If your calendar has looked anything like mine recently, you’ve been spending all of your weekends at weddings, bridal showers and bachelorette parties. While they’re all fun in their own way, the cost of gifts can start to add up and also get a little predictable after a while. While it’s easiest to choose a gift off the event registry, if I have time I like to get a little creative with my gifts. If you’ve been stuck for a creative gift idea, I wanted to post a few I thought were cute ideas!
Bachelorette Survival Kit:
While the norm is to give the bride sexy lingerie, lets be a little more original by giving the bride-to-be a Bachelorette Survival Kit! It could include things like sunscreen, Advil, travel size bath products, a gift card to buy a new bathing suit, or even airplane bottles of her favorite liquor.
My girlfriend just got married so for her bridal shower I got her a hot pink Essie nail polish called “Bachelorette Bash“, some fake lashes, Advil, pink travel shampoo containers, mini pink champagnes and a bunch of other little goodies. It turned out really cute and was personalized just for her.
There’s bound to be a lot of cooking in the bride’s future so why not help her gain a little culinary inspiration by getting her cooking lessons? Give her an even better gift by making it a cooking class for two, that way her fiance has no excuse for not cooking dinner. You can always check out sites like Groupon or LivingSocial to find a deal in your area.
Thank You Notes with Her New Initials:
Bridal showers, bachelorette parties and weddings collectively contribute hundreds of gifts to the couple’s new life, but with all these gifts comes the need to thank people. Help the bride out by getting her some classic and beautiful thank you notes with her new last name on it. I love Papyrus, they have tons of cute cards to choose from!
I love this idea, I think it’s so cute and genuinely something any girl would love to have! If you’ve been lucky enough to get invited to all of the bride’s events, grab your invites from the wedding, bridal shower, bachelorette party and bridal luncheon and head down to your local craft store and assemble all of the invites into one large frame. Couples spend hundreds of dollars on all of these invites and don’t even get to really enjoy them themselves. This will help them treasure them forever.
Each bride needs a comfortable, yet stylish outfit to wear on their wedding day while they’re getting ready. Help her out and find a cute sweatsuit she can wear on her big day. Be sure to get a jacket that zips so that she can take it off without messing up her hair or make up. I love this one by Beach Bunny, super cute!
Gift Cards to Help with the Wedding:
Weddings get expensive and sometimes the brides doesn’t need lingerie as much as she needs help with paying for the wedding. Get her a gift card to Etsy or places like Target that can help with decorations, invitations, and some of the less fun items that need to be purchased. Sure it’s not as creative of glamorous but she’ll definitely appreciate it.
I know giving gifts can leave many with no clue where to start, so I hope these tips helped just a little bit!
