From Rustically Engraved Jewelry to Seasonally Suave Sweets

Although monogrammed slippers may seem thoughtful at the time, there are much more fashionable and unique ways to thank your wedding party with these bridesmaid gifts. The first way to keep your bridesmaids happy is to keep their dresses budget appropriate and flattering. Don't assume everyone will look good in that purple taffeta halter dress: offering choice and individual styles is never a bad thing. There are also services that allow bridesmaids to trade in their dresses afterwards to avoid them collecting dust in their closets.

You can also consider giving coordinating accessories that will match their bridesmaid outfit. Their toes will be thanking you when you present matching sequin Toms instead of five-inch stilettos.

Another way to thank your bridesmaids is to treat them to a luxe spa treatment. What better way to unwind than with designer chocolates, alcoholic treats and pampered toes. For the more Beverly Hills appropriate version, add a little botox to the mix.
