OUR FAVORITE BRIDESMAID GIFT IDEAS

There are so many options for bridesmaid gifts, why not make sure your bridesmaid will actually use them? Our quick list of bridesmaid gift ideas is perfect for getting you started with proposing to your bridesmaids or giving them thank you gifts for after the big day.

PAJAMAS + ROBES

Pajamas and robes are the perfect bridesmaid gift idea! They are great for wearing to the bachelorette party, wedding day, and even after the wedding.

To make the clothing last longer for your bridesmaids, avoid putting words like “bridesmaid” or “bride tribe” on them. This will date the clothing. Opt for monograms, names, or other fun quotes to make them more long-lasting.

WINE + CHAMPAGNE

Mini Bottle Labels by Simple & Sentimental

You can’t go wrong with wine and champagne as bridesmaid gifts! Putting a decorative label on it makes it even better. Whether it’s a mini-bottle of chardonnay or full-size bottle champagne, it’s an easy gift to pickup at the store and is sure to please.

CUSTOM DRINKWARE

Personalized wine tumblers, coffee mugs, champagne glasses, or other fun drinkware items are great bridesmaid gifts. You can choose to include their title on the item like in the photo above, or you can opt to leave it off!

HOMEMADE DESSERTS

A cost-effective and sentimental gift option for bridesmaid gifts are homemade desserts! Brownies, cookies, cake, or your favorite family recipe can be a great option for proposing to your bridesmaids.

Wrap each of the desserts and attach a simple label saying “Will you be my bridesmaid?” or “Thank you for being my bridesmaid!”

POTTED PLANTS

This option is great for girls with a green thumb. Give them a gift that will grow with them! Small potted plants are relatively inexpensive and can serve as a unique bridesmaid gift.

Attach a small tag reading “I can’t say I do without you” to make the gift feel more wedding-inspired, or give them their favorite flower to make it personalized!

FRAMED PHOTO

Nothing says meaningful like a framed photo of you and your soon-to-be bridesmaid! Cherish your past memories while you ask her to join you on your big day.

The best part about a framed photo is that she can keep it for years to come! It works great as home decor. This gift is extra-sentimental if you have an old photo of the two of you.
