It's more than just the big day when you're thinking about your bridesmaids.
These are the ladies who have had your back, celebrated your good news, gave you tissues and hugs in the sad times, and know from just a glance what you're thinking. This is your crew.
So when it's time to show your appreciation at your wedding, the gift matters.
Getting gifts for bridemaids can be the ultimate sign of appreciation and friendship around the time of your wedding.
Here are 7 gifts for bridesmaids that will make them feel like rock stars:
1) A Shawl or Wrap
This is a great option for any budget.
You have choices in fabric, colors, length, and weight. Your favorite ladies will appreciate the warmth in an air-conditioned venue or on a breezy day. Plus you can decide you want your bridesmaids to match, or wish to give them each something that reflects their personality.
2) Dancing Kit
Everyone loves the fancy heels during the ceremony, but when the music kicks on at the reception, they've got to go!
To ensure an evening of dancing late into the night, create dancing kits for your bridesmaids. Kits can include: a soft bag to hold the ceremony shoes, Chuck Taylors or another comfortable street shoe, fun socks, and band-aids, just in case the heels left a blister.
3) Who doesn't like a ring?
It is a wedding after all.
The ring is pretty much the only mandatory item. Why not spoil your best buds with a ring to symbolize your friendship? Create an account to start browsing rings as gifts for bridemaids.
And, if your budget is already tight, help them sparkle up their own rings! It's easy, inexpensive, and fun over a bottle of bubbly.
4) Mix Tape and Bubbly
It's the classic best friend gift: ake a playlist that evokes memories from all the fun you've had together.
Remember the tunes you all danced to at spring break? The song that everyone knows the words to and sings at the top of their lungs? The dramatic ballad that accompanied every love affair in college?
Put it on a USB stick (or CD if you want to go retro) and give with your favorite bottle of sparkling wine as fun gifts for bridesmaids.
5) Spa Day
Now depending on your budget, you could spring for a luxurious day at a local spa.
Or you could create a more intimate and playful affair at your home.
- music (playlist time!)
- mani-pedi items
- sparkling wine
- snacks, ranging from sweet to savory,
- rich lotions,
- robes, and
- kick it up a notch by hiring a massage therapist to come drop by for a few hours.
6) Photo Collage
You have the photos and the memories, why not create a collage for each of your special ladies? Weddings are all about relationships. A meaningful photo collage in a pretty frame will be something that bridesmaids will cherish.

7) Outings with you bridesmaids AFTER the wedding
Weddings are all about the bride and groom, of course.
But often friendships can change once you have the role of wife. Combat this trend by scheduling bi-weekly or monthly get-togethers over dinner and wine. Start a book club with the ladies who live nearby. Plan a weekend girls trip within the next 6 months.
