Deciding what to get the bride for her engagement party or bridal shower can be tricky. You want to get her something she’ll love, and that will help her as she begins this new chapter in her life.
Here are ten great gift ideas (plus a bonus #11!) that any bride would love to receive.
1. A planner or organizer
A bride has a lot of things to keep track of as she plans her wedding. A well-made planner or organizer will help her keep everything straight and ensure nothing falls through the cracks.
2. A nice piece of jewelry
An engagement ring is the most essential piece of jewelry a bride will get, but that doesn’t mean she won’t appreciate a lovely necklace, earrings, or bracelet from her loved ones. Here’s a bonus: choosing something that can be worn on her big day is always a great option.
3. Gift certificates to local vendors
If the bride is still in the early stages of wedding planning, gift certificates to local vendors (like a florist, bakery, or dress shop) can be a huge help. This will be one less thing she has to worry about!
4. Something for the honeymoon
Whether it’s a nice piece of luggage or a guidebook to help her plan her trip, anything that makes the honeymoon go more smoothly is sure to be appreciated.
5. A home décor item
If the couple is moving into a new home after the wedding, a stunning vase, picture frame, or dishtowels can help them start decorating their new place.
6. A cookbook
This is especially useful if the bride likes to cook, but isn’t quite sure where to start when it comes to making dinner for two.
7. A nice bottle of wine or champagne
This can be saved for a special occasion like their first anniversary or first holiday season as a married couple.
Every bride could use some pretty lingerie for her wedding night (and beyond!).
9. A spa day
Planning a wedding can be stressful! A relaxing spa day is a perfect way for the bride to unwind before she says, “I do.”
Sometimes it’s best to let the bride decide what she wants! Put some cash in a lovely card and let her decide what to choose.
