Load the gift boxes or bags up with self-care goodies like eye masks, lotions, bath salts, mini candle tins, pumice stones, and cozy slippers. If you have the budget to splurge a little, add something extra special, like a monogrammed compact mirror or cozy robe.

6. Gift Card

Want to let your bridesmaids pick out their gifts? Offer gift cards to their favorite store, restaurant, or online retailer. Choose an amount that fits your budget and make sure to include a message to express your appreciation. For a convenient bridesmaid gift-giving experience, consider using Greenvelope.

8. Colorful and Chic Bridesmaid Water Bottles 

Give your bridesmaids a practical gift they’ll use every day with these colorful water bottle tumblers from Etsy.

On the morning of the wedding, you’ll be getting ready with your bridesmaids and preparing to walk down the aisle to the love of your life.

Add a monogram to make this a unique bridesmaid gift — or use it as a bridal shower favor so they have it ready to go before the wedding day.

11. Birdy Grey Monogrammed Pajama Set

One of the most popular bridesmaid gifts is matching, personalized pajama sets. Birdy Grey bridesmaid PJs come in dozens of styles so you can choose one for your bridesmaid’s personality — whether she loves glam accents or cozy cotton jammies. Complete the set with a monogrammed sleep mask and cozy slippers. Your bridesmaids will love lounging in them during the wedding weekend and for years to come.

12. An Experiential Gift

If you can afford the expense and have the time, consider taking your bridesmaids on a girls’ weekend getaway. If that’s too much, consider a day trip or a fun night out. Hike through a local trail (bonus: you can work out some of that nervous energy!), take part in a yoga session together, see a play that’s coming through town, or book your spots at a paint-and-sip class. 

If you’re planning a destination wedding, arrange to arrive early and spend a day or two before the wedding with just your bridesmaids. Alternatively, you can plan a trip later in the year to relax and unwind together. Remember — no matter how big or how small, an experiential gift is one that creates memories you’ll always treasure. 

13. Personalized Beach Bag

Contemporary Waves Invitation

Design: Claudia Owen

If your bridesmaids love sand and sun, give them personalized beach bags. Featuring nautical stripes and rope accents, these totes are the perfect addition to a beach day, pool party, or warm-weather vacay. 

Choose from more than a dozen embroidery thread colors to monogram the initials of your bridesmaids. If you can swing it, fill the bags with beach essentials like sunblock, lip balm, flip flops, and a sun hat.

14. Holly Emily Designs Bridesmaid Trinket Dish

Jewelry and trinket dishes make great wedding party favors, bridesmaid proposal gifts, and bridesmaid gifts.
