You are planning your perfect wedding, and have decided on the friends and family that will be standing with you and your groom, while you say, “I do”. Perhaps they are traveling from other parts of the country, and you’ve likely asked them to purchase or rent attire that fits with the theme for the day. It is tradition to show your appreciation to your wedding party for helping make your day special, by buying each individual a gift. Finding the right gift can be challenging, given the different tastes of each member of your wedding party. Here are some suggestions to help you find the perfect wedding party gifts.


 For Her

It’s likely that your bridesmaids are your closest friends and relatives, so getting them something special and unique is really important.

Jewelry – There are tons of unique options for keepsake jewelry on the market. Consider personalized stacking rings, or a monogrammed necklace. If you are looking for something more organic or edgy, try a leather cuff with a funky clasp. If you want a one-of-a-kind jewelry option, look for a local artist or find an independent designer on Etsy.

Stationary – A beautiful package of stationary is always nice to have on hand for thank you notes or well wishes. If you have a bridesmaid that loves to write or likes to live by a schedule, then a unique journal or day planner may be another great option.

For the Bath – There are few ladies that don’t enjoy a nice soap or lotion. Consider purchasing handmade soap, bath salts, or lotion from a local business. Locally made bath products often come in elegant packaging that makes them look special and unique. This is a great way to personalize your gift for each lady as well. Find a special scent for each member of your wedding party for a personalized touch.

Spa or Beauty Gift Certificates – If your wedding party is local, a great way to say thanks is to give them the opportunity to pamper themselves. You have had facials and massages to get ready for your big day, so share the fun, and give the gift of beauty and relaxation to your wedding party.


For Him

Guys can be especially difficult to shop for, and it can be a task to find unique gifts for the men in your wedding party.

Whiskey Rocks – This is a fun trend in barware. Whiskey rocks are small chunks of soap stone that can be frozen and put in your favorite cocktail instead of ice. For the guys in your wedding that love a good scotch or whiskey, this is the perfect gift.

Shaving Kit – All guys will shave their face, at least occasionally. A really nice shaving kit will make this daily routine seem a little more special.

Funky Sunglasses – If you are having an outdoor or destination wedding, a funky pair of sunglasses is a great way to help your groomsmen accessorize while also giving a unique thank you gift.

Fun Socks – Dress socks don’t have to be boring. Add a touch of fun to your groomsmen’s wedding attire by giving a fun pair of socks (or two) as a thank you.

Cufflinks – Like jewelry for women, cufflinks are a great gift option for the men in your wedding party. Find a local artist that can create a unique statement for your wedding, or find fun and whimsical links that will help your groomsmen remember the day. Each pair can be different to reflect the style of your groomsmen, and will show that you thought about each individual and their tastes and personal style.
