She’s been there for you through thick and thin, through the happy times and the heartaches. And now she’s making the ultimate show of support as you say “I do” by standing up on your behalf as maid of honor. And although there’s no question she’s thrilled to play the part, the once-in-a-lifetime role necessitates an extra-special show of your appreciation.
Whether she’s your sister or your best friend from back in the day, give your maid of honor a thoughtful token that she’ll continue to enjoy after the wedding’s over. Here are 10 gifts your maid of honor will actually love.

She loves serving up drinks at home, but even when she’s not mixing cocktails, she’ll be proud to keep this gorgeous gold shaker on display. (If you want to go all out, scoop up the matching strainer and spoon, too.)
For the World Traveler

She moved to Paris three years ago, but that didn’t stop her from jetting in to take part in your wedding festivities. This pale-pink passport wallet will make her think of you with every new stamp she collects. (Add her monogram to make it extra special.)
For the Home Chef

Salt is said to be one of—if not the—most essential cooking ingredients out there. Gift your gourmand best gal pal with a set of four fancy gourmet salts that’ll help kick her cooking up a notch and make her feel like the serious chef she is.
For the Design Maven

Your design-loving MOH isn’t afraid to splash a little (or, should we say big?) pattern around her envy-inducing abode. Surprise her with a bold palm-printed pillow (or two) that’ll look perfectly at home on her Pinterest-worthy sofa.
For the Spa Junkie

We can’t get enough of Lather’s luscious-smelling, skin-smoothing bath and body products, and we’re certain your MOH will melt when she slathers on this eco-conscious brand’s foaming body scrub and bamboo creme moisturizer, just two pampering products found in this Ultimate Spa set.
For the Girl with a Green Thumb

Your garden-loving girlfriend will enjoy arranging succulents, miniature cacti, and quartz crystals in this super-stylish geometric terrarium. The best part? No bulky boots or gloves required.

For the Fashionista

Good things come in small packages, and this tiny tome is packed with fashion and style advice straight from one of the industry’s most legendary designers. If she likes her style with a heaping side of celebrity, she’ll also love keeping “Mario Testino: Portraits” on display in her oh-so-chic living room.
For the Bookworm

Nothing will bring a smile to the face of your book-addicted best friend quite like a quirky set of bookends that pays homage to the beach. These playful but sophisticated brass-and-marble pelicans will help keep her favorite titles in order all day long.
For the Beach Bunny

Give your favorite girl a bold, bright blanket to sprawl out on when she hits the beach. We love supermodel Liya Kebede’s label, lemlem, for its colorful, made-in-Ethiopia blankets, which are awash in stripes, neutrals, and playful pops of neon.
