Planning a wedding can be a very stressful (yet exciting) time. There is finding a dress, choosing wedding colors, finding cakes, building a wedding registry, looking for entertainment, and so much more. One other responsibility added to your list is finding a gift for the bridesmaids in your wedding party. For some brides, this is an easy task, but for others, it means finding a gift they’ll actually use after you get hitched. After all, you don’t want to spend your own money on a gift that will go unused after your big day. Instead, be sure to give them something useful and appreciated, so pick something from the list of bridesmaid gifts they’ll love.
1. Jewel Candle
A Jewel Candle is a great bridesmaid’s gift because it gives your bridesmaids two gifts in one. These candles include a nice piece of jewelry inside the candle your bridesmaid will get to keep once the candle has burned all the way down. This stands out more than a traditional candle because it includes and added perk inside. Plus, these candles come in a variety of scents, so you can give your bridesmaids different ones that remind you of them or stick to a theme associated with your wedding, such as something beachy for a destination wedding or something holiday-esque for a winter wedding.
2. Makeup Bag
Your bridesmaids are going to get all dolled up for your big day, so why not make it easier on them to carry all their makeup with a new makeup bag. You can opt to give them a bag that is the same colors as your wedding colors, or you can even have them monogrammed to add a little something extra to the bags. Either way, you can rest assured the bridesmaids in your wedding will really appreciate having a simple way to carry all their makeup around for your big day (and even long after too).
Many brides opt to give their bridesmaids jewelry as a way to say thank you for standing up with them on their big day. What makes jewelry a great choice is that the bridesmaids can easily wear these pieces long after the wedding is over, so be sure to choose something that can complement a variety of styles. Plus, you have your choice of jewelry pieces to gift, such as necklaces, bracelets, or earrings. And you can opt to give every bridesmaid the same gift or you can mix and match the jewelry to complement each individual.
4. Personalized Glasses
Glasses are a great gift because it’s something practical and personalizing it will make your bridesmaid feel special about the gift you are giving. There are plenty of websites that allow you to purchase a personalized glass, and you can even find one that matches your wedding colors to make it extra special. Plus, you have your choice of type of glass to choose. You can opt for a coffee mug, a wine glass, a tumbler, a beer pint, or anything that will make your bridesmaid feel special.
Totes are another great choice of bridesmaid gift because it’s something practical that can be used both on your wedding day and then long after. You can opt to give them a generic tote that matches their style or your wedding theme, or you can have the totes customized with their name, the date of your wedding, their role in your wedding, or whatever else you may want to have on the tote. Again, your bridesmaids will love the gift that’s practical and that can be used well after your wedding day is over.
6. Customized Coasters
Your bridesmaids will likely use coasters after your wedding day is over, so why not consider having customized coasters made for your squad? These coasters can be customized with almost anything you want, such as their name or something that’s personal between you and the bridesmaid. Custom coasters can also come in different styles and types, such as wood or stone, so you can easily find something that matches your bridesmaids’ personalities or their specific taste. Plus, this is a great gift to give along with a personalized glass or other gift.
Finding a gift for your bridesmaids is an important way to say thank you to the people who mean most to you in your life, and you can easily find something they’ll love from the list of items above.
