Gifts for the Bride

Shopping for the bride to be can either be super easy or totally overwhelming. If you know the bride well, it can be an exciting task that involves spending more money than necessary as you parade around the mall grabbing anything that says the word bride. But if you are new to the wedding world, have never been a bride yourself, or do not know her very well, it can be a little intimating picking out a gift. With engagement parties, bridal showers, panty parties, and bachelorette weekends, it can seem like a lot of gifting. But today I am sharing some of my favorite gift ideas to make shopping for the bride to be a breeze!

1. Themed Notepads or Checklists 

Planning a wedding is serious business. You will never list so hard in your life! With all the tasks running through her mind, she will really appreciate a cute notepad or to do list to keep everything in order. I am obsessed with Brittany Fuson Illustrations. She makes the most adorable notepads and checklists.

2. Glassware

Who doesn’t love a coffee mug with a cute saying on it? You can find adorable travel mugs, wine glasses, or even water bottles that have a wedding theme to them. I love this travel mug from Charming Charlie! 

3. Stickers and Stationary

It is no secret that the lady in white will be obligated to express her thanks with the countless thank cards. Why not pick her out a cute stationary to make the task a little more fun.

4. Bath Products

Wedding planning can be stressful at times. Baths are a great way to relieve the tension. Put together a little spa kit with bubble bath, bath bombs, and salts to make it a whole relaxing experience. 

5. Travel Accessories

Help her travel in style with cute luggage tags, passport case, baseball cap, etc. She will definitely want to show off her new MRS. status with some themed travel accessories.

6. Subscription Service 

Now they have a subscription box for everything! I think it is such a cute idea to gift an underwear subscription as a panty party or bachelorette gift. Underclub is soft launching a new $12.95 subscription line and you can get exclusive access when you subscribe this month. Or if you are into more natural products, you can try Until It’s Quiet for relaxation themed boxes! I tried out their lavender box and have been loving the candle scent! But subscription services make great gifts because the bride has something to look forward to every month.
