Your “Bride Tribe” has been there for you through it all. Not only as a part of your wedding party, but as a friend and confidant over the years. There’s no better way to show your gal pals you appreciate them than by showering them with thoughtful gifts to say thanks for dealing with any of your bridezilla moments that may have occurred along the way. And most importantly, it’s a good way to say thanks for standing beside you while you recite your vows. Here are some Gifts Your Bridesmaids Will Actually Like:
Getting ready the morning of the wedding is the pinnacle of a bridesmaid’s career—so give her a memento for the precious quality time that is spent putting on makeup, doing each other’s hair, and, most importantly, calming you down. Matching silk bathrobes look adorable in photos and can be worn beyond the wedding morning. And who doesn’t feel luxurious wrapped in something silky? A robe is perfect to wear while prepping and pampering on the big day and beyond. Not only do they look cute for those “getting ready” photo ops, but your girls can lounge in their robes while they get their hair and makeup done.
Jewelry is the obvious yet most difficult gift to pick out. The key is to choose classic and neutral items, so stay away from colorful beads and jewels. Stick to gold, silver, pearls, and delicate pieces. Another strategy is to pick an earring, bracelet, ring, or necklace set that comes in threes or more so that your bridesmaids can all have semi-matching jewelry for the wedding. These universally loved pieces are versatile enough for everyday use—plus, they can remember you every time they wear it.
This kit has 17 beauty and personal care essentials that can help deal with any disaster you could think of. Whether it be a stain, headache, or hair mishap, this lifesaving kit will be there to rescue your bridesmaid.
Gold Knot Bracelet
Every girl loves jewelry! Thank your bridesmaids for helping you tie the knot with this classic bracelet. Its simple design makes it perfect for other occasions, even after your wedding.
This notebook will not only help keep your bridesmaids organized, but keep you relaxed. There will be no need to repeat yourself a million times. Have your bridesmaids write down all the important dates and notes in their planner.
Especially useful on the big day, shawls are ideal for bridesmaids who want more coverage in their dress. Pick out colors that already match the color scheme of the bridal party dresses so as to avoid clashing colors. A shawl is also a practical item that can be worn more casually for everyday use or for future formal events.
Have a soft spot for quirky keepsakes? Shower your bridesmaids with some fun gifts, like a bridal party–themed phone case, floral journals that match the bridal color scheme, pretty stationery, or cute jewelry cases. Go with your gut on these gifts, and pick out silly knickknacks that will have your bridesmaids laughing and cherishing the new memories you are making.
