38 Adorable Ring Bearer Gift Ideas

Thank your ring bearer for being a special part of your day with a thoughtful present.
by The Knot

You get your bridesmaids and groomsmen wedding thank-you gifts for participating in your nuptials, so why should others, like your flower girl and ring bearer, be any different? It's a considerate and appreciated gesture to give your little helpers a token of gratitude, and it doesn't have to be big. In fact, the best ring bearer gifts are fun, silly and playful picks. Better yet, ring bearer presents can act as props during the event, like a tiny briefcase to hold the wedding bands, a badge that signifies their role in the ceremony or even something to keep them busy during the reception. Here, we've gathered our favorite gifts to consider buying for your ring bearer.
