Of course, it is so special to be included in someone's wedding party. However, it feels less than practical to have a whole drawer full of "bride tribe" tank tops that you've re-purposed as gym apparel or a cabinet of mismatched "bridesmaid" cups that are hand wash-only. It would be great to give/get a bridesmaid gift that people will love to use. 

Planning a wedding is no easy task, especially amid a pandemic. However, there's no need to fret about searching for bridesmaid gifts on top of everything else on your to-do list. We did that for you! From a compact mirror that also charges your phone to a bracelet that doubles as a flask, we've found some great gifts your girls will love. 

Check out our favorite finds from Amazon, Revolve, Birdy Grey, Anthropologie, Etsy, and Lulus below. You might even end up buying some of these for yourself.

9 Stores With Bridesmaid Dresses You'll Actually Want to Wear Again

Design Your Own Personalized Wedding Chapstick

Who doesn't need an extra chapstick? They always tend to disappear and you can never have too many. Why not personalize one with your bridesmaids' names and favorite color? These would also be appreciated by the mother of the groom/bride and the flower girls because, well, don't we all need chapstick?

Crafting Hands NY 'Will You be My Bridesmaid' Makeup Bag

Of course, it always feels special to get something personalized with your name on it, but what are you supposed to do with a giftbox/cardboard box? Do you just keep it for storage? You most likely can't re-use it, unless you have a friend with the same name.

Instead, just use a cosmetic pouch to put together your bridesmaid invites. After that, they're useful to store personal items like makeup or pens. Your friends can even use them when they pack for your bachelorette party. This one even has the option to write "will you be my bridesmaid on the inside?"

Organic Towel Turkish Personalized Luxury Spa Wrap, Bridesmaid Gift Terry/Velour

Sometimes it's hard to get a towel to stay still while you're getting ready. Instead of a conventional towel, just get a spa wrap that stays put with an adjustable closure. This is so useful, but you can make it personal for your friends with an option to add their name, nickname, or initials in a thread font and color that fits their personality. 

Kazaplenka Portable Make up Vanity Mirror With Rechargeable 3000 Mah Power Bank

This compact has two different built-in mirrors and a power bank to charge your phone. It comes with a USB cord, but you can also use your own to charge Apple, Samsung, and Android devices. This is the perfect gift for a woman on the go. There's even a bright LED light around the mirror for perfectly-lit makeup application. 

Sprinkled With Pink Monogram Pool Bag

It's always thoughtful to give a personalized gift with someone's name or initials. These translucent bags are perfect to store sunscreen, makeup, and other essentials whether you're poolside, packing for a trip, or if you just want your favorite products in one place. These PVC bags are environmentally friendly and easy to clean. After you decide on the text and color selections, it's ready to ship in just 2-3 business days, which is very impressive for a custom piece.

Maxam Bracelet Flask

No matter where you are, you'll always be ready to take a sip (or a shot) with this bracelet that's actually a flask. You'll be the life the life of the party, for sure. The flask bracelet is available in gold and silver.

Fairly Odd Novelties Red Lipstick Stainless Steel Flask

If you prefer a flask that you'd rather keep in your purse, but you still want a fun one, buy this red lipstick flask. It even comes with a little funnel for a spill-free pour every time... hopefully. 

Becko Jewelry Organizer Roll Travel Bag

This jewelry roll is a great way to organize your jewelry when you travel. It has elastic bands to prevent necklaces from intertwining with each other and organizational components specifically designed to store earrings, rings, watches, and bracelets. There's also a pouch to fit sunglasses or any other must-have accessories. It's available in grey, navy, pink, light blue, and purple.

Picnic at Ascot Personalized Monogrammed Engraved Hardwood Cutting Board for Cheese & Charcuterie

If you have a friend who loves to host, she'll adore the Picnic at Ascot charcuterie board set. It's already monogrammed, so there's no need to place a special order. The set includes a ceramic dish, stainless steel cheese markers, knives, and a built-in magnetic strip to hold the knives in place.

Crazy Lady Women's Fuzzy Fluffy Furry Fur Slippers

Thus plush faux fur slippers come in ten different colors. The house slippers also have a strong, rubber sole, which means you won't need to put on a pair of shoes if you pop outside to grab the mail or want to enjoy a cup of coffee in the backyard.

These slippers have 16,400+ 5-star Amazon reviews.

Sprinkled With Pink Floppy Beach Hat, Black Ribbon

Of course, this hat would be adorable for the group pictures at a bachelorette party, but since it doesn't say "bride tribe," "bridesmaid," or anything else wedding-related, people can wear this on subsequent trips too. Or you can customize it with the phrase of your choice. There's even a coordinating hat with white accents, which would be perfect for a bride-to-be.

Petite Boutique 16K Gold Your Name Bar Bracelet

There's just something so precious about a personalized gift. Engrave a name, initials, coordinates, or a special message on a 16K gold, silver, or rose gold plated bar bracelet. This design is so simple that it can work with every outfit.

Pengxiaomei 12-Piece Satin Elastic Hair Bands

$6 for 12 scrunchies is such a great deal. The material is so soft that it doesn't pull at your hair or leave creases. You can give each bridesmaid her favorite color scrunchie or just give her the whole pack so she has options to choose from every day.

Turquaz Linen Women's Pure Color Satin Short Kimono Robe

The getting-ready photoshoot with bridesmaids in matching robes has become a staple. If the robes are for your photos, you might as well buy them for your friends.
