While your wedding day is ultimately about the promise you’re making to your significant other, a beautiful aspect of the wedding tradition is the involvement of friends who have supported you along your individual, and relationship journeys.
One of the ways to show appreciation to your wedding party members is by giving gifts to those who have played an important role in the wedding planning and preparation.
We wanted to share a few ideas for unique, elevated, and practical gifts you can consider giving to those precious friends supporting your vows!
For the Bridesmaids, Maid of Honor, & Mothers
There’s something so sweet about personalized gifts, especially those that can be used during and after your wedding day or weekend. A few favorites?
Weekender Tote – A cute weekender tote is the perfect gift if you’re having a destination wedding or a lot of your bridesmaids are traveling. Amazon has a ton of cute options – we love this neutral, carry-on sized option. If you want to add a little extra, you can add a personalized luggage tag, or pack the inside with snacks, tissues, and other goodies.
Custom engraved YSL Lipstick – A perfect gift that your girls can use on wedding day! This option has a few beautiful colors, and is an elegant gift as is, or with custom engraving to make it extra special.
Tiny Letter Charm Necklace – These tiny letter tag necklaces are sweet gifts that can be worn on wedding day and beyond, and available in a few finishes for you to choose from.
Customizable Jewelry Case – We love the size of these chic jewelry cases, the cute color options, and the great reviews on this particular shop!
For the Groomsmen, Best Man, & Fathers
We love a gift that becomes incorporated into your friends’ every day lives, and will be a constant reminder of your appreciation and love for them!
Customizable Drink Tote + Cooler – We love a great looking and practical gift. These waterproof waxed canvas bags are perfect multi-use totes that can be customized with your guys’ names or initials.
Whiskey Decanter Set – These custom decanter sets are a super cool gift that will be reused and loved – and you can opt to add rocks glasses and/or an engraved box to make it extra special.
Tee off Tag – These custom tags go beyond the golf course and can be attached to luggage, office bags, and more. Both sides can be personalized with names or a personal message.
Custom Cigar Lighter – Perfect if your groomsmen will be enjoying cigars during the bachelor party or reception, these cool custom lighters come with a beautiful box that can also be custom engraved.
At the end of the day, your wedding should feel like a time of joy and celebration of your love story!
When it comes down to it, the most significant gift you’re giving to your wedding party is the invitation to stand with you while you make your vows. We encourage you to prioritize what feels closest to your heart when planning for your wedding day. That may mean a heartfelt, handwritten note in lieu of more elaborate wedding party gifts. But if you are stumped when dreaming up the perfect gifts for your people, we hope this little list helps.
