What is the best etiquette for choosing a gift for the bridal shower? Should you choose a gift for the bride, or something that the couple can both use? Should you pick something from the couple’s registry, or should you choose a gift that is a bit more personal and shows how well you really know the bride? We say: go with your gut. If you’re totally stumped on what to buy, you can easily choose something off the registry and ensure the couple will love your gift. If you have found something that is just SO HER, go for it! Just be sure to get a gift receipt! You can always choose something from the registry for the wedding gift.
Here are a few ideas we’re loving for unique bridal shower gifts.
Framed photos definitely help make a house feel like a home. The newlyweds will be excited to show off all their new wedding photos, so gifting them nice frames is something they will definitely love (and need!)>
Dinner Delivery Subscription
There are already so many things the bride has on her mind, why not gift her something to make at least one thing easier? Our favorite for making dinner one less stressor is Hello Fresh, but there are many other options out there.
Etched Map Wine Glasses
These are fun for couples that no longer live in the city they met in, but you can also pick maps of where they met, where they got married or where they chose for their honeymoon!
A Spa Set
This includes everything the bride needs to feel relaxed as she prepares for the big day!
Does the couple-to-be love to cook together? Or could they use a subtle hint that their cooking needs a little work? Either way this cookbook is a great gift, if you also throw in some cooking tools!
Does the soon-to-be married couple love to cook together? Give them the challenge of a new recipe with the Newlywed cookbook from Anthropologie. Throw in a few fun cooking gadgets and you’ve got yourself the perfect couple’s shower gift!
