I know you guys have probably read a post like this so many times… But I am new here and need help! What are some good gift options for bridesmaids?? I am having a total of 3 and my budget is pretty small. Any ideas would be greatly helpful.

Can you state what your specific budget is? I personally vote for tailoring the BM gift to the specific person vs. getting matching necklaces for everyone. But if everyone has the same taste in jewelry, then go for it.

dojx: I want to say $30 per bridesmaid. They are all pretty much girly. I don’t have one that is completely the oposite of the other. I this point I think they would appreciate what I get them… LOL I think this is my problem…

trevino24: I’m buying all of my bridesmaids a lace cluth with a wrist strap off etsy. It’ll have their name on the inside, but I also figured everyone would enjoy having a small bag to carry their stuff around in the day of. Plus, it’ll match their dresses!

My go-to is Coach clutches from an outlet store. You can get them all clutches and customize the print/colour to them, and then fill with fun things they might need like mints, lip gloss, tissue, etc. You can easily stay within budget but still get useful, nice things.

trevino24: I ended up getting my girls all the same things (different scents/colours to match their personality) I gave them lip gloss, strawberry scented kleenex inside a wristlet and than I gave them a bracelet and bubble bath. There are tons of threads on wedding bee if you type in bridemaids gifts in the search box but some of the things I’ve seen are:
– Bath Robes for getting ready in
– Tote Bags
– Make up bags
– Paying for hair/make up on the day of the wedding **Some do not consider it a gift
– Picture Frames
– Gift cards for restaurants, spas
The list can go on and I’m sure you get the ideas haha. Hopefully this helps ya out a little bit! I’m sure whatever you do for your ladies, they’ll appreciate it, even if its just a heartfelt thank you!!

trevino24: Maybe treat them to a nice mani/pedi before the wedding.

trevino24: If they don’t have this already, you can get them the naked basics and primer! Those never go unused!

trevino24: Buy something that reflects their individual interests. If one of your girls likes books then get her something book related etc.

I got a tote bag with their monogram (theknotshop had a sale and i got them for less than 10 each) I am making a wash/wear undergarmet travel bag and a shoe travel bag to go in it, with a luggage tag with their monogram. I will probably end up gettnig earrings/necklaces too – for consistentcy in pictures, but I am not sure. SO far I have spent about $15 a person – but I am hand making most of my stuff.

You’ve gotten great suggestions! I really tried to think of getting their presents like getting their birthday presents and avoid anything that has to do with the wedding. So for my bridespeople:
- MOH – tote with quote from favorite book that she got me to read and book that she will like
- Bridesmaid 1 – tote with quote from our favorite song that we have a dance routine to and book that she will like
- Bridesmaid 2 – tote with quotes from our favorite TV show and framed pictures from Hubble (she’s an astrophysicist)
- Bridesguy 1 – Funny T-shirt
- Bridesguy 2 – bottle of rum
I’m also a big fan of paying for pedicures!

Check out theknotshop. They have tons of great sales. I got each of my 5 girls a monogramed tote and smaller bag for inside it. I’m going to put a few more goodies in the smaller bag: tissues, lip gloss, and a custom nail polish (https://www.etsy.com/shop/SparkleNailLacquer).
