Quirky and beautiful bridesmaid gift ideas

A pretty gift box

As Brides magazine says: “Bridesmaids are often the unsung heroes of wedding planning”. Throughout the build up to your wedding, and on the big day itself, your bridesmaids will offer you invaluable support. From helping you choose the perfect dress, to throwing you the hen party of a lifetime, your friends will be there every step of the way.

To thank bridesmaids for their help, support, and friendship, many brides choose to give small presents to their bridal party on the morning of the wedding. A great way to show you care, these token presents will help to get your day off to a great start. To help you find the perfect gifts for your bridesmaids, here are a few beautiful and quirky gift ideas that will leave your friends speechless.

Initial necklaces

Each one of your bridesmaids is completely unique and each will bring something special to your wedding day. Show how much you appreciate their individuality by giving out personalised necklaces complete with each lady’s initial. A great addition to the wedding outfit and a present they’ll treasure forever, initial necklaces are a fantastic way to show you care.

Personalised pyjamas

If you’ve invited all of your bridesmaids for a sleepover the night before your wedding, make the occasion extra special by giving out personalised pyjamas for your bridal party to enjoy. A fantastic way to add a bit of fun to your pre-wedding celebrations, pyjamas with your bridesmaids’ initials or nicknames on will help to set the scene and will look fantastic in the ‘getting ready’ photos the next day.


If you’re searching for a present that’s going to stand the test of time, a small, specially selected plant could be just what you’re looking for. Buy each of your bridesmaids a fruit tree, a rose bush, a wisteria or another plant that will grow and flourish as the years go by.

Spa vouchers

When you’re tired, hungover and worn out, there are few better ways to relax than an indulgent spa treatment. Why not give each of your bridesmaids a voucher for a massage, facial or spa day and help them to unwind after the excitement and fun of the wedding?

Hair and make up

To ensure your bridesmaids look and feel their best on the big day, treat them all to a professional hair and make up session on the morning of your wedding. A lot of the time, hair and make up are reserved for the bride only, with the bridesmaids left to beautify themselves. By splashing out on a beauty session for the whole bridal party you can show you’re no bridezilla and make sure everyone walks down the aisle in style.
