The best bridesmaids gifts
According to your wedding style

The Internet offers no shortage of gift ideas when it comes to saying thank you to your bridesmaids - we’ve seen everything from customised hip flasks, mugs, keyrings and matching jewellery, but let’s be honest, who’s really going to use those? If you’re looking for a way to show your appreciation to your best gal pals while being practical and truly pampering them, look no further than a beauty-related gift that they’ll remember for years to come.
If your wedding style is extravagant
One sure-fire way to win over your bridesmaids is with a luxurious pamper session for the whole crew, like The Darling Spa Ultimate Bridal Indulgence. This package includes a limousine pick up and drop off, personal hostess for the day, glass of bubbles on arrival, a 30-minute body scrub in a Moroccan Hammam chamber, a 90-minute treatment (pick from a facial and manicure or massage and manicure), 60 minutes use of the Jacuzzi, steam room and The Darling pool, high tea and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot for your party, a La Prairie gift for the bride, and you can even add on oysters and champagne by The Darling pool if you book over summer. The whole package takes about four hours altogether, and is priced at $650 per person (valued at $780 per person).
If your wedding style is modern
It’s one thing to gift your bridesmaids with a candle that smells nice, but it’s another to present them with something that’ll seriously impress. Housed in an aluminium votive, the Tom Dixon Alloy Medium Scented Candle is industrial-looking, scented with warm woods and is a must-have for the candle obsessed.
If your wedding style is traditional
Nothing says ‘classic’ like something presented in Tiffany & Co.’s signature blue box, which makes their newest Eau de Parfum a definite essential for your bridesmaids. Inside, the juice smells of vert de mandarine, iris flower and patchouli - it’s absolutely divine, and one that our team is obsessed with.
If your wedding style is exotic
With all the drinking and partying that’ll most likely occur at your wedding, the perfect present for your bridesmaids is something that’ll help them get a good night’s sleep. An accessory like Luna Atelier Seraphina Eyeshade in Serengeti is the perfect reminder of your out-of-the-ordinary wedding venue, and this eyeshade feels super soft and comfortable on eyes.
If your wedding style is beachy
If you’ve picked a seaside location for your big day, you’re going to want to gift your bridesmaids something that’ll keep their faces looking their best. Une Nuit A Bali The Massage Powder may sound like something you apply all over your body, but it’s actually a mattifying powder that feels light and silky to wear, and leaves the complexion shine-free in an instant. Plus, we can’t get enough of its delicate ylang-ylang and jasmine scent.
If your wedding style is vintage
This present is perfect for the beauty-obsessed. The Journey Beauty Case is a deluxe-sized beauty case that can hold bottles, compacts, tools and brushes in one place, and is ideal to travel with or even use as stylish storage in your home.
