If your friend is tying the knot—whether it be next year or next month—you’ve probably already pondered what gifts would be absolutely perfect for her. Because if there’s one thing to know about impending nuptials, it’s that they involve a lot of wedding gifts. From the bridal shower to the actual wedding day, there are ample opportunities to bless the bride with something she’ll love. And, considering bridal showers typically happen earliest on a calendar of wedding events, we’ll start there. (First things first, after all.)
The easiest thing to do is get the bride something from her registry—but if you’re trying to be more creative, go for something that will help her start her new life with her partner. Think kitchenware, travel essentials (for the honeymoon, obvs), or some luxe bed sheets. Or, you can opt for something more personal, like a customized necklace or stack of stationery. The goal is simply for the bride to love the gift—and hopefully use it more than just once.
With that said, here are 63 extremely chic and unique bridal shower gift ideas to browse. So for those who accidentally wait to snag a gift until the registry is totally picked over, you have a saving grace (okay, 63 saving graces). You’re welcome.
