If you’re planning an Indian wedding, you know there are many moving parts and somewhere around 6 months out (or even earlier), you start thinking about the events with your wedding party – bridal shower and the bachelor/bachelorette, which of course leads to attire and gifts for the wedding party.
Personalized gifts are not only unique but reflect how much you care and are a wonderful way to keep the memories of the day alive. To minimize cost you can buy the same gift for all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen, but personalize them either with engraving/decor and/or with a heartfelt accompanying note.
Whether you’re shopping online or brick and mortar, there are many options – which can be overwhelming. In this article, we have shared gift ideas that you can buy and personalize online.
Some recommendations: consider transportation/travel when gifting. And gifts people can use are generally better.

We love this gift set for the fathers/father figures and even the groomsmen as it’s so useful.
