Give your bridesmaids gifts that'll last longer than your marriage's honeymoon phase.
Anyone who has been a bridesmaid can attest to the amount of work that goes into being a member of a Bride Tribe. From planning showers and bachelorette parties to acting as a human shield between your future Mother-in-Law, bridesmaidin' ain't easy. Part of bridal etiquette requires that the bride give gifts on her wedding day to her bridesmaids, as a gesture of love and gratitude. While you may be tempted to purchase Amazon gift cards to check this off your list of wedding day to-do list, take some time to give these tokens some thought.
Instead of one-and-done gifts, like a manicure at a nearby salon, give gifts that offer an extensive amount of use and will delight your bridesmaids for years to come.

Speaking of luxury, consider a cozy blanket topped off with their name on it. They'll think of you next time they're cuddled up in their next Netflix and chill session.

Aromatherapy is on the rise and its benefits are actually quite impressive. Therapeutic oil kits from companies like doTERRA give the gift of relaxation and improved well-being with scents that ensnare senses in the best possible way.
If one of your girls is a caffeine addict, offer bridesmaid tribute in the form of a coffee subscription. Coffee companies like Black Rifle Coffee have created customized coffee gift subscriptions to prevent your gal pals from being deprived of their morning kickstart. Besides, depending on how hard they party at the reception, this may act as their lifeline the next morning.
