Being named a Bridesmaid is a true honor, and while bestowing that type of trust and love in your girlfriend means a lot in itself—actually being a Bridesmaid is a lot of work! As a Bridesmaid you are responsible for making the Bride a happy woman—helping her pick out her dress and prepare for the big day. In many cases, the Bridesmaids are even responsible for paying for their own dress, which is not typically a cheap piece of fabric! So while no Bridesmaid EXPECTS a bridesmaid gift, it’s polite and in good taste to treat your group of Bridesmaids to an extra special present, in thanks for all of their hard work.
If you have a huge wedding party, it might be hard to afford anything too extravagant for each and every one of your special Bridesmaids. In this case, try a cheap bridesmaid gift idea that does not come off as “cheap” because of how unique, personalized, or special it is.
While all Bridesmaids are important to the Bride, the Maid of Honor is picked for a reason: because she is the closest to the Bride. This close relationship can be acknowledged by purchasing your Maid of Honor something that is different or even more expensive than the gift(s) given to the Bridesmaids.
Still, knowing exactly what is appropriate and what is not can get tricky—here is an assortment of Bridesmaid Gift Ideas suited for almost every budget.
