Why Bath Bombs Make the Best Gifts for Bridesmaids

Why Bath Bombs Make the Best Gifts for Bridesmaids

Your bride tribe is there to support you from the moment you get engaged, through all of the madness of planning a wedding, and all the way to the altar on your big day. You’ll definitely want to say thank you to them for standing by you through what is probably the most memorable time of your life. 

A thoughtful gift that will help them feel and look their best is an absolute must for any bride’s squad! We think bath bombs (especially these ones with a ring inside!) make the best gift choice for brides wanting to spoil their bridesmaids and we’ll tell you why!

A Ring for You, a Ring for Them

Jewelry is one of the most popular choices for bridesmaid gifts. Why not put a fresh spin on this classic gift by upgrading to a bath bomb that has a ring inside of it? It seems only fitting—a ring for the bride and some rings for her bridesmaids! 

They’ll be surprised and excited to see what kind of unique ring they get. Just select the size of the ring when purchasing the bath bomb and each one will come with a different, super cute style inside of it.

The rings inside of our bath bombs are custom-made by our in-house jeweler. You won’t find these rings anywhere else. When you gift your bridesmaids with the rings from our bath bombs, you’ll be getting them a one-of-a-kind present that will help them remember this special time.

Not Your Average Bath Bomb

Our ring bath bombs weigh in at a sturdy six ounces, which is heavier and denser than most others on the market. The size and weight of our bath bombs make them feel luxurious in your hand, which is just another reason that they make an impressive gift. Your bridesmaids will be so excited to try them out in their next bath!

Is There Anything More Fun Than Bath Bombs?

What’s better than watching a bath bomb “explode” as it dissolves under the running water of a warm bath? We can’t think of anything else we’d rather do. Bath bombs are a fun experience whether it’s your first time using one or if you’re a bath bomb veteran—it just doesn’t get old watching the colorful burst of bubbles in your bathtub. Bath bombs are the perfect gift for any age or personality type, loved by anyone who enjoys relaxing (AKA everyone!).

Bath Bombs Make a Luxurious Addition to Any Gift Basket

Bath bombs make a great gift on their own or as an addition inside of a bridesmaid’s gift basket. Go for a spa-themed gift package and add in all of your favorite self-care products. Throw in lotions, lip products, face masks, and essential oils. The bath bomb will stand out amongst the other items with its unique shape and enticing scent. Try wrapping the bath bomb in cellophane to protect it from the other items in the gift basket and to add an overall beautiful aesthetic to the package.

Relax and Unwind Before the Big Day

Being a bride is stressful, but being a bridesmaid is stressful too! Bath bombs infused with soothing scents from essential oils will help them relax before your big day. Aromatherapy has been used for centuries to relieve anxiety and stress. Get your bridesmaids some bath bombs that are infused with relaxing essential oils to help them unwind and show up feeling (and looking) their best on your wedding day. 

Lavender Oil

Lavender is one of those most popular choices when looking for a relaxing and soothing essential oil. A lavender-infused bath bomb will bring a burst of zen to a warm bath with its lovely herbal scent. 

Studies show that lavender has calming effects on the nervous system and can help relieve symptoms of anxiety. This makes it the perfect addition to any bath bomb being gifted to your bride squad. The more relaxed they are, the more they can help you relax on your big day!

Eucalyptus Oil

The queen of all spa scents is eucalyptus. When looking for a relaxing bath experience, eucalyptus essential oil is guaranteed to deliver. This scent is often found wafting through the hallways of day spas and massage parlors because of its soothing effects. 

Eucalyptus essential oil also pairs nicely with other relaxing scents like lavender, peppermint, or jasmine. You can’t go wrong with giving your bridesmaids a bath bomb bursting with the amazing aroma of eucalyptus. 

Jasmine Oil

Jasmine essential oil is a lovely floral scent that is known to have mood-boosting effects. It is a light, floral scent that blends perfectly with oils like lavender and eucalyptus for an indulgent bath time experience full of relaxation. 

Lemon Oil

When you think of lemon essential oil, you may initially think of energy and rejuvenation. However, studies have shown that lemon oil actually has de-stressing effects. Plus, it smells amazing! The citrus scent of lemon mixes well with other relaxing oils like eucalyptus and lavender. It really adds to the stress-relieving experience!

Rose Oil

Rose oil is commonly used in cosmetics and skin care for its antioxidants and soothing properties. It is known to aid in calming the skin and help with skin healing. The floral scent of rose mixes well with other floral scents for a truly luxurious aromatherapy experience that will ease anxiety and boost any bath soak.

Ingredients To Help Them Glow Alongside You

Everyone knows the bride has her wedding day glow, but what about your bridesmaids? They’ll need some skin nourishment to keep up with you. Bath bombs are great gifts because they are fun to use, smell amazing, and have the calming ingredients needed to help your bridesmaids unwind in the tub. 

They’re also good for the skin too! In addition to the therapeutic grade essential oils that are used in Bubbly Belle’s products, we’ve packed in even more skin-nourishing goodness from other ingredients. 

Our bath bombs have the best, high-quality ingredients your skin craves. Check out some of these moisturizing and soothing elements that you can find in our bestselling products. These powerhouse ingredients are used to help detox your skin, replenish it with moisture and vitamins, and leave you glowing.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a natural emollient that’s easily absorbed by the skin. The fatty acids contained in coconut oil are what help it do such a great job at repairing your skin’s moisture barrier, allowing it to replenish your skin and help fight the signs of aging. Coconut oil makes for the perfect, moisturizing addition to any bath bomb and will add a lovely creaminess to your bathwater once the “bomb” dissolves. 

Epsom Salt

You have probably heard a doctor or trainer recommend soaking in an Epsom salt bath when you have an injury. There is a reason for that! Epsom salt is also known as magnesium sulfate. It’s much different than the salt on your kitchen table but named for having a similar chemical structure. 

Magnesium sulfate can be absorbed into your skin when you mix it into a warm bath, reducing swelling and relaxing your muscles. Epsom salt is famous for treating joint pain, bug bites, and other types of inflammation. It’s an amazing ingredient you’ll want in your bath bomb!

Kaolin Clay

Kaolin clay is a natural, cosmetic clay that helps absorb impurities from the skin. It’s a mild and pH-balanced element that is appropriate for all skin types. Since it’s so great at removing toxins, oils, and impurities from your skin, kaolin clay is able to improve blemishes and exfoliate the top layer of your skin. 

Handmade and Affordable

The final reason we think our bath bombs make the best bridesmaid gift is because they’re handmade, and at a great price! Handmade gifts always come across as a more thoughtful and unique present that your girls won’t forget any time soon. 

Remember, you’re getting them both a surprise ring and a vegan, handmade bath bomb bursting with amazing, natural scents. It’s two gifts in one! Plus, you can get them at an even better price if you subscribe or if you purchase a bundle. Saving every dollar counts when you’re paying for a wedding!


The best gift a bride can get for her bridesmaids is a handmade bath bomb with a surprise ring inside of it! It’s a new twist on a classic gift, plus it will help them prepare for your big day with a little self-care. 

Show your bridesmaids that you appreciate them by gifting them with an all-natural and special gift—one like they’ve never seen before! They’ll be thankful for both the unique ring and their at-home aromatherapy experience from our essential oils bursting into their bathtub. Your girls will show up calm and glowing, ready to stand by your side on your most important day!
