Matching robes that they’ll never wear again? Pass! Custom champagne glass with YOUR wedding date on it? No, thank you!
This was one of the more difficult decisions for me to make when I was planning my wedding because I truly wanted to get my girls something they would actually want, use and LOVE. No bride wants to waste her money on this and it seemed like everywhere I turned on Pinterest it was the SAME GIFT EXAMPLES. Robes, cups, hangers — BORING. So I did the hard work for you and rounded up TEN unique bridesmaid gift ideas with some of them offering a few different options to fit any bride’s wedding budget!
This first one is actually a gift that I gave MY bridesmaids! They all had planned on wearing their own jewelry but a simple faux-pearl bracelet can be paired with any other delicate bracelet so it didn’t matter what they had planned haha! It is also one of my favorite pieces to wear every day. It can really dress up a wrist and it’s a timeless piece they can all wear on your wedding day, as well! Shop for this Pearl Bracelet
If your maids’ tastes are a little on the blingy side of things then this is a great option as a unique bridesmaid gift! It’s simple, delicate and classy but has that sparkle to dress up their bridesmaids’ dress! It comes in yellow, white and rose gold to match any wedding style. It also has a universal fit so you won’t have to worry about how it fits!
SHOP this Rhinestone Bracelet
If jewelry isn’t unique enough for you, get them some of YOUR favorite items that you haven’t shared with your besties yet! Here are a few of my favorite woman must-haves!
Ok — so back in like high school or something, I thought “I have this perfume that I love and I want to be able to carry it around with me but it doesn’t come in a rollerball size! I wish they would make a refillable bottle I could take everywhere with me!”
Then I found this refillable perfume bottle! It’s been a game-changer! This might be the most unique bridesmaid gift that I’ve listed today! Honestly, every woman needs one of these because even if your favorite perfume CAN be purchased in a rollerball, why would you want to spend more when you have a HUGE BOTTLE OF IT AT HOME? These come in a pack of three so if the numbers don’t work out evenly to just your maids then you get one, too!
SHOP this Refillable Travel Perfume Atomizer
I received a small clutch as a bridesmaid gift from my sister-in-law and it was seriously “CLUTCH!” (…get it?) But truthfully, I had no idea how badly I actually needed a small to medium-sized clutch! I used the CRAP out of this thing! She actually scored a great deal on some Coach ones for us BUT this one here is a great option that is easier on the wallet!
Shop this Zipper Clutch
As I was searching for good clutches, I found this super chic foldover clutch and had to share it because I LOVE how stylish and modern the foldover is! Plus this one will most likely hold more of your bestie’s things. A friend of mine gave these as a gift to her girls and I was honestly jealous I didn’t have one before they were sold out! I would snag this unique bridesmaid gift up before they’re gone! Shop this Foldover Clutch.
This one is a seriously unique bridesmaid gift for your girls who love their jams! This water bottle not only connects to a Bluetooth speaker but it also lights up when you haven’t drunk enough water! (It honestly might be a good gift for yourself to remind you to drink up! Water intake is CRUCIAL for the last couple of weeks before your wedding! Snag these for your girls who need their music like they need their water!
SHOP this Bluetooth Water Bottle.
Are you over the matching robe or kimono look? (who actually wears a kimono anyway? lol) Next, I’ve got a few clothing options that will make a great unique bridesmaid gift that your girls will totally love plus it will make for an adorable photo op!
If you’ve got a spring, summer or even early fall wedding, these cute and comfy shorts will be a crowd pleaser! They come in a ton of colors but these are my fave for sure! Have all your girls throw on a white tank top, tuck it in and BAM you and your girls look CHIC while also comfy!
SHOP this pair of Bowtie Front Shorts.
Here is another pair of adorable comfortable shorts that will make a unique bridesmaids gift that your girls will actually wear again! I’m obsessed with the dusty blue for myself, but truthfully, I love the idea of pairing the RUST color with a denim button-up! Throw it on over these slouchy shorts and call it a comfy chic morning outfit! SHOP these Cute & Comfy Shorts
These last two are gifts that I got for my bridesmaids! The first one was a set of pair of short sleeve pajamas! This gift was also a gift for my husband because he thought they were kind of sexy! (kind of that cute house-wife kind of look!) I got the sets for my girls on Etsy but these are a cute dupe!
SHOP the Short Sleeve Pajamas set.
This was the one unique bridesmaid’s gift that I was SO EXCITED TO GIVE MY GIRLS! I actually got one for myself, too! This RTIC Cooler is the perfect size for your girls to use as a lunch tote for work or throw a 6-pack of bee–I mean, soda in and hit the lake! I got them each a color I knew they would love and threw their jewelry and PJs inside! I highly recommend this gift for your girls!
SHOP the RTIC Cooler
Remember “it’s the thought that counts” but let’s be honest, don’t you want to give gifts that rock? And not be a waste of money? Use these unique bridesmaids’ gifts for your girls and they will NOT be disappointed!
