Is your love language gift-giving? Do you want to spoil your friends with lovely gifts? What if we told you that the gifts you choose can actually make for some seriously cute wedding photos? That’s what we call a win-win situation. Toss out the generic gift ideas you’ve seen on Pinterest, and let us guide you to thoughtful bridesmaid gift ideas your ‘maids will surely love. 

Bridesmaid Gift Ideas

Minimalistic Overnight Bags for the Getting Ready Room

Why we love them: Clutter in the “getting ready room” is distracting. It’s hard to get ready around, and you’ll cringe seeing it all when you get those photos back. We know your ‘maids need their things, so make it a little easier on the eyes with a simple bag. Bonus: They’ll totally use it again.

Tumblers to Stay Hydrated All Day Long

Why we love them: Hydration is incredibly important on your wedding day. Go the sustainable—and photo-friendly—route by gifting your crew these personalized tumblers. Slip them a Liquid IV packet to help with those next-day feelings, too.

Super Cute Heart-Shaped Sunglasses

Why we love them: Your bridal party will love posing with these super cute heart-shaped sunnies. Wear them while you get ready, have your photographer stash them away for bridesmaid photos, and—most importantly—rock them on the dance floor.

Denim Jackets to Wear for a Chilly Reception Forecast 

Why we love them: If you’re planning a wedding in fall or winter, the chilly weather should be on your mind. To keep your closest friends warm, gift your bridesmaids matching (or thoughtfully mismatched) jackets to wear during the reception. Trust us, they’ll look much better than they would if they stole coats from the groomsmen.

PJs that are Totally More Comfortable than a Robe

Why we love them: While we do love a cute bridesmaid robe, they really aren’t the most practical option. You don’t want to forever remember the time they accidentally flashed the camera while sitting, bending, or jumping with excitement because their best friend is getting married. Plus, if you’re having bridesmen they’ll appreciate the ability to match with similar pajama styles.

Marble Personalized Compact Mirror

Why we love them: It’s expensive to be a bridesmaid these days—hair, make-up, nails, and all the money spent primping to look lovely for the big day. Help your pals check their looks with totally chic compact mirrors. Beautiful and functional—what’s not to love?

Matching Koozies for their Beverage of Choice

Why we love them: Do we have any seltzer fans in the house? These koozies are custom-made for Truly and White Claw lovers. Bonus: Get them customized so there are no drink mix-ups through the night. 

Custom Engraved Personalized Can Cooler

Leather Saddle Bags for Their Smaller Items

Why we love them: It makes sense that Portland Leather bags are known for their gorgeous leather, but did you know that each piece has slightly unique qualities? This makes them perfect for your group gift for your bridal party. They’ll also be able to use it for years to come.

Scrunchies for When the Dance Floor Gets Hot

Why we love them: If epic dance parties are your thing, pull your hair back and get into it! Even if your bridesmaids choose not to put their hair up, these scrunchies make fun arm candy during the reception. Bonus: If you’re having a micro wedding you can place a bulk order and offer different colors to get your guests in on the fun. 

To Have and to Hold Your Hair Back Scrunchies
