They've been your right-hand-ladies, threw an amazing hen's night and scrub up alright... so you want to treat your Maid of Honour and Bridesmaids with a present to say thank you. But the wedding budget is getting tight. What do you do? No stress - we've collated some great bridesmaid gift ideas for under $25 right here!
Bridesmaid gifts that they can use on the wedding day
I'm a big believer in making your wedding items do double-duty, and there's no reason why your wedding gifts shouldn't do the same. So our first few ideas are things that your bridesmaids can use on your wedding day, such as:
Cotton Bridesmaid Robes
Get ready in style with matching bridesmaid robes. As a bonus, get a discount for ordering more (i.e. one for each of your bridal party!)
If you're more a tshirt and jeans kinda-girl, then a cute set of matching tees to wear to the wedding rehearsal, or on the morning of the wedding might be a fun idea
Bridesmaid Jewellery Sets
Deck your girls out in beautiful blush rose gold jewellery sets, presented in a gift box with a personalised message.
For something a little less formal, but still beautiful enough to wear for your wedding day and beyond, my pick is these personalised bar bracelets, engraved with a special date or short message.
Or these pretty drop earrings, in a gift box with a personal message are gorgeous too.
While you might be decked out on top, after tottering around on heels all afternoon there may be tears... so why not shout your girls (and yourself) some "cinderollies" - glamourous wedding flats for when you need to ditch your heels. They fold up into a purse or clutch so they won't be a hassle to carry round, and they'll keep your bridesmaids on the dancefloor all night long.
And if it gets cold, a pretty pashmina shawl is a great way to keep warm:
And if you have a bridesmaid that tends to get a bit hysterical at weddings
Personalised bridesmaid gifts
If you're all sorted for jewellery and what to wear, you might be feeling like there's not many options for bridesmaid presents. But don't despair! Here's a few more suggestions:
These cute makeup bags have your Maid of Honour or bridesmaids names on the front, with a special thank you message inside.
If your bridesmaids have joined you in "sweating for the wedding" then a matching drink bottle and gym makeup bag combo might be a fun idea:
Pretty bridesmaid gifts for the home
Nothing is more classy and timeless than marble, and these chic marble coasters are sure to go down a treat

Don't discount a ring dish if your bridesmaids aren't married - these wee polymer clay bowls are are super handy for storing jewellery, stationery, knick-knacks or even small candles.
Or you want to go less dish - these concrete ring cones are delicious
Personal words of wisdom
There is a plethora of beautiful typographic prints over on Etsy that are downloadable files - meaning you purchase, download and print them yourself. This makes them a cheap and fast gift. Why not find a special quote for each of your bridesmaids? Here's a few of my favs:
