Let’s get started!
Best Bridesmaid Gifts
Before we get started, a quick question + answer: why do you give bridesmaid gifts? And when are you supposed to give gifts to your bridesmaids? And HOW MUCH are you supposed to spend on bridal party gifts?
Ah, these are great questions!
For starters, bridesmaid gifts are given as a way to say thank you to your bridal party for standing up in your wedding. Presents are also given as a way to show your appreciation for the costs they’ve racked up (travel, a bridesmaid’s dress, hair, and makeup costs, a bridal shower gift, time spent helping you, etc. really adds up!) and to show your sincere thanks for his or her friendship. (Yes, some men are becoming a part of the bridal party and can be a “groomsmaid”, or Man of Honor. Here, there are no rules. It’s your wedding, your way!)
When to Give Bridesmaid Gifts
Bridesmaid presents can be given to your bridal party either…
Here’s an example of a “be my bridesmaid” gift (by PetalandPaperie):
Lastly, how much are you supposed to spend? That really depends on how much you’re able to spend with your budget. And also, how much bridesmaids in your crew are spending on their end. For instance, are the bridesmaid dresses expensive? Do they need to travel? Are there many pre-wedding parties and festivities to attend? If so, spend a bit more. The most important part of buying bridesmaid gifts is to choose items that reflect their personalities. The gift(s) ought to be unique, functional, and make them feel appreciated.
With a gift, the best thing you can include for bridesmaids is a card with a handwritten note inside. They’ll really love that. :)
Now that you know why it is custom to give bridesmaid gifts and when to give them, along with how much to spend, let’s go ahead and show you the best bridesmaid gifts 2020 weddings will bring!
Your crew will LOVE you for it. :)

This travel jewelry holder is great for bridesmaids who love to travel or like to organize their jewelry in a small box for safe-keeping.
