Wedding Gifts for the Bride
She’s found the perfect guy and now it’s time to find the perfect gift for her. The happy couple will receive tons of gifts on their wedding day, but here are gift ideas especially for her.
Before the Big Day
Avoid Bridezilla! Why not give the bride a gift when she can really use it – during the wedding planning stage when she’s all stressed out trying to book a venue, find a dress, and decide between a chocolate raspberry cake or cupcake tower? Help her to relax with a spa gift basket or a weekend getaway to her favorite resort. If getting away is simply inconceivable – so much to do! – then plan a girls’ night in watching a funny romantic movie or give her a humorous book about married life.
A monogrammed gift will help her to celebrate this new stage in her life. If she’s changing her name, towels, pillows, casserole dishes, or glasses with her new initials are a great idea. If she’s keeping her name, monogrammed items with his and hers last initials make fine gifts for the bride and will mark the start of the new coupling.
The bride was probably so busy planning the wedding, she didn’t have time to think about the honeymoon. That’s where you come in. A guidebook to the honeymoon destination will come in handy, as will accessories for that particular locale – a beach bag packed with all the goodies for Hawaii, for example, is a great gift for the bride.
