ENGRAVED JEWELRY BOX
Jillian Ruffo, Associate Beauty Editor: I was only 9 years old when I was a junior bridesmaid in my sister's wedding, and I've kept her bridesmaid gift -- an engraved jewelry box -- since that day. Each box was customized with our names and a special note, and they each held the matching bracelets that we all wore down the aisle.

Colleen Kratofil, Style Writer-Reporter: My friend Gina was very excited to recieve a pair of Toms to wear during the reception when she was a bridesmaid. It's a genius idea because as the bride, it keeps your friends happy and ensures they can be at-the-ready to assist you all night long.

L.L. BEAN PLAID SHIRT
Lindy Segal, Style Social Editor: My friends John and Bethany are having a December wedding, and Bethany marked the occasion by giving her bridesmaids a red flannel (to which she added their initials at an embroidery shop — cute, right?). She also got herself one in white, because duh.

PERSONAL PICTURE FRAME
Kaitlyn Frey, Style & Beauty Assistant: I've yet to be a bridesmaid, but when I think of something I'd like to be gifted by a future bride, I'd want something personal, but not cheesy. I stumbled upon this beautiful Jonathan Adler frame, and imagined how special it would be to recieve it filled with a photo of me and the bride inside and a handwritten note on the back.

Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: One of my best friends from college was very organized with her bridesmaids' gift bags, which included everything from breath mints to feet-numbing spray. But the most memorable gift was this floral robe that we all wore in the getting ready photos. It's a lightweight kimono-style robe, and I still wear it all the time.

Kami Phillips, E-Commerce Editor: My best friend's fall wedding was classically beautiful and her choice of black bridesmaids dresses had that Old Hollywood glamour to them - especially when we all wore the gorgeous pearl earrings that she gifted each of us. Now, whenever I wear them I think of her and how special it was to be by her side on her big day!

TORY BURCH STUDS
Alex Apatoff, Deputy Style Director: I've liked all of my bridesmaid gifts, but I've only been in a handful of weddings. I called in the big guns - friends who have been essentially professional bridesmaids - to hear what they've loved. My cousin in Dallas said she still gets a ton of use out of these Tory Burch studs.
