From the moment your fiance proposed…
Your bridesmaids have always been there for you!They are more than ready to deal with your obligatory meltdowns, explain away your bridezilla moments, and throw you the best bridal shower and bachelorette parties possible. So why not repay them for all of their support with unique bridesmaid gifts that they are sure to love?
Giving your bridesmaids a gift is a tried and true tradition, but there is no need to panic over this task. Buying gifts for your friends is fun and should reflect the way you feel about them as well as their own personalities and interests while still remaining inside of your set budget; you want to show your appreciation to your friends, but you don’t want to break the bank as you do it. You’ll most likely want to get your maid/matron of honor something a bit more special due to their larger role in the wedding, so be sure to keep that in mind as you shop, too.
There are some traditional gifts that brides tend to fall back on, but that doesn’t mean you have to do the same. Here are some fun bridesmaid gift ideas that you can consider for the special girls in your life.

“Your bridesmaids deserve much more than the usual keychain or strand of faux pearls. Get creative and personal with these unique ideas.
1. Tickets to a musical or dinner theater
2. Magazine subscriptions
3. Headphones in her favorite color
4. Specialty playing cards
5. The latest best-selling book”
If you want to remain traditional when picking out your bridesmaid gifts, you can, of course. Consider things like a piece of timeless jewelry or a small decorative jewelry box. You can also get your friends something more practical like a purse that matches the color of their dress or a hair barrette that they can use on the big day. (Remember, anything that you want to have personalized will have to be done in advance to be ready in time to pass out the gifts.) Gift cards are also an option if you really can’t find anything that speaks to you as you shop.
When it comes to presenting your girls with their gifts…
Most brides tend to hand out the bridesmaid favors during the rehearsal dinner or before the ceremony when everyone is getting ready together. By doing this, you’ll ensure that any practical gift, like the ones just mentioned, will be used on the big day.
