Bridesmaid gifts are becoming a hot topic in the online wedding world.

That’s why we’ve put together the ultimate gift guide for your ‘maids with our favorite things, perfect for snapping an Instagram AND bridesmaid approved!

Trust us when we say your wedding party will appreciate a thoughtful gift. Something that has sentimental value like this “I’ve Got Your Back” Sew-In Label from Kate Spade is the perfect way to thank your bridesmaids for having your back through this process and always! And we love these Italian suede leather customizable cosmetic bags from Mark & Graham. They come in a chic color palette, and offer free monogramming and free gift wrapping and they’re perfect for hauling all the wedding day makeup essentials. And this gift package of Philosophy Fragrances is a great way to show your bridesmaids how well you know them. It features six different scents ranging from warm citrus to cashmere woods. The best part? While these all smell delicious on their own, they were developed to be layered together and still smell amazing. So gift one flavor to each of your ‘maids to create a cohesive wedding day scent!

You’ve probably seen the flowy floral robes that make for effortlessly chic getting ready photos. We love Plum Pretty Sugar, because they offer different styles in a single print of different prints in a single style, allowing for endless wedding day combinations. From boyfriends shirts to shortie sets and robes to rompers, you can order a different style for each member of your wedding party, depending on their personal style. (Guaranteeing that they will want to wear it again = win-win!) A Kendra Scott necklace is the perfect bridesmaid gift, we’re convinced. They come in about a million different colors, are a great accessory to any bridesmaid dress, and are minimalist enough to wear every day! The adorable Minimergency Kit is part helpful, part selfish. If your bridesmaids are prepared for anything on your wedding day, they will feel less stressed and they’ll be able to get you out of any sticky situation you find yourself in

Here comes the fun part: set the whole tone of your wedding shenanigans with these playful gifts for your bridesmaids. The “I Wanna Party With You” Drink Sleeve from ban.do will let your girls know what’s up from the bachelorette bash the wedding after party. And if your bridesmaids are traveling to the wedding, they will love having this adorable “I’m Outta Here” luggage tag from bando that will help them travel in style. Last, but certainly not least, we love the sassy labels of Ms. Betty’s Candles. We strongly believe in the Lauren Conrad rule of gift giving: “I always say that it has to be something I can eat, drink, or burn,” and this “Soy Glad We’re Friends” candle just says it all! When it comes down to it, don’t just get your bridesmaids gifts because it will look cute on Instagram or because you see it all over Pinterest, give them gifts to genuinely thank them for standing by your side on one of the most important days of your life! And don’t forget the Groomsmen!
