Personalized Bridesmaids Gifts - Ideas For Gifts the Girls Will Love & Keep

Updated on April 28, 2013

Searching for ideas for personalized bridesmaids gifts?

The girls are such a wonderful support before and during your wedding, you really want to say thank you with gifts they'll love.

I really recommend giving gifts that your maid of honor and your bridesmaids will keep and use for a long time after the wedding. They'll definitely appreciate your thoughtfulness!

As you explore my list of suggestions for personalized bridesmaids gifts, think about each individual woman.

  • What do you know about her?
  • What are her tastes?
  • What would she really like?

A gift chosen specifically with the recipient in mind is always best, and the girls in your wedding party will love you for it!

Getting Ready Outfits

Here's a fun way to stand out even before the ceremony!

Give your bridesmaids outfits to wear while they are having their hair and make-up done, before they get dressed in their official dresses for the wedding

You could start by providing individually monogrammed bathrobes, so that the girls feel special as soon as the day begins.

Then you could personalize comfortable hoodies or t-shirts with something fun. Maybe have "Bridesmaid" or "Maid of Honor" printed on them, or maybe some hearts or something romantic if you would like the outfits be able to be worn again. Of course, have an extra one made for the bride.

Depending on your budget, adding flip flops or ugg boots would be a great idea too!

Personalized Jewelry

Whether it's for wearing at your wedding, or to keep and wear on other occasions, items of jewelry make great personalized bridesmaids gifts.

You could engrave an adorable pendant or a bracelet, or even the inside of a ring.

I suggest that you only make the bridesmaid's name or initials visible when she's wearing it, as after the wedding she probably won't wear something displaying your names or the wedding date.

One of my friends gave all her bridesmaids silver lockets with a picture of each girl's mom inside. They were gorgeous, and such a beautiful idea.

Instead of, or as well, you could give a personalized jewelry box, or jewelry stand, to each bridesmaid. A really original idea would be to buy those little figurine jewelry stands and dress them in exactly the same outfit as each bridesmaid is wearing!

Purses & Bags

You can't really go wrong if you give a beautiful coin purse or clutch bag. Go with a basic color such as black so that your bridesmaids will be sure to use them after the wedding.

A very clever idea is to have reversable purses made. Use it one way for the wedding, and then have each bridesmade choose the fabric for the reverse side of her bag.

Wedding Day Survival Kit

For very thoughtful personalized bridesmaid gifts, survival kits for the day of the wedding are perfect.

Fill a bag with small samples of everything needed to make the day go well for each of your girls.

Here are some ideas for items you could include:

  • Compact mirror
  • Comb
  • Nail file
  • Tissues
  • Towelettes
  • Hairspray
  • Mini sewing kit
  • Deodorant
  • Moisturiser
  • Handcream
  • Sunblock
  • Lip balm
  • Bandaids
  • Breath mints
  • Headache tablets
  • Shoe pads

You could put everything in a personalized makeup bag, or use the actual purse that will be carried at the wedding.

Bag of Treats

As an alternative to the survival kit, you could give each bridesmaid a monogrammed tote, and fill it with special little gifts.

You know them best, and you can make each bag as individual as they are!

Here are just some suggestions for gifts you could add:

  • Personalized jewelry
  • Pashmina
  • Manicure set
  • Makeup for the wedding
  • Personalized stationery
  • Keyring
  • Hair accessories
  • Perfume

Useful Keepsakes

Keepsakes which are also functional make wonderful gifts, and will be both appreciated and treasured.

A beautiful vase or a travel perfume bottle are both personalized bridesmaids gifts they'll love and use.

Photo frames come in all shapes and sizes, and can be engraved with your message, either on the front or on the back.

Hipflasks are traditionally more for the guys, but I've seen some gorgeous brightly colored really feminine hipflasks which would look great monogrammed.

Personalized iPod or iPad cases can be as elegant or as fun as you want, and while they are not normally considered keepsakes, perhaps they will be in the future!

Another modern idea is a very stylish personalized wine holder along with a bottle or two of your bridesmaid's favorite wine.


Your bridesmaids are a very special part of your wedding, and it's fun to reward them with gifts they'll like and use.

Hopefully these ideas for personalized bridesmaids gifts have given you lots of inspiration!
