From the bachelorette party and bridal shower to the dress fittings and heart-to-heart talks in between, they have been your support system during an exciting, yet occasionally stressful time. When it comes to a bridesmaid gift, thank them with something that expresses how much you appreciate all their hard work and commitment. Finding a special gift can be difficult though, and the last thing you want to do is resort to a basic, uninspired present. For the bride in need of some ideas, we put together a guide of unique and thoughtful gifts that your bridesmaids are sure to love.


Urban Decay Naked Palette and Eye Shadow Brush

Referring to themselves as the Glam Squad, your bridesmaids have been working overtime to make sure you look absolutely gorgeous walking down the aisle. Your get-togethers always lead to discussions about the latest makeup trends and products. The Urban Decay Naked Palette makes a perfect gift for the beauty-obsessed bridal party. With 12 universally flattering bronze-hued shadows, it has everything needed to create a natural look for day or dramatic eye for evening. Good tools are key to flawless makeup, and we love the versatility of Bobbi Brown’s Angle Eye Shadow Brush.




Slip Silk Pillowcase and Eye Mask

Is there anything better than the gift of a good night’s sleep? Your best friends will have only the sweetest dreams with Slip’s pillowcase, which is made of 100% high-grade mulberry silk. They will not only wake up feeling better, but also looking better thanks to the ultra luxurious fabric that protects and hydrates skin while safeguarding hair from split ends and frizz. Guarantee ultimate beauty sleep and pair with the matching silk eye mask.




Cire Trudon Trianon Classic Candle

You are probably thinking, “A candle, seriously?” But, we have a good case for giving a candle as a bridesmaid gift. Cire Trudon’s legacy goes back to 1643 when the Paris-based Maison made candles for the royal court of Louis XIV at Versailles. A tribute to Marie Antoinette, the Trianon Classic Candle exudes a transcendent aroma that blends summer florals with a “warm scent of the musk of torches.”

Containing more than 400 images culled from Lindbergh’s 40-year career, this book showcases his unique vision of fashion photography, which celebrates women, capturing both their physical beauty and inner spirit.
