Today's couples are looking for wedding party gifts that are deeply meaningful. These gifts speak to shared experiences with their besties or are personalized for that special person in their life. Beyond that, couples want gifts that are practical and useful for their wedding party. Gifts that support charities or are eco-friendly are an added bonus. Here are some of the best options we've found for bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts.

The best bridesmaid gift ideas

1. Engraved Organic Pearl Platter

Set the tone for a gorgeous wedding with this stunning hand-crafted platter from Beatriz Ball. The bride can engrave a phrase, initials, or date on the platter to create a one-of-a-kind gift for her bridesmaids.

This is a practical gift that a bridesmaid can always use—big enough to serve a full tray of charcuterie, use as a decorative piece, and more. It's also made of easy-care recycled aluminum that's eco-friendly and able to go from freezer to oven to table effortlessly.

2. Personalized Aprons In Cotton Canvas

Brighten up baking with these custom aprons from Sweet Hooligans Design on Etsy.

For a quarterly subscription fee, VINEBOX sends bridesmaids nine of the best wines of the season so they can discover new varieties, regions, and styles. They come in adorable tasting sizes, with options to buy full-sized bottles of the wines they love.

4. VENTO Wine Coaster

For the most practical and useful gift (especially as wedding planning gets underway), a wine coaster is one of the best bridesmaid gifts. They can pair it with a VINEBOX subscription or their favorite bottle of wine for a gift everyone will love.

Handmade and artfully designed by the Beatriz Ball team, this is a meaningful gift bridesmaids can use for years to come. Like many of our pieces, it's made from eco-friendly aluminum, too.
