You picked the turquoise dress -- they happily agreed to wear it. You called them when your florist went out of business -- they went on a mission to find you a new one. You had a total freak-out when two of them couldn’t make your (third) dress fitting -- they still picked up the phone the next time you called. Yup, you know who we’re talking about: Your ever-so-loyal bridesmaids who’ve been super-supportive since you called them jumping up and down about your engagement (and they jumped with you!). They’ve done so much in your honor; now it’s time to say “thank you” with the perfect bridesmaid gift. Check out these top picks.

Best Bridesmaids Gifts by Christa Vagnozzi

The Best You Can Get

  • Hooded Organic Cotton Robe

    Christa says: On a lazy Sunday or after a tough day at the office, nothing feels better than vegging out at home. Treat your bridesmaids to their own version of living-room bliss with this cozy velour and terry robe (trust us, they won’t want to take it off!). Another idea: Instead of wrapping the robe in a box, put it in a tote bag with a scented candle and aromatherapy bath beads.

    • Eco-friendly
    • Roomy pockets
    • Add personalized embroidery (up to 15 characters)
  • Dillon Rogers Personalized Initial Pendant Gold Necklace

    Christa says: Low-hanging chains are one of the hottest accessories on today’s fashion runways and red carpets. They also go with pretty much anything! So boost your bridesmaids’ accessory collections with these chic pendant necklaces. Each one features a single initial embossed in leather, so you can design a special color/letter combo to complement every girl’s signature style.

    • Pendant comes in bubblegum, saddle, or teal
    • 18K gold plated
    • 16-inch ball chain
  • Metallic-Leather Minaudiere

    Christa says: There’s a lot to love about this clutch, but the number one thing is this: It goes with everything. Your bridesmaids can tote their lip-gloss and camera around on your wedding day in matching fashion and then use it again on any regular ole Saturday night. Use it to dress up a little black dress, or play it casual by pairing this gem with strappy sandals and bangles.

    • Comes in gold or silver
    • Metal-frame closure with glass jewel top
    • Cotton sateen lining
  • Bridesmaid Experience

    Christa says: Dinner cruises, cooking lessons, rides in a race car -- Cloud 9 Living has it all. Here’s how it works: You go on the website and purchase a specific experience for each bridesmaid, or simply buy a gift certificate and let her choose her own adventure. If one of your maids is sporty and daring, give her the thrill of hang gliding or bungee jumping. For the tamer chick, consider a walking tour or harbor cruise. Got a rocker on your hands? Sign her up for private DJ lessons. In other words, this site has something for everyone and is sure to make a bridesmaid gift your girls won’t forget.

    • Redeemable experience gifts for different regions
    • Can be personalized for each girl
    • Gift cards start at $75
  • Rabbit Corkscrew Gift Set

    Christa says: Let’s face it: Your bridesmaids know how to party (don’t you just love that about them?). So glam up their barware with this super-sleek wine opener. The Rabbit’s ergonomic cast handle fits every grip, making it almost impossible to rip the cork in half or, worse, send a piece floating into a bottle of Merlot. Another perk: The gift set comes with a black zip case, soft touch foil cutter, and spare corkscrew worm (you know, just in case). Cheers!

    • Easy to use
    • Opens a bottle of wine in three seconds
    • Includes black case for storage

You will be happy with any of these

  • iTunes Gift Card

    Christa says: Get your girls something they can really use, like, say, the latest songs they can’t stop playing (and replaying, and replaying, and…okay you get it). This one’s not brain surgery -- your maids can update their media libraries on you, which is a whole lot better than a monogrammed picture frame. Want to make it personal? Burn a CD for each of your top ladies with songs that remind you of times you’ve shared together and then include the iTunes gift card in a note thanking her for being such a great friend.

    • Satisfaction guaranteed
    • Can be used to purchase music, TV shows, or movies
    • Perfect for a last-minute gift
  • LeSportsac Small Travel Tote

    Christa says: The LeSportsac travel tote doesn’t just look cute -- it’s also easily packable. Translation: This bag can be shoved, stuffed, and stowed every which way, making it the perfect go-to for the wedding weekend (and after!). Three easy-access front pockets are just the right size for your gals’ cell phones, cameras, and makeup. The straps are wide, making them super-comfortable. Even better, the tote comes in a variety of fun patterns and colors, including summer stripes and a playful bicycle design.

    • Double handles with 11-inch drop
    • Includes matching zip-closure utility bag
    • Three zip pockets in front; one interior
  • Oversized Floppy Hat

    Christa says: Would your bridesmaids not be caught dead in baseball caps? Hey, we get it! Show off their style with this extra-wide brimmed hat that screams beach bum and diva. Give one to each of your sun-searching bridesmaids before the wedding so they don’t get burned (peeling skin = gross) when lounging poolside. With two color choices, it’s an instant upgrade to any swimsuit.

    • Features a rosette detail
    • Wide brim
    • Available in all-black and black/neutral
  • La-Tee-Da! Marble Effusion Fragrance Lamp

    Christa says: This fragrance lamp serves two functions your bridesmaids will love: It adds style to any room or space and spreads a yummy scent from corner to corner. So what’s the deal? Basically, there’s no way to screw this up. All your girls have to do is add the oil of their choice -- we’re all about the “Citrus Cilantro” scent for summer -- and then sit back and relax. Hey, you’ll get points for originality!

    • Swirled glass design
    • Wick and stone burner
    • Works in under an hour
  • Totes Floral Stick Umbrella

    Christa says: We know what you’re thinking: An umbrella? But here’s the deal: This Asian-inspired design is fashionable rain or shine, making it the perfect accessory not just for your wedding (although it’ll look great in your photos!), but also a fun, flirty add-on to your bridesmaids’ rainy-day looks. The blue-and-white floral pattern is definitely an upgrade from regular rain wear like bulky rubber boots, plastic-looking jackets, and a tacky golf umbrella with a company logo on it (c’mon, we know you have one).

    • 24 ribs
    • Basket-weave handle
    • 46-inch arc
