50 Bridesmaid Gifts They’ll Love

Posted August 16, 2012 | 10 Comments

Hello, hello! This morning’s post is… well, it’s pretty extensive. We’ve compiled one of the most comprehensive bridesmaid gifts guide ever with a whopping fifty gifts, each lovingly handpicked by our team. We think bridesmaids deserved to be spoiled; this guide will help you do it. Read on to see which fifty bridesmaid gifts made the list, along with a little commentary by me (Emma). Who knows, you may just find an item or two you love for yourself, too. (I know I did.) Enjoy! P.S. Items lower on the list are not lower in our hearts. Items are not ranked, simply numbered for reference.

Bridesmaid Gifts: 50 Must-Have Finds

The list begins with a heart necklace so adorable I needed to talk about it first. I love the embroidered heart and the longer-length chain. Plus, it’s extremely versatile (wear with other chains for a more layered look).

1 – zelma rose

This next item was discovered after hearing from the folks at Munki Munki directly. They wanted us to see their new bridal + bridesmaid prints, and asked us to take a look at a sample pajama to tell ‘em our honest opinion. Ladies, these pajamas are incredible. I wore mine the other night (I selected this pink perfume bottle number, below) and they’re now my favorite pair. Plus, the perfume bottles, eyelash curlers, and pearl earring designs are utterly adorable.

Beautiful handmade jewelry never goes out of style, and these picks are some of my favorites. I’ve never seen a lace pendant like the one pictured in #6 – and it’s now on my must-have list. (Of course, all are gift-worthy.)

3 – cloe noel, 4 – steampunk funk, 5 – eclectic orchid, 6 – hello violeta, 7 – scarlett jewelry

Gorgeous stacking rings, blue floral earrings, a bird necklace, and an initial pendant: love it all.

A heart never goes out of style. These ultra-mod earrings by Roses and Lemons caught my eye at first glance, as did the heart ring by Pretty Things Galore. Daily wear? Absolutely.

12 – roses and lemons, 13 – pretty things galore

Every girl deserves a little sparkle in her life, which is why #14 was a must-have in this list.

14 – sibo designs

Give your girls bridesmaid gifts they can wear again, like this fun feathery hair accessory, stamped heart necklace, or vintage-inspired locket.

15 – maddie lu’s, 16 – georgie designs, 17 – lost and fawned

Again, embroidery rules the wedding world with a simple embroidered initial on a delicate chain. This necklace by Merriweather Council steals my handmade-loving heart every. single. time.

Bridesmaids can embellish a favorite accessory (think clutch, blazer, or sweater) with a pretty flower pin. This gorgeous collection is by Sunshine and Carousels.

19 – sunshine and carousels

Each of these items offers a floral appeal, like the bling-worthy flower brooch, almost bloom-like pearl ring, vintage brooch ring, and clay flower wall art.


20 – dinkybird boutique, 21 – figment and rather, 22 – cloe noel, 23 – sweet stella’s

This locket shown below features a removable heart, with just enough space to include a small folded up note for your bridesmaid. The initial necklaces and earrings – shown in gorgeous blue hues – are always a welcome gift idea, while the vegan flats can be worn on the wedding day (and beyond!).


24 – the dedication company, 25 – georgie designs, 26 – hydra heart, 27 – roses and lemons

A hot pink (or other bright color) feather hair accessory always makes a great gift. It can be worn in her hair or attached to a pinback and secured to her favorite clutch purse.

28 – fancie strands

These next few findings offer a little of everything, from personalized best friend necklaces to a flower stem she can carry down the aisle (and place in a decorative vase after the big day). The black sash can be worn with her dress and for special events, while the stunning blue clutch can be carried on your next girls’ night out. The personalized hanger is a grand slam gift idea, as she’ll love to see it in her closet everyday.


29 – her silver lining, 30 – sparkle sm, 31 – my amber coloured world, 32 – emici bridal, 33 – fallen sparrow

It doesn’t get much better than this: a little black clutch bag, covered in sequins. Love, love, love.

34 – emma gordon london

This is the first time I’ve seen this bow-styled scarf, and with fall right around the corner it sure looks cozy. The coffee (or tea) mugs will be a welcome addition to her kitchen cupboard, and that tote bag can keep her wedding day essentials in one place.

What will they wear while getting ready? Consider these fun patterns + prints by handmade artisan, Underwrapz.

This initial + heart ring is one of the cutest things ever, and this ultra-modern necklace in gold with monogram is both personalized and stylish. The headbands in #41 offer tons of ultra-girly shades, and ring dishes = always a winner, particularly when they’re personalized like so…

39 – jubile jewel, 40 – spiffing jewelry, 41 – sunshine and carousels, 42 – the brick kiln

On my own shopping list at the moment is a killer makeup bag. I’m tired of having my makeup in tons of containers, bags, purses, and such, so I’m ready to downsize into one single bag. This one by Eden’s Wake is versatile and neutral, available in tons of colors, and can store a TON of stuff. Fill it with your own favorite makeup goodies (like your favorite gloss or lipstick, eyeshadow, and mascara) as a special surprise. The monogrammed menswear shirts in #44 is a great way to get ready in style (without undoing your makeup and hair by pulling a shirt above your head when getting dressed). The monogram makes it extra special. Suzy Shoppe‘s collection of wall art – as shown in #45 – can display song lyrics with a special personalized heart for your bridesmaid. Finally, clutch purses in #46 are perfect for a rustic wedding. (Is there anything more fitting than burlap clutches mixes with polka-dot flowers?)

This wristlet will hold her essentials (phone, wallet, keys, lipstick) and has her name sweetly embroidered to the front. Ah, love the brilliant colors Mama Bleu Designs used on these…

Another getting ready idea is this kimono-style robe that is made in a soft material and is available in a variety of patterns. By Doie Lounge.

If you and your BFF live far away from one another, this gift is a perfect idea.

And… last but not least, this polka dot hair bow is too cute for words. Available in polka dot or solid colors.
