To all brides-to-be: You have enough on your plate. To lighten your load, we’ve compiled this handy list of great—and completely functional—gifts your bridesmaids will love on the big day and beyond.
The Knot Shop Large Cotton Waffle Cosmetic Bag
Instead of using a gift bag, present goodies in personalized and practical (they’re washable and lined for easy cleaning) makeup bags. In nine colors.
To buy: $17, davidsbridal.com.
Molton Brown Replenishing Hand Cream
This nourishing, but non-greasy hand cream serves as the perfect pampering treat for your girls. The enriching formula is available in six scents, but try the Ylang Ylang variety—it helps promote peace.
To buy: $15, moltonbrown.com.
Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit For Bridesmaids
Housed in a petite pouch and available in five prints, you’ll find 21 essentials to solve just about any snafu (dental floss, double-sided tape, a deodorant towelette, a sewing kit, and more). Post-wedding, your maids can stash it in their bags to fix everyday beauty disasters.
To buy: $18, birchbox.com.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15
Take the guesswork out of getting ready by gifting this moisturizing, citrus-scented lip tint. Packed with smoothing oils, fatty acids, grapeseed polyphenols, and vitamins A, C, and E, dry lips don’t stand a chance (even after a long ceremony full of laughter and tears). Lips are left supple, silky smooth, and with a subtle, rosy hue that flatters just about every skintone.
To buy: $24, sephora.com.
Essie Meet Me At The Altar
Give your bridesmaids all the same nail polish in a shade that complements their dress. This opaque lilac serves as a fresh alternative to traditional pink and looks fresh on tips and toes.
