If you’re planning a destination beach wedding, you’re probably wondering things like: what gift do you give a bridesmaid as a thank you gift, how much should you spend on bridesmaid gifts, and are there any bridesmaid gifts that relate to a beach wedding? If this sounds familiar, we’ve gathered 25 of the best beach bridesmaid gifts for your destination wedding at various price points. If you have a larger budget, you can always pair multiple of these items together to create a larger gift.

You’ll want to thank your bridal party for all of the support, time, effort, and money they’ve put into making your wedding and wedding planning a special time for you. Although giving a gift isn’t required, it’s the traditional way to thank your bridesmaids, along with a hand-written thank you note. The amount you spend on bridesmaids gifts is up to you and what you’re comfortable with, whether that’s $50 or $250 per bridesmaid. If you decide to thank your bridesmaids in a way other than giving a gift, you should still be writing a thank you note to show your appreciation.

In addition to using these bridesmaid gift ideas for your wedding day thank you gifts, they can also be used for bridesmaid asking gifts for your beach bridesmaid proposals. Some of these bridesmaid gift ideas can even work for mother of the bride gifts and mother of the groom gifts. Additionally, there are a few items that can work for bridesmaid pajama sets and bridesmaid getting ready outfits for a beach wedding.

When it comes to bridesmaid gifts, you want it to feel like you chose something special for your bridesmaids, and one of the best ways to do this is to have items customized for each bridesmaid with monogrammed and personalized bridesmaid gifts. Many of the items on this list have the option to add personalization, but it isn’t required, as you can always give the item without the personalization added.

Check out the best bridesmaid gift ideas for your coastal, beach, nautical, or tropical destination wedding.
