4. Monogrammed Tote Bags
Monogrammed tote bags are a great way to thank your bridesmaids for being part of your special day. You can have the tote bags customized with your bridesmaid’s initials, names, or their titles.

These tote bags are perfect for carrying all of your bridesmaids’ essential items, such as makeup and hair accessories for wedding day and for a cute carrying bag while out and about. These adorably cute chiffon ribbon tote bags below can both be personalized with custom monogramming AND the ribbon color.

Customized wine glasses or champagne flutes are a great way to cheers to your bridesmaids and show them how much you love them! Plus, they make for picture perfect toasting pictures on wedding day! What is cuter than a bunch of besties cheers-ing with mimosas in their wedding day robes?! Not much.
6. Bridesmaid Gift Box
A nice quality, sturdy proposal box is a perfect way to present your gifts in a way that can be useful to them later. Instead of buying a paper style box, you can order a thick walled-magnetic closure proposal box that can be used as a jewelry or makeup organizer later! These boxes below can be customized with names, titles, initials, or even "will you be my bridesmaid" or other special messages, but you can also customize the ribbon color to match your wedding colors!
7. Bath Bombs and Self Care Items
Bath bombs, lotions, body butters, etc are a great way to thank your bridesmaids for being part of your special day. Let's face it, weddings are stressful for the couple, but they are absolutely stressful for friends and family that is involved too. That's why bath bombs are a great way to show your people how much you care and appreciate them by gifting them something truly for themselves. There is not a better gift than something you can use to pamper yourself!
