What do bridesmaids want as gifts? What are the top bridesmaids gifts you actually want to give? And how can you make sure you’re giving your bridal party gifts that aren’t overdone? You’ve come to the right place! Each year, we update our annual bridal party gift guide and it is chock-full of unique, curated gift ideas for bridesmaids. But you know what? We’ve been getting requests from brides that are looking for something fairly specific: bridesmaids gifts not jewelry related. I can totally understand this because a good friend of mine doesn’t like to wear jewelry, and others don’t even own jewelry or wear it only occasionally. Heck, I know handfuls of people who don’t like to wear rings, so they wear these alternatives instead.
The bottom line is, there are plenty of non jewelry bridesmaids gifts you can give instead! Why give the same presents to everyone — especially bridesmaids who don’t wear jewelry?
In this post, you’ll find the most unique bridesmaid gifts that aren’t jewelry to prove there’s more to bridesmaid thank you gifts than earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. While lovely, some women don’t normally wear jewelry: they enjoy to wear or use other things instead! And that’s OK! To give a proper gift, you should choose something she loves anyway, so this will help you to refocus your gift-giving skills on something she’ll actually use, enjoy, and treasure forever. We’re so committed to sharing non-jewelry wedding party gifts that we even skipped right over jewelry boxes and ring dishes because, seriously, if she doesn’t wear jewelry, why give her a dish made for putting jewelry inside… when she doesn’t have any?! Ha! :)
To go one step further, we made sure these are also bridesmaid gifts that aren’t OVERDONE. Haven’t you grown tired of seeing the same old gifts over and over again? Some brides were also asking for ideas that aren’t robes, but we have a thing to say about that: we did include robes, but the two styles we’re featuring are unique — not like the same old styles you’ve been seeing over and over again. :) PLUS, everything on this list is handmade — so you can shop small, yay! — and these are truly one-of-a-kind gifts she likely won’t already own.
So, yeah, you’re pretty much killin’ this whole gift-giving thing, you awesome bride-to-be! And THIS is the list to do it!
