A Custom Hanger
This one is as much a gift to you as much as it is for your girls. Order a custom hanger with their names for their bridesmaid dresses—a cool keepsake that’ll also look great in your wedding photos.
Cookie *DO* Treat!
Here’s a sweet idea—there’s a place in New York City that serves scoops of cookie dough like ice cream. Yes, you read that right. Does your squad have a sweet tooth? Order the Bridesmaid Proposal Set stat.
OK, not mind-bending here, but people seem to forget these days how lovely it feels to receive flowers. Consider popping the question by delivering a gorgeous arrangement to your BFF’s door.
Why should brides get all the bling? Share the jewelry love with your tribe and gift each of your girls a necklace she’ll wear every day. Then present it to her in a pretty dish.

The Big Kahuna … Treat your crew to a mini trip. Surprise each of your bridesmaids with a Bride Squad Luggage Tag by The Paisley Box, then take care of all the details—dinner reservations, drinks, the Airbnb—so that all they have to do is say “Yes!”.
