Shopping for your girls isn’t easy, I know. And you definitely want to say a heart felt thank you for them helping and supporting you on your big day. It’s customary nowadays to give your bridesmaids a small gift to say thanks. I’ve compiled my favourite bridesmaids gift ideas below from BHLDN to give you some inspiration. Happy shopping!

Bridesmaids Gift Ideas: Wearables

Left: No girl can say no to this beautiful crystal clutch. Perfect for the wedding day as an accessory and it will definitely get use post-wedding too.
Right: If you are getting married in the shoulder months and it might be cold out for photos, gift your girls with matching wraps so that you still match in photos.
Bridesmaids Gift Ideas: Practical
Left: Show your girls some amore with this jewellery dish, a great gift for any girl.
Right: Most bridesmaids carry around their essentials on the wedding day (for themselves and for you!), so a cosmetic bag would be a useful and cute gift.

Right: For the “you never know” and the “just in case” moments, gift your bridesmaids with this cute minimergency kit with everything and anything they might need on the day (and after in their purse!).
Bridesmaids Gift Ideas: from our real weddings
I love the look of this vintage jewellery box holder from Weddingstar, from a Whimsical and Vintage Inspired Styled Ceremony.
A designer perfume is the perfect way to say “thank you”. The Miss Dior eau de toilette from a Vintage 1920s inspired wedding.
This creative bride created her own little baskets full of her favourite things to give to her bridesmaids, from a Tiffany Blue meets Blush Wedding. Such a great idea!
Whether you are giving your bridesmaids a practical gift or something they can proudly wear on the wedding day, it’s the thought that counts. They’ll love and support you through the day either way!
