Such A Decision ... The Perfect Wedding Shower Gift
What Bride To Be Would Not Love To Be Treated To This Ride!
So, You Are Trying To Think Of That Perfect Bridal Shower Gift?
Gifts That Will Elate The Bride, And Invoke Sheer Screams Of Happiness !
Consider gifting a limo service. Make it pink. Maybe she will take you-all along on a great day of shopping?
It's always hard to come up with that perfect gift to give a friend at her Bridal shower? Sure most bride register at various stores.
But I always wondered? Does the prospective bride really have a burning desire to receive that food processor or that oh so sought after micro.
Wouldn't it be swell to see her face light up when she opens a great new pair of shoes (appropriate for the honeymoon trip) or a really pretty negligee, with matching slippers?
Now I know a bridal shower can provide a couple with much of the stuff they will need to set up a home. But why not delegate some of the invited guests to buy personal gifts, gifts the bride will get a thrill out of receiving.
Make the bride feel special, on her very special day.
Bridal shower gifts any bride would love to receive
- A great piece of luggage, to lug along on her Honeymoon.
- A wonderful bottle of perfume. She might not splurge on herself?
- A new handbag... In all the wedding hoopla, a girl might not think of buying a new handbag for her Honeymoon trip.
- A day at the spa. Need I say more?
- Girls day out! Pool some cash, and take the bride on a bit of a pre-wedding shopping spree. This gift can provide all involved with a fun day out, that all will share in the fun, and cherish the memory of.
- Limo - service for a night. Leave this gift open ended. The bride can use the service whenever she desires too? If you're lucky, she will use it on girls day out.
- Lingerie - It's always nice to receive beautiful lingerie. Make it personality appropriate. Just because a girl gets married, doesn't mean all of a sudden she is going to sleep in see through garments. So much lingerie given as gifts sits in a draw, and never worn.
- Gift certificate to a Hairstylist. If the bride is one that is adventurous, and loves to try new hairstyles or maybe she just could use updating? Sometimes one needs a shove...
You Need A Hat Box For That Ribbon Hat
Tip: Every Great Bridal Shower produces a wonderful ribbon hat. It's such a great tradition. Tip: Buy a special hat box to store that wonderful ribbon hat in. As a rule at the end of a shower, the hat has no home, and will most likely be stored in a plastic bag, where it will be crunched, and eventually tossed out... due to it poor shape. Be a hero bring a hat box, and save the ribbon hat.
