If your groomsmaid has lots of jewelry and accessories that she’s accumulated over the years, help her keep it all organized with a sleek jewelry box that she’ll love to display on her dresser. Look for one that allows you to monogram with either her initial(s), or your wedding date. That way, she’ll always remember your wedding when she chooses her favorite jewelry du jour. We love this sturdy, bonded leather jewelry box from Pottery Barn. It’s got a removable upper tray that gives her plenty of room for all of her belongings, large and small. A sizeable mirror with optional monogramming and a locking closure round out this wonderful groomsmaid gift.

One of the best groomsmaid gifts you can buy is a spa kit. Give her the gift of luxurious relaxation with a kit that provides everything she’ll need to pamper herself in a warm bath and afterward. Our pick? This Farm Fresh spa kit from UncommonGoods. It’s full of all natural products with a soft, gentle scent that’ll make her feel her best.

Looking for a great robe that you can give to both your groomsmen and your groomsmaid? Opt for a unisex robe so everyone can match while you’re all getting ready before the wedding. Really, any neutral-colored robe can work, but we love this ultra-luxurious, 100% organic waffle robe by Coyuchi. This small, Northern California-based company is committed to using only top-quality, 100% organic materials, which is why their sheets and robes have become incredibly popular in recent years. The waffle weave on this robe is designed to be warm but not overwhelmingly so; and it’s super-soft out of the box, but gets softer with each wash. Colors available are white, light grey and dark grey.

Everybody needs a great weekend bag that holds just about everything. That’s why it makes for one of the best groomsmaid gifts you could choose. And the best part? You could opt to gift this to just your groomsmaid, or all of your attendants. Guys and gals alike are sure to get some serious use out of a really great weekend bag. And we think we’ve found the perfect one—it’s the Canvas Weekender by LO & Sons. It’s got ample room for all their belongings with a large interior that boasts a small zip-up compartment for important documents like passports. An exterior pocket is just the right place for a smartphone, and a separate bottom compartment is perfect for anything that should be kept away from clean clothing, like shoes or dirty laundry. Finally, a pass-thru sleeve allows them to secure this to their luggage handle if their travels will be more than just a few days. This canvas bag comes in six attractive colors to suit any taste and gender.

Wine Bottle Chiller
Your groomsmaid will always have a chilled bottle of her favorite Rosé at her disposal when you opt to give her a wine bottle chiller. Something modern and trendy but still feminine makes a great choice. You can opt for a nice marble one if that’s her style, but we’re in love with this beautiful copper chiller from VonShef. It’s a classy—and trendy!—copper finish with double-walled insulation to keep bottles cooler, longer. This will be an especially valued gift if your groomsmaid has been curating her own collection of copper.
