As a bride, planning a wedding is filled with stressful decisions. Where to have it? When to have it? Flowers, music, food...and of course who you’ll choose as your bridesmaids. They are a special, handpicked group with big responsibilities leading up to your big day, and gifting your bridesmaid a token of your appreciation is a longstanding tradition. But, deciding what to give them shouldn’t become yet another stressful wedding decision. Here’s how to choose a meaningful gift that your bridesmaids will cherish for years to come.

The style is fully adjustable and flexible enough to bend and fit most wrist sizes.

Jewelry is one of the best bridesmaid gift picks because they can wear it during the ceremony—and every day after that. It’ll bond your bridesmaids as they’ll have a shared piece to wear together with pride during the ceremony. Plus, it’s something sweet they can keep and wear in their everyday life too, making them think of that special day and the bride.

They’re made of 304 stainless steel, which can stay hot for three hours and keep cold for nine.

When choosing a bridesmaid gift, a good question to ask yourself is, “Would I want this for myself?” This is especially true if your bridesmaids have different styles, making clothing or jewelry hard to appease everyone. In that case, turn to useful items that everyone appreciates and will use in their daily lives. From wine tumblers to coffee mugs, gift an everyday item with personal touches such as your wedding colors or engraving with their names.

Available in 15 colors and in sizes ranging from 4 to 18.

The most fun part of having bridesmaids? Spending your wedding day primping and pampering! Give bridesmaids the full “spa experience” with matching robes to wear while getting their hair, makeup, and nails done. They’ll feel comfy and relaxed so they can keep you, the bride, calm and in the moment. PS: Taking a pic of everyone in matching robes is a priceless memento!
