7 Easy Tips For Buying Great Bridesmaid Gifts


Your bridesmaids play a very essential role in your wedding, they are some of your closest friends and family members. As they share in your wedding day, it is important to show how much you appreciate them.

Here are 7 Easy Tips for getting your bridesmaids the perfect gifts.

  1. Decide what type of gift you are buying your bridesmaids?

Do you want it to be something for them to wear as part of the wedding or not?

Jewelry is always a nice gift idea that can be worn on the wedding day and after.

Another great gift option is to go for something more personalized, like mugs for the coffee lover or personalized flip flops so they can dance the night away.


  1.  What do you want your bridesmaids gifts to say and mean?

This is an opportunity to say t
hank you for sharing in my special day and you have always been a treasured friend in my life.
Consider something that always reminds them of the wedding and can be worn many times after the wedding day, like bridesmaids jewelry.

Or a personalized memento that means something special, like engraved messages on a keepsake.

Show that you know them and thought of something unique and personal that they would love and cherish.


  1. Allocate your budget.

Will it be the same for everyone or will you spend a little extra on your Maid of Honor – after all she has all the extra duties.

Depending on how large your bridal party is, budgets normally range between $65 to $100 per bridesmaid gift – with a little extra for maid of honor gifts.
  1. Do your research.

Create a private Pinterest board and pin all your bridesmaid gift ideas.Then you can review your gift selections for the bridal party before you purchase and make sure you are happy with your choices.


  1. Include personalized note cards.

Take the time to write a really nice heartfelt note thanking them for being a bridesmaid and letting them know how much you love them. We love these options from Etsy.

A thoughtful little extra is a framed note with a photo included of you and your bridesmaids.


  1. Wrap everything beautifully.

Get nice packaging for your gifts for bridesmaids or ask the the retailer that you purchase your gifts from if they provide gift wrapping.

There are many options available at all budgets and this shows love and attention.


  1. Ultimately show your Gratitude and Love.

Organize some time – dinner, drinks, afternoon tea – whatever your budget allows.

But do organize a special time to sit down with all your bridesmaids to give them their gifts, to share fun stories and create special moments.
