For many months throughout our engagement, I was on the hunt for the perfect gifts for my fabulous bridesmaids, and I wanted to share some of my finds with you all, as you very well might be on the hunt, too! My bridesmaids, eleven of my closest friends in the world, are so incredibly special to me, and I wanted to show my love, appreciation, and gratitude to them. I loved getting to celebrate how incredible, encouraging, generous, and thoughtful my bridesmaids have been throughout the years. They are truly the best of the best!
Most any bride-to-be has heard of the dreamy floral robes from Plum Pretty Sugar, and their robes (so many styles and patterns!) are the perfect accessory to get ready in the morning of your wedding. Speaking of the morning of your wedding morning and getting ready with your best girls… you can’t forget the mimosas to properly toast to your wedding day! Champagne from Le Grand Courtage (I always love rosé!) or white wine from Speak Wines are two favorites: not only are their labels and packaging both beautiful and occasion-appropriate, but most any bridesmaid would love to be gifted a bottle or mini-bottle of champagne or wine. And with mimosas, you can’t forget the toasting flutes! Naturally Chic Gifts, based out of Raleigh (!), creates personalized champagne flutes (I’m a fan of the stemless ones!) and wine glasses in an array of metallic colors for your best girls.
I also have long loved the adorable, tiny Minimergency Bridesmaid Kits from Pinch Provisions, which hold everything you’d ever need for a wedding-day snafu. How convenient and handy would this gift be? And, of course, one of the most popular bridesmaid gifts is jewelry for the wedding day, like matching earrings or a necklace that complements her bridesmaid dress perfectly. I love finding local stores to get jewelry from, and Moon and Lola is a Raleigh favorite! The best way to beautifully hold your bridesmaid gifts is in a pretty bag, like this Hello Lovely tote from PCB Home, all tied up with a pretty ribbon!
And, above all else, a card with a handwritten note expressing your thanks and love is the most important part. Taking the time to write a thoughtful note (to your soon-to-be spouse, your parents, your wedding party, and even vendors) is paramount!
I shared another list of favorite bridesmaid gifts on my blog a few years ago, if you need some more inspiration or ideas!
If you’re a bride-to-be or a former bride, please share your favorite gifts for bridesmaids! I’m always on the hunt for new resources to recommend and beloved products that you love! Plus, I love seeing creativity shine through when it comes to gifting.
