10 Amazing Bridesmaids’ Gifts For Your Besties

Posted on: January 10, 2018

“Will you be my Bridesmaid?”

The second most important question surrounding a Wedding. It’s an exciting time in your life and these are some of the most important people in your life, agreeing to stand by your side on one of the biggest days of your life.  So, how do you say thank you to someone who has just agreed to dedicate their weekends, (and maybe a few weeknights) for a year or so, to help you plan your big day? Well, a with a big hug and maybe a token of your appreciation.

It’s not about the gift per se,  but the gift is a nice touch. It’s just a little something to say ‘Thanks for calming my nerves when I burst into tears at my dress fitting‘ or ‘I appreciate that you listened to all of rants about my in-laws’ crazy Wedding Ideas‘ or some other uncharacteristic episode that happened because, yea, Wedding planning is a big undertaking.

Here is our list of 10 gifts that your bridesmaids will like so much, they would’ve totally bought them for themselves!

 1. Some ‘Adult’ Candy

There are many options to choose from in this line of delicious treats, but the Champagne bears are a Wedding appropriate classic, and a personal fave of ours.

Check it all out all online here – Candy Cubes starting at $10.95.

You can also check it out in person at the Sugarfina Boutique at Metropolis at Metrotown


2. An Agenda

Give them the gift of looking like they have their life together. Write in the important wedding dates like showers, rehearsal dinners, etc

We love the Ban.do brand 17-month spiral agendas for many reasons. They come with stickers, blank pages for notes, colour-coded organizational tabs and cute quotes and sayings to get you through any work or school day. Plus, they’re trendy and have a healthy dose of sass that agendas of the past never did.

Large Planners start at $32.00 available online here or here.


3. A Swell Water Bottle

Keep your squad hydrated and on their game for the wedding day or work outs leading up to the big day!

These ultra stylish, sleek, water bottles keep your drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 with colourful, non-leaching and non-toxic material.

25 oz Bottles start at $45.00 and you can find them here or here.

*You can also search online for cute monogramed Swell Style bottles like this one starting at $30.


4. A Heated Shawl

Picture that one friend who is always cold – wouldn’t she love this?? You could also theme your gift with a Winter Wedding  – The Therapedic Warm Me Up Electric Heated Wrap keeps you toasty with therapeutic warmth or can be used as a traditional soft and cozy throw. Find it here. On sale as of this posting for $49.99


5. A Reusable Tote/Shopper Bag

The BETHCON shopper from Ted Baker is the perfect on the go bag that matches any casual outfit. Great for the beach, shopping, or even carrying baby bottles and diapers, this stylish and convenient tote is practical, classic, and timeless. Find it online here starting at $67 for large totes.

6. A Diffuser

To calm them down after all the wedding planning craziness. This beautiful essential oil diffuser can be used as a stunning piece of décor as well as the health and wellness benefits… on second thought, maybe grab one for yourself too. 😉 Available here starting at $79.99.


7. An Activity/Fitness Tracker

There’s nothing like a stylish activity tracker from Kate Spade to help motivate you along your fitness journey, while keeping you looking fashionable too. This activity tracker has a built-in Bluetooth and syncs with your cellphone. Notifications are sent to your mobile device like the amount of steps you have taken or quality of sleep. Buy one here on sale as of this posting for $65.


8. A Pair of Foldable Flats

Sure, those sky high heels look great but cut to 8pm after a drink or two, you know everyone is kicking those bad boys off. These life saver shoes are foldable, light, and compact enough to stuff them into a clutch for any event!

There’s a huge range of prices and selection on Amazon as low as $5. There are also $200+ versions like Tieks, Tory Burch and, and Kate Spade for the more fashionable bride/bridesmaid. We love these Yosi Samra flats that go for $89/pair.


9. Booze

When you have a bridesmaid that has everything, there is always the gift of wine! Get her a set of white, red, and rose, or a few of her favourite bottles. At the Executive Liquor Store we offer discounts by the case, so if you have a lot of presents to cover, this is a great option. Check out our facebook page or call 604-937-4597.


10. Post Wedding Night Stay at a Hotel

Book your bridesmaids a room to share or if you are feeling generous, a room of their own to relax, without the dilemma of how to get home safely after the big day is over. Check out the Plaza room rates here or any of our hotels in the Executive Family here.
