A hen do wouldn’t be perfect without the right gifts and souvenirs, not just for the bride, but for the party-goers as well. If you’ve been tasked with organizing a hen do, you’re certainly under a lot of pressure to make sure everything goes exactly according to plan. But planning the perfect hen do involves not just planning the activities and events, but also making sure you have the right gifts. Here, then, is your all-important guide to some top hen do gifts and souvenirs.
For the bride
The bride is unarguably the most important person in the hen do, so it follows that you need to come up with just the right gift that suits the occasion. One sure gift which any bride is certain to appreciate is lingerie. The bride is about to become a wife, after all, and she’ll need some beautiful lingerie for her wedding night (and all the other nights that will follow!). If you are close to the bride, you can choose to give her lingerie as a gift, so she can take it on her honeymoon – and if you’re not sure about colours or sizes, you can always get her a gift voucher.
Another great gift for the bride is a scrapbook. You can present a scrapbook which showcases and records all the important and funny moments in her life, such as baby photos, photos of you together, photos of her and her groom-to-be, and even letters from all her hen do participants as well as her parents. It will definitely be a gift that she can treasure. Other great gifts for the bride include gift certificates for a day at the spa or salon, a wedding calendar, and more.
For the ladies
The ladies at the hen do will certainly appreciate some great gifts and souvenirs as well. Jewellery, for one, is always a great choice, and it doesn’t have to be in solid gold. You can pick up some cute, stylish jewellery online – a simple trinket which can remind everyone of the hen do and thank everyone for coming.
Another beautiful gift would be wine glasses which are customised. They’re all the rage today because let’s face it – who doesn’t want to have her own special wine glass with her name embossed or covered in glitter?
When it comes to ladies’ hen do gifts, another wonderful idea is a hen party survival kit. You can fill the kit with everything the guests need to essentially ‘survive’ the hen party, from lip balm to band-aids to bottled water, deodorant, hair clips, and paracetamol and give the kit out at the beginning of the event.
But if you want something truly unique and memorable, there’s another gift idea which can really bring the hen do to another level: a hen do life drawing souvenir. Hen do life drawing classes are also a big hit nowadays, and this is where the guests and the bride can draw and paint a gorgeous model from life. These drawing classes even come with a butler service as well as drinks, and the session also includes games and tips and a lot of fun.
