What to Look for in a Bridal Party Gift
Think: a tumbler to stay hydrated, hand cream or fragrance to feel refreshed, a pretty robe, or favorite snacks. Then, consider gifts that feel special and personalized like custom jewelry that she'll wear long after the ceremony.
Olga Pomeransky, manager of Best for Bride offers some advice when trying to pick out. a gift. "Instead of buying lavish gifts, think about getting them things that they’ll be able to use every day. Makeup bags with their initials on them, blinged-out coffee cups, a jewelry box engraved with their name, etc. Taking the time to really choose a great bridal gift will go a long way with your bridesmaids. And to go step further, maybe buy each bridesmaid a different gift tailored to their own personal likings? This will show them how much time and effort you put into their gift and they’ll really love you for that."

A gift certificate for a massage, facial, or even a pedicure will always be appreciated.
Heather Dwight has some ideas for a unique gift. "Perhaps a day with the girls is more up your alley. A spa day is a perfect way to relax with your favorite gals and thank them for sticking by your side. Whether it's just manicures or a full day of treatments, a relaxing day will give everybody a chance to unwind before the special day. Many host special private parties, specifically made for a girls day out!"

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.
