Are you the maid of honor trying to find the perfect gift for the bride-to-be? Or, maybe you’re looking for a meaningful gift to give your soon-to-be spouse? Either way, you’ll want to find the perfect present to give this special lady.
But with so many ideas and options to choose from, it can be challenging to narrow your focus and come up with the perfect gift. Don’t fret. Here are four surefire wedding gifts for the bride-to-be.
1. A Bridal-Themed Gift Box
It’s traditional for the maid of honor to gather the bridesmaids and organize some sort of group gift for the bride-to-be. Rest assured, you can’t go wrong with creating a gift box or personalized hamper that hits on a certain theme and/or which includes different products and goodies that the bride already enjoys.
Conversely, if the bride-to-be is newly engaged and you’re looking for an engagement gift, consider selecting items she’ll want as she starts wedding planning. For instance, a fashionable makeup bag, customized/punny coffee mug or journal are all great ideas.
Ultimately, with a little thought and attention to detail, these and other gift ideas are sure to put a smile on her face on her wedding day.
2. A Custom Photo Album
It doesn’t matter if you’re related to or how well you know the bride: A personalized photo album is always a thoughtful and welcoming gift. Indeed, a couple’s engagement is such a special time that there’s bound to be an abundance of memories the bride wants to capture, including photos of her engagement, wedding dress, bridal party and so much more.
Pro tip: Consider getting the album cover customized with something like “Mr. and Mrs.” or the names of the couple.
3. A Wedding Day Survival Kit
This is a lovely gift for the mother of the bride to give her daughter. After all, you’ve spent your whole life trying to protect and nurture your daughter, so why would her special day be any different?
But unless you’re a professional wedding planner, you might be surprised by the amount of unforeseen (albeit minor) emergencies that rear their ugly heads when the wedding day arrives. This is where a wedding day survival kit — complete with cosmetics, a sewing kit, bobby pins, tampons, deodorant, lip balm, hand wipes, Benadryl, snacks and so much more — definitely comes in handy.
Needless to say, this type of gift would be quite the surprise for the bride-to-be. Then again, if you don’t know her style and preferences, picking out lingerie for a loved one can be a difficult task. Bottom line: If you’re considering purchasing lingerie for her wedding night, remember comfort is just as critical as style.
After all, by the time you leave your wedding celebration, she’ll have spent hours in heels and a tight-fitting dress. So, be sure to purchase lingerie that’s as comfortable as it is sexy. On a similar note, you’ll also want to keep her definition of sexy at the center of your decision-making as you start shopping.
It almost goes without saying that lingerie preferences vary from person to person. For some, it’s lace and a risqué design; for others, it’s pretty shapewear. So, don’t forget to consider this first before making a purchase.
