Etsy, Amazon

Whether you’ve yet to ask your bridesmaids to be or you’re pulling together their thank you gifts, your bridesmaids and maid of honor are going to or have been by your side throughout your engagement and wedding planning process—you should celebrate them! Unique and thoughtful gifts are great for asking your bridesmaids to be part of your big day, as a pre-wedding gift, or as a thank you present after the celebration has commenced. But as much as we love the sentimental gifts, we also love a practical and inexpensive gift as well.

As a recent bride and a bridesmaid a few times over, I’ve received and gifted my fair share of bridesmaids presents in the last few years. From experience, I can tell you the gifts I still cherish to this day and the ones that were life savers the day of, as well as gifts I wish I would’ve gifted my girls, and I’m sharing all of them with you here. Some are thoughtful and sweet, some are wedding day necessities they’ll thank you for endlessly, but all are unique and sure to be appreciated by your best girls.

Monogrammed Wristlet

I’m a big fan of practical gifts that are helpful on wedding day, and as a bridesmaid a few times over, I’d put this at the top of my list of gifts I wished I’d received. No one wants to worry about carrying a purse around on the big day, but your girls still need a place to store cards, cash, their phones, and some lip balm. These are cute yet inexpensive and would surely be used time and time again!
