    1. A simple constellation pendant they'll want to wear every day to proudly show off their star sign.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Hands down, one of the best necklaces I've ever invested in. I adore the simplicity of the overall look; it pairs well with neutral wardrobe colors, giving you a classy look. It's very complementary. Would definitely purchase again — specifically for bridesmaids' gifts." —Mindy L.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98 (available in 12 styles).

    2. Rings with a minimalist vibe so everyone can match without explicitly shouting "I'M WITH THE BRIDE!"

    Amazon

    Promising review: "As someone who doesn't like to wear jewelry, this was the perfect ring for me. Small enough that I don't need to take it off to put on lotion, but gorgeous enough to love it. It's also great quality." —Ashley J

    Get a single ring from Amazon for $13.50 (available in sizes 2–11).

    3. Or a chic initial necklace that'll make each member of your Bride Tribe feel seen.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Bought this as a gift for my best friend's birthday. I ordered the silver necklace with three silver discs. Very pretty and shiny. I know she will love it. If it didn't have her initials on there I would be tempted to keep it for myself! I am considering going back for the rose gold for me! Great gift that arrived quickly." —LauraATX

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in three styles and 10 lengths).

    4. A pouch with a notable Mean Girls reference your friends will appreciate every time they reach into it for their lipstick.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This bag is just too cute. I adore it. My bridesmaid was very surprised. It was bigger than I thought it would be, which is great." —Marisa

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    5. Disney-themed tanks for any bridal party with plans to head to the Happiest Place on Earth for a magical bachelorette.

    BlockPartyUsa / Etsy

    Your friends can also wear these tanks to the gym or to lounge around the house post-bridal festivities.

    Get it from BlockPartyUsa on Etsy for $13.56+ (available in unisex sizes XS–XL, in three styles, and six colors).

    6. Trendy sunglasses that'll blow those lame, overdone pairs out of the water.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I recently attended a bachelorette party and wanted to bring something to add a little something to the festivities. When I saw these I just fell in love. Everyone that attended loved their sunglasses. In fact, I still wear them every day. They are my new favorite pair. Every bachelorette party needs these!" —Mom of 3

    Get a set of seven from Amazon for $27.85.

    7. A wine tumbler they can take with them to the bach party or to sip out of on the wedding day without fear of spilling thanks to its handy lid.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is an awesome glass to add to your summer fun. I used it alllll week at the lake. Loved having it on the boat to keep my drinks cool much longer than a regular cup. I know it was made for wine but I have also used it for mixed drinks and iced coffee. Having a lid that closes is so helpful to keep the bugs and lake/pool/squirt gun water out of my beverage. I am coming back to buy additional sets for a few of my friends as gifts. I even caught my husband using it. ;) " —Kelkel3

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95+ (available in 22 styles).

    8. A floral tote that won't have "bridesmaid" plastered on it, perfect for using even after your big day has come and gone.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This bag is very cute. The overall aesthetic of the bag is very cute. I really like that it pairs well with all outfits. It is medium-sized and actually holds a fair amount of items. I've placed two of my textbooks and other essentials inside the bag and it's is very pretty in person. I also love that this bag zips up and has a internal pocket inside." —Kagero Tanaka

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in six styles).

    9. Or a tote that'll pay tribute to your love for your chosen girl squad.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The quality is MUCH better than I expected. Somehow the bag is also much bigger than I had anticipated, even having glanced at the measurements. I just needed it for everyday use in lieu of a purse for things like my phone, lip balm, and water bottle, and this will hold that and a few textbooks, I think." —gmichelle

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 24 styles).

    10. A glimmering lip balm to provide a party for their pout — it goes on clear and will leave their lips looking perfectly pink.

    Winky Lux

    Promising review: "This is the perfect shade...for anyone! I just love the little bit of flush it brings to my pale lips." —Tiffany W.

    Get it from Winky Lux for $14.

    11. A rose quartz bracelet you can gift to your bridesmaids in hopes it'll bring them some ~good vibes~.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Gorgeous! This is my first purchase of this brand and I am very impressed. This bracelet came in a gorgeous gift box, which was inside of another protective box which is a nice touch. The weight of the stones feels correct for real stones and are breathtaking!. This bracelet is very comfortable and looks high quality. Also, taking them into water has caused NO problems. Comfortable to wear all the time, even while I'm sleeping." —DWales

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in sizes XS–L).

    12. A trinket dish with your BFF's initial on it so they'll have a designated place to store their fave piece of jewelry.

    Amazon

    You don't need to be engaged to be given a trinket dish! I got these for my bridesmaids and they loved them — it's the little things that truly bring the most joy, IMHO.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    13. A jade roller that is said to help decrease puffiness and revitalize skin, so your bridesmaids will feel gorgeous from the inside out as they stand by your side.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love everything about this product... the quality, the packaging, the sweet notes inside the box. I cannot believe at this price they are able to create such beautiful packaging and such a great product. I will buy more as gifts!" —Madelyn Spiegelman

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    14. A cheeky handkerchief to make your pals giggle even though they know they'll likely be bawling when you walk down the aisle.

    Boldfaced / Etsy

    If you're a fan of Vanderpump Rules you may have seen a similar one in Brittany's bridesmaid proposals!

    Promising review: "I ordered these for my bridesmaids gifts and they are just as amazing in person!! Can’t wait to give them to the girls." —Elizabeth Williams

    Get it from Boldfaced on Etsy for $10+ (available in six styles, with or without a lace bag, and in sets of 3–17).

    15. Velvet scrunchies that'll be a sweet nod to your shared childhood experience and become your friend's go-to hair accessory.

    Amazon

    Don't even think about those "to have and to hold" hair ties — they're fine, but these will remain part of your pal's accessory arsenal even when your wedding is done.

    Promising review: "Great quality and color variety. There is not a single scrunchie that I will not wear in the rotation. The size of the band is perfect to go around a hair tie once or twist twice to hold my hair back on its own. Very cute and a great deal. Would recommend." —chickenlamp

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $6.99+ (also available in sets of 12 or 20 and in four styles).

    16. A lil' plant baby, because your bridesmaids deserve treats that don't ~succ~.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Get a set of four for $18.99+ (also available in sets of 12 or 20 and in a gift box).

    17. And a hexagon-shaped planter your squad can place on their desk, window sill, or wherever makes them happy and think of you and what a great friend you are.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Cutest little planters everrrr!!! I love these!!! Very nicely made, love that they have a drain hole, covered nicely with a little round mesh fabric so the dirt doesn’t drain out as well. Will be using these as little gifts at a shower! Will be buying these again for sure, thank you!" —Amy

    Get a set of two for $8.90+ (also available in sets of three or four and in two styles).

    18. A candle in a decorative tin with an intoxicating scent that would make anyone hyped to be a part of your bridal squad.

    19. Customizable Taylor Swift lyric tank tops for you and your squad that'll let each of you show off your individual personalities.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, bussydesigns / Etsy

    Whether you're a devotee of the Fearless era, all about Rep, or want some merch for the newly released single, you can have ANY lyric you wanted printed on this tank. My sisters surprised me for my bachelorette party by having everyone choose their fave Tay lyric for matching shirts. The shirts ran a bit big, but it is worth nothing the glitter has stayed intact during multiple washes. You and your squad are gonna want these for the next tour — I promise you.

    Get it from bussydesigns on Etsy for $16.19 (available in sizes XS–2XL, in 63 T-shirt colors and 23 tank top colors).

    20. An essential oil roller bottle to help your pals de-stress while supporting you through your shower and wedding.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "What a delightful little find. I’m not an expert on essential oils but I was looking for something to just give me a little boost throughout the day. These 'throw it in your purse' size roll-ons do just that. I was surprised at how much I enjoy the slightly spicy Shield, which can only help with all the illness going around this winter. Also, I leave Sleep on my nightstand and have made it part of my bedtime routine. I’m truly enjoying these." —Alex

    Get a set of four for $19.99.

    21. Or a sheet mask they can use for an at-home spa night or a quick skin refresher the night before the wedding.

    Amazon

    This set has over 2.5K positive reviews! Check out our full review on it here.

    Promising review: "I am so happy with my purchase. They came nicely shipped in a cute yellow bag, inside a durable cardboard box. The price was amazing. The directions are in multiple languages and English was easy to find. The first one I tried was the SYN-ake, it was a 15–20 minute mask. About 10 minutes into it I could feel it working and the skin tightening around my eyes, two hours later it still feels tight and so soft! I love these." —Rach Eckols

    Get a set of 16 for $10.49.

    22. Unique lotus-inspired earrings to wear whenever, not just in honor of your wedding.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This set was an incredible value for a beautiful selection of earrings. It’s cool how you put the post in your ear, then a dangle, then the earring back — it’s such an elegant look. The assortment is lovely, including some earrings that are fancier and some more casual. Excellent collection! Highly recommend! A+." —J. McKeon

    Get a set of nine from Amazon for $11.99.

    23. PreHeels spray that'll create a barrier between their beautiful new bridesmaid shoes and precious feet.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Used this for the first time and loved it! Business trip, wore heels day and night for five days at a convention center. NO blisters or sore spots. Highly recommend for times you need to wear heels and walk all day. It creates a protective barrier on your foot so your skin doesn't rub against your shoe. I was skeptical that it would work as well as I was told it would. But it was fabulous!" —wartha

    Check out our full review on PreeHeels here.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in 1.5 oz. or 2.5 oz.).

    24. Champagne and rosé gummies you'll all love snacking on while you skim through bridal magazines.

    Sugarfina

    Get them from Sugarfina for $8.50+ (available in three sizes).

    25. A vegan coffee body scrub to moisturize their skin while also treating them to the sweet scent of their fave caffeinated drink so they'll feel more awake after you ask them to arrive at the crack of dawn for hair and makeup.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm a big fan of this scrub. Not too rough, but exfoliates my skin very well to leave it nice and smooth. I also really like the smell, strongly of coffee and some orange, but it's definitely not overwhelming. It can be pretty messy slathering it on, so I recommend putting it on in the shower or tub, turning on the water after you're all done scrubbing and letting it sink into your skin for a bit. A little goes a really long way. Highly recommended!" —S

    Get it from Amazon for $9.90.

    26. A glamorous bangle they'll get tons of compliments on because it's specially engraved.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this cuff bracelet! Looks beautiful, just as pictured. I have been wearing it daily for a couple of weeks already and the finish still looks fresh and new!" —Dee S

    Get it from Amazon for $22.50 (available in three colors and three font styles).

    27. And Friends-themed bachelorette shirts for the Rachel and Phoebe to your Monica.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in unisex sizes S–2XL and 12 colors).
