shaadi.
Once your bride tribe list has been finalised and the bachelorette trip has been planned, giving them a little something for the amount they've done for you is a great idea. Bridesmaid boxes with tidbits thrown in and personalised notes telling them that they mean the world to you can make them feel super special.
From brands who make personalised boxes to ideas on what you can put inside, here is everything you need to know about creating the perfect bridesmaid box.

Comfortable slippers that would keep your besties warm and happy would be a great thing to add to the box. The only thing you've to be careful is if the box is big enough to accommodate these.
