When a couple gets married, they typically ask their best friends or closest family members to stand up as their best man and maid of honour. The people in these roles typically host bridal showers or engagement celebrations and plan bachelor and hen parties. Thank your best man or maid of honour with a gift that is fitting to the time and energy put into the job.

Personalised Bag

Give your maid of honour a personalised make-up and toiletry bag. Choose a small canvas bag that has several compartments and have it monogrammed with her name or initials. Fill the bag with lip gloss, moisturising lotion, nail polish and other items she might enjoy. For a best man, choose a personalised shaving kit. Select a canvas or leather bag and have it monogrammed with his initials. Place a few items in the bag, such as shaving cream and cologne.


If your best man or maid of honour is devoted to philanthropic causes, make a donation to their favourite charity instead of a traditional gift. For example, if your maid of honour is supportive of a cancer research charity, make a generous donation in her name as a thank you. Maybe your best man is active in a local youth centre. Make a donation in his name or volunteer to help out with a program.

Hobby Gift Basket

Create a gift basket that complements the maid of honour or best man's hobby. This gift will show your friend that you truly care about his or her interests. For example, if your maid of honour enjoys creating scrapbooks, fill a basket with a new scrapbook, extra pages, acid-free construction paper, markers, stickers, a glue stick and other items. Maybe your best man enjoys golfing on the weekends. Assemble a gift basket filled with golf balls, tees, ball markers, a golfing glove and a gift card for a round at his favourite course.


Rather than giving your maid of honour or best man a traditional gift, give them an experience instead. For example, give your maid of honour two tickets to a play, the ballet or the opera. Give your best man tickets to a game played by his favourite team. Tickets to a concert featuring their favourite band or singer is another possibility.
