How to Choose Bridesmaid Gifts

"Gift giving should always be intentional and thoughtful," says Damali. "When choosing the right gifts for your wedding party, my advice is to gift items that will make your wedding party feel special." This could mean personalizing each item, picking something that fits their interests, simply choosing cute bridesmaid gifts in their style, or assembling bridesmaid gift baskets full of useful or pampering accessories. It's also not necessary to buy the same gifts for everyone. "Consider gifting each member of the party a different gift based on their likes and personality," says Damali.

How to Give Bridesmaid Gifts

When deciding when to give your bridesmaids their gifts, there isn't a right or wrong time. If you're gifting something that might be helpful to them on the wedding day, like a monogrammed clutch, the morning of is a good opportunity to spoil your squad. Otherwise, the rehearsal dinner is a popular time to hand out wedding gifts for bridesmaids. What's more sentimental than a heartfelt "thank you" on the eve of your nuptials? As for presentation, Damali suggests a beautifully wrapped gift box paired with some sparkling wine.
