There’s something so special about having a maid of honor by your side during your wedding adventure. Not only are they there to support you during the exciting moments, from the engagement party to wedding dress shopping, but they’re also there to help you navigate the tricky times. You might turn to your maid of honor late at night for a wedding vent session or ask them to take on a handful of tasks that you could use a little help with.

Throughout the entire wedding process, your bestie has your back, both when you need her to, and often behind the scenes. So, as you’re thinking about ways to thank her for her endless support, here are nine heartfelt gifts that she will adore.

Custom Wedding Art Print

A keepsake item that your maid of honor will cherish is a custom art print based off a photo of the two of you at your wedding. Once your photographer sends over your gallery, find the best picture of you two together and create a custom art print of it for her to hang above her desk or in her room.

Initial Necklace

Giving your maid of honor a gift she can wear on your wedding is a sweet way of saying thank you and helping her accessorize her look for the big day. Get her an initial necklace, in gold, silver, or rose gold, based on the type of jewelry she frequently wears. This style necklace can help elevate a look for a special occasion but also pull together an everyday outfit too.

Instant Camera

Capturing all of the fun memories between you and your best friend is extra important, especially during big milestones and events, like your wedding. A fun way for you two to take photos together is with an instant camera. You can snap pictures on your bachelorette party, at the bridal shower, and on the big day. After the wedding is over, ask her for the photos, and make her a scrapbook using all of them.

Engraved Bracelet

An elegant spin on friendship bracelets from your past are gold or silver engraved bracelets for both you and her to wear together. Think about a quote, message, or inside joke that means a lot to both of you and have it engraved inside of the bracelet. This is a special piece of jewelry that can always remind you two of this time in your life.

A Comfy Blanket

If your maid of honor is someone who seems to have it all, an item that they can get cozy with after a long weekend away for your bachelorette party — or even after your wedding weekend — is a comfortable throw blanket for their couch or bed. Pick one that goes nicely with their home decor or ask them what accent color works best for a living room surprise.

A Special Scent

Scents often remind people of a certain time in their life. To help capture the memories of these moments together, find a perfume that you both enjoy the smell of or go together to get one custom made. Wear it during the wedding adventure and then whenever you both decide to wear it again in the future, it will take you back to this special time. Here's a well-liked scent we'd recommend.

Skincare Essentials

A self care treat that your maid of honor can enjoy during and after your wedding is a set of skincare products from a brand that they’ve always wanted to try. Buy a few essential items, like a face mask, moisturizer, and hydrating lip balm. This is the perfect treat for a best friend who enjoys trying out new beauty products.

A Special Travel Bag

If your maid of honor is always on the go, gift them a carry-on travel bag with their initials monogrammed on it. You can make the gift extra personalized by adding in a few treats in the bag, like their favorite snack, an eye mask, or a must-read book before giving them the travel bag.

A Stylish Water Bottle

Your maid of honor will probably be running around for most of your wedding and helping out with a lot of last-minute tasks. To help her stay hydrated, pick up a stylish and sleek water bottle. She can toss it in her tote bag and use it after the wedding for smoothies, water, or her favorite daytime beverage.
