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 gift ideas.

No proposal box is complete without a fun pair of sunnies—especially your junior bridesmaid's. These heart-shaped sunglasses come in six different colors, but we personally think she'll wear the black the most often. Especially since a retro style is super popular right now.

Floral Drink Tumblers

Chances are, if they are serving as a junior bridesmaid, they're not legally old enough to drink, so personalized wine glasses aren't a useful gift idea. Instead, give them these unbelievably adorable water bottles. The skinny tumbler features a push-on lid and matching straw—both decorated with fun wildflowers, the recipient's name and their wedding title. They'll know exactly which drink is theirs when they're with the crew helping to plan the shower, running wedding errands or getting ready on the big day.
