Help! Jewelry for Sister-in-Law Bridesmaid Gift? – Ask Emmaline

P.S. There’s a delightful giveaway inside this post! So make sure you read it + enter! #justsayin

Yesterday’s Ask Emmaline question was such a hit that our inbox got absolutely flooded with your questions! (Thanks — keep ’em coming, we love hearing from you!) Elisa wrote us with a question about picking out the perfect bridesmaid gift for her soon-to-be sister-in-law. She says,

“Dear Emmaline, I’m picking out bridesmaid gifts and I am completely stumped on one of my girls, Carrie… she’s my future sister-in-law and we’re not very close yet. We get along great, but we just haven’t really had that much time to get to know each other as much as my other bridesmaids. I want to get her a gift she will like but I don’t want to mess up on style. Do you have any suggestions for jewelry that is great for everyday wear she might like? She wears jewelry a lot so I know she likes it and mostly in silver tones (but she also wears gold sometimes). Any help for a sister-in-law gift she will love?”Elisa

Elisa, jewelry is a great gift idea! I love that you included her jewelry preference (mostly silver tones versus gold), as it makes picking out the style a lot easier — silver vs. gold is half the battle! Your email included such a sincere question and I think many brides find themselves in a similar situation. You’re picking out gifts for members of your wedding party, many of whom include family members of your spouse that will soon be a part of your family, too. But it’s not always easy to pick a gift when you aren’t as close (yet!) as you may be with other members of your wedding party. And I wholeheartedly love that you care so much about picking a gift she’ll love, which shows just how lucky she is to be gaining a new sister like you!

To help you pick the perfect versatile bridesmaid gift, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite tried-and-true jewelry pieces. If you see one that looks like her style, just click on the photo and you can find out more from the artist directly on their shop (or other similar styles by the artist who designed it). And hopefully one of these finds will be the perfect gift for Carrie. Fingers crossed we have a home-run today with one of these!

P.S. There’s a wedding giveaway in this post, too!
