Since you know all your bridesmaids' personalities so well, you might think that finding the perfect gift won't be hard at all. Things can get tricky, however, when you can't decide on just one type of bridesmaid gift among the endless options out there. It also takes extra effort to find an especially unique gift to be remembered for years to come. To help you out, we've collected 15 fun gift ideas that your girls will be delighted to receive.

  • Bridesmaid Robes

    This is a classic bridesmaid gift that can never go wrong. Aside from looking stylish on their own, bridesmaid robes can also be worn together during a fun photo session before the ceremony or reception. Don’t forget to embroider your bridesmaids’ names or initials on them as a personal touch.

  • Accessories

    You can get either matching accessories or personalized ones that reflect your bridesmaids’ personalities well. Better yet, coordinate the accessories with your bridesmaids’ outfits so they can wear them throughout the day.

  • Clutch

    One can never have enough clutch bags. Whether you want give similar clutches or ones in different colors and styles, it’s all up to you. Again, the bags can be part of your bridesmaids’ ensemble on the big day.

  • Mug or Glass

    We’re not talking about the plain mugs or glasses you have at home. Go the extra mile by ordering personalized ones with your bridesmaids’ initials or names. You can also take the DIY route by adding simple hand-lettering using a permanent marker on any mug or glass.

  • Leather Goods

    If you’re looking for another classy and timeless option, this one will do the trick. Leather products come in so many types, colors, and sizes, you’ll easily find one that suits your fancy. Wallets, clutch bags, key chains—whatever you choose, don’t forget to have them embossed especially for your bridesmaids.

  • Compact Mirror

    This small yet practical item can be a lifesaver when you need it. Choose ones with different patterns or colors to match each bridesmaid’s personality or just add initials to plain ones. Here’s a fun idea, find assorted compact mirrors in similar sizes from antique stores and thrift shops, then let your bridesmaids choose their favorite ones.

  • Manicure in a Jar

    Treat your bridesmaids to a DIY manicure kit filled with nail polish, hand cream, and other irresistible beauty products. This will also make a great bridal shower gift to enjoy during a pajama party or sleepover with your girls before the big day comes.

  • Pouch

    Pouches are such versatile gifts that can be kept at home or in your bridesmaids’ handbags. There are so many styles and materials to choose from, so you won’t face much difficulty in creating personalized ones.

  • Tumbler or bottle

    This is as easy as buying a tumbler from your nearest coffee shop and customizing it with your own design. Alternatively, find a service that can create personalized bottles to represent your bridesmaids’ different personalities. This way, they’ll remember your big day whenever they get their morning coffee or infused water.

  • Makeup

    This is a gift that your bridesmaids will definitely love. You can give them your favorite shade of lipstick, but we would recommend choosing different colors that suit their own skin tones. If you’re on a budget, consider giving drugstore makeup or sample sizes of high end products.

  • DIY Spa at Home

    After facing the rush of your big day, your bridesmaids deserve some relaxation. Hand them a box consisting of DIY spa essentials they can use at home. You can get creative by giving them different scented products and creating a custom label for each one.

  • Edible Gifts

    Food is the easiest way to get into anyone’s heart, so why don’t you give your bridesmaids hampers filled with cookies, chocolate, or any other sweet treats that they will love? Another great idea to is give mini bottles of champagne, liquor, or pre-mixed cocktails to get your them ready for the after-party.

  • Travel Bag

    For a destination wedding, this is one of the best bridesmaid gift ideas. Find something cute with a holiday vibe like a rattan or canvas tote bag, then fill it with a bunch of travel essentials. For example, prepare sunglasses for a beach wedding or shawls for a winter wedding.

  • Perfume

    If you know each of your bridesmaids’ favorite scent, then you can give this a go. But even if you don’t, you can always share your favorite perfume with them. Or, you can just buy a collection of mini perfumes for greater variety.

  • Stationery Set

    Here’s something simple yet useful for your bridesmaids. Have your wedding stationery designer create blank cards or letter sets that match your invitations. For an even more personalized touch, add your bridesmaids’ initials or names to the stationery.
