You’ve asked your best ladies to join you at the altar, now it’s time to pick the perfect, “Thank you!” present. Shop local–either in your hometown, or at your wedding destination–to support small business and make your gal pals feel extra special.

Jewelry has always been a fan favorite. We love how local artisans, like The Ropes and CHART metalworks take inspiration from the coast to create nautically chic pieces that your ladies will love.

Seeking something that will accessorize any style? Stop by your local jewelry shop for simple, yet elegant studs or charm necklaces–like this state necklace from D. Cole Jewelers.

Accessories are another great option for fashion-forward friends! Hit your local boutiques to find unique pieces, like bright wristlets made from marine-grade materials by Alaina Marie and cozy knit hats from Swans Island Company.

Brides have been embracing the goodie bag trend with full force. Custom canvas totes from Sea Bags would make the perfect base for a New England-themed gift pack stocked with more of your local favorites.

Remember to shop with your recipient in mind! If your friends aren’t the all about fashion,  treat them to a taste of your destination. A bottle of their favorite varietal from a nearby winery, like Cellardoor Winery, or olive oil from Fiore Olive Oils & Vinegars are sure to please every palate.

Last but not least: everyone loves to be pampered! Local beauty products are great for our skin, the environment and for small business prosperity. Seek out something like the Salt Cellar‘s salt scrubs that your friends will gladly unwind with after a weekend of wedding fun.
