Bridesmaids gift ideas under $500

Bridesmaids play a crucial role in a wedding, and you may be looking for some thoughtful bridesmaids gift ideas. However, choosing the perfect bridesmaid gift can be a daunting task. There are countless options available, and you’ll want to pick something that your bridesmaids will cherish for years to come.

Sure there are plenty of cute options out there. But let’s be honest, if you’re like me, most of the bridesmaid gifts you’ve collected over the years have either ended up in the back of the kitchen cabinet (I see you back there personalized glitter champagne glasses!), or donated for others to adore at Goodwill (goodbye ‘Bride Tribe’ shirts).

The allure of these personalized and branded items from platforms like Etsy sure are tempting. That’s why we researched and rounded up our favorite special yet practical bridesmaids gift ideas under $500 that will leave your bridesmaids feeling appreciated long after the wedding festivities have ended.

If the backdrop for your big day is the gentle sound of waves, why not consider giving your bridesmaids a beach tote filled with all the essentials they need to enjoy throughout the wedding weekend? 

The Mar Y Sol Beach Tote, known for its chic design and durability, is perfect for the job. Create an entire beach experience for your girls by filling the totes with items like a handy wine tumbler, a hat clip to keep their hats secure on the flight, and trusted sunscreen to protect their skin. And of course, a soft beach towel will add a touch of luxury to their beach lounging post wedding.

A destination wedding in Europe is a dream come true for so many couples. If you’ve been lucky enough to lock down a setting that’s surrounded by beautiful accents, dreamlike buildings, and never ending picturesque views, then consider sending your bridesmaid gifts to the hotel of choice ahead of time to surprise your bridesmaids upon their arrival. 

Fill a Cuyana Travel Case with useful travel supplies that will ensure their comfort and convenience throughout the trip. The Travel Set from Aesop, a cult-favorite skincare brand, is perfect for keeping their skin fresh and rejuvenated. The Cadence Travel Containers will help them carry their favorite toiletries while steering clear of any pesky airline regulations. And to combat jet lag and provide a little pampering, include a Jet Lag Mask and a Slip Sleep Mask. These thoughtful gifts are bound to get the wedding weekend started.

If you’re looking to indulge your bridesmaid a bit more with a single, luxe item, jewelry is always a timeless choice. My go-to is Ring Concierge, and they have an “Under $500” section on their site that’s filled with beautiful pieces of jewelry that come to you wrapped and ready to gift. I gifted the Diamond Bezel-Set Station Petite Bracelet to a friend of mine and it was a hit! Whether it’s a delicate necklace or a pair of elegant earrings, consider selecting pieces that reflect their individual styles and personalities. 

Another option is to gift the ultimate pair of designer heels. You could go with classic nude for your girls to wear on the day of, or timeless and chic black for them to wear for future special events to come. Beautiful heels are a practical option that your bridesmaids are sure to appreciate.

And besides, what girl doesn’t want to feel like Carrie Bradshaw for a day, right?
