Q. We want to say thank you to our bridesmaids with something that will remind them of the big day. What can you suggest?

A. Chloe Gabbitas-Powls says: For a thoughtful gift to say thank you to your bridal party, we'd recommend a personalised gift box. Hand pick the items you'd like to fill the box with, whether it be the natural skin care products we have at Soak Box or contemporary living items. Stick with products that are natural, vegan, organic and cruelty free and suitable for any skin type to bring a smile to everyone's faces. You could even include a candle fragranced with your big day's signature scent.

It's also great to personalise your box with a message of thanks for your bride tribe and tie in a ribbon of their favourite hue or even your wedding's colour palette.

Q. I'd love to buy my bridesmaids a gift that they can wear on the big day to go with their dresses, but I also want it to be something they can treasure forever. What do you suggest?

A. Francesca Kippax says: I'd suggest opting for a timeless design, something that can be worn every day like a bangle or dainty necklace; a piece that doesn't overshadow their dresses but adds a subtle elegance. Personalised jewellery can make an incredibly sentimental gift. I can engrave a short message, or I've even created bespoke charms that can carry a meaning for each of your besties. These options don't have to break the bank either; I offer a free letter-punching service with our bangles.

Another idea would be going along to a jewellery-making workshop. Ours are a great excuse to all get together and have a great time crafting your own bespoke ring, charm necklace or earrings for the big day and beyond.
