What kind of ring bearer gifts for 10 year old? 7 year old? Toddler? Gift ideas for ring bearers vary by age, and we’re here to help you decipher what to get based on the age of your attendant.
Before we start on this fun gift guide, let’s get one question out of the way: how old can your ring bearer be?
A ring bearer is typically anywhere from toddler age up to 10 years old. If the boy is older than 10 and you wish to make him a part of your wedding, the best option is to give him the role of usher or junior groomsman rather than ring bearer. He’ll feel too old for the role and, instead, you can make him feel more grown up in one of the other roles mentioned.
Now that we have that info out of the way, you’re probably wondering what every couple wonders while planning their wedding: what to gift ring bearer?
The ring bearer gift, as all gifts for attendants including bridesmaids, groomsmen, the flower girl, ushers, and any other vendors, is to show a small token of your appreciation for being a part of your wedding.
You can spend whatever your budget allows, but typically you should gift ring bearer (or ring bearers) with a gift around the $20 to $30 mark. This price varies depending on age, as does the ring bearer gift ideas themselves. You wouldn’t give a toddler toy to a ring bearer at 9 years old; on the other hand, you wouldn’t give an 8-year-old ring bearer the same gift as a 4-year-old ring bearer.
We’re breaking down the best ring bearer gifts for 10 year old to toddlers to provide helpful insight into gifts they’ll actually use, enjoy, and treasure.
