Who else loves wedding? I’ve got two more weddings this year, and three on the calendar for next year already!
While I sometimes buy couples items off their registry, since obviously those are curated for a reason, if I know the bride well, I like to go rogue—especially for a bridal shower. I like to express my love to the bride with more than just a four-slice toaster, you know?
I rounded up 10 engagement gift ideas for y’all last month, and while there definitely can be some overlap, I like to think of those gifts as more celebratory in nature—a fun place for the bride to put her new ring, champagne glasses, some new “Mrs.” swag—as opposed to something the couple can use for the long haul. As such, that’s the philosophy I take when shopping for bridal showers since it’s common to buy off the registry for these types of events. Of course, as with any of my gifting, I always try to give a gift the individual something they wouldn’t give themselves.
Crown Point Engagement Frame ($110)—a beautiful way for the bride and groom to display their wedding invitation.
Married “Firsts” Wine Labels ($26)—pop on your favorite bottles and present as a set of six.
Custom Wine Cork Holder ($47)—a cute way for a couple to display all the bottles they’ve shared together.
Whiskey Business Dish Towels ($24)—the best way to spice up an otherwise boring household item.
Personalized Doormat ($70)—especially great if the couple is starting a new home together.
Copper French Press ($50)—a beautifully designed twist on a household staple.
Marble & Wood Serving Board ($46)—the perfect serving dish for any future holidays or get-togethers.
Custom Address Stamp ($24)—these self inking stamps have the couple’s new shared last name and home address. #youknowyoureanadultwhen
Automatic Electric Corkscrew ($50)—a practical gift that’s also a great party trick.
