Tumblers are a popular bridal party gift, as you can get them personalized and in your wedding colors, and they come in very handy on the day of the wedding, when you and the rest of the bridal party might need to keep some extra water handy (like during a summertime, outdoor wedding) or if you’d rather just keep a more adult beverage at hand as you celebrate the day away.

It’s just the right size for displaying her pint-sized dress.
Gifts That Go Beyond the Wedding
However, not all of your bridal party gifts need to be wedding themed. Instead, you can pick out unique gifts that are just a good fit for the individual — no wedding colors, themes or declarations of their big day role required.
For something that she’s sure to love and that’s not at all about the wedding, look to one of these more practical flower girl gifts.

How to Pick the Perfect Flower Girl Thank You Gift (Plus More Flower Girl Tips)
Did you spy a perfect gift idea among our top suggested selections? Before you make your final decision, keep a few of these tips in mind.
Pick a personalized gift, not just something generic.
No, we’re not talking about going with a personalized purse or anything else embroidered with your flower girl’s name. Instead, you should pick a sweet gift that’s personalized to your flower girl’s likes, dislikes and tastes. If your flower girl isn’t the frilly, feminine type, don’t overload her with flower crowns and glitter; that’s a sure way to ensure she’s not a big fan of participating in your wedding. Likewise, if your flower girl is aging out of the whole dolls and stuffed animals thing, stay clear of those types of gifts.
Of course, sometimes, you might not know your flower girl all that well (maybe they’re more of a distant relative or they’re from the groom’s side of the family) and that’s okay. Talk to her parents ahead of time to get a sense of what she might love to receive.
Don’t exclude your flower girl.
While it can be easy to exclude your flower girl from your special day and the rest of the bridal party simply due to age, especially if you’re not close to her, make an effort to ensure she doesn’t feel left out.
No, you don’t need to invite her over early to get ready with all of the bridesmaids, if you don’t want to, and, no, she won’t be showing up at the bachelorette shindig, but if you’re doing matching gifts for the entire bridal party, make sure she gets one. Include her in girls-only photos. Make your flower girl feel special.
Keep Mom and/or Dad informed.
To make the flower girl process as smooth and stress-free as possible (because who needs more stress on their wedding day, right?), make sure you communicate absolutely everything with the flower girl’s parents, from what gift you’re planning on giving her, and when, to the day’s itinerary, to what’s expected of the flower girl.
They’ll know her needs and preferences better than you, and will be able to flag anything that might interrupt with nap time, cause a meltdown or just generally not be a good fit.
Flower Girl FAQs
TL;DR? We’ve still got you covered, answering all your need-to-know flower girl questions.
Who is the flower girl?
The flower girl is typically a young (think elementary age or younger) girl on either side of the bridal party, who’s enlisted to toss flowers before the bride walks down the aisle. If there’s no one in your family who might be a suitable pick for this role, or if you just don’t want a large bridal party, there’s no need to have a flower girl, though it is tradition.
Do you have to buy a gift for the flower girl?
A flower girl gift is a very kind gesture. Yes, while you may have purchased the flower girl’s dress and/or are paying for her hair styling (if you’re requesting a more formal hairdo for your flower girl, to match the rest of the bridal party’s look), it’s still considered polite to include your flower girl in the rest of the bridal party’s gift giving. Just as you would give your bridesmaids or groomsmen gifts to thank them for being a part of your big day, you should do the same for your flower girl and ring bearer.
How much should you spend on a flower girl gift or ring bearer gift?
You can spend slightly less on a flower girl gift or ring bearer gift than you might on a bridesmaid gift. A gift under $50 is entirely appropriate.
When do you give a flower girl a gift?
Many couples give the flower girl a gift both when they ask her to be the flower girl (such as they might give a bridesmaid proposal gift when asking the bridal parties to participate in the wedding) and at the wedding itself. However, if you don’t think your wedding budget can quite permit two gifts for every member of the wedding party, you can go with just the latter.
What events should I invite my flower girl to?
Invite the flower girl to the bridal shower, rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, and, possibly, the day-of gatherings of the bridal party for getting ready together, etc. If you’re having a child-free reception, some will say that you still must absolutely invite the flower girl, as she’s part of the wedding party. However, she might not exactly have fun at an adults-only event, depending on her age. You may want to consider arranging for babysitting services, so the parents can still attend the wedding, but the flower girl can do something a little more fun.
Who pays for the flower girl’s dress?
Either the parents of the flower girl or the bride and groom pay for the flower girls’ dress. However, even if the parents of the flower girl pay for the dress, the bride and groom are still involved with the shopping process and help pick a dress that falls within the parents’ budget.
Can you have more than one flower girl?
Yes! You can definitely have more than one flower girl. If you just have two, they can both throw flower petals, but if you have more than two flower girls, consider giving the others extra jobs, such as carrying the bridal train.
May She Live Happily Ever After
The hope and joy that children bring to a wedding is something you can’t put a price tag on, even for a wedding day gift. But a sweet present from you will make your flower girl feel extra special and get her excited about all the festivities.
Congratulations on your special day, and here’s hoping that you and your flower girl live happily ever after!
