We’re nearing the end of spring and heading into summer, which only means one thing: It’s wedding season.

This year there’s even more hubbub than usual, though; it seems the whole world has wedding fever. And that’s thanks to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

The LA native will wed Britain’s sixth-in-line-to-the-throne on Saturday, May 19. While we do have a bit of royal wedding fever, we also wanted to find ways to bring a little bit of that royalty down to earth.

Here, we’ve rounded up 10 items inspired by the royal wedding. They would be perfect bridesmaid gifts—or gifts just because! Click through the gallery below, and let us know what your favorite wedding gift is.

Floral clutch

One can never have too many purses. It’s easy to imagine this floral clutch from Milisente (available in seven different colors) being carried by a royal wedding guest—and it’s bound to be a hit with all your bridesmaids. Purchase on Amazon for $22.99.

Vintage handkerchiefs

Handkerchiefs are an environmentally conscious choice, and these vintage pieces are practically works of art. Your bridesmaids will cherish these handmaid treasures and always be reminded of your special day. Purchase a mixed pack from Falling Coconuts on Etsy for $42.

Royal sweets

Who doesn’t love a good sweet treat? Harry & David partnered with Carolyn Robb, a former personal chef to the British Royal family, to cook up gourmet goods with a touch of Royal. These rocky road squares are dark and white chocolate nuggets stuffed with dried apricots and cranberries, pistachios and mini marshmallows atop a traditional English biscuit crust. It’s a delicacy fit for a princess—or your bride tribe. Purchase on Harry & David, starting early June, and see what Royal Family favorites are available right now.

Personalized notecards

Meghan’s personal correspondence is sure to be on the finest stationary known to England. Give your bridesmaids the best—without breaking the bank. A Thing Created customizes notecards; find the right design to portray your friend, then send information about her name, hair color, and skin tone. Purchase on Etsy starting at $19.

Silk floral robe

Robes are always a great bridesmaid gift—not only can you all wear them when prepping for the wedding (and take adorable getting-ready photos!), but your friends can also wear them for years to come. We could definitely see Meghan and her bridal party wearing this elegant floral print. Purchase on Nordstrom for $58.

St. Germain elderflower liqueur

There’s really nothing better than a wedding cake, and the cake that Meghan and Harry chose has us even more upset we don’t have an invite. Diverging from the traditional fruit cake, the young couple have decided to serve lemon elderflower cake. This bottle of St. Germain elderflower liqueur will spice up your friends’ cocktails—and be a lovely addition to her bar cart. Purchase on Drizly starting at $24.99.

Radiant skincare set

Eve Lom started more than 25 years ago with the goal to create the perfect cleanser. They’ve since expanded to all types of facial products and become a well-known, and luxurious, skincare brand. This Radiant skincare set features their cleanser, a brightening cream, a rescue mask, a kiss mix (a lip/cheek tint) and a cloth—along with a cloth zippered bag. It provides all the tools for a skin refresh, which your bridesmaids will definitely need after your big day. Purchase on Bergdorf Goodman for $65.

Tea set

Yes, this is a French tea set and the Royal wedding is British. But with a beautiful tea cup and saucer design like this, it’s fit for any kind of royalty. The Carried Away by French Earl Grey set comes with limited edition fine bone china cup and saucer, a mesh ball infuser and T2’s French Earl Grey looseleaf tea. Purchase on T2 for $40.

Personalized necklace

Personalized gifts always show a touch more thoughtfulness—and this necklace is no different. It’s dainty and elegant, which is just what you’d expect to see around the neck of a princess. From The Golden Beverly, it comes in sterling silver, yellow gold-plated or rose gold-plated and is available in a variety of sizes. Purchase on Etsy for $33.

Aromatic candle

Your bridesmaid is sure to feel loved when gifted this Rose Gold candle from Maya Brenner. It’s lightly rose scented with all natural oils and handpoured in Los Angeles, California—Meghan’s hometown! Purchase from Domino for $47.99.
