Six Ways to Spoil Your Best Maids

What are some of the best gifts for bridesmaids that they’ll actually use? We did a quick round-up of a few fun items that run the gamut of cool clutches, gorgeous dresses and even linens for your best gal pals.

1. Dress rehearsal

Plum Pretty Sugar is one of the brands you’ll see us touting for their fun robes (see below for more on that). But did you know they also make beautiful dresses perfect for destination weddings? I recently was sent one to try Lottie Dress in Kiss Mix and wore it to a rehearsal dinner in Maui. It couldn’t have been more perfect for the event and the fabric was flattering, easy to care for and lucky for me, I got compliments all night long. $98

2. YOU get luxury linens, and YOU get luxury linens…

Why is the couple the only one getting bedding for the wedding? And who doesn’t love a fresh set of sheets? One of our current favorites is Gryphon. Their soft as a rose petal sheets and pillowcases will put you into dreamland in ten seconds flat. New linens might be something you’ve registered for, but consider giving it as a gift to your bridesmaids who take bedtime seriously. Prices vary.

3. Bring home the smell of paradise

Having just visited Tahiti and recalling the amazing scents that are so indicative to the destination, the minute I received Marine + Vine’s Tahitian Oil, my olfactory memories went into overdrive and I was mentally transported right back to paradise. I highly recommend spraying the oil right out of the shower for maximum benefit. The nourishing oil provides an instant glow and the scent stays with you from morning until night. This is the perfect gift for those bridesmaids traveling with you to a tropical destination, even if it’s not Tahiti. $62

4. The last clutch you’ll ever own

Modjewel created a clutch that allows you to switch out the sides and clasp to create different looks for any occasion. The sides adhere to the clutch with magnets, so the bag is rather heavy, however changing your look is as easy as 1, 2, 3. The versatility of the bag and quality craftsmanship provides your ladies with long-lasting style. Bare Bag kits start at $228. Additional covers, straps and clasps are extra.

5. The ultimate yoga mat

As most true “yogis” will tell you, not all yoga mats are created equally. Being an avid yoga lover, I would agree with this sentiment. Some mats are too thin, or even too thick. Some aren’t great for hot yoga and others can feel cheap. Big Raven Yoga not only created a yoga mat that can go from a Bikram class to Nidra, but they did it with fun patterns that you can customize for the yogi in your wedding party. $107

6. Getting ready robes that they’ll actually wear again

Getting ready photos just aren’t complete without the wedding party in matching robes. Am I right? As a bit of a self-proclaimed robe snob, I have to say, a bell-sleeved scratchy robe, no matter how cute the pattern, just isn’t going to be my go-to day-to-day and will likely end up sitting in my closet long after that photo is taken. Do your maids a favor and shop the Plum Pretty Sugar robe collection. They are silky soft, lightweight and perfectly fitting. Shop by fabric, color and length to ensure you get the perfect match for your lady pals. Prices vary.
