How to Create the Perfect  Maid of Honour Proposal Gift 

maid of honour proposal
So, you’re officially engaged—congratulations! As you begin planning your wedding, you've probably started thinking about who you want by your side on the big day. The next question is: how are you going to pop the question, “Will you be my maid of honour?”
There are many beautiful and personal ways to show one of the most important women in your life how much you love and appreciate her. In this journal article, we share our favourite items to include in a maid of honour proposal box that we know she’ll love.
Last year, we launched our Bridesmaid & Maid of Honour Proposal gift boxes, and they’ve quickly become one of our bestsellers. The collection is inspired by wildflowers, the beauty of British summer time, and the gentleness of female friendship. We found that maid of honour gifts can often be hot pink or contain excessive plastic. We wanted to create a proposal gift that feels much more delicate and natural. You can explore our Bridesmaid & Maid of Honour Proposal gift boxes, or have fun creating your own MOH gift box, including some of our top picks highlighted in this gift guide.
Make sure to check out our Instagram reel, where we talk more about the story behind our bridal party gift collection.

Something to Keep - A Handmade Hair Scrunchie

handmade hair scrunchie by sister scrunch

We collaborated with sisters Maddie & Bianca, Founders of Sister Scrunch, to create an oversized hair scrunchie collection inspired by the traditional bridesmaid dress colours: burnt orange, blush pink, navy blue and sage green. We fell in love with Sister Scrunch’s creations - each scrunchie is inspired by a place or person and each design has its own name. In this collection, we have Athena, Isla, Juliet, and Celine.

These scrunchies are perfect for your Maid of Honour proposal box, as they can tie in beautifully with the colour scheme of your wedding. They are perfect for using while getting ready pre-wedding and can even be used as an accessory on your wedding day.

Sister Scrunch celebrates sisterhood and female friendship - making their scrunchies the perfect sentiment and gift for your maid of honour. Take a look at our bridal party oversized hair scrunchie collection. If you're interested in learning more about Maddie & Bianca, you can also read our interview with Sister Scrunch.

Other everlasting gifts to consider would be a silk sleep mask, crafted by Handmade by Natski. Or a mini dried flower bouquet, grown and dried in Somerset by Nice Bunch.

Aromatherapy Symbolising Love & Romance - A Candle or Room Spray

Aromatherapy Symbolising Love & Romance - A Candle or Room Spray

We love using essential oils to create a certain mood or vibe in our gift bundles. Floral essential oils like lavender, ylang-ylang, bergamot, may chang, rose absolute, and neroli all inspire gentleness, compassion, tender love, and adoration.

This winning scent combo symbolises your wedding, as well as your love for your best friend or sister. You could include a "Tranquil" aromatherapy room spray, hand poured by Sarah, Founder of Manchester Home & Living. This room spray is a deeply grounding blend of rose and patchouli.

Another floral infused option would be a Midnight Breeze candle by OCTO. This aromatherapy candle combines the sweet scents of rose geranium with the earthy shades of patchouli, and woodsy vetiver. It smells like an enchanted rose garden at midnight - so dreamy! 

A Heartfelt Note - A Maid of Honour Proposal Card

We teamed up with the wonderful Lucy March Studios to create these bespoke maid of honour proposal cards, reading “I can’t say I do without you, will you be my maid of honour?”

When creating your own maid of honour proposal box, you have the option of leaving a gift message at checkout. We can handwrite this message on the reverse of your proposal card, or leave the card open for you to write yourself.

Something to Celebrate With - Edible Wildflower Confetti

We teamed up with Paper Knots and Polly’s Petals to create these delicate confetti bags, filled with edible wildflower petals.

We recommend presenting your proposal gift with a glass of fizz or cocktail. Your maid of honour can then ceremoniously sprinkle the petals over her drink before you toast to your friendship and marriage. 

Some Self-Care Products - Wildflower infused Bath & Body Essentials

At Bundle & Beau, we are all about all-natural, handmade self-care products. We were inspired by wildflower petals for this collection, so we suggest a Flower Child Facial Steam by Salt + Steam and a Bloom lip balm by Nathalie Bond. You could also add some Wildflower Bath Salts hand-poured by Botanical Bloom.

Following the theme of love, a bar of Amelie soap would be a great addition. A blend that promotes self-love, infused with rose and ylang-ylang essential oils. Handmade in South London by Vely Soapery.

Something Sweet - Delicious Artisan Chocolate

We also suggest adding a bar of artisan chocolate - because no gift is complete without chocolate, right? To continue the theme of summer, you could add a Passion Fruit Dark Chocolate Bar or a Rhubarb & Ginger Milk Chocolate Bar - both absolutely delicious! Alternatively, pop in a mini chocolate bar by LAND or Coco Chocolatier.
