Ethical Bridesmaid Gifts

Editor's Picks, Wedding v August 8, 2015


Your wedding. The one time in your life when you feel absolute joy and utmost stress all at the same time. While we live in a society that encourages the “perfect” dress, location, photos, theme, it doesn’t help that this pressure of a “perfect” day can come with excess and waste. Luckily, you’ll have your bridesmaids to keep you sane through any erupting “bridezilla” moments.

Having the bride’s back is one of the unspoken contracts when accepting the role of bridesmaid, however, it’s always good to show your appreciation for the ladies who have to deal with your day-of meltdowns. With these thoughtful bridesmaid gifts, you can mix and match the different products to create a sincere and personal “thank you”.


Getting your make up done by a professional can be a bit pricey at times. Some bridesmaids would rather do their own in which case here are some little things to give your ladies for prep on your day.

Make-up, comfortable shoes to change into, bobby pins, and a whole package of tissues are what your bridesmaids are going to need to carry throughout the day. To help them lug around all of these things why not get them a cute bag? Either a handy clutch or (to make it more personal) a monogramed tote, these bags are great from day to night. Stuff them with goodies for an extra surprise.
