Top 25 gift ideas for your bridal party

Top 25 gift ideas for your bridal party

Bridal parties.   Whether you’ve chosen your sisters, or your besties you need to find the perfect way to thanks them.

Sometimes it’s so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of planning and organising that you forget to give a thank you to your go-to girls (or guys),

These are the ones that planned your bachelorette party.  Organised the perfect bridal shower.  And listened with a smile at the months (or years) of wedding planning. 

How do you say thanks?

We’ve got your back.

The best bridal party gift is one you've put thought into.

If you’ve asked them to be with you on your wedding day they obviously mean a lot to you.

And that means being able to find the perfect gift, something that they will love.

That might mean a personalised gift for each person, or putting together the perfect little gift basket.

Here are some of our favourite ideas from around the web

1. Some cute pajamas

Getting ready can take hours.

How about being cute & comfortable in an adorable pajama set.

This one from Peter Alexander looks perfect for sipping champagne while getting your makeup done.

2. A custom phone case

How about a custom phone case that’s personalised for each attendant?

Check out sites like Shutterfly, Printcious or Zazzle to see what you can create.

3. A crystal infused water bottle

Stay hydrated in between the glasses of champagne with crystal infused water.

We love these bottles from Balance and Believe

You can choose from Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz,  Amethyst, Smokey Quartz or Obsidian.

4. The perfect polish

A nude manicure is the perfect look for any wedding party.

Try the Essie nudes collection.  Get one each for your bridal party, and a couple for yourself.

Because we can never have too much nail polish.

5. A mask pack

You might be the one jetting away on your honeymoon, but that doesn’t mean that your besties don’t deserve the mile high treatment.

Check out this perfect little pamper kit from Patchology (available at Mecca)

6. A cocktail kit

And while we are talking about flights how about amping up the offerings on your next flight with this Champagne Carry-On Cocktail Kit from Uncommon Goods.

Not a fan of Champagne Cocktails? Check out the Margarita, or G&T kits.

7. The best lip balm

For the girls that like to look after their lips look no further than Lip Shit. 

Despite the name it’s got all the best shiz in it.

My favourite is Lemonade Hibiscus, but I also love Raspberry Lemongrass and Apple Ginger.  There’s a flavour perfect for every pout.

8. A bag she'll use every week

Try Zazzle, Printcious or Vistaprint for one of these adorable custom totes, for a gift your girls will use forever.

Create your own design, or pick from one of the hundreds that have already been created.

9. A girl gang ring

Let your girls flaunt the fact that they are in your tribe with these awesome Girl Gang rings from Wanderlust + Co (available at The Iconic)

10. A bangle that lets her be

Choose from one of the handcrafted bracelets from Be.Bangles.

I’m partial to this “Everything I am you helped me to be”, but choose the design that’s going to resonate the best with your girls.

Sidenote *Be.Bangles” have THE BEST customer service <3


11. The 'unbreakable' umbrella

It wouldn’t be Melbourne without recommending an umbrella.

Forget about strong winds turning them inside out.  The best, and possibly best looking, umbrellas you can get for your gifts are from Blunt.

Pictured is their collaboration with LA based artist Michael C Hsiung

12. A personalised mirror

How about a cute compact mirror like these ones from Mishmash Designs on Etsy?
You can add their name, and perhaps a little quote to show them how much you care.
Perfect to add to their touchup bags

13. A hair piece

These crystal hairpieces handmade by Crystal Eclipse Crowns would look gorgeous for your wedding day, and for any other occasion your bridesmaid needs something a bit special to finish off her outfit.

14. A clutch with her name on it

I know I’m always looking for a cute way to store my makeup in my handbag and this personalised clutch has my name written all over it.

At least, it will when it gets delivered.

15. Wedding day touch up kit

While we are talking about makeup bags your bridesmaids will love a wedding day touchup kit.
Include her wedding day lipstick color, a translucent powder to take away the shine and a gorgeous blush to keep her looking fresh.
Find her perfect colours and she can use it all season

16. Handmade candles

I’m in love with these handmade candles from Melbourne’s Pearlessence Candles.

Give them as gifts or decorate your reception tables – everyone will love them.

Speak to Pealessence Candles about customising your order

17. A wine carry bag

I don’t know about your besties, but I know mine would LOVE one of these wine bags from Colour and Spice (filled with their favourite vino of course)

18. Bath Salts

These bath salts from Clean Tea are made with Himalayan rock salt, herbal tea and essential oils, and look like the perfect addition to a relaxing bath.

Available in 6 gorgeous variations.

19. Silk Sleep Mask

Silk sleep mask

Give the gift of a good night’s sleep with a silk mask from The Goodnight Co.

Not only will this help her sleep in total darkness it helps to protect the delicate skin around her eyes.


20. Foldable flats

She won’t have any excuse to keep off the dancefloor with these cute, foldable shoes from I Do Details

Available in 3 sizes, her feet will thank you for it.

21. A pamper day (or night)

What’s a blog without a little self promotion?  To be fair we are amazing at making you and your besties look and feel fantastic.

Speak to The Melbourne Bride about an at home spa style pamper party. Get your spraytan,  manicures or pedicures at home so you can relax with your girls.

22. Some special time together (with great food)

Sometimes you just want to hang out, drink wine, talk and eat, especially taking some time out from the wedding planning craziness.

These grazing boxes from Platter Perfection look, well, perfect!  And they deliver (to most of Melbourne. Check your area online)

23. An initial bracelet

These initial bracelets are super cute and thoughtful and your bridesmaids can keep wearing them long after your wedding.

Order from Mignon and Mignon

24. An embroidered handkerchief

My bridesmaid cried. A lot.

Something like this cute handkerchief from Boldfaced would have come in very handy on the day.

I suggest ordering one for your mum, and mother in law as well.  Maybe your aunties too.

25. A gift box

Not just any gift box.  The Bridesmaid box from The Bridal Box Co.

Filled with everything from Moet to nougat in an engraved box she’ll treasure forever.
