Here’s another installment in my roundup of favorite wedding gift ideas… this time for a bridal shower! I adore attending (and planning!) bridal showers, and it’s so incredibly special to have the bride surrounded by those who have touched her life the most. What a celebration! Giving gifts from the heart is the best, and I simply adore showering the bride in love, laughter, community… and fabulous, touching, personalized gifts as her big day approaches!
Favorite Bridal Shower Gifts:
- Wedding Vows gold foil print (frame it!) from the Southern Weddings Shop
- A personalized wedding dress hanger
- A custom photobook of the couple’s engagement pictures
- A gold or silver necklace with her new monogram
- Calligraphied Mr. and Mrs. coffee mugs
- Hand-painted monogram wooden tray
- Canvas print of a favorite engagement picture of the couple
- A massage/spa gift certificate to alleviate any pre-wedding stress or jitters
- Monogrammed bathing suit for her honeymoon
- Personalized beach towels for the couple’s honeymoon
- Certificate of Marriage for the couple to fill out, from the Southern Weddings Shop
- A custom ring bearer bowl
- A beautiful customized clutch in her wedding colors for the wedding day
- Letterpress stationery with her new name or mongram
- If you know the couple’s favorite Bible verse(s) or quotes, use that as inspiration for a creative gift – wall art, an art print, etc
- Pre-planned and pre-paid Date Nights for the couple for a night or two leading up to the wedding (a personal favorite gift idea of mine!)
- Offer any services (calligraphy wedding invitations, singing during the ceremony, making favors, etc) as your gift!
- Monogrammed anything!
- If you feel compelled to buy something off the couple’s registry, pick a gift or a few that really speak to your relationship with her! Do you have a lot of wine nights together? Buy those wine glasses, a cheese board, and include a bottle of your favorite wine or prosecco to jazz it up!
