Etsy alternatives to bridesmaids gift ideas
Today more than ever, it’s important to be more conscious about the decisions we make when it comes to our shopping. Especially on such important days, like a wedding day!
It is actually quite easy to find environmentally conscious and sustainable bridal party gifts! The first place to look for such things would be your local boutiques or small businesses, like Etsy sellers.
This gift guide is for you if you want to find something that not only suits your style but also feels that extra special. We have gathered all sorts of fair trade, sustainably made, or handmade ideas that will make your bridesmaids feel so loved!
When it comes to bridesmaids’ jewelry gifts, we have seen several different trends. Some brides like to get all the bridesmaids the same necklace, same earrings, or the same bracelet. Obviously, the maid of honor can have something slightly different.
We also have a list of best groomsmen gift ideas we recommend you check. The same principles apply here: is it meaningful? Do you really need to personalize it? Can you gift an experience instead?
We only recommend here items we personally love and have seen being gifted at weddings in the past.
Bridesmaid proposal jewelry
A sweet and inexpensive way to ask your closest friends to be part of your wedding day.
This charm bracelet is an extremely affordable gift idea to propose to your bridesmaids.
Bridesmaids Jewelry Gifts
This Etsy shop has so many beautiful pieces of jewelry! We would highly recommend having a look here for your bridesmaids’ gifts. The price range is really affordable and I am pretty sure you might end up with something, too.
This Etsy shop based in the UK is one of my favorites for dainty, sweet jewelry I would wear on special occasions.
A gorgeous pearl necklace for your bridal party to wear on your wedding day, which probably suits any type of dress.
We do try and recommend here bridesmaids gift ideas but just could not leave out this stunning Etsy shop we discovered. Emilia Rae Bridal offers a variety of bridal jewelry, which I think would fit for a bridesmaid just as much. Just look at these earrings! Also, the price is incredible, so we would 10/10 recommend it!
We’ve seen bridesmaids receive hairpins from the bride so many times. Again, Emilia Rae Bridal Etsy shop has the most beautiful and sweet options, we had to add to this list.
How fun to receive a gif that is not only pretty but also practical? These travel jewelry cases look perfect for a gift and for this price, you probably could add a pair of earrings inside, as well.
All things linen
We see more and more couples investing in linen robes for their bridal party instead of the high street silky ones. It’s just a joy to see the girls walking around in beautiful, quality fabrics. You can tell it’s handmade by a small business owner. And the best place to find these types of products is Etsy, of course.
Here are a few Etsy shops we would highly recommend:
Handmade linen robes
I admit, out of all these gifts mentioned on the list, a linen robe would be my absolute favorite. IT ticks every single box for me and would make for an ideal bridesmaid gift.
Linen Kimono Robe
Bridesmaids nightdress Organic cotton
Linen Pajama set
Ladies are raving about this Etsy shop, and especially about this pajama set. You can clearly see why. Such a gorgeous handmade gift for a friend, which she most likely will treasure for a long time after. A big favourite of ours, too!
Bridesmaids linen dresses
I have seen bridesmaids’ linen dresses on several occasions at weddings and absolutely loved it! They work perfectly for a boho-style wedding, an outdoor event, or something non-traditional.
Two of my all-time favorite Etsy shops for linen dresses and so many other items you will want in your wardrobe:
What a beautiful linen dress! Because these are handmade, you can order in any color you wanted for your wedding day, so it’s definitely worth a look! I would literally order every single item in their Etsy shop, they are all so pretty! Their customers are raving about them, too!
I’ve known about Son de Flor for quite a while now and their dresses and everything else they make is so beautifully simple and attractive. Truly love this Etsy shop and I could not leave them out of this list.
when you think of a gift for someone, you simply can not go wrong with candles. These are some of our favourite from Etsy, I am sure you will love, too. Also, their packing and attention to detail are pretty outstanding. What a beautiful gift to receive!
This soy wax candle gift set might be one of the best I found on Etsy. For £15, you get a handmade product, beautifully wrapped, perfect for a bridesmaid gift, I think.

Did you even know you can get fair-trade coffee off Etsy? Of course, while you’re at it, you can also find the perfect ceramic cup, spoons, the whole set really. But coffee beans? Why not? If your bridal party is really passionate about their coffee, what better gift than something they already love!
