Between checking emails and Instagramming the wedding planning process, your bridesmaids will be using their mobile devices now more than ever. A tech-forward present that makes their lives a little easier won't just be an appreciated gift, but a welcomed addition to their closet. Traditionally, bridesmaid gifts are given at the rehearsal dinner or at a bridal event a day or two before the wedding, but there's no rule that says you can't give them sooner. Especially if the gift helps you as much as it does them (read: a purse that keeps their phone charged and at-the-ready at all times).

  1. 1. Phone-Charging Wristlet

    Kate Spade black and white striped everpurse

    What's better than a Parisian-chic clutch that goes with everything? A striped accessory that goes with everything and has a built-in phone-charging doc. In between all the picture taking and day-of texts and phone calls, your girls will have fully charged phones from morning mimosas to the wedding after-party. When it's not in use, set the purse on top of its wireless charging platform to recharge, and be on your way again.

  2. 2. Vibrating Notification Bracelet

    Rebecca Minkoff black and gold notification bracelet

    From dress fittings to rehearsal times, there's going to be a lot of back and forth with your bridesmaids during the wedding planning. Instead of feeling like they need to keep an eye on their phone all the time, they can pair this bracelet with their phone via Bluetooth, program up to 25 different contacts, and be alerted of texts and calls through a vibration notification.

  3. 3. Bluetooth Speaker Clutch

    Stelle audio mini-clutch in black

    Perfect for spontaneous dance parties or playing background music during endless escort card crafting, this slim clutch doubles as a Bluetooth-compatable, six-watt speaker—it even has an auxiliary cord to pair with any non-Bluetooth device. As for practicality, there's a built-in mirror for prewedding photo touch-ups and a microphone for hands-free phone calls (and a USB phone-charging cable!).

  4. 4. Notification Cocktail Ring

    Ringly Out to Sea blue notification ring

    Maybe some of your ladies prefer a cocktail ring to arm candy? With Ringy, they can connect their phone (iOS or Android) and set custom colors and vibration patterns for different types of notifications (email, text, call). You can even choose from eight different precious and semiprecious gemstones for personalized gifting.

  5. 5. Clutch + Phone Case

    KOTUR #getsmartbag bridesmaids gift idea

    The patented design of the KOTUR Getsmartbag allows you to clip your phone into the back of the clutch (on a hinged panel, so you still have quick camera access) for total accessibility. The days of credit cards and cash slipping out of your purse when reaching for your phone are finally over.
