Being a bridesmaid is a big responsibility! Not only are they there to provide love and support on the big day, but they are often part of the crew that ensures things are running smoothly over the course of the wedding planning process. For all that they do to help the bride during this milestone, it can be special to get them a sentimental gift as a thank you!
Below are some nice gift ideas that your bridal party will appreciate and use for longer than just the bachelorette party!
Bridesmaids Gifts They'll Love
1. Monogrammed Pajama Sets
Surprise your bridal crew with comfortable monogrammed pajama sets for your bachelorette getaway! Make sure you gather everyone’s sizes and initials ahead of time for monogramming.

7. Disposable Cameras
Disposable cameras are making a comeback! Gift each person a camera and a $15 CVS gift card, so they can fill the roll with memories and pay for the development of the photos after the weekend is over. It will be fun to see what everyone captures during your weekend of quality time and is a great follow-up hangout for the whole group. Order simple scrapbooks on Amazon and host a wine night to share photos and reminisce!

12. Little Words Project Bracelet
Instead of something generic like ‘bridesmaid,’ gift your friends each a special Little Words Project bracelet with a word that you associate with them. This meaningful gift is meant to connect friends and strangers. The Little Words Project was started with the guiding principle that one word can change things for the better. The company describes their simple jewelry pieces as something meant to be worn and eventually passed on to someone else, “paying kindness forward, one bracelet at a time.”

Let Them Know How Much They Mean to You
Your bridesmaids love you dearly. That’s why they are there to walk with you through this insanely special season! But it doesn’t hurt to show them how much it means to you to have them there. If they aren’t big fans of receiving gifts, tap into their primary love language to do something special. Write them all notes or letters sharing what they mean to you, or plan a picnic dedicated to all of them. No matter what you choose to do, they will surely feel all the love!
