60 Bridesmaid Gift Ideas to Help You Say Thanks
While giving your bridesmaids thank-you gifts isn't required, it never goes unappreciated. Odds are, your wedding party has already helped out a ton (think: pitching in for the bridal shower, organizing a bachelorette getaway and volunteering their time for bridesmaid dress fittings). Bridesmaid gifts are a thoughtful token of your gratitude to show them just how much their support means to you.
Picking Them Out
The best bridesmaid gifts are the ones that show you've put thought into choosing them. That 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. Even if you're looking for bridesmaid gift ideas on the cheap, there are plenty of options to show your appreciation.
Giving Them Out
There isn't a right or wrong time to hand out bridesmaid gifts. If you're gifting something that might be helpful to them on the wedding day, like a mini emergency kit or 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?
