This set of mini candles by Diptyque is an indulgent gift for your bridesmaids. It includes three of the iconic Parisian company's best-smelling and diverse candles: Baies, a mix of roses and black currant; Figuier, a cozy fig wood; and Roses, the most natural (and light!) rose scent. As delectable as the candles are burning, they'll be just as appealing sitting atop any mantel. After all, the minimalist black-and-white design ensures they won't clash with the decor in any of your bridesmaids' abodes.

Your girls standing beside you on your big day may not be best friends with each other, but the one thing they have in common is you.

This gold bangle from Kate Spade says friendship in the most understated way. With friendship quips engraved in delicate cursive scroll, it would be the most appropriate bracelet for all of your bridesmaids to wear on the wedding day—and every day after that.

Sure, your bridesmaids might have drugstore nail polishes filling up every nook and cranny of their bathrooms, but chances are they don't have this Yves Saint Laurent set. It contains three classic, full-size shades: Rouge Pop Art (an orange red), Rouge Dada (a deep berry), and Fuchsia Intemporal (a dark pink). Because you're the bride, you can totally make them color-coordinate their nails on your big day. But let's be honest: Displaying the gorgeous bottles on their vanities might be just as fun as wearing them.
