It’s not technically required to give your bridesmaids any cool bridesmaid gifts, but most brides do, anyway. After all, your bridesmaids are setting aside this time in their lives to attend to you during your big day. And while that is the only real requirement of bridesmaids in Western culture, bridesmaids also often buy their own dresses, plan and attend bachelorette parties and bridal showers, and spend time helping plan the wedding down to the most minute detail. They’re there for meltdowns and breakdowns and sob-fests and laughter and everything in between. Your bridesmaids are there for you, so it’s only natural you want to give them a little something special to show your thanks and love for them and their commitment to you, while you make the biggest commitment of your life.
Showing a little love to your girls is only natural, right? Here are the most inspired ways to do so:
These beautiful personalized compacts. So fresh, so lovely, available in a wide variety of colors or a floral pattern, with a choice of three different metallic finishes. Every woman needs a compact; the one your girls tote around can beautifully furnish a mirror at a moment’s notice and remind them of the sweet moments you had together on your big day.
Personalized Satin Getting Ready Robes
These robes are so luxe, soft and cushy you may not want to get into your dress after all. Don’t worry, that’s where your bridesmaids come in. Why not thank them with personalized satin getting ready robes for each name and/or role in the wedding?
Personalization pro tip: Make your cool bridesmaid gifts even more exclusive by using a tagline or catch phrase that’s significant to you, or the title of a favorite movie or your girl gang name (e.g. Roxy’s Roustabouts, Catch-Me-If-U-Can, American Beauty!)
Personalized Tote Bags
Who ever has enough tote bags? Not this girl. Personally, I’m a big fan of the Watercolor Floral Tote myself, but there are so many options to choose from. A tote bag is just the thing that your bridesmaid is guaranteed to use again and again after the big day. She’ll love you for picking out this thoughtful, sweet gift.
By “wearables,” we mean t-shirts, tank tops and hoodies, of course, all available for personalization to make your bridal party favors your own. If you want to see her wear it again (Sam) after your big day, tune into that pro tip I mentioned earlier and have the personalization rendered in a catch phrase or inside joke. That way she’ll want to wear it again and again and again.
How do you make a nice pen really stand out? Stick a big ol’ rock on the end of it. These diamond pens make fun, chill gifts for any member of the bridal party or, if you’re feeling adventurous, see if you can sneak a few into the groomsmen’s supplies too. The look on their faces! These pens can come with or without a gift box.
Metallic Foil Travel Coffee Mug
I ask you, what is this world without coffee? I’m not sure it even exists, to be honest. These metallic foil travel mugs are the perfect vessel for schlepping around some post-bachelorette party brew, or just getting your fix on the daily. They of course have the option to be personalized for each member of the bridal party. Coffee all around!
Stemless Wine Glass
If you’re looking for a quick gift to pick up, this is the one for you. Toast the final days of your single life with your gals and raise the glass to your future as Mrs. This “Last Fling Before The Ring” Stemless Wine Glass is a perfect gift for the bride on-the-go to show her attendants that while she is busy, she does still love them immensely.
