Your girlfriends have always and will always be there for you.
Remember how they offered unconditional support and a shoulder to cry on during your first big breakup? Or the time they lent their time and energy during those late-night study sessions in college? Those same group of friends, of course, will be there for you on your big day, too.
As your wedding day fast approaches, show your best girls just how much you appreciate them with a thoughtful gift. Here are eight unique gift ideas for your bridesmaids.
1. Delicate Jewelry
Whether it’s delicate stud earrings or a dainty charm necklace, fine jewelry always makes for a fabulous bridesmaid gift. While you might want to give everyone in your bridal party a similar gift, there’s no rule that says every gift has to be uniform. Choose delicate pieces that include each friends’ birthstone or choose a delicate piece in their favorite precious metal; think gold, rose gold, or sterling silver.
2. Personalized Gifts
A little personalization can go a long way. In fact, personalized gifts like photo art, custom stationery, or a custom photo calendar that includes all your favorite memories together are sure to show your gal pals just how much you appreciate the love and support they’ve shown you throughout the years.
3. Self-Care Set
Self-care is huge right now. Whether there are wedding bells in your future or not, we’re all collectively moisturizing, applying sunscreen, and taking care of our skin. In that vein, pick out a pampering self-care kit packed with goodies to keep them glowing, long after your big day has come and gone.
4. Weekender Bag
During your wedding week, you and your girls will be on the go. And a weekender bag not only makes for a fun gift, but it’s quite practical, too. These totes can keep all your bridesmaids’ essentials in one place, from here to there. And, the gals in your bridal party who love to travel will be able to use this gift again and again after your nuptials, too.
5. Custom Candles
Toast to your friendship with a custom candle. With a burn time of 60-80 hours, these candles will keep the celebration alive well after the reception wraps. And with top notes of mandarin, grapefruit, and orange, this non-toxic, soy wax blend custom candle is sure to delight just about anyone’s senses.
6. Comfortable Robes
Sometimes you just need to kick back and relax — and what better gift to encourage a little bit of R&R than a comfortable, cozy robe? In the lead-up to your wedding ceremony, your girlfriends can wear their robes while you all get ready together. Plus, these matching floral robes will make for incredible photos.
7. Custom Charcuterie Board
Everyone loves a good charcuterie board, so send your bridesmaids a custom charcuterie package with all their favorite meats, cheeses, jams, and spreads. Opt for a package that includes a wood charcuterie board to make this an even more memorable gift.
8. Gifted Experiences
Giving experiences as gifts is becoming more popular for couples. But it’s not just for the wedding couple. For the girls who have everything, consider the gift of an experience. Whether you give her tickets to see her favorite musician or a sports team or give her an activity like skydiving or snorkeling lessons, she’ll undoubtedly love it.
Thoughtfulness Goes a Long Way
Your bridesmaids have always been there for you, so show your appreciation with a thoughtful gift. From personalized photo art to once-in-a-lifetime experiences, these gift ideas will certainly make her day and then some.
