Getting Married? We Found the Best Bridesmaid’s Gifts for Under $50

Because you don’t have to spend a fortune to show your girls how much you care. 

By Liz Kennedy

Nine weddings. Count 'em. I’ve been a bridesmaid nine glorious times. And while I haven’t loved all of the dresses I’ve been asked to wear, I’m lucky that I have amazing friends who have gifted me with equally amazing tokens of their appreciation for walking down the aisle on their behalf. But getting married is expensive (been there, done that!), so if you can get away with saving a little money on gifts for your girls—while still getting them something sweet—you’ll have extra money to spend money on the honeymoon. And we all know the honeymoon is where it's at.

Shop these great gifts (all under $50!) and your bridesmaids will say thank you no matter what dress you make them wear.
