Bridal Shower Gift Ideas
You've been invited to the bridal shower - what fun! You already have a wonderful wedding gift, but you aren't sure about bridal shower gift ideas. The first rule of thumb is that a bridal shower gift is generally a bit more personal; that is, it focuses on the bride rather than the couple. So think in terms of her likes and dislikes as well as the theme of the party.
Many times you can get your best bridal shower gift ideas simply by reading the invitation closely. Will they be "showering" her with gifts for her honeymoon trip? Then think about where she's going and what she's like. If they're skiing in Colorado, you have a head start. Think about a luxurious cashmere scarf, snuggly slippers, or perhaps a wonderful bottle of schnapps and two crystal glasses for in front of the lodge's fire in the evenings!
Is it a kitchen shower? Think about her favorite types of food and go from there. If she likes baking, a basket of the little necessities is nice - extracts and flavored oils, measuring spoons, muffin tins, and a pastry brush for instance.
Anything personal is always nice, since in the coming weeks the bride will be rushing about like mad. Giving a gift of relaxation is a sure-fire hit. A pedicure and manicure gift certificate, a massage or day at the spa are all wonderful gestures.
Is the bride practical? Put together a great little "everything basket" to keep by her phone or on her desk that has all those things you can never find when you need them: A few nice pens, clear nail polish, postage stamps, a small bottle of her favorite perfume, a nail file, a change purse with a few bills and some change, a notepad, a small screwdriver, tape, and anything else you usually need at a moment's notice and can't find! Tuck in some decadent chocolates for emergency fuel and you're set!
