5 Bridesmaid Gift Ideas They'll Love

Posted by Victoria Dolloff on


Here are five bridesmaid's gift ideas that are the perfect 'thank you' for your wedding party. Whether you are looking for something fun, something practical, or simply something you're sure they'll use again, we have you covered!


1. Carry-All Tote

A popular gift for bridesmaids are carry-all totes. They make the perfect present and are super useful on the day of the wedding. Stuff some sweet treats inside like chocolate, wine, lip gloss, flip flops (aka dancing shoes!), and a thank you note. Personalize the bags with a monogram of their name for a tote they can always treasure! 



2. Makeup Bags

Makeup bags are the perfect gift for your bridesmaids on your wedding day. Help them stay organized while they get ready! Great to pair with perfume, makeup, nail polish or any other cute accessories. Personalize them with your bridesmaids' monograms for an extra special gift!



3. Duffel

Whether it's traveling in for your bridal shower, flying off to your bachelorette, or checking in for the big day-- Bridesmaids are on-the-go for their brides! What better gift to thank them with than a stylish, functional duffel. With all of our great patterns and two sizes, a Quilted Koala duffel makes the perfect bridesmaid gift!




4. Jewelry + Jewelry Roll

Another popular gift for bridesmaids is personalized jewelry that they can wear on the wedding day. Pairing it with a jewelry roll is the perfect combination. Both gifts they can use on the day-of and enjoy after as well.



5. Heels in a custom box

With the bridesmaids dresses all picked out, now your girls need the perfect shoes for their wedding day outfit. A thoughtful gift is to treat your bridesmaids to some fabulous heels that will keep your wedding party coordinated and also make your bridesmaids happy! Who doesn't love shoes?!  Popping them in a gorgeous fabric box will make the gift all the more special. With a windowpane, you can personalize each box with your bridesmaid's names and they can treasure the boxes as a keepsake after.

Three Secrets to Picking the Perfect Bridesmaid Gifts

Quilted Koala Bridesmaid Gifts

The best news for bridesmaids these days is that the dresses have gotten so much better!  While the movie 27 Dresses was an exaggeration, we've all had some pretty hideous dresses with the promise  "You can so wear that again!"   

The same is true of Bridesmaids gifts! No one really wants a travel mirror with a picture of you and your beloved (I got one of those). The idea is to pick something that says "thank you" for being there with me on this journey.  

Here are the Secrets to Picking the Perfect Bridesmaids Gifts:

1. Pick Something Useful and a Treat.  There's something so fun about getting a gift you can use right away. Our Quilted Koala MakeUp bags are just right and come in so many colors - you can go with the color of your wedding party.  The ones pictured above are from our Blue Joyful Collection

If your palette is pink, we have the perfect combination!  These vibrant Quilted Koala MakeUp Bags are from our Pink Joyful Collection and is just right for your bridemaids to use on the big day as well as a wonderful way to remember your wedding.

2. Make It Personal. Fill the quilted make up bags with candy you both love, a favorite nail polish of the season - you get the idea!



 3. Jewelry is Always A Great Bridesmaids Gift. We love the idea of giving a piece of jewelry as a memory of your time together planning and enjoying your wedding. Our suggestion is pair it with one of our beautiful Quilted Koala Jewelry Rolls - they're just right for keeping your jewels separated and safe when you travel.
