bridal shower giftChoosing the perfect bridal shower gift is not always easy, as you want to choose something that will be useful and appreciated, as well as serve as a good memory of the event. You want the bride to think of you whenever she uses your gift, and you want her to know how much you really do care, and how happy you are for her. You can’t go wrong with a personalized bridal shower gift.

One gift that most brides will love to receive, in the right atmosphere of course, is lingerie. Not only will it make the bride happy, but the groom will likely appreciate the gift as well. To add a personal touch, have the brides initials, her new initials, embroidered on. If you are interested in purchasing a gift that both the bride and groom can use, you might consider getting them some nice, fluffy bathrobes, and then having them personalized with their names, initials, or even a cute or funny appliqué. You could do the same with pajamas as well.

Candles are rapidly gaining in popularity, and make a perfect bridal shower gift. If you choose wisely, you can get candles that serve a decorative purpose, add that special romantic feel to a room, and even infuse wonderful fragrance throughout the home whenever they are in use. Candles come in many different varieties, sizes, and colors, so you can have fun taking your time picking out the perfect ones! You can also go the traditional route with crystal wine glasses or silver photo frames, which can be personalized with the couples initials or wedding date.

And of course, personalized gifts are easy for the person who has some artistic talent. You can take some time to handcraft an item for the new couple, which shows just how much you care for them. Some common handmade gifts are scrapbooks of the wedding, a hand-painted mailbox, a personalized quilt, etc. You may even inspire the couple to pursue their own artistic sides as well, you never know!

You want your bridal shower gift to be unique, and to really convey to the bride and groom how much you care, so it is important to put some thought into your gift. If you choose a gift from the bridal registry, you may also want to get a smaller, more personal gift to go along with it. The couple will certainly appreciate receiving the items that they need for their home, but they will also appreciate those special, fun gifts that you have taken the time to choose for them as well! It is okay to think out of the box when it comes to bridal shower gifts, you don’t have to stick with the traditional!
