Nobody can hold a candle to the unbreakable friendship you’ve shared with each of your bridesmaids. It’s a pretty special thing when these ladies stand by your side on the biggest day of your life, so how’s a bride to repay them? In short, you can’t – but you can come pretty darn close with a fabulous and thoughtful bridesmaid gift. Check out our top gift ideas for your maids below. Happy shopping!
Grice Grove Pajama Short Set
Fabulous pajamas are not only a luxury to receive but look amazing in “getting ready” photos. Grice Grove carries various colors, but we’re especially fans of the “Courtney” set, which features a soft, sweet blush pink color with ivory trim. And at $49 per set, the price is right to outfit all your maids. (Coffee and comfy blankets sold separately.) For a limited time, our readers can use the code topten at checkout to receive 15% off Grice Grove’s pajamas!
Kendra Scott Earrings
Bring on the bling! There’s nothing as glam as a pair of Kendra Scott earrings. Whether understated studs or chandeliers, your girls will be able to sport these long after your reception ends. Hint: The Elle Drop Earrings come in more than 30 colors, so you’re sure to find something to match your color palette. ($55)
Carrie Pittman Painted Clutch
Local Birmingham artist Carrie Pittman is a master when it comes to incorporating color, texture and light into her work of art. The perfect bridesmaid accessory, check out her hand-painted clutches – each one unique. ($189)
Susan Gordon Pottery
Susan Gordon of Susan Gordon Pottery LLC creates custom dinnerware, serveware, decorative accents and handmade jewelry she describes as “organic, detailed, modern and timeless.” For a pretty and personalized bridesmaid gift, go for the monogram initial necklace (shown, $38) or one of her to-die-for watercolor ceramic ring dishes ($24).
Candles, Candles, Candles
Simply said, we can’t get enough of them. Whether the main event or tucked into your gift as an extra goodie, you can’t go wrong with a candle! Some of our favorites include Nest, Votivo, Tyler Candle Company and Rewined (shown, $28).
S’Well Water Bottle
Help your ladies stay hydrated on your wedding day – in style! Water bottles are always a fantastic gift, as they can be reused on a day-to-day basis, and S’Well is all the rage right now. Plus, their Pink Diamond water bottle looks totally chic in wedding photos. ($42)
Winter brides, this one’s for you! A cashmere wrap is the coziest accessory your girls could hope for on a cold wedding day, especially while snapping outdoor photos. Have your bridesmaids don them on your day however you please; later, they can use it as a scarf for a chilly night or as a blanket on their next flight. (Shown: White & Warren Cashmere Travel Wrap, $298)
Practically speaking, a well-made, monogrammed tote makes a fabulous bridesmaid gift. Great for holding makeup, accessories, a few magazines and snacks for a long day, your girls will thank you when moving locations. One of our favorites is L.L. Bean’s Tote Bag. ($29.95)
It doesn’t get much more Southern than this! An engraved compact is not only useful for touching up makeup for an all-day affair but beautiful to stash in your bag. We love these from Mark and Graham. ($35)
Sole Savers (a.k.a Jack Rogers sandals)
Summer brides, we’re looking at you. Jack Rogers Circle Monogrammed Sandals, rumored to be Jackie O’s favorite sandal, make the perfect gift for bridesmaids who plan to cut a rug at your reception. Plus, they’ll be able to sport these all summer long. ($168)
