Wedding time is a frantic time for the bride. With just a few days left for her fairytale wedding she’s bound to feel jittery. This is where the shower rescues her for atleast a day and pampers her with lots of love and gifts galore. Now gift giving may be the part of any other celebration but for the bridal shower the gift giving is the reason of hosting the event in the first place.
I have been to a few bridal showers myself and have concluded that gift giving might not always be expensive but with great imagination and a little spared time you will successfully have a lovely gift for the bride-to-be.
Okay the first point to remember is that the since all the guests at the shower are also invited to the wedding as well where you’ll need a wedding gift too, the gift for the shower doesn’t have to be very expensive, you may all chip in together to give something expensive to the bride without burdening yourself. The second important point is that since it’s customary for the bride to open the gifts at the party itself make it look good; no matter what you’re giving, add a few ribbons, paper or glitter to make it look beautiful.
Gifts Ideas For A Bridal Shower
Let the newly weds kick start their mornings together with this great gift. You may split up and buy coffee mugs, coasters, coffee beans, coffee grinder or a coffee-maker and put it together to make a coffee hamper for her.
The newly weds may need to stock up their kitchen as well. You could help by giving something practical, that the bride could use everyday – slice board, cookie cutters, plates, spoons, glasses, kitchen towels, cooking gadgets and whatever you think that one could use in a kitchen. You could make a cake with the kitchen towels and attach spoons or other small gifts to decorate your “cake”.
Let’S Get Naughty
I had been to this one shower of a very dear friend of mine. The hostess of the shower gave some naughty gifts to the bride; you could use this idea if the bride is very near to you. Some sexy lingerie, swim suits, lacy shorts, silk/satin garters, hand cuffs or cute corsets. This will send some very clear and naughty messages to the bride.
Make Up Kitty
Who doesn’t like make up? I bet all girls simply adore them. You could buy a nice cosmetic bag or even a transparent cosmetic bag for the bride. You may get others to buy one make-up item each and gift theme all together.
You can get cute hair accessories, bracelets, corsages and rings and put them in a monogrammed box just for the bride. You could gift an accessory/ jewelry box too.
If you think that the bride could do with some cooking lessons sign her up for a few professional classes. You could also get her a few recipe books to help her impress her would-be hubby.
You can gift her, a pair of soft huggable pillows to adorn her bed. You could get them in satin or silk. Red will be a good color option that the bride could use for a romantic occasion.
