After months of wedding planning and hundreds of decisions, it’s not always easy to think of useful bridesmaid gift ideas on your own.
You chose your bridesmaids because they are your ultimate tribe, your strongest supporters and backup, your hype squad, and your best friends. They’ve not only been there for you throughout your life in general, but they’ve likely already invested much of their time and resources into helping to make you feel as special as their favorite bride should. They’ve been planning wedding showers and bachelorette parties, and have helped out in countless other ways that have been essential to making the most out of tying the knot.
Your girls deserve a token of your appreciation for all they’ve done to make this wedding season and day so special. But if you’re stumped on what to get your squad, we’ve compiled a list for you of 10 useful bridesmaid gift ideas that your girls will actually use.
Here are 10 of the most useful bridesmaid gift ideas organized into categories to help you choose the best gifts for your girls.
Most women wear at least minimal make up every day, and your bridesmaids will probably be sporting a lot while they are up there with you as you tie the knot. So one of the most useful bridesmaid gift ideas is to get them a beauty item they are sure to use every day, and maybe even on your big day.
Likely your girls have been almost as hard at work as you to make your big day everything it should be. Giving them something to help relax after the excitement is over is always a useful and much-appreciated bridesmaid gift idea.
Almost nothing tells a woman how special she is more than a thoughtfully chosen or crafted piece of jewelry. So, a very useful bridesmaid gift idea is to give her something unique and personal to wear on your big day and to dress up any outfit later, so she knows and remembers just how special she is to you.
Something as every day as a hair accessory can be personalized and made special. It can be a fun accessory for the big day, and a commemorative reminder for every day it’s worn after. This makes it a very clever and useful bridesmaid gift idea.
Keep your girls looking fab together with a few matching accessories! And when those accessories can continue being used after the big day is over, they end up being a super useful bridesmaid gift idea.
Having something matching for you all to wear together as you get ready the “morning-of” is almost a requirement for any wedding day. Make it something comfy and cute they can also enjoy lounging in later, and it will be a very useful bridesmaid gift idea.
EVERYONE likes treats, and your girls deserve one (or a few)! And they will probably be ready for one if they’ve been strict with their diet thus far so they can fit into their bridesmaid dress.
Another really useful bridesmaid gift idea is to give them something personal they can display or use in their home that can help spark these memories you are making together for years to come.
“Drinks with the girls” is probably something you all do often, so what more useful and fun bridesmaid gift idea is there than to commemorate all those times with some personalized drinkware? You can make a few toasts with them together as you get ready to celebrate the nuptials, and bring them to use the next time you all get together!
Having pictures of you all together on your phone and Instagram is great. But for those really special times, having a tangible copy of the pictures themselves is even better. Displaying them for regular viewing can really brighten up a space with all the great memories they represent. The most useful bridesmaid gift ideas are the ones that can help bring back the most memories.
Whatever your budget or preferences, we hope this list of useful bridesmaid gift ideas helped you decide on something perfect to get your girls that they will love. One more decision you can check off that list.
