Your bridesmaids are the ladies who've helped you plan, have thrown you an unforgettable shower and bachelorette, and of course — will be by your side on the biggest day of your life. So, when it comes to giving them a littlel something to say thank you for all of their support, it should be extra special. Any of these LA boutiques are perfect for finding a gift that's unique, thoughtful, and one-of-a-kind.

This Los Angeles-based leather accessories designer has three stores within the city limits: Silverlake, West Hollywood, and Santa Monica. Her beautiful clutches come in a rainbow of shades — and if you feel like splurging, each piece can easily be monogrammed with your bridesmaids' initials. This shop also designs and sells jewelry pouches, coin pouches, and leather luggage tags. If you want to add a little something extra for your maid of honor or in each bridesmaid's gift bag, there is a delicious selection of candles and other fun goodies like lip balm and jewelry to purchase.
This Montana Avenue store has been a lingerie and loungewear staple since the 70s.

While you're there, you may also want to pick up a lingerie set for your honeymoon from Only Hearts' beautiful bralette collections — with exquisite underpinnings in every color and fabric.
