Your bridesmaids have been with you through everything, including the good times and the bad. Naturally, once your partner popped the question, you turned back to your girls to ask them a question of your own: "Will you be my bridesmaid?" They've helped you choose the venue, browse racks of wedding dresses, and pack invitations. They threw a bridal shower in your honor and surprised you with a fun-filled bachelorette weekend. Now, with your wedding fast approaching, it's time to thank them for all they've done and show each important woman just how much she means to you. The best way to do that is with thoughtful bridesmaids' gift.
Whether you're having just one maid of honor or a bridal party comprised of 15 of your best friends, we understand that gifts—and weddings in general—can get pricy. That's why we rounded up some of our all-time favorite gifts under $50. From twists on a classic bridesmaid gift to a few picks that are a little more unexpected, we found presents that are as stylish as each of your attendants, but that won't break the bank. For jewelry enthusiasts, we located the coolest new take on a personalized necklace, a dainty, stackable ring she'll love forever, and a pair of earrings that she can wear on the wedding day and date night. Prefer to pamper your group? Bath sets, self-care kits, and indulgent candy boxes are all here, too.
Thank your bridesmaids with stylish presents that won't leave your big-day budget in the red. Find 16 of our favorites here.
