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.
