    Does the maid of honor give a gift?

    Being the maid of honor isn’t just a title; it’s a chance to celebrate and honor your bestie as she embarks on this new chapter in life! While you’ll be the superstar behind the bridal shower and bachelorette bash, why not add a cherry on top with an extra-special gift?

    Whether you opt for a touching personalized photo album or a super-useful gift card to her go-to store, make sure it comes straight from the heart. It’s your golden moment to tell the bride how much she means to you! So, seize the opportunity to shower the bride with love and heartfelt gratitude through a meticulously chosen gift!

    How much should you spend on a Maid of Honor gift?

    The amount you spend on a Maid of Honor gift depends on your budget and what feels appropriate for your relationship with her. While there’s no hard and fast rule, it’s generally a good idea to spend a bit more on your Maid of Honor gift than you would on gifts for the other members of your bridal party.

    You might consider something between $50 and $150, depending on your financial situation and the level of closeness you share with your Maid of Honor. Ultimately, the most important thing is to choose a gift that is thoughtful and meaningful to her, and that shows your appreciation for her support throughout the wedding planning process.
