Your wedding day is the biggest day of your life – until you marry again, at least – so its important to show your bridesmaids just how much you love them. Since you’re probably forcing your bridesmaids to wear a less-than-flattering dress to begin with, you’re going to need to make it up to them with a totally awesome present.
Need some gift ideas for your bridesmaids? Well, look no further than a nice, booze-friendly flask. They can even help your bridesmaids celebrate, or forget, your special day!
A Giant Flask
Now, depending on how much you love your bridesmaids, or how much they like their “spirits,” you can always go with a shiny, giant flask as a gift. Some of the larger flasks can hold as much as 64 ounces, which should be enough liquor for even the most avid drinker. While a giant flask may be more difficult to conceal, having to constantly refill it shouldn’t be an issue, and it holds plenty of booze to pass around the sharing circle.
What’s even better is that giant flasks aren’t expensive, despite their size, and they’re a great way to show your gal pals how to enjoy life to the fullest! Size of the flask should be just above enough to get your always-a-bridesmaid cousin Mindy to walk down the aisle without shooting you hateful glances, but just under the amount that will inspire her to hit on the preacher during the ceremony.
The Girls Night Out Flask
What better way to assure your bridesmaids that you still intend to have plenty of embarrassing and party-filled nights with them then by giving them a “Girls Night Out” flask. Typically, these flasks come in a variety of fun colors, like pink, baby blue, or purple. Of course they also come with “Girls Night Out” written on them. If things get hazy, this will help remind your bridesmaids what the purpose of all this drinking originally was.
Although the “Girls Night Out” flasks are typically much smaller than the giant flasks, and often hold just six ounces, they make up for it with that nostalgic-boosting name. It’s a great way to thank your bridesmaids for their friendship and remind them that fun nights lie ahead, despite the wedding ring.
The Cell Phone Flask
If some of your bridesmaids are notorious for talking on their cell phones for too long, then the cell phone flask may be a great way to go. Or, if you’re certain they might want to use their flask as often but as discreetly as possible, then giving this flask should produce laughs as well as a deep, heartfelt thank-you.
Think about it. Having a cell phone flask will allow your bridesmaids to indulge in a little sip at a business meeting, while they wait in a long line for drinks at the club, or, depending on their relatives, at a pretentious family get together. The only dirty look they’ll get is from someone thinking they’re too busy texting or chatting. And who hasn’t had that happen by now?
Sure, drinking in this manner may not be everyone’s thing, but if you think your girls would be up for it, the cell phone flask is an outstanding gift. Due to the wonders of modern technology, which have made cell phones a third of the size they used to be, most flasks like this only hold three ounces or so. But hey, you could always buy each of your bridesmaids two flasks instead of one.
A Personalized Flask
Now, buying a personalized flask with the names of your bridesmaids engraved on it may cost a little extra, but this way they can be sure it’s theirs if they drop it or misplace it. That’s always a bonus when it comes to anything alcohol-related.
Or, you could also engrave a lovely message to your bridesmaids telling them how special they are, or even better, perhaps an inside joke. This way whenever they take a sip they’ll think of you and have a laugh.
Of course, you may also want to add the date of your wedding on the flask, or engrave a note about your wedding to commemorate the special day. Then they might remember to call you up for a drink, or two, or three, when the seven-year itch rolls around.
A MikWright Funny Flask
If your bridesmaids have a great sense of humor, then you might want to go with a MikWright Funny flask. The flasks have funny pictures, as well as hilarious one-liners written on them that take a light and sarcastic poke at drinking.
According to the company’s website, the business is the brainchild of writer Tim Mikkelsen or “Mik”, and Phyllis, a coffee critic who also goes by “Wright.” MikWright also features the work of Bob Williams, who apparently is a mutual friend of the founders.
The three of them have come up with some awesome flask sets that your bridesmaids are bound to love. For example, you could give them the flask that’s titled with “Some days it’s nice to just relax and have a cocktail. And then, other days it’s nice to just relax and have a cocktail.” Who wouldn’t like getting a flask like that?
