Bridesmaid Gift Bag Ideas - Bridesmaid Bag FillersWhats in the bag?

I recently had the privilege of standing next to my dear friend Amy as she said “I do” to her perfect match. You may remember the shabby chic bridal shower we gave her. The job of being a bridesmaid is a lot of fun but a good bridesmaid (and a great friend) puts a lot of effort and money into it. It’s so nice when the bride-to-be has fantastic taste and rewards her maids with fabulous gifts.

Bridesmaid Gift Bag Ideas via The Newlywed Pilgrimage blogI remember the “bridesmaid gift” brainstorming sessions that I had as a bride. I wanted to give my girls the perfect gift but because I had a destination wedding, every single guest in attendance was already receiving a tote bag full of goodies upon their arrival to Cabo. I improvised and gave my bridesmaids one of my absolute favorite things. I purchased shoes for the maids to wear at my wedding. I’m sure that was a first for these gals!

What are some great bridesmaid gift bag ideas? My friend Amy did an amazing job on her bridesmaid gifts so I asked her for a run down on where she bought the items that she used to fill our gift bags. Here’s the 411.

  1. These are great ideas! I am looking for something else to add to the personalised bracelets I have purchased recently on It’s Handmade. I think personalised jewellery is an amazing idea as it adds that unique touch to the presents and will give your bridesmaids a memento of the big day. It’s hard to know what to get so I am researching a little… the hairpins you posted look so pretty! And I really love how you packaged it all together. :)

  2. These are great gifts. They’re all so practical! The tote is great since it doubled as the gift bag. The robe is a pretty print, too!

    Wow, these are nice and affordable gifts. This in a goodybag would give me a really joyful experience if i got it. There’s something about goodybags thats just more enticing than a single bigger gift. The joy of discovering I guess?
    It’s also all in style and I must have (or make) those cute personalised hangers!

  5. Creativity is at its best with the lovely tote bag and equally lovely other items. The collection has everything to pleasantly surprise the bridesmaids; robes, hair pins, nail polish, body scrub, all are fabulous. Kudos to you, Jennifer!
