Unique Bridal Shower Gift Ideas
Bridal Shower Gift & Favor Ideas
Are you getting ready to attend a bridal shower but don't know what to buy for the bride-to-be? Or maybe you're the maid of honor, faced with the daunting task of finding the perfect party favor. If these situations sound familiar, you're not alone. Choosing the perfect bridal shower gift can be a challenge.
Whether you're throwing the shower or you're a guest looking for a unique gift for the to-be-weds, this guide will give you some fantastic bridal shower gift ideas.
Check the Registry
The registry is the first place to start when choosing gifts for a bridal shower. Most couples create a gift registry to avoid receiving duplicate gifts and ensure they get the items they need to begin their new lives together.
First, find out where the couple is registered. Then search for the couple's names on that website's registry section. Some couples opt for a personalized wedding website instead, where you can find information about the big day, the registry and event photos.
If there's nothing left on the registry within your price range, it's acceptable to shop off-registry. Saving registry shopping for the wedding day and choosing a more personal item for the shower is another popular choice.
Personalized gifts are an excellent choice for any bride and can be cherished as a memento of her wedding for years to come. For example, monogrammed bags and customized jewelry are easy and elegant gift options. Charcuterie boards engraved with the couple's names and wedding date are another unique keepsake choice.
Gift cards are the perfect choice when you're at a loss for what to give the bride. Our customizable e-gift cards are available in a range of amounts and will allow the bride to choose from among any of our highly scented products, from three-wick candles to our line of cruelty-free body care products.
The lead-up to a wedding can be one of the most stressful times in a bride's life. Help her relax with the gift of a specially curated self-care package just for her. Pamper her with face masks, bath bombs and the perfect scented body lotion or aromatherapy candle. Throw in a gift card to a salon or spa for a massage or pedicure to step it up a notch.
If you're in the position of planning the bridal shower, you may be looking for something unique to give the guests as party favors; while bridal shower favors aren't required, they can be a nice gesture.
Favors should be as personal and unique as your bride, but you'll want to stay within budget. It's usually unnecessary to spend more than $10 per gift, and most favors can be purchased in the $2 to $6 range. For example, our clean-burning wax melts are an affordable, versatile option for party favors. These wax tarts come in a wide range of flame-free fragrances customizable to your bride's personality and preference.
A small hostess gift is never a bad idea at any gathering. A bottle of champagne, a box of chocolates or a richly scented candle are all great options. Our Rose Petal Icing scent is perfectly on-theme for a bridal shower, with its scent of vanilla icing and pink roses. Or try a gift from the Cake Pops Collection for something a little whimsical and fun.
Whichever gift you choose for the bride-to-be or her shower guests, you're sure to make her feel special and honored with these unique gift ideas.
