9-Piece Sonoma Wine & Cheese Tote | $115 on macys.com
Picnics are great, but let’s be honest, the best part is the wine and cheese. This cute bridesmaid gift comes with 9 different pieces in an easy-to-pack-and-carry tote. The set includes the tote, a cutting board, a cheese knife, a corkscrew, a bottle stopper, 2 napkins and 2 shatter-resistant stemless wine glasses. It’s insulated inside with 3 different compartments for wine, and 1 for food - now that’s a ratio we can get behind.
Sparkling Rosé Wine Making Kit | $70 on uncommongoods.com
The ultimate DIY. Sparkling pink bubbles make anything more festive, and we bet they taste even better when you put in the TLC to make them yourself. It takes 6 weeks for each batch to be ready, so why not mix them up with your bridesmaids at the bachelorette party, and then toast with your extra special rosé concoctions on your wedding day? Ahh, bonding.

This amazing Kate Spade charging wristlet charges your phone from the safety of your wrist so you don’t accidentally leave it plugged in to a random charger behind the bar.

Gold Rimmed Purple Agate Coasters | Set of 4 for $120 on mapletondrive.com
For the stylish bridal party who always appreciates wine and fine cocktails, but never appreciates water rings. These are Grade “A” Agate coasters.
