When planning your wedding, you will be putting together a team of your favourite ride-or-die comrades to make up the wedding party; AKA, the bridesmaids.

The bridesmaids are there to help you get ready, manage the wedding side of things, hold your dress up when you need to pee, and just help you have a roaring good time! With this in mind, it’s important to show them how grateful you are.

We’ve whipped up an abundant present idea list of wedding day gifts for bridesmaids to help show those cool gals you care.

Wedding Day Gifts for Bridesmaids

We get it – planning a wedding is a costly affair, as there’s so much to factor in – but every little element is important in ensuring your wedding is the best day of your life. 

Whatever your wedding budget, this list of gifts for bridesmaids will have something just right for your crew.

Bridesmaid Gift Ideas

These are just some ideas to help you spoil those special ladies on your wedding day.

Personalised Bridesmaid Robe

Getting glammed up with your bridesmaids is (arguably) the most enjoyable part of the wedding day, especially with a mimosa in hand and everyone kitted out in a wedding crew uniform!

While getting your hair and makeup done in the morning, why not treat your girls (and yourself) to a personalised bathrobe? If your wedding is in the warmer months, you can opt for a lighter fabric, like cotton or satin. If it’s an autumn/winter wedding, why not opt for something a little more snug, like fleece, cashmere, or terrycloth?

Bridesmaid Charm Bracelet

Not only does a beautiful charm bracelet make for a fabulous gift, but it can also be a nice wedding day accessory for your bridesmaids to wear.

These bracelets can be personalised, as well as having ones with charms specific to the maid of honour, mother of the bride, and flower girl.

Personalised Jewellery Box

You won’t find many gals who don’t have a soft spot for a bit of bling, so a personalised jewellery box can make a great gift for your bridesmaids.

These compact boxes are ideal for travelling, holidays, or to keep at home, and will be a beautiful reminder of your special day.

Personalised PJs

You can never have too many pyjama sets, right?! Why not start the celebrations the night before and kit your bridesmaids out in matching personalised PJs?

This gift idea also gives you the flexibility to match the pyjama colours with your wedding colours.

Custom Apothecary Candle

Candles are always a welcome gift idea, but they’re also a dime-a-dozen, so why not opt for something a little special with a personalised apothecary number?

Bonus points if you can match the candle fragrance with your wedding flowers!

Personalised Faux Leather Keychain

Gifts don’t have to cost the Earth to deliver a message of love and gratitude, and a personalised keychain (again, you can often match them with your wedding colours) make a great little ‘thank you’ for your bridesmaids on your wedding day.

Custom Makeup Bag

Makeup bags are always super useful and can double as a travel toiletry/cosmetic bag, and can be a great bridal party gift for your bridesmaids to have their items stored ready for your big day – and the customisation element just goes that extra mile to show you care!

Contemporary Sterling Silver Letter Necklace

Not only is a letter/initial necklace a classy, thoughtful gift (with that custom element that makes a truly great bridesmaid gift), but it can double as a wedding day accessory for your bridesmaids to look gorgeous and in uniform with each other.

Bridesmaid Novelty Survival Kit

Want a bridesmaid wedding favour with a funny/cheeky element? Why not go for a novelty gift idea in the form of a ‘survival kit’, which you can fill with little gifts such as sweets/chocolate, a miniature bottle of alcohol, breath mints, a gift card, and anything else you see fit?

Bride Squad Fizz

Nothing gets the party started like a bottle of bubbly, and with this custom wedding-party-designed pink champagne, you can do just that. Not only will you celebrate the first of several toasts, but you can also have a say in the wording on the bottle.

Premium Silk Satin Hair Scrunchie with Bow

If you are stumped in the gifts for bridesmaids department, as well as what accessories you want to doll out your special ladies with, why not combine the two with a silk satin hair scrunchie? With a range of colour options, you can tie the scrunchie in with your wedding hues.

Bridesmaid Socks

Socks are the underdog of the gift world, but personally, we think these cosy pink socks that say, “I can’t keep calm, I’m the bridesmaid” are a fun, cute, and practical present for your dream team.

Personalised Bridesmaid Mirror

A compact mirror makes for a classy but inexpensive gift anyway, but when you have the option to customise it with each bridesmaid’s name, it goes from being a regular compact mirror to a fabulous and thoughtful compact mirror!

Thank You Knot Earrings

A thank-you present that combines the ‘tie-the-knot’ element? Where do we sign up?! These earrings can be worn on the day and on any occasion in the future, making them an ideal gift idea.

Personalised Beach Bag

Saying “I do” on your dreamy paradise-like beach?! A customised beach bag makes a great present for the bridesmaids of a beach wedding and can be cherished for years to come. 

You can even pop a few extra little gifts into the bag, such as matching flip-flops, sunglasses, and a small bottle of bubbly.

Personalised Christmas Ornament

If you’re planning a winter/Christmas wedding, a custom tree ornament can be the perfect festive thank-you. You can opt for these silly, kid-themed ones (which are ideal for the page boy and flower girl) or something a little more swish….

Heart-Shaped Ring Dish

When it comes to wedding day gifts for bridesmaids, there are popular options that have, well, been kind of done to death, so if you’re looking for something a little different, a heart-shaped ring dish (which comes in the cutest packaging, just FYI) is just that.

Floral Initials Tote Bag

Who doesn’t love a cute tote bag?! But one with your bridesmaids’ initials on will certainly earn you extra brownie points and make your glam squad so happy they said yes to being your bridesmaids!

Engraved Hair Brush

Again, something a little different from the usual bridesmaid gift fodder, these beautiful brushes are classy, practical, and personalised. They are also plastic-free and a really good size for however long your girls’ locks are!

“I Couldn’t Tie The Know Without You” Bangle

Jewellery is always a heartfelt and appreciated gift, and jewellery that literally says how grateful you are for your girls is always going to be a winner!

Bridesmaid Champagne Glass

There’s no better way to get gussied up than with a nice glass of champers/mimosa, and these champagne flutes also make for a great keepsake.

Personalised Sunglasses

Ideal for the summer wedding, these personalised (and super cute) sunnies are a great accessory – especially when it’s time for the wedding photography portrait!

Circle of Friends Personalised Print

Want to treat your bridesmaids to something they can cherish forever? These personalised prints will look so chic on their wall at home and will be a daily reminder of your fab wedding.

Personalised Coffee Flask

We’re all modern gals here and we need our iced lattes to survive! Or at least give us that heavenly caffeine hit in the morning to get our days going….

These classy glass flasks make a fabulous bridal party gift for those coffee guzzlers in your life.

FAQs

You don’t have to spend a fortune to show your bridal crew how much you love and appreciate them. You can browse through the list of gift ideas mentioned in this article and find the perfect little treats for your wedding squad.

The exact amount you spend on your wedding day gifts for bridesmaids is entirely up to you, but do make sure you factor this aspect in when planning your wedding budget at the beginning of your preparations. 

In traditional wedding etiquette, yes, the bridesmaids would give the bride a gift during the bridal shower. 

This could be something practical she and her husband can use upon tying the knot, such as a coffee maker, or something smaller and more enjoyable, like a box of the couple’s favourite chocolates. Many modern brides appreciate a donation towards the honeymoon.

It’s not tradition that a bridesmaid would gift a present on the actual day of the wedding, but hey – it could make a sweet little surprise that the bride would no doubt love!
