Your Charlottesville wedding wouldn't be complete without your maid of honor. She’s that girlfriend that has been with you through thick and thin, through all the ups and downs of life. She's also been your go-to confidante and therapist at those times that wedding planning may have seemed like an unsurmountable task. You trust her opinion more than you trust your mom's—or your wedding planner's, for that matter!—because she's just that special to you. While all of your bridesmaids deserve a little something that says "thanks for being here," we suggest you give this extra-special friend an extra-special maid of honor gift that will show her just how much she means to you.

But, what should that extra-special maid of honor gift be? That's where we come in. From fun accessories to personalized pampering, here’s a round-up of maid of honor gift ideas that all come in at just around $100. Because, hey! We've got a wedding budget to stick to!

Something That Sparkles

Jewelry is a great go-to maid of honor gift for any girl, but oftentimes is accompanied by a bit of sticker shock. Two great affordable options that have the wow factor?

Tiffany’s Monogrammed Pendant

Getting a Tiffany & Co. gift bag means serious business, and you can surprise your maid of honor with a gorgeous initialed charm for under $100. Delicate and customizable, a Tiffany's pendant is sure to be something she treasures forever.

Kate Spade Maid of Honor Bangle

Stunning worn alone or stacked with other bracelets, the Kate Spade Maid of Honor Bangle is to die for. On the inside of the bracelet is inscribed “You and Me.” On the outside in cursive is inscribed, “the hocus to my pocus, the lovey to my dovey, the hoity to my toity, the riff to my raff, the helter to my skelter.” How cute is that?!

Looking to add a little something extra?

Check out the cute jewelry boxes at West Elm. Not only can they hold her new jewels, but they are a stylish addition to her vanity.

For Your Foodie Friend

If your maid of honor is known for whipping up the best brunches or baking a killer cake, the Rifle Paper Co. recipe box filled with recipe cards is the way to go. The recipe cards are organized by course, so she can stay organized in style.

The Artistic Approach

For the maid of honor that enjoys art galleries or interior design, giving framed prints or interesting home accessories make for great gifts.

Prints from artists like Lulie Wallace & Teil Duncan are sure to catch her eye. Or, Jonathan Adler's cute ice cream cone flower vases are sure to be the star of her summer table.

A Little TLC

Your maid of honor might be getting her hair and nails done on your big day, but you want to make sure she gets the relaxation and pampering she deserves when her MOH duties are done. Massages and facials are great gifts and will work nicely with a budget, or give her a Spafinder gift card. With a Spafinder gift card, your maid of honor can choose the spa and wellness treatment she wants — including anything from Pilates to meditation to aromatherapy classes.

For the Girl on the Go

There are tons of fun maid of honor gifts ideas under $100 for those who live a really active lifestyle. If your maid of honor is into yoga, check out the gorgeous yoga mats at Anthropologie.

Or, if your maid of honor is always listening to music or looking for the next concert, stylish headphones are sure to turn heads while also providing really great sound quality. These headphones are a bit over $100, but, rose gold details? Totally worth it.

Cute Carryalls

You might be giving all your bridesmaids some cute bags, but for a special maid of honor gift, have hers stand out.

Proud Mary bags are beautiful and are created by global textile artisans that receive fair wages for their work. A stylish bag with philanthropic benefits? We’re sold.

Or, give your lucky lady a Scout bag. Tote, cosmetic case, or cooler, you can pick the pattern and colors for your Scout bag to make it personal.

    It's easy to get swept up in the hustle and bustle of planning Charlottesville weddings, but stopping to say "thank you" with a special gift for your maid of honor is something that she will never forget.
