The 21 Best Bridal Party Gifts in 2022

Brides / Chloe Jeong

The people that make up your bridal party are some of the nearest and dearest. They’ve stood by your side through thick and thin, and now they'll be supporting you as your squad on the big day. They're also an integral part of your wedding journey—from celebrating your engagement to helping host a blow-out bachelorette party, they're part of the party from day one.

Whether you met them on the playground or were desk partners at your first job, you and your bridal party have a special bond that will only grow stronger as you share life’s milestones—like your wedding day! That’s why it’s important to show them just how much you appreciate their friendship with a thoughtful token of your appreciation. 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 says. "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 says. Think pretty earrings or a bedazzled frame with a photo of the two of you inside. Whether you indulge them with a fancy set of PJs or shower them in sparkling jewels, we've rounded up some of the best celebratory presents that they'll be sure to love.

What to look for in a bridal party gift

Think about what your bridal party members might need throughout the wedding weekend. Maybe it's a tumbler to stay hydrated, hand cream or fragrance to feel refreshed, a pretty robe, or favorite snacks. It's also a good idea to gift them something that feels special, personalized, and long-lasting—think custom jewelry or a chic clutch.

Dwight also loves to use tote bags for the bridal party. "Stuff them 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."

  • 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 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?

    If possible, it's a great idea to also send a small gift when you're "proposing" to your bridal party. It's definitely not necessary (a pretty card is ok too!), but it's nice let them know how truly excited you are to have them by your side on the big day.
