If you are considering jewelry, you could have their named hand stamped or engraved into a necklace or bracelet. For example, a charm bracelet would be ideal for this!

A Girl's Best Friend: Shoes! Girl's love shoes, plus they can wear them in your wedding or at the reception. You can go with heels, flats or sandals that will compliment your wedding. Maybe, you are having your bridesmaids wears heels for your wedding. We all know heels can sometimes be uncomfortable, so give them flip-flops for the wedding reception.

Clutch In Style: Another big wedding trend to hit the scene is ditching the bouquets and replacing them with wedding clutches. This can serve as a great gift for your bridesmaids too. Provide them in the colors of your wedding, add embellishments or have the inside of them personalized. Make sure they can use them again, possibly not buying clutches in orange or an off-the-wall color.
It will be a perfect way for your bridesmaids to place touch up makeup, cameras and phones in them as well during the reception. That way, they're not lugging their huge bag around the entire night. Plus, your bridesmaids will be able to carry them during a night out on the town.
