What Should I Get My Bridesmaids For Gifts?

Marriage is a beautiful thing, and you want your special day to be the absolute best it can be. You have been planning so much that it can be hard to keep track of everything. 


But your day is not complete without thinking about your leading ladies who have been there with you every step of the way. They’ve been there from the beginning: celebrating your engagement when you called excitedly that first night to planning your bachelorette party (which was the best night ever), all leading up to this one special day.

 

It’s hard to imagine a better group to have waiting for you when you walk down the aisle. So, whether you’ve known them your whole life or met them more recently, you know that they’re going to be there sharing this amazing day with you and your future spouse. 


In light of that, we’re here to help you figure out what gifts you should get for your bridesmaids to thank them for everything they’ve done to help you out.

 

When Should You Give Bridesmaid Gifts?


The answer is— any time really. Depending on the gift, it might be better to give the gifts in the week leading up to the wedding, or on the day itself when you’re all getting ready. Your actual wedding day is pretty busy, though, so you might not want to add one more thing to your to-do list. 


Another great opportunity is the rehearsal dinner, so they can show off their awesome new loot and enjoy being a part of your special day.

 

So, what fabulous bridesmaid gift options do you have for your leading ladies to pamper them and truly show your appreciation? Let’s take a look.

 

Face Masks

 

A face mask makes a great present for anyone. With all of the help your bridesmaids have put in to make your special day amazing, you want to make sure you get them something extra special without breaking your bank (because you’re probably already doing that to pay for the wedding).

 

So, why are so many people crazy about face masks? Probably because you can see and feel the difference within minutes of using one. There are tons of benefits for all types of face masks, but there are some super fabulous ones when it comes to using a vitamin C facial mask like Gleamin’s. Let’s look at what vitamin C does:

 

  • • Vitamin C can be used as part of an anti-aging regimen because it improves collagen production. This is key in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen helps the body to tighten the skin and stop it from sagging. 

 

  • • Vitamin C is acidic and helps exfoliate the skin. It removes the dead skin cells from the surface, which leaves you looking smooth and bright. The antioxidants also help to reduce dark spots and discoloration.

 

  • • Vitamin C helps hydrate the skin and helps you retain moisture, so it’s great for dehydrated skin. It improves your skin’s softness and elasticity to give you a plumper and more youthful look. 

 

  • • Dry skin is at a higher risk of getting sunburned, so you need to take extra precautions from those deadly UV rays. Vitamin C can act as a natural barrier. It also works if you already got a sunburn, because vitamin C improves the rate of cell regeneration, so your face can replace damaged cells with healthy new ones.

 

  • • Finally, vitamin C calms the red parts of the skin to help reduce irritation and improves your complexion. 

 

Most face masks are quick and easy to use. With this amazing gift, you don’t have to worry about giving your bridesmaids something complicated. With a face mask, you simply apply it to a freshly cleansed face, let it sit for the allotted time, remove it with warm water, pat dry, and voila!

 

Gleamin offers an amazing clay mask rich in vitamin C and turmeric, along with plenty of other special ingredients. A clay mask is suitable for all skin types; the only thing that differs is how often you use it. 


For people with dry skin, it makes sense to use a hydrating face mask more often, around two to three times a week, whereas, with more oily skin, you’d only use it once or twice a week. You can even give this one ahead of time, so all your ladies can have beautiful, glowing skin for their trip down the aisle.

 

Headbands 

 

And not just any headband. This one is quick and easy to put on to hold back those fly-aways from your face while you apply your mask. That’s right, not only does Gleamin carry an awesome face mask, but we also carry the right accessories.

 

This stretchy pink satin headband is sure to be a hit with your bridesmaids and can be worn out of the house too. It’s a one size fits all headband that keeps everything cute with no mess when you want to apply that face mask.  


Bath Bombs 

 

Who doesn’t love a nice, steamy relaxing bath? Bath bombs are a fun item to gift your leading ladies. The night before the wedding, they can recharge before waiting for you at the end of the aisle and then dancing the night away. Or, post-wedding, they can use their bath bomb to unwind after the long hours spent at your wedding and reception.

 

Every lady needs some luxury in her life, especially after all of her hard work in making your day great. Bath bombs also come in pampering kits, which might also have lip or eye care included as an extra bonus for your dearest friends that will leave them basking in a glow.

 

Matching Robes 

 

This has become a traditional gift for the morning of your wedding. You can primp in matching robes when you’re doing your hair and makeup the morning of, and what’s cuter than that? 

 

Depending on what look you’re going for, you can find long flowing robes or shorter, chic robes. And what bridesmaid wouldn’t love a soft, satiny robe expressly for lounging around in? You can tell your bridesmaids that they deserve some rest and relaxation after everything they’ve done for you.

 

Whether you choose robes in the color scheme of your wedding and have everyone’s names embroidered on the front pocket or just go for comfort, you’ll be sure to give everyone a silky soft gift that they can wear on their lazy Sunday mornings.

 

If robes aren’t quite your thing, you could always consider matching pajamas. It’s a departure from tradition, but sometimes we all need a little something new. These can also be personalized, and can either be in your wedding colors or any pattern you like.  

 

Alternatively, if your wedding is outside and you’re worried your girls might get chilly, you can get everyone pashminas to match the dresses you lovingly picked out for them. They’ll be soft, warm ways to keep cozy in the chill and will assuredly be used in the future.

 

Candles 

 

A go-to gift is always candles, and why shouldn’t it be? Candles come in all sorts of scents and sizes and are the perfect way to keep your house smelling sweet. 


You can choose candles in your wedding colors or scents based on the flowers in your bouquet. You can even choose scents based on your past experiences with each bridesmaid to make them even more personal.

 

There are tons of therapeutic scents that can help your bridesmaids enjoy some downtime after they make your big day amazing. They deserve it. They can arrange those candles around the bathtub with their bath bomb, set the mood with some essential oils, and take a well-deserved break. Who doesn’t love an at-home, do it yourself spa day?

 

Tote Bags

 

These are a great option when you’re looking for something useful. You can create customized tote bags embroidered with everyone’s names or nicknames. They can use them leading up to the wedding to show off the honor of being in your bridal party and transport everything they need.

 

If you have a destination wedding, tote bags are especially useful. If you want, throw in a cute sleep mask to let your girls get a good night’s sleep before your nuptials.

 

You can keep the things you need close to you, including a compact lipstick to keep everything looking fresh. If your ladies love to travel, they’ll love a personalized bag. What better way to carry your shopping or necessities than with something adorable that holds a lot and helps you remember a fun, great day with your friends?

In Summary 

 

Though it is tradition, you don’t have to feel obligated to give your bridesmaids gifts, but a little appreciation is always well received. Your wedding party has probably been integral in planning your day and making sure that everything goes off without a hitch. A small gift is a thoughtful token of gratitude that won’t go unnoticed, and your beloved friends will love the gesture.

 

They likely pitched in for your bridal shower, organized your bachelorette party, and helped out by cooperating with the dress fittings, all while letting you keep your cool in the midst of the craziness that comes with wedding planning. Say thank you with a sweet little gift that’s just for them.

 

The best gifts are personal ones that show how much you care about your ladies, even when it’s your special day. You don’t have to break the bank to let them know you appreciate them. Remember, in the end, it’s always the thought that counts.
