Budgeting for your wedding is hard, especially when cuts affect things near and dear to your heart. Fortunately, the gifts you buy for your loved ones who take part in the big day don’t have to break the bank. These 18 gifts prove budget-friendly can be cute, functional and super fun – leaving room for everything else (aka the latest wedding trends). Now that’s something you and your girls can raise a glass to.
1. Rocksbox Marbled Jewelry Tray Kit ($25): Poor French puns aside, this little tray is pretty darn cute — your girls might not even believe you made it yourself. Each kit has enough supplies to make two separate trays, which means it’s also easy on the budget.
2. Fig and Vine Handmade Bridal Floral Robes ($20): There’s a certain order to things as you get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime event; you’ll only slip into your gown after the hair and make-up is done. That’s where these adorable robes come in. They’re easy to get on and off, cozy to wear while you get ready AND perfect for photo ops.
3. Anthropologie Albeit Primp and Polish Kit ($28): Another foolproof gift is nail polish, especially when it comes in a classic red hue. This kit includes a matching lipstick, as well as shiny gold nail decals.
4. Stila Cosmetics Lip Glaze ($22): You simply can’t go wrong when it comes to gifting your girls with something as fun as lip gloss, especially one from a trusted brand like Stila. Get a set for each girl or split it up and give everyone a gloss in her perfect shade.
5. Trex and Unicorn Bridesmaid Tank Top ($22): Whether heading out for the bachelorette party or celebrating after the “I dos,” these soft tank tops are a gift that’s both fun and functional. Give them before the wedding and everyone can have matching tanks to wear while getting ready. So perfect for pictures!
6. Pinch Minimergency Kit for Bridesmaids ($16): As a bride, you’re spending a good amount of time imagining all that could go wrong on the big day. First of all, stop that! Your day will be perfect. Second, pick up these pre-packed pouches that have everything your bridesmaids will need on the day so you can all breathe easy.
7. Gigglosophy Pave Cuff Bracelet ($18): A simple rose-gold bangle will set off a bridesmaid’s dress just as easily as it sets off casual jeans and a white tee. In other words, a little bit of bling goes a long way in terms of versatility.
