The Shower

It’s the question of the hour at this time of year! What do I give as a gift at the bridal shower? We’ve heard this question more times than we can count, so to help everyone out, we’ve compiled a list of some favorite, unique gift ideas. Sure, you could always check out the couple’s registry to be safe. Giving a gift that both the bride and groom will love never hurts. But this is the bridal shower, so consider spoiling the bride a little bit on this day, and check out the registry when it comes wedding time (YES, you need to bring a gift to the wedding too!)

A Luxurious Mani/Pedi Gift Certificate

The bride is likely going to be getting one anyway, so it may as well be on you! This is a great gift because it will help the bride to feel extra pampered in the weeks leading up to the big day, and keep her looking polished (no pun intended) through the many wedding-related appearances she will likely be making. The same could be said for a massage or other spa treatment. Choose a local spa for an ultra-luxury experience, or if you’re unfamiliar with the area purchase a gift card from SpaFinder and she can choose the spa on her own!

Glass Photo Vase

You could personalize this item yourself with pictures of the engaged couple, or the bride and her girlfriends, before giving it to her, or let her personalize it herself with photos from the wedding. Either way this modern keepsake will be sure to remind her of special times and serves the dual purpose of a vase. Check out the photo vase pictured here at Beau-Coup.

Monogrammed Travel Pillow

Start the honeymoon off right with a luxurious satin travel-size pillow from Beau-Coup. Airplane pillows are gross, and we want to make sure the bride is well rested for her five days in Bora Bora! This pillow can be monogrammed with the bride’s name, and is available in many different colors (so you could even personalize those if you know her wedding colors or her favorites.)

Wedding Time Capsule

What a fun idea from Personalization Mall! This time capsule will store all sorts of memorabilia from the bride and groom’s big day, and imagine how fun it will be for them to open it at their anniversary several years later! Help them relive one of the most romantic days of their lives with this fun gift.

Wedding Day Survival Kit

We just so happen to have this fantastic bridal shower gift available through The Wedding Belle! This kit includes EVERYTHING the bridal party could need in case of emergency on the wedding day: safety pins, Altoids, band-aids, needle-and-thread, etc. Don’t leave the bride with anything to stress over. If she has this kit handy, she will have everything covered!

Chic and Luxurious Bathrobe

Another wonderful honeymoon accessory: Every bride wants to feel beautiful on her honeymoon, but wouldn’t it be nice for her to slip on a bathrobe and still feel sexy? With this designer bathrobe by Jonquil available at Bloomingdales, she will look and feel fabulous while relaxing in style. It’s light enough for even the most tropical of destinations!
