Bridesmaids Gifts from Mark & Graham

Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting times in your life and it wouldn't be the same without all your best friends to help you along the way. From input on the decor and creating a playlist for the DJ to planning your bachelorette party and showering you with gifts and games at your bridal shower, these girls are here for you! As a thank you to them for being a part of your big day and for being a lifelong friend, it's customary to gift them something special.

We know picking out the perfect gift can be hard. 

Where do you start? 

How much do you spend? 

When do you present the gift?

Rocky Mountain Bride is here to help you! We've compiled ten of our favorite personalized gifts from Mark & Graham that your bridesmaids will love. And, we'll answer a few of your burning bridesmaid gift questions too.

1. Personalized Will You Be My Bridesmaid Box

Figuring out how to ask your sisters and friends to be apart of your wedding party is easier said than done. While there are no rules saying you have to ask with a gift, we think these "Will You Be My Bridesmaid Gift Boxes" from Mark & Graham are perfect. I mean, who can say no to these personalized proposal boxes that come in neutral, blush and navy hues. Brides-to-be can personalize one item inside the box for their bridesmaids, as well as include a matching engravement on the outside of the wooden box. The "Will You Be My Bridesmaid Gift Boxes" were designed in collaboration with Parcel. Lucky for you, the content of each box varies so you can match each gift set to each of your bridesmaids for a truly thoughtful gift all the girls will love.

2. Travel Jewelry Case

Every girl needs a travel-sized jewelry case to keep their precious gems organized on vacation. This cute, durable case comes in 10+ colors so you can gift your bridesmaids something that matches their personality or your color scheme.

Consider placing a pair of earrings in the case for them to wear on your big day! They will be so ecstatic, not to mention they'll have a little something special to help them relive all the memories of your wedding.

3. Monogrammed Robes 

Getting ready photos are some of our favorite moments! This intimate time with your best gals is full of laughter, tears and so much more. What's better than to have these moments captured while wearing coordinating robes. Mark & Graham has a variety of flirty, fun and feminine robes that you can monogram for your bridesmaids. Pair them with a personalized wooden hanger for the ultimate day-of gift. Robes are also a gift that your bridesmaids can wear for days to come! 

Here are a few options we love:

Flutter Robe

Lace Robe

Cotton Kimono Robe

4. Sleek Name Necklace

We're swooning over these "Sarah Chloe Modern Block Necklaces" and we think your best gals will too! These custom necklaces are available in sterling silver, 18K gold, and 14K gold. These block necklaces make for a bold style statement. 

Be sure you order these sooner rather than later because ship time ranges from 3-4 weeks. While there are no rules on when you have to gift your bridesmaids their gifts, we recommend the rehearsal dinner, getting ready suite or a separate brunch or luncheon.

5. Warm Weather Tote

We're all in favor of spoiling your bridesmaids if the budget allows. And, these warm weather Rio Totes are just darling. If you're headed somewhere warm for your bachelorette party, or wedding, then this is a gift you can't pass up. Fill it with other warm-weather goodies like chapstick, sunscreen, sunglasses and a personalized towel for sunbathing. Of course, in Mark & Graham fashion, you can personalize them with each girl's monogram.

6. Earring Gift Set

This "Earring Gift Set" is another great way to ask your sisters and friends to be a part of your "I do" crew. But, could also be gifted on the morning of the wedding. We just adore the custom champagne flute which is perfect for a toast to the bride while getting ready. And, the earrings are subtle but sleek enough to go with any bridesmaid dress. 

7. Leather Wristlets

If your bridesmaids don't have pockets in their gowns, then we think this is the perfect accessory. Gift your gals personalized leather wristlets so they can carry their phone, ID, and lipstick in style throughout the entire wedding day and night. Sure, you'll have a professional photographer capturing each and every moment but sometimes those captured on your wedding parties' iPhones are the ones you'll cherish the most. Create a custom wedding hashtag or a shared album to easily collect your friends' photos from your big day.

After the wedding festivities are over, these wristlets are great for a night out in town or shopping around the local farmers market. 

8. Turkish Herringbone Throws

We love a gift with purpose and these ultra-soft herringbone throws are perfect for any season. Whether it's a chilly spring morning or crisp fall afternoon, your bridesmaids can wrap these around their shoulders during your ceremony or cocktail hour. Once the wedding festivities are over, these make for great travel blankets. Carry one with you when you fly in case the airport or airplane is chillier than you anticipated.


9. Clear Belt Bags

While we're not a fan of the new stadium rules, we are a fan of concerts, sports games, and festivals and we know your bridesmaids are too! These cute "Clear Belt Bags" will pass all the checkpoints while allowing you to accessorize in style. The detachable belt strap is adjustable and is the perfect size for keeping your essentials secure with the magnetic snap closure. Pull the look together by mixing and matching colorful pouches and accessories to make the inside of your bag a style statement. We recommend gifting this at your bachelorette party in case a fun concert or festival is on the agenda!

10. Palm Leaf Set

We may be rooted in the Rockies, but we aren't opposed to a warm weather wedding or bachelorette party! The Palm Leaf Nightshirts are a super chic getting ready option especially if your wedding theme is on the preppier side in the summer-time. Pair the nightshirt with the matching eye mask, luggage tag, and pouch for a complete gift set. If you're headed to Mexico or Florida for your bachelorette party, these are a must! We guarantee you'll be the cutest wedding party at any resort!

You're not obligated to get each of your bridesmaids the same gift. So be sure to take into consideration their interests and personalities. Mark & Graham has something for everyone. For more ideas, check out their Bridesmaids Gift Guide.
