Bridal Party Gifts

Your best friends are doing you the honor of standing by your side for the big moment, so you want to express your thanks through a gift. But what do you get them? Here’s some ideas for planning your bridal party gifts.


For the groomsmen.

Cufflinks are always a classy choice. Whether personalized with their initials or their favorite sports team, they’re sure to use them again and again.



A popular choice with the guys, personalized flasks are often a gift that is appreciated. Just make sure they don’t “appreciate’ them too much until the reception.


A more recent trend has been to personalize your favorite footwear for a unique wedding look. More comfortable than formal footwear and twice as cool.


For the bridesmaids.

Every bridesmaids will love their gift when it is a designer handbag! Definitely a bridal party gift trend if your wedding budget allows.


Jewelry is a traditional gift given to bridesmaids. It saves them the additional expense and creates uniformity in your wedding day pictures.


Personalized bags, tank tops and more continue to be a bridal party gift trend.



If you’re a DIY bride, you can choose to create unique gifts for your bridal party, rather than going the store bought method. Some ideas include:

  • photo album of your friendship
  • poem in the recipient’s honor inside of a custom frame
  • a themed basic for the movie lover, chef, gardner, etc.
  • homemade lotions and bubble baths in beautiful, crystal bottles.

Another option for attendant gifts is to thank them for their friendship with personal time. You can choose a day to treat them to their favorite outings, such as a gourmet meal, round of golf, day at the spa or whatever would be appropriate for each attendant.

There is no “right amount” to spend on bridal party gifts, although some say the amount of money or time spent planning your wedding should be reflected in the gift. You may choose to give everyone identical gifts or make each unique, just make sure the monetary value is similar to avoid hurt feelings. You may choose to give the maid of honor and best man a more lavish present.

Beyond expressing your gratitude with gifts, your bridal party is sure to appreciate your heartfelt “thank you” throughout the planning process, showers, bachelor party and wedding day. Expressing those sentiments in a thank you letter after the wedding day is also appropriate.
