Bridesmaid Gift Ideas for Every Budget

Your bridesmaids were there for you every step of the way — they shared in your joy when you got engaged, showered you with items for your new home, planned your last fling before the ring and stood by your side as you recited your marriage vows. Here are some creative and useful ways to show your favorite ladies just how much you appreciate them.

  • Cupcakes


    Prohibition Bakery cupcakes are bite-sized but they come with a hidden surprise: they're spiked with the finest liquor! Unlike other booze-filled treats, the flavors are distinctive without being overpowering. There are 12 different combinations that are available for shipping — we're partial to the White Russian, which is made with Kahlua, vodka, and coffee ($20 for a dozen).

  • Quilted Gloves

    Quilted Gloves

    The weather outside may be frightful, but your 'maids will look nothing short of delightful in these luxe Dennis Basso Quilted Lamb Leather Gloves from QVC ($36.12) that only look like they cost a fortune. They're available in burgundy, black, or chocolate, and the sizing runs a little snug, so you may want to size up.

  • Phone-Charging Clutch

    Phone-Charging Clutch

    Chic Buds Clutchette Power ($49.99) is equal parts stylish and brilliant, just like your besties. Inside the clutch is a hidden lightweight, ultra-thin battery that provides most smart phones with a full charge for double the battery life. They can even toss it inside a bigger everyday purse for easy access.

  • Stylish Headphones

    Stylish Headphones

    Who says cool headphones have to cost a fortune? Superior sound, a comfy fit, and a stunning design make Skinny Dip London's Pyrite Headphones ($43.73) the latest must-have export from across the pond.

  • Candles with a Hidden Surprise

    Candles with a Hidden Surprise

    Give your favorite ladies the gift that gives twice with Diamond Candles (starting at $19.99). Not only do they come in yummy scents — including Cupcake, Pink Macaron, and Hawaiian Coconut — but the gift recipient will also receive a pretty ring, along with a secret code. It'll reveal whether they've won an additional ring worth $100, $1,000 or $5,000 that they can choose from their collection.

  • Beautiful Robes

    Beautiful Robes

    Patterned robes make for pretty "getting ready" photo ops on the big day, and Etsy seller Singing Slowly offers stunning floral prints. A set of five comes out to $51 each, and you can have them completely customized by fabric to suit your bridesmaids' style and body shape (various quantities are available).

  • Engravable Charm Necklace

    Engravable Charm Necklace

    Search for bridal party gifts on Pinterest and other social shopping sites, and it quickly becomes evident that monogrammed items are on the upswing. After filtering through tons of offerings, these Engravable Charms from Stella & Dot ($39 and up) emerged as clear winners because of their high quality and affordable price point. Available in sterling silver or brass with gold plating.

  • Sugar Scrub Set

    Sugar Scrub Set

    Pamper the most important women in your life with the LALICIOUS Holiday Sugar Scrub Tower ($27). It contains scrubs in scrumptious holiday scents such as creamy eggnog, peppermint patty, and — our personal favorite — hot buttered rum, making their daily shower all the more blissful and leaving skin feeling silky-smooth.

  • Coffee Mug

    Coffee Mug

    Nothing says "you're my best friend" like a java pick-me-up. Coffee addicts will appreciate the Ban.do's Hot Stuff Thermal Mug ($18), which keeps their drink insulated on the go and features eye-catching metallic details. Include a gift card to their favorite coffee shop, and you're golden.

  • Holiday Gift Basket

    Holiday Gift Basket

    Even the pickiest bridesmaid of the bunch will be delighted by Lolli and Pops' curated gift boxes filled with premium sweets, which look like you spent hours picking and decorating (your secret is safe with us). Indulge them with the Cozy Cocoa Set ($49), which contains wintry favorites such as hot cocoa, two mugs, peppermint marshmallows, and 12-piece chocolate squares.

  • Lipstick Charms

    Lipstick Charms

    Pucker up! Celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution Mini Lipstick Charms ($39) is the perfect price point for bridesmaids. It showcases three matte lipsticks in universally flattering hues: "Amazing Grace" (a vintage tea rose), "Very Victoria" (a taupe nude), and "Red Carpet Red" (a glam ruby red).

  • Pashmina Scarf

    Pashmina Scarf

    Plush and ultra-soft, the Pashmina Scarf by Fox Blossom ($14) is a fantastic layering piece to help keep your bridesmaids warm and toasty. They can drape it around their shoulders or wear it as a scarf after the big day. It comes in a whopping 32 colors, so you're guaranteed to find one to match your wedding color scheme.

  • Necklace


    For jewelry that they'll be able to wear every day, not just at formal occasions like your wedding festivities, look no further than the Lafonn Halo Necklace ($100). This timeless pendant features a glittering halo surrounding a central stone, and it features two places to clasp the length, so bridesmaids can adjust it as needed.

  • Nail Polish Set

    Nail Polish Set

    Give the gift of twinkling toes and a lovely mani with this Nail Polish Candy Cane Set from Nails Inc. ($19). It features three party-ready shades, including "London's Calling" (nude), "Kensington High Street" (red wine), and "Knightsbridge Nights" (gold glitter).

  • Face Mask

    Face Mask

    Better than a Snapchat filter, the Face Inc Sheet Masks ($6) are packed with nutrients that will leave bridesmaids' skin glowing IRL. We're partial to "Flower Power" (a replenishing mask to treat dry and dehydrated skin). You can also pick from "Cat Nap" (for brightening), "Instant Detox" (for deep cleansing), and "40 Winks" (for anti-aging properties). Each only takes about 15 minutes to apply, and there's no need to rinse off afterward.

  • Jewelry Set

    Jewelry Set

    It's no secret that everything is better with a little sparkle. One of the best accessory deals we've spotted is the White-Hot Bridal Party Set from 7 Charming Sisters ($66.99). It consists of three pairs of asymmetrical crystal stud earrings for the 'maids, along with an antique gold-plated statement necklace to help the MOH stand out.

  • Rosé


    Veuve Clicquot Rich Rosé ($65) is a new champagne with a vivid pink hue that's designed to be served over ice in a wide-rim glass with fresh fruit like pineapple or pomegranate. Did we mention that the bottle even glows in the dark under backlight? In other words: It's perfect for girl's night. The delicious blend consists of 45% Pinot Noir, 40% Meunier, and 15% Chardonnay.

  • Personalized Mirror

    Personalized Mirror

    Snapping flawless selfies is a cinch with this colorful Purse Mirror from Personal Creations ($19.99) emblazoned with each bridesmaid's initials. Small enough to fit into a clutch or pocket, it even features a magnified mirror on one side so they can perfect that winged liner on the first try.

  • Jewelry Holder

    Jewelry Holder

    You're not the only one with pretty shiny rings to show off — help your bridesmaids corral their accessories with this cute-as-can-be Baby Elephant Ring Holder from Personal Creations ($34.99). Its upturned trunk is a symbol of good luck, and you can personalize the base with a name up to 9 characters.

  • Brush Set

    Brush Set

    Makeup mavens will get major use out of IT Cosmetics Brushes for Ulta All That Glitters Brush Set ($58). The shimmering case is packed with five ultra-soft brushes with dense bristles. Each brush is geared towards a different type of application, including powder, foundation, eyeshadow, concealer, and liner/brow.
