Finding the perfect gift to thank your bridesmaids and maid of honor can be a daunting task. But have no fear, after much deliberation with fellow party planners, we've put together our top 10 list of bridesmaid gifts.
Nothing says that all of your bridesmaids need to receive the same gift so you have plenty latitude to choose gifts tailored to the likes and dislikes of each woman. That said, you don't want one to receive a lavish expensive keepsake while another receives an engraved key chain. The best bridal party gifts are the ones that suit the tastes of each woman and come straight from your heart.
Here are some stylish bridesmaid gift ideas to inspire you during your search for memorable items to thank those that are a part of your special wedding day.
#1 Luxurious Pajamas or Robes
Giving each of the girls a pair of silk pajamas in their favorite color or a big white fluffy bath robe that is embroidered with their monogram is a great way to say thanks.
Nothing feels better against the skin or drapes as beautifully as a pair of luxurious silk pajamas. So we are sure that any woman would love getting a pair of soft and silky pajamas. The patterns and styles available should suit just about any taste.
#2 Personalized Photo Frame
Many online gift companies sell photo frames that can be engraved or imprinted with your personal message to the bridesmaid. Frame finishes range from silver plated to wood to paper mache and more. It's the ultimate Bridesmaid Gift.
She'll love receiving a frame filled with a photo of you and her either on the wedding day or during another fun time that you've shared together. Keep in mind that if you are giving a wedding day photo, it may be weeks after the event before she receives her gift. So if you have a fun photo of the two of you from the bachelorette party or other event, consider using that photograph so that you can give her this unique bridesmaid gift before or on the big day.
They offer a wide array of products including full letter ensembles, folded notecards, embossed note cards, and personalized memo pads. Be sure to consider the personality and style of the bridesmaid when you choose the pattern or color of her stationery gift.
#4 Movie Entertainment
You have several options when it comes to giving her an entertaining movie gift. Depending on your budget, you could consider a 6 or 12 month subscription to movie-by-mail companies such as Netflix or Blockbuster. Another less expensive idea would be to give a gift card to the local movie theater in her area. Finally, you could make a movie gift basket that includes her favorite movies, popcorn and movie theater sized candy all in a fun personalized popcorn bowl. Alternatively, you can buy a movie theme gift basket online that includes a movie gift card as well as other goodies to enjoy with a movie.

#5 Beautiful Jewelry
Giving your bridesmaids some personalized jewelry that they can wear on the wedding day is a long-held tradition for many brides. After all, jewelry is a great gift and this is an easy way to make sure all of the bridesmaids coordinate perfectly on your wedding day.
However if you want to make it more personal, consider giving them an personalized piece such as a friendship bracelet that is engraved with their initial or monogram. They are much more likely to wear something like a bracelet long after your special day is over.
#6 Bridal Party T-Shirts
Giving your bridesmaids fun matching t-shirts that they can wear to the bachelorette party and even the rehearsal can be a fun gift idea.
You can buy wedding party shirts with the same style and design for all the women involved in the wedding, but with different bridal captions such as bride, bridesmaid, matron of honor, mother of the groom, mother of the bride, flower girl, etc. What a great way to unify the look of your bridal party and a keepsake to show your appreciation.
#7 Personalized or Designer Make-Up Bag
All of us ladies know that make-up bags need to be replaced, but we often don't get around to it in a timely manner. Giving your bridesmaids a beautiful silk or cotton make-up bag that is embroidered with their name, initial or monogram is a fabulous idea that will be well received.
We sell personalized cosmetic bags in a wide array of colors and price points (some even at starting at $4). We have bags with zipper pulls that can be customized with the words Thank You or a color/theme to match your wedding as well.
#8 Personalized Tote Bag
Personalized tote bags are fabulous gifts that your bridesmaids can use to carry around all the necessities on the wedding day, but best of all, they can use them again and again for years to come.
Some tote bags carry a 'bride' or 'bridesmaid' caption, but most stylish tote bags can be embroidered with the person's name, monogram or initial. Another option are insulated coolers or travel bags that can usually be personalized as well. Be sure to consider the favorite color and style of the recipient when making this gift choice.
#9 Anything You Make Yourself
If you are crafty and you know that your bridesmaid will appreciate the gift, it may be a good idea to take the time to make them something. Things like knit scarves, hand-made jewelry, candles, spa gift baskets that include things like bath salts and bubble bath, or a personalized poem are all great ideas.
It may take more time, but a scrapbook of memories featuring you and the rest of the bridal party is a great idea as well. This is a memorable keepsake that they can cherish for years.
#10 Engraved Jewelry Box
Women always need a good place to store all those extra little trinkets in their bedroom or bathroom. What better than a small personalized jewelry box?
Many styles are available including silver plated oval boxes that are engraved, flip-up wooden lid boxes that are hand-painted with their name, and even containers with glass lids that are actually etched with a name or monogram.
No matter what gift or idea that you choose, anything personal is a gift that she'll enjoy using for years to come.
