You don’t only stand with your bridesmaids on your wedding day, you stand with them in sisterhood 365 days a year. The girl gang you’ve elected to the highest court, aka being a member of your bridal party, deserves a special treat for not only helping you through wedding planning, but being the badass women they already are. Luckily we’ve found gifts that do both.
These feminist bridesmaids gifts will get all your pals riled up about the woman power they’re packing and make them proud to show it off. While International Women’s Day is enough of a reason to celebrate your ’maids, these gifts are perfect for a bridesmaid proposal, bachelorette gear, or day-of-wedding thank-yous. Not only will your friends feel empowered rocking jewelry, bathing suits, and T-shirts with strong-women sayings emblazoned across them, but they will actually be empowering other women. Some of these items give back to women-focused causes.
Whether you’re planning an International Women’s Day surprise gift, getting your matching outfits together for a bachelorette weekend, or a just-because token, these 15 feminist bridesmaids gifts will help your ’maids feel like the strong women you know they are.
