25 Cool and Original Bridesmaids Gifts

Giving gifts to members of the wedding and other special guests is a time-honored way of showing thanks and sharing joy. It's customary to present a token of appreciation to bridesmaids, ushers, flower girls, ringer bearers, readers and parents, as well as anyone else who helps make your wedding day special.

Here is a list of our 25 favorite bridesmaid gifts that reflect their personality and interest. They’re sure to be a long lasting memory of your wedding.
  • Aromatherapy candles that fit in with each of their lifestyles (tranquility, energizing, de-stressing).

    Beautiful hair jewelry, like a butterfly barrette or rhinestone bobby pins.

    A small box of decadent chocolates.

    Perfume and a dainty atomizer.

    All the fixings for a luxurious bubble bath.

    A day of hiking (or kayaking or skiing, etc.).

    Gorgeous candlesticks and candles that fit their décor.

    Cooking, art or ceramics classes. (Fun for the creative types, and relaxing for those who are highly stressed).

    A pair of margarita glasses, a good bottle of tequila and limes, - of course!

    For a business traveler, a tiny blow-dryer and mini sizes of all her favorite toiletries.

    A deluxe set of designer makeup brushes for the beauty aficionado.

    A fine linen handkerchief (for all those happy tears she'll shed at your wedding).

    A gourmet gift basket - include a tiny cookbook and all the ingredients to make a few delicious dishes!

    Decoupage a shoebox with memorabilia: old photos, ticket stubs from movies you saw together, and snippets from letters. Fill it with sweets or some scented beauty and bath items.

    Concert tickets for a favorite band.

    Manicures and pedicures all around! (Great to give before the wedding.)

    A precious evening bag - and not necessarily one for the wedding.

    Gourmet coffees or teas in a fun, jumbo-sized cup and saucer.

    A beautiful hand blown vase or artful objects, is perfect for her creative side.

    Lingerie (they'll never expect it).

    For a movie nut, a small collection of her favorite videos, some microwave popcorn and a video guidebook. (Don't forget the Junior Mints!)

    A lovely photo frame (or two) - and a promise for a wedding photograph of the two of you.

    Certificate for a upscale Family Portrait of their own.
