For most, weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime event that they want to make as memorable as possible, and the bridal shower is almost as important – as an event that most brides look forward to spending with their loved ones before the big day. A tried and true method for making any bride’s wedding shower memorable can be as simple as choosing the right gift.
Whether you’re preparing to attend a bridal shower soon or want to know what to give a soon-to-be bride, take a look at some suggestions for gift ideas that are sure to please.
When it comes to bridal shower gifts, you can opt for one of two options: either give a personalized gift, which can be virtually anything or gift something specific to help set up a new home together.
If you choose to go with a personal gift, then it’s entirely up to you for what you want to give, but if you’ve decided to give something that’s more practical, then the following gifts ideas should do the trick.
It might sound a bit radical, but hand sanitizer containers actually make very sensible gifts in today’s post-pandemic world. There are many companies out there that take custom orders for hand sanitizers as well as other products. You can have the hand sanitizers show “spread love, not germs” or “Thank you” messages in your favorite spray bottle design and color.
Customizing this particular gift is important as otherwise, it’ll be nothing special as hand sanitizers can be bought dime-a-dozen from local stores or ordered online.
Women can never have enough hair clips, making them the perfect gift for bridal showers. Your preferred jewelry store can choose fancy hair clips with rhinestones, pearls, and other ornamental items.
Try out hair clips with a “Bride” tag on them written in sparkly rhinestones, especially for the bride as she gets ready for her big day. The price of ornamental hair clips tends to be on the expensive side, but fortunately, the price range is quite flexible.
This is one of those gifts most couples don’t know they want until they get it. Bathrobes are great for relaxing- you can comfortably slip unto them after coming back home after a hard day’s work. There are bathrobes of different materials and designs that can cost anywhere from fifty to a few hundred dollars.
If you decide to go with bathrobes as the bridal shower gift, make sure to grab an extra one for the groom as well. Try to get ones that are both comfy and made of comfortable materials.
The new couple may not have considered this extra piece of kitchenware since most couples these days aren’t accustomed to having friends and family for full-course dinners. Once they start regularly welcoming guests during holidays or family gatherings, they’ll really be thankful for it.
You can also gift ornate silverware as well if you know other friends and family members are already getting plates. If you’re feeling really generous, you can opt for gifting an entire dinner set. The prices for appetizer plate sets aren’t usually too expensive unless you want to gift the top-tier stuff like porcelain plates.
A very necessary kitchen item that most couples tend to forget is the simple bottle opener. And even if they have bottle openers at home, the newlyweds are still likely to highly appreciate a charming bottle opener.
You can easily buy ornamental bottle openers online or order customized ones from companies that specialize in such services online. Bottle openers are quite cheap, and even ordering specialty-customized ones won’t set you back much and are a nice extra touch.
If you’re an immediate family member of the bride, you can choose to surprise your loved one by getting them custom bridal shower invitations with photo to make the event that much more memorable. You can easily order them online with any type of design you want.
Deciding on a gift for a soon-to-be bride is definitely not an easy job, even if you have a basic idea about what to give. So think a bit before deciding what to give and try to make the gift as memorable as possible; hopefully, you’ll end up giving something that the bride will cherish for years to come.
