There's a lot that goes into planning a wedding: finding the
perfect dress, securing a venue, booking a photographer... the to-do list is never-ending. And as much as brides trust in their dictionary-sized wedding planning books, there's usually that one task that's left for last minute or gets forgotten completely. We're talking about small traditions, like the gifts that show your appreciation for all the time and money your friends have put into your big day.
Don't just settle for the usual engraved silk robe or
friendship bracelets. Your bridal party deserves a gift that they'll use well past the wedding, something that can begin to make up for all of your bridezilla moments — and there's no better option than beauty products. From luxurious skin-care sets to solo products that can be added to a curated gift box, these are the beauty presents that will win the hearts of your bride squad. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team.
