Sure, they’re your bridal party BFFs, but what if you want to give bridesmaid gifts that don’t say bridesmaid on them? Find out why this makes sense and subscribe for more tips to your inbox.
The word bridesmaid is a nice honor, a wonderful title, and can be a lot of fun. But does that mean every gift you receive or give should be emblazoned with the title on it?
Well, not necessarily.
In this blog post, we’re sharing some unique and non-traditional bridesmaid gift ideas that don’t scream bridesmaid, since that’s not all she is to you. She’s a friend, a lifelong supporter.
She’s an avid musician, or tv-watcher, or hiker, or likes to explore the great outdoors. Maybe she loves to sail, relax on the beach, or travel. She’s a bridesmaid, yes, but a gift that screams “bridesmaid” will limit the amount of time she’ll use it… and may not be the best choice when it comes to gift-giving for your bridal party.
In this blog post, we’re sharing the best non-bridesmaid gift ideas that are thoughtful and memorable without saying “bridesmaid”.
Bridesmaid Gifts Without Bridesmaid On Them
Why don’t you want your gift to say bridesmaid on it?

You want to give a gift that lasts, so when you seek out bridesmaid gifts that don’t say bridesmaid, you’re finding good gifts that are more thoughtful and meaningful to stand the test of time. :)
These gift suggestions don’t say bridesmaid on them: they’re curated items you’ll find that resonate with their style, hobbies, likes, or interests instead. The result? Amazing gift-giving skills by yours truly, the bride-to-be. They’ll love you for it!
