Bridal shower gifts run the gamut from household wares to silky bathrobes. Due to the nature of the event being celebrated, these gifts lean toward personalized and intimate. This is true even of the more practical gifts that some brides receive. When planning the bridal shower you want to give her the most perfect bridal shower gift. If you’re looking for gifts for a special bride-to-be in your life, here are six ideas for unique bridal shower gifts that she is bound to love.
14 Bridal Shower Gifts
1. Wedding Dress Sketch
Her wedding dress is the most magical dress she will ever wear. Have a Dreamlines artist create a sketch of her wedding dress. It is the most personalized and intimate gift she will receive. A photo of her wearing the dress in the dressing room at the bridal shop or even a link to the dress designers is all that is needed to create the perfect bridal shower gift. It is a great gift from the matron of honor, the whole wedding party, the Mom of the bride or groom, or even shared with the groom to give this as a wedding day gift. The bridal shower gift makes for a great piece at the reception for the wedding guests to sign, as their guestbook.
2. Luggage Tags
These beautiful upscale luggage tags in vegan leather is a perfect fit with her luggage. A lovely accessory for their honeymoon. It can be personalized with their pins or with their monogram collection. The luggage tags are available in a latte, which is a light cloud shade, and as a cafe rose, which is is a dusty pink nude shade.
3. Luggage Set
Some occasions just beg for the gift of luggage. A wedding and the subsequent honeymoon count as one such occasion. Luggage is an item that nearly all people use. However, if they don’t travel a lot, it may be an item they won’t buy for themselves. Aside from that, gifting the bride a set of luggage means that her spouse gets a bag or two, also. It’s a sweet, yet subtle way to celebrate the beginning of their lives as a couple.
4. Custom Wedding Dress Hangers
These beauties decorate the bride’s closet with love long after the “I dos” have been spoken. Personalized wedding dress hangers usually feature the bride’s name or new last name in fancy script. However, many of them have additional decorative elements. For example, some of them resemble the dress itself. Fancy, yet delicate laces with intricate patterns, tiny beads and pearls, pretty bows and even sequins may beautify this gift. Bridal gift-givers who want to go the extra mile with this gift can give the bride a hanger for the wedding dress and a hanger for the honeymoon outfit as well.
5. A Cooking-for-Two Cookbook – Bridal Shower Gift
Cooking together is a way to bond. However, for the maybe inexperienced cook, cooking for a small number of people – two in this case – presents challenges. It’s sometimes difficult to get the portions right because many cookbook writers create recipes with families in mind. You can help the bride-to-be solve that problem by giving her a cookbook for two. To add a little extra, make a basket filled with the ingredients for one of the recipes in the book. Tuck the ingredients and the book into the basket and top with a bow.
6. Monogrammed Towels and Bathrobes – Wedding Shower Gifts
If you know what color the couple’s bathroom is going to be, give them a set of monogrammed towels and matching terry cloth robes. These classic gifts never go out of style, and as the luggage set, they’re often gifts that a couple won’t buy for themselves.
7. Personalize Wine – Best Bridal Shower Gifts
At weddings, wine and champagne add a touch of class to the celebration. Gifting the bride some wines with special wedding labels is a fun way to contribute to the toasting ceremony. If you want to go one step further, find a labeling company that makes wine labels for the big milestones, like first Christmas, first anniversary, and first baby, too. Even find a company that offers marriage milestone wine or a wine club.
