Thoughtful Thank Yous: Creative Bridesmaid Gift Ideas

How do you say thank you to the ladies who have stood by your side? Many brides plan their entire wedding without any problems, but when it comes to finding the perfect gifts for their girls, they are at a loss. And with so many possible gifts for bridesmaids, how is a bride to choose? Sure, you could always go with a traditional option, like jewelry, which is fine—but what if you’re looking for something a little more interesting? You’ve come to the right place! We’re here to show you some of our favorite unique bridesmaids gifts, and to give you some creative bridesmaid gift ideas.

Creative bridesmaid gift ideas: Dessy pashmina

Personal, practical, and pretty: words to live by when choosing gifts for bridesmaids.

I’ve received many gifts from brides over the years. I’m sure they were all chosen with care, but my favorite ones were both sentimental and practical, like the monogrammed makeup bag or the cozy pair of slippers (my feet are always cold!). Based on that, I’ve picked a few of our unique bridesmaids gifts that I wouldn’t mind receiving, if I could do it over again. Maybe one of these is perfect for your ladies, too!

Personal gifts for bridesmaids:

Creative bridesmaid gift ideas: Weekender Tote

We have tons of personalized and monogrammed bridesmaid gifts available. Choose something a little bit luxurious for your girls with Cathy’s Concepts personalized cashmere scarf. It’s oh-so-soft and comes in three neutral colors that go with everything. Cathy’s Concepts The Weekender Tote Bag is another one of my favorite monogrammed bridesmaid gifts, and would even come in handy for toting around wedding day necessities!

Practical gifts for bridesmaids:

Creative bridesmaid gift ideas: Fashion Emergency Kit

I’ll let you in on a little insider secret: the ladies here at the Wedding Shoppe love the Sole Mates High Heelers. This nifty little invention fits over the heel of your shoe to keep you from getting stuck in grass or soft ground. They are practically invisible and can be reused multiple times! (They’re also available in Silver or Gold.) Perhaps the most practical of our creative bridesmaid gift ideas is the Hollywood Fashion Tape Fashion Emergency Kit. Containing everything you could possibly need for any last-minute wedding day mishaps, your gals will be ready to roll with whatever comes their way. (It’s also super helpful to keep in your purse; after all, you never know when you’ll need a safety pin!)

Pretty gifts for bridesmaids:

Creative bridesmaid gift ideas: Mariell 3503EB clutch

These last three unique bridesmaids gifts are just plain pretty. The Dessy Pashmina comes in eight gorgeous ombre color combinations and is the perfect size to wear as a scarf or a wrap. Mariell Handbag 3503EB is an adorable dressy clutch, great for the wedding or a night on the town (I am totally jonesing for this one in Champagne). And, since jewelry is so personal and can be really hard to buy for someone else, I suggest keeping it simple and classic with these Carolee cubic zirconia studs. They will go with everything in her closet and have just the right amount of sparkle. So, what do you think? Do you have some creative bridesmaid gift ideas of your own? Share them with us!
