Often one of the last things to check off your list of gifts is that final token of gratitude for your beloved bridesmaids. Today’s Bridal Party Gift Round Up is here to act as a little gift guide to help ease the “What to give?” woes. The items in this next assortment are all about fun, feminine little extras that are the perfect compliment to something practical for the wedding or something completely customized for each girl.

Bridal Party Gifts: Round III

Row One: Stephanie Johnson makes great cosmetic bags, and this one is the perfect size to tote around makeup for the day-of, and well, everyday for that matter. To go the extra mile, tuck a favorite lipstick inside. What woman doesn’t love a beautifully scented (and packaged) soap. For those who want to splurge, it’s also a lovely little item to nestle into a little gift bag for your maids with gift certificate to a local spa. TokyoMilk’s solid perfume is ideal for ladies that are on the go and is just the right thing to pop into an charming clutch.

Row Two: So cute and frilly, Show Pony’s screen-printed totes are a fabulous gift to give your ladies so they can carry their extra goodies from the wedding weekend in style. Anthropologie’s apron collection is not only completely and utterly adorable, but makes for the perfect gift to give your “maids.” Pair it with your favorite cookbook and you have a pretty sweet gift. Brooklyn Book Binder is a one stop shop for hand-bound journals, albums and calendars in a wide variety of prints. Write a little note on the inside of the journal cover, circle a few days on the calendar to get coffee with your maids, fill a photo album with pics from the good ole days. It's all about personalization with these gifts.

Row Three: Roberta Roller Rabbit is my go-to shop for unique finds, so I couldn’t resist the ultra-hip pouches that comes in her fun, worldly prints and are great for just about anything. Fill it up with your favorite magazines and a bottle of wine for your girls to indulge. This vintage camera inspired photo album is a super sleek book to store fun photos of you and your maids. A completely fun and practical little extra, Funktion hand towels are as cute as can be and are sure to be a hit among your favorite ladies.

Thank you so much to Carrie for inspiring such fun gift purchases! The bottom line...think personality. No need to spend a fortune if your gifts are thoughtful and reflect the personalities of your friends.

Coming up...a SUPER fun wedding with lots of stealable ideas!
