Bridal showers are fun and exciting. They are meant to envelop the recipient with love, caring, and of course, lots of gifts! It’s an amazing time for the bride-to-be. Planning the wedding with the help of family and friends and relishing in the anticipation of the special day is a momentous time in life.
As a valued guest, choosing just the right shower gift can be nerve-wracking. You don’t have to stress out to find an easy and impressive gift to give the prospective bride!
This curated list of shower gifts for the lovely and glowing bride-to-be are designed to add the “wow” factor she deserves:
A Pendant Necklace
Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but chances are you know your friend well. If you want a gift that’s both easy and impressive, consider buying the about-to-be-wed person a pendant necklace that suits their style.
Bold and sassy, or simple and elegant? You won’t go wrong with this gift as they will be able to wear it on their honeymoon and beyond – as they see fit!
Mr. & Mrs. Champagne Glasses
There’s going to be a lot of celebrating in the new couple’s future! Help them do it in style with classy, engraved champagne glasses that suit them to a T. They can use them on the wedding day, or anniversaries, and any day that calls for a taste of the bubbly.
A Travel Jewelry Organizer
If you’re like most people, when you travel, taking your jewelry is an iffy proposition. What do you store it in? Should it be bubble wrapped for protection? Should it be worn to be safe? Give the gift of a travel jewelry organizer that answers all of those questions for them – and does it fashionably!
If you truly want an impressive, easier than anything gift, send the bride-to-be an eGift card. They can be purchased online and sent instantaneously to the recipient’s text or email. You can choose from a vast array of retailers to give them the gift they really, truly desire.
A Spa Experience
It might be a bit costly to send the bride-to-be to the spa for the entire day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t send her (and him!) for a spa experience. Think manicures, pedicures, massages, aromatherapy, and more.
Planning a wedding is stressful. Finding time to de-stress can be all but impossible. Give them a reason to find the time to be immersed in pampering, by offering the spa experience to them prepaid!
A Couple’s Cookbook
Take advantage of the positive attitudes toward individual and couple’s enrichment and give them a gift that is sure to get marked up and a little sloppy with ingredients. There are a number of choices offered with varying features like vegan dishes, diet trends, and ways to be romantic. This list is filled with wondrous choices:
- Healthier Together by Liz Moody
- The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook by the Editors at America’s Test Kitchen
- Eat with Us by Philip Lago and Mystique Mattai
- The Couple’s Cookbook by Cole and Kiera Stipovich
Wedding Survival Kit
What could go wrong on the wedding day? Virtually anything. Things certainly do go wrong, sometimes!
Create a wedding survival kit for the bride to be that includes items like extra pantyhose, bobby pins, safety pins, Band-Aids, carb-y snacks, a mini needle and thread set, and anything else that you think might make the day a bit easier and allow her to feel relaxed.
If you are close enough to her to know her size and her tastes, the gift of lingerie at the bridal shower is a time-honored tradition. If she is modest, consider a simple chemise. If she is extroverted and a bit wild; go for lingerie that reflects her personality!
Nothing screams luxury like wrapping your feet in cushiony softness. The bride-to-be can wear them on the day of the wedding, between the time when she wakes up until she slips on her wedding heels, and every day after that when she wants to remind herself, “Hey, I’m worth it!”
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a wine rack that doesn’t innately look elegant and classy. You can choose to get one that is personalized or go with the simple cherry wood or wrought iron styles. Either way, wine racks are created to showcase wine, so while you’re at it, why not throw in a bottle or two of Cabernet and Chardonnay!
With so many bridal showers taking place it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with gift choices. But it doesn’t have to be hard! If you’re looking for a gift that is easy and yet still impressive, remember that it can be as easy as 1-2-3 with a couple of clicks of the mouse, and you’re all set.
