It’s no easy task tracking down the best maid of honor gifts, but not to worry — we’ve done the hard work for you. Because we know planning a wedding is exhausting, and what bride has spare time to shop for gifts for your best gal? Between the guest list and the invitations and the dinner menu and the wedding dress and your future in-laws adding in their opinions (which nobody asked for) … need we go on, or is that list alone raising your heart rate?
That’s where your maid of honor comes in. Bless her. She calms you down when you’re stressing and takes to-dos off your plate, she takes charge of your bridal shower and throws you a bachelorette party with just the right amount of naughtiness. Maybe she’s your sister or maybe she’s the one who held your hair back on wild nights in college. No matter where or when you became BFFs, she deserves to feel special on your special day, too.
That’s why we’ve compiled 17 of the best maid of honor gifts, including ones especially for a sister and others that let you pop the “will you be my maid of honor?” question in an unforgettable way. So sit back, relax, scroll, and click “add to cart.” And because we’re so helpful, we’ll help you choose gifts for bridesmaids and mother of the bride gifts, too!
Best Maid Of Honor Gifts
Coffee tastes better in a personalized mug. That’s fact. Treat your MOH to this super special (and super worth the $12.50) coffee cup. In addition to adding your names and wedding date, you can also customize the bouquet color, the bridesmaid dress color, and the hair style and skin tone for both the bride and maid of honor. Cheers to that!
Some gifts are better off consumed, like a few bottles of the oh-so refreshing Born Rosé, named after the Born neighborhood of Barcelona. Choose from still, sparkling, or canned, or get a combo of all three. Not only is the rosé itself wildly delicious, crisp, and aromatic, but the bottle looks just as good as it tastes. Cheers to your special day and your special friendship!
After all the work your MOH has put into your wedding, she deserves to kick back and relax in a silky, sexy new robe, like this (super affordable!) floral design that comes in over a dozen colors. Another idea: You could gift a robe to each of your bridesmaids and yourself, and you can all wear them the morning of your Big Day to make for extra cute getting-ready photos.
Your maid of honor is going the lengths for you, so next time she goes the lengths – say, to Aruba – make sure her makeup is safe and organized with this sturdy, wipeable Mini See-All Vanity Case. It’s just big enough to fit all of the makeup essentials, so she can bring it while traveling or while you’re getting ready to go out for the night. (Because you can still do that after you’re married, you know.) Have it embroidered with her initials for an extra special touch.
Whether your MOH is the ultimate athlete or your gal pal is always sneaking bottles of wine to the park – or both! – this oversized and super cute water bottle with a built-in straw would be a sweet little gift for her. The 25-ounce capacity means you can fit a whole bottle of wine inside, which could come in handy on your big day when she wants a sip of some vino without ruining her lipstick. Hell, get one for yourself, too.
Your checklist for getting ready: Your dress, makings for mimosas, and these embroidered slippers. Gift one to your maid of honor, of course, and while you’re at it, snatch up a pair for your other bridesmaids, the mother of the bride, and yourself. They’re made of 100% cotton with a rubber sole and every time your MOH slips them on, she’ll be reminded of you and your special day.
When in doubt, candles are always a great gift. The L’or de Seraphine scents are ultra luxe – like this sage, cedarwood, and eucalyptus candle – and come in sophisticated containers that your maid of honor will love to show off in her house. Plus, every time she lights it she’ll remember how much you love her, and isn’t that the whole point?
Show your MOH that she’s really something special with a pair of these elegant drop earrings, with two geometric bronze pendants and a deep emerald green stone on top. They are handmade – and made to order! – by master artisans in Mexico City using fair trade practices, so you can feel good about this purchase. Plus, the little bit of glitz will give your maid of honor that extra oomph to any outfit, from a date to an interview to just another Zoom meeting.
For just a little something that will make her smile, gift your maid of honor these, well, maid of honor socks. At this price ($8!) you can add this to whatever else you were going to give her as thanks. Just be sure she wears them the morning of your wedding day because they’ll make for extra cute getting-ready photos.

Best Maid Of Honor Gifts For Your Sister

Best “Will You Be My Maid Of Honor?” Gifts
What she thinks is a normal wine and Real Housewives night will turn into happy tears real fast when your MOH-to-be sees this personalized – and hilarious – label on a bottle of rosé. The labels are printed on glossy sticker paper and come 4.25 “x 5.5”, which will fit most wine bottles vertically. As one reviewer said, “Literally the cutest thing ever! It was definitely the favorite part of my bridesmaid proposals! Super easy to peel the sticker off and place on the bottle. Shipping was fast also, so that was a plus!”
If your maid of honor is a Friends fanatic – who isn’t? – you simply have to get her one of these personalized “The One Where You’re My Maid of Honor” wine glasses to ask her the big question. Wine nights will be more fun when you can break out this glass and remember Uncle Steve embarrassing himself on the dance floor. Not to mention, that price!
