Choosing what to get each of my bridesmaids, personal attendants, and flower girls for my weddings was actually really fun for me, and I loved gifting a few things that I knew I would enjoy to them. My girls are so special to me, so I wanted to make sure they knew that on my wedding day. Etsy is one of the best places to get things like this, but you can also find so many great ideas at Target, Hobby Lobby, etc. if you don’t like shopping online.
Before I start sharing all my ideas, there are three things that aren’t “items” that you can gift your bridesmaids that they will LOVE. Professional hair, professional makeup, and manicures/pedicures. Consider gifting them one of these things just so that it’s one less thing they have to cover themselves. They are already most likely covering a bridesmaid dress and a wedding gift, so show your love and appreciation. I gifted professional hair to my bridesmaids, and all of my friends gifted one of those three too; I know that each time, everyone appreciated it!
This is what I gifted to all of my bridesmaids and my mom! I knew it would be fun to have matching robes to get ready in, they would look great in pictures, and they would be easy to take off with our hair and makeup done! I STILL wear mine all the time!
There are also options other than the robe! Shirt and shorts or a long button-down would be cute as well!
Think of things that you will want your bridesmaids to actually wear for the wedding, like jewelry, matching shoes, hair piece, etc. and consider gifting it to them! It’s one less thing they have to purchase, and it will make it easier for everyone! Instead of earrings, you could do a necklace and/or a bracelet!
Bridesmaids dresses never come on cute hangers, so if you want that pretty shot of all the dresses hanging with your dress, consider gifting these!
If you’re getting married in the early spring, fall or winter months, a pashmina scarf is a perfect addition to everyone’s outfits. It helps keep them warm for photos, and still looks elegant and cohesive! There’s tons of different colors other than white, but choose something that goes well with the dresses, bouquets, and suits!
I also got each of my girls (and flower girls!) a makeup bag, and I’m kicking myself now for not ordering myself one! It’s something they’ll use forever!
A ring dish is something I feel I would use all the time, and I wonder if I’m not the only one! I’m always taking my rings off to go workout and some even take them off to shower or clean, so it would be so convenient to have something to quickly set them in – that way they’re not setting out on my dresser waiting to get knocked off! You could also put earrings and other jewelry in it as well!
If ya’ll are having champagne, you might need these anyways!
Don’t be afraid to brainstorm your own ideas and get creative. If you don’t want to gift any items, you could create an evening out, get dinner, and spend time together! There’s so many more ideas than just these, but this is a good place to start!
