21 Junior Bridesmaid Gifts They'll Want to Keep Forever
Tying the knot with a junior bridesmaid by your side? Honor their unique role in your wedding with something extra special. Lucky for you, there are tons of cute junior bridesmaid gifts out there to show them just how much they mean to you. But before you dive headfirst into gift shopping, here's a quick refresher: What is a junior bridesmaid? They're typically a little old for playing flower girl (but too young for a boozy bachelorette).
When it comes to bridesmaid gifts, it's safe to assume that the younger members of your crew will appreciate something different than your college roommates (who are now fully fledged adults). For instance, your 30-something friends with their own homes might love a set of monogrammed marble coasters —but what's a 16-year-old going to do with it? To help you out, we've made a list of our favorite age-appropriate presents that they'll actually use. Whether you're planning a junior bridesmaid proposal or just want to say thanks, check out these no-fail gifts ideas.
(And if that's not enough, head to The Knot Shop for even more junior bridesmaid gift inspo.)
