Handmade Bridesmaid Gifts and Ideas
1. A clutch / tote / or purse of some kind
One of the go-to bridesmaid gift ideas is a clutch purse, tote bag, or a purse of some kind. This doesn’t mean just any bag: for gift giving points, look for something that’s a) definitely her style, b) features her name or initial, and c) is designed for either formal or casual everyday use.
Try something personalized…
… something colorful + fun…
… a little rustic…
… or something fancy…
… or something with her name right on it!
There are hundreds of styles and patterns to choose from, but we’ve made it easy on you by pulling together the best in The Marketplace.
2. A personalized dress hanger
A dress hanger is a hot trend right now, but we’re also digging it long-term! Here’s why: it is a place for her bridesmaid dress to hang on the wedding day (and make for some super-cute photos for you). And, it goes right into her closet to display her favorite piece of clothing. She’ll look back on it every time she goes to her closet and she’ll love that it has her name beautifully scrolled across it.
Here is an example of some pretty hangers, custom-made by Get Hung Up:
3. A customized art print she can hang in her bedroom or office
Like this sweet one which says, “There were never such devoted sisters” by Little Leaf Prints…
Or a pretty monogram artwork from Golden Paisley…
Or something with added whimsy, like a personalized embroidery hoop art THAT LOOKS LIKE HER. I mean, she doesn’t have one of those, that’s for sure. By Stitch Folks:
Even a simple initial will do!
These are just some examples; you can see a ton of other inspiring wall art finds right here.
4. A piece of personalized jewelry
Select a bracelet or necklace she’ll love to wear again and again. One of my favorites? This gem from Ava Hope Designs.
A gold bar necklace is always a classic choice. This one is from Vintage Stamp Jewels:
Or try these mismatched necklaces featuring variations of one coordinating shade from Palomaria. This is a great idea if you’re doing mismatched dresses, too!
Or even a Victorian inspired locket necklace with a photo of the two of you inside? This one was spotted at Freshy Fig:
Maybe she would like a Herkimer diamond — one of my recent favorite finds. These rings from Lumafina are stunning. And they’re not real diamonds (they’re just called that), so the price is right.
5. A personalized gift for travel
If she likes to travel, consider inspired finds like a personalized passport cover…
… or a luggage tag, like these made of real wood by Maria Allen Boutique:
Another gift idea is a makeup roll, which holds her makeup brushes in one place in a roll-away pouch. This one is from Forshee Designs:
6. A personalized gift for home
Who doesn’t love a glam coffee cup for their morning java? I want one of these! They’re calligraphed with each girl’s name in beautiful gold. By Spin Gallery Goods.
One of our favorite ideas is a photo frame. This rustic find from Montana Snow features a clip so the photo can be changed out anytime she wants. She can also use it on her desk as a place for to-do notes.
A personalized photo frame, like this from Prince Whitaker, will feature her bridesmaid dress and name engraved on it.
Or a dish for placing her jewelry or trinkets! This cat shaped one spotted at Pottery Lodge is fun — and it can be personalized with her initials:
We’re also huge fans of these vases by Susabella…
… and these jewelry boxes, too! Also by Susabella. Cute, cute, cute!
7. A fun idea: a subscription box
A subscription box is a really fun gift idea because everyone loves to get mail! Some of our favorites? Try these:
