The people that make up your bridal party are an integral part of your wedding journey—from celebrating your engagement to helping you host a blow-out bachelorette party. And now they'll be standing by your side on the big day. What better way to show appreciation for your closest friends than by celebrating them with a special gift at your wedding? Whether you met them on the playground or at your first job, your bridesmaids will love the thoughtful token of your friendship. To help you choose the perfect bridal party gifts for your squad, we turned to wedding experts for their take on choosing the right bridal party gifts.
Meet the Expert
Bridal salon manager Olga Pomeransky recommends useful presents they'll use every day, long after the wedding has passed. "Makeup bags with their initials on them, blinged-out coffee cups, or jewelry boxes engraved with their names are all great gifts," she said. "And if you want to go a step further, add another gift that's tailored to each bridesmaid's personal tastes."
Event planner Heather Dwight advises that unforgettable shine is the way to go. "You can’t go wrong with a little bit of sparkle!" she said. Think pretty earrings or a bedazzled frame with a photo of the two of you inside.
Whether you want to indulge them with a fancy set of PJs or shower them in sparkling jewels, we've researched and rounded up the best celebratory presents for every style and budget. We even went the extra mile and ordered many of these products so our editors could evaluate them in The Lab, our Manhattan testing facility, for the most authentic and personalized reviews possible.
For a slumber party with your crew the night before the wedding, the EMU Australia Women's Mayberry Slippers make a cute and cozy gift. We also love the Uncommon Goods Minute Mimosa Sugar Cube Trio and The Engraver Engraved Bridesmaid Flask for a boozy treat with your bridal party before saying "I do."
Read on for the best bridal party gifts.
Divine Bridal Shop Bridesmaid Robes
A large range of sizes available
Some threads were loose at the hem
Limited monogram color/thread options
Deck your squad out in these lovely floral cotton robes, perfect for day-of prep and beyond. They come in a range of vibrant shades to match your palette—or to mix and match so that each person has one that fits their vibe. Packaged in an organza bag, it's ready to gift right away!
Associate Fashion Editor Erika Reals tried this robe and was not disappointed: "The quality is surprisingly good, especially for the low price point," she commented. She's interested to see how it holds up over time, but she felt that the fabric was lightweight and had a soft feel that made it comfortable to wear. "Although you can tell in the details it's not an expensive product, it's still good quality for the price," said Reals. "It would do its job well as a getting ready robe on the wedding day"
Reals also appreciated the range of color options (18 to be exact!): "You're likely to find one to match your own wedding's color scheme. Plus there's an option to add monograms to each robe, making them personalized to each bride or bridesmaid." When it came to the monogram, Reals didn't love the sparkly gold font. "It would be nice if personalization could go one step further—I would have liked the opportunity to choose the font and color of the monogram."
Price at time of publish: $28 for One Size (0-12 US) in Wine/Burgundy
"This robe is definitely a good value for the price. It has no super noticeable flaws and for under $15, it seems like a great deal–especially if you're bulk ordering for a bridal party. It would be perfect for someone who likes floral prints and bright colors. —Erika Reals, Associate Fashion Editor
Le Rose Gifts Bridesmaid Pajamas
The bag that the pajamas comes in feels a little cheap
More of an investment
Luxurious satin pajamas? Yes, please! These chic PJs come with embroidered monograms that can be customized with your bridesmaids' initials and your wedding date. Your bridal party will look—and feel—like the queens that they are when they slip into this cozy getup.
Senior Editor Shelby Wax tested these pajamas and loved the look and feel of the fabric. "The satin is super soft and smooth and the construction of the garment itself is well done," she observed. "The shorts have an adjustable drawstring so you can get sizing just right, and they have pockets—which is always a great feature to have in clothing." Wax also liked that the product came in a white satin drawstring bag (making it gift-ready!), but wished that the bag was crafted from the same high-quality material as the pajamas.
For group gifting, these PJs were definite winners. "The style is chic and the monogram lends a nice and classic touch," said Wax. "I also appreciate that letters are stitched into the top."
Price at time of publish: $52 for No Embroidery
"The pajamas are super cozy and soft, and the personalized monogram really takes it to the next level. I definitely want to wear these on a regular basis!" —Shelby Wax, Senior Editor
Mod Party Bridesmaid Tumblers Set
Personalized sticker may fade or peel over time
When it comes to wedding-day essentials, staying hydrated tops the list, so these personalized water bottles are bound to come in handy. Made of BPA-free acrylic, they feature metallic tops to add a bit of bling to your daily H2O.
"I think some script fonts can look cheesy, but the one on these tumblers feels very elevated," said Senior Editor Jesa Calaor. "My only small concern is how the personalization will last over time, as the letters are white vinyl stickers instead of etched on the plastic. (Will they stain? Will they peel with multiple hand-washes?)." Despite this, Calaor found that the overall quality of the tumblers was high for the price point.
Calaor also appreciates that the tumbler lid can be used as a sip-top or with a straw, so it's extra useful for on-the-go hydration, no matter the activity. "These are exactly as advertised—I'm so very happy with them and excited to give them as gifts to my bridesmaids!"
Price at time of publish: $16
"I love that these tumblers are budget-friendly—under $20 for five personalized, reusable items? It's a steal" —Jesa Calaor, Senior Editor
LLD Gifts By Lauren Lash Bridal Purse
Good quality and value
Chain feels a little flimsy
The sides fold in when the clutch is closed, leaving less room for valuables
Here’s a gift that brings on the glam. This acrylic and gold crossbody purse is an elegant accessory for the special people in your wedding party. Choose a color that matches your palette and personalize it with names for a gift they can use both on and after your wedding day.
Commerce Director Jessica Mahgerefteh tried out the clutch, opting for the clear acrylic version with gold lettering to spell out her name. The gold hardware matches the text and felt sturdy. "It's a bag that can be used both day and night," she said. "I think it's versatile and would match well with most outfits.
Mahgerefteh found the chain to be a little flimsier than expected, but liked the fact that it is removable." You have the option to wear it as a crossbody or shoulder bag, or to hold it in your palm as a clutch," she commented. "The bag is also a good size. It's big enough to hold a cell phone, wallet, keys, lipstick, and a few additional essentials." Mahgerefteh said that while she likes clear bags, some people may not want the contents of their purses to be visible. If that's the case, she recommends going with either the black or white color option.
Price at time of publish: $20 for Plain-No Writing
"This clutch has an elegant look that can be dressed up or down, and the personalization is a fun little touch. I would be happy to receive this as a gift, and would surely buy it for someone else." —Jessica Mahgerefteh, Commerce Director
The Painted Press Speckled Minimalist Ring Dish
Not a high-quality ceramic
Some may not prefer matte finish
Uneven paint application
Ring in your wedding day with a personalized touch. This handmade jewelry dish is perfect as a standalone gift or added to a larger box of goodies. Custom-stamped with initials, this one will hold their treasures safely—and they'll think of you every time they use it.
"I ordered this product for my friends who are getting married later this year," commented Associate Fashion Editor Erika Reals. "Although I was disappointed in a few aspects, I think my friends will still love the gift and appreciate the thoughtfulness." Reals liked the customization options and handmade quality of the dish but felt that the clay material was a little different than traditional glazed ceramics that she was familiar with. "It has a matte finish and feels a little less high-end than I was expecting." At the same time, the material was extremely durable and bounced back without breaking when dropped on the floor.
Reals appreciated the packaging that the product arrived in: "It came in a muslin cotton drawstring bag that's stamped with the brand's log," she said. "It's a nice touch that really makes the gift feel handmade and extra personalized."
Price at time of publish: $24 for Floral Add-on
"For the price, I think it's a very giftable item that people would enjoy. If you're wanting a personalized item that feels handmade, this is definitely a great option." —Erika Reals, Associate Fashion Editor
Mod Party Personalized Floral Compact
Here’s a gift that’s bound to come in handy on the big day. These pretty compact mirrors make it easy for your leading ladies to check their lipstick one last time before heading down the aisle or hitting it on the dance floor. Plus, they’re the perfect size to carry in a clutch.
Choose from yellow gold, rose gold, or silver bases, and then customize with one of the 13 color options (including a brushy floral) to coordinate with your wedding palette colors. Gift this to your bridal party by itself, or along with an assortment of coordinated accessories (think makeup bags, eye masks, and other getting-ready necessities).
Price at time of publish: $12 for No Box
Naves Design Personalized Foldover Clutches
Material feels high-end
Includes pocket for organization
Slightly expensive if you're buying for a larger bridal party
Foil sticker in the packaging felt cheap
It will be a down-to-every-detail moment when your bridal party appears with these matching clutches. Made of high-quality vegan leather and custom printed with gold initials, they’re refined enough for the wedding reception and chic enough to use after the big day.
Senior Editor Shelby Wax tested the clutch and was a fan of both the material and design: "The vegan leather is pretty soft, the interior is lined and includes a large pocket for organization, and the gold monogram is a nice quality," she said. "The colors offered are classic neutrals that can easily work with lots of outfits and help the bag serve as a versatile piece."
While Wax felt that the quality of the clutch was high, she acknowledged that it's a slightly expensive gift for a bridesmaid (especially if you have a large bridal party). For the price, she would have liked there to be a detachable strap: "I think would really improve the product since clutches aren't always the most convenient item to carry around," she said. She also felt that the packaging left something to be desired: "The bag arrived with a weird, sticky foil piece to help set the fold within the clutch," she said.
Price at time of publish: $220
"The product as a whole is a great piece, and the monogram adds a fun personalized touch if gifting to a group of friends." —Shelby Wax, Senior Editor

After the festivities are over, your bridesmaids may need a little downtime. So invite your besties to kick up their feet and relax by the light of these personalized candles. They come in a range of soothing scents—think lemongrass or sage—and make for a thoughtful self-care gift.
Price at time of publish: $13 for Pink 200ml
The Engraver Engraved Bridesmaid Flask
Includes drawstring bag for easy gifting
A bit expensive if you're buying for a group
Not a fit for people who don't drink
Fancy flasks will make the wedding day festivities that much more fun. These lovely canisters come custom engraved with a name and delicate floral design. It's a gift that's both pretty and useful, especially when it's time for the post-ceremony celebrations to begin.
Erica Reals thought that the quality of the flask was excellent: "It has a substantial weight to it and doesn't feel like lightweight, cheap metal," she noticed. "It also has a good thickness to it, which I would imagine keep your liquids at a good temperature. The engraving looks nice, as well, and it was more high quality than I was expecting." Reals did wish that there were more personalization options available beyond the traditional font and design: "I would have preferred something more minimalist if there were other styles available."
Reals did appreciate the gifting touches that the brand included. "This flask is packed inside a muslin cloth bag that has a drawstring closure and is stamped with the brand's logo, which is a nice touch", she said. "Since it comes with the gift bag, it's ready to be gifted right away or shipped directly to the recipient."
Price at time of publish: $50
"I would be stoked to get this as a gift, whether as part of a wedding party or as a bachelorette party favor. It's something that seems will have a long lifespan and may even be an heirloom I could pass down to others in the family." —Erika Reals, Associate Fashion Editor

Wear it on its own, or layer it with other delicate jewelry pieces—it's a stellar gift for your outta-this-world squad.

Zazzle Botanical Gold Grenner Personalized Tote Bag
A little flimsy
Only one motif available
Tote bags make a great standalone gift, but they can also be used to package additional goodies for your bridal party. This canvas tote has a delicate watercolor botanical illustration and is customized with a name for a pretty personalized present.
Senior Editor Maggie Kreienberg found that the tote felt flimsy, but wasn't surprised based on the product description and price. "The size is great—you can carry a good amount of items inside and it doesn't look too big when you carry it on your shoulder," she said.
The customization and design options were slightly limited for this budget bag, but the brand offered an unexpected personalized twist. "While the neutral canvas fabric color doesn't change on the tote, you can customize the color of the canvas straps—I think that's a really fun touch!"
Price at time of publish: $13
"I like how you can personalize this product with a name, making it a great gift for bridesmaids! This is a product that you are probably buying multiple of for members of your wedding party—I think it's a good price point to pay for a custom bag of decent quality." —Maggie Kreienberg, Editor
Minted Garden Club Snap Tote by Angela Marzuki
Personalized name tag
Brushed-copper snap closure
100% cotton construction
Lack of color palette options for this design
Straps may not hold up over time
If you’re looking for a bag that’s more than just your average tote, here it is. This 100% cotton canvas bag features a bold, garden-inspired print and a brushed copper snap closure. It comes complete with a personalized, embossed leather tag for a gift that goes above and beyond. Your bridal party can use this to carry all their wedding day necessities, then save it for everyday style and functionality after the festivities wind down.
"This tote is a great budget-friendly option for a bridesmaid gift or flower girl gift," said Social Media Editor Araziel Jackson. "And if you're a floral lover, it is the perfect gift for yourself or the foundation for bridal party gift bags."
Jackson admired how the leather straps match the leather personalized name tag but questioned the durability of the straps with use over time. She especially liked the brushed-copper snap to keep valuables safe: "The snap closure is one of my favorite parts because it allows you to close the bag while still giving you easy access to the items inside," she said.
Price at time of publish: $36
"This tote is a great choice for all your spring and summer needs. The floral cotton fabric is perfect for a day at the beach or running errands on a warm spring day." —Araziel Jackson, Associate Social Media Editor

These chic, monogrammed jewelry cases make it easy for your crew to pack up their diamonds and pearls in preparation for your big day. Made of high-quality vegan leather, these cases come in a variety of shades, so they can suit each person's style or your wedding palette.
Senior Commerce Editor Kate Donovan found the case to be sturdy and liked the quality of the fabric and the monogram. "The fabric is coated with some sort of water-resistant material, so it feels durable and I love the color palette," she commented. "Inside, the compartments feel compact, but with more than enough space for a nice selection of jewelry. I also definitely appreciate that it all zips closed so everything stays safe and contained."
As a gift, the price of the case was a deterrent for Donovan: "It might be too pricey if you have a lot of bridesmaids, but it would be perfect for a smaller bridal party or a maid of honor (along with a personalized necklace or another special gift)," she said.

What To Look For in a Bridal Party Gift
Consider the needs of bridal party
Think about what your bridal party members might need throughout the wedding weekend. Maybe it's a tumbler to stay hydrated, a hand cream or fragrance to feel refreshed, a pretty robe (our go-to pick on this list is the Divine Bridal Shop Bridesmaid Robes), or favorite snack. Your bridal party's needs may also be reflected by the location of your wedding—think small bottles of bug spray or sunscreen for a beach event.
Add custom touches
It's a great idea to gift them something that feels special, personalized, and long-lasting. Think custom jewelry or a chic clutch, like the LLD Gifts By Lauren Lash Bridal Purse, that they'll use again and again for years to come.
Fill up a gift bag
Dwight also loves to use tote bags for the bridal party. "Stuff them with goodies based on the personality of each bridesmaid. Is she a total fashionista? Fill the bag with a gift card to her favorite store, magazines, or fun accessories. Is she a yoga or fitness queen? Pack her new tote with a fabulous yoga outfit or a trendy new mat." In particular, we love the Zazzle Botanical Gold Grenner Personalized Tote Bag because it's affordable, customizable, and just the right size—it's big enough for several items but doesn't look bulky on the shoulder.
What types of experiential gifts are good for a bridal party gift?
"A spa day is a perfect way to relax with your favorite gals and thank them for sticking by your side," recommends Dwight. "Whether it's just manicures or a full day of treatments, it will give everybody a chance to unwind together." If your bridal party is scattered geographically, send each person a gift certificate for a spa that's local to them.
Should I make a bridal party gift box or bag?
It's possible to buy pre-made gift sets, but it's also easy to make your own. Choose several small personalized items like a wine tumbler, compact, or piece of jewelry to start, and add in beauty products, day-of essentials, or self-care treats.
Should I give a gift when I ask them to be part of my bridal party?
