Even if they're wearing matching dresses, you know each of your bridesmaids is totally unique—and that's why you love them. So instead of saying thank you with identical bridal party gifts, consider giving each a unique bridesmaid gift that speaks straight to her. Whether it's a piece of jewelry she'll wear day after day, a personalized accessory or a sweet little something only you two would understand, show each woman in your bridal party how well you know her with standout gifts that reflect her character. Below, creative ideas for unique bridesmaid gifts to suit every personality.

For Your Most Fun Friend

She's silly, fun and unabashedly unpretentious. This is the bridesmaid who's embraced her quirks and become the life of the party. For the whimsical woman, look for lighthearted gifts to match her spirit.
