Wedding Shower Gifts Wedding Registry


unique bridal shower, printable bridal shower games, make your own bridal shower invitations. Good. Someone else is organizing the theme of the shower. Someone else is handling the food, ceremony planning and registry invitations. And thankfully it's not you getting married. But you still have to bring a gift!

What should you buy? How does someone buy a proper gift for a bridal shower? What if the future bride opens all the presents in front of everyone and sees your gift and doesn't like? Don't panic. Here are some pointers for choosing a great gift.

Theme Gifts

If there's a theme party going--Hawaiian Island, Religious, Lingerie, Spa, and Celebrity-Look Alike-then you should buy a gift to fit the occasion. Remember, when in Rome... Buying a gift to fit in with the overall theme compliments the shower and shows team spirit. Besides, even if the guest of honor doesn't like it you can always blame the bad theme!

Traditional Gifts
However, not all bridal showers are artsy and fun. Some are very traditional and thus more traditional shower gifts would be expected. First consider the type of shower that's being thrown.

Is it a bachelorette party, a coworker shindig, a family affair or a second marriage? Some safe gifts might include china and glassware, other kitchen supplies, bedding and linens, and beauty products. If your girl is more of an outdoors person, why not surprise her with something related to camping or hiking?

If she's more a plant and animal person than a cook, then some lawn and garden supplies like fountains, birdfeeders, or wind chimes might be an unexpected treat. Newlywed couples love to have guests over, so don't underestimate the value of entertainment dinnerware, like punch bowls, wine glasses, candles and barbeques.

Easy On The Mind's Eye
Lingerie is another popular choice. Face it, very few people dislike lingerie in the privacy of their bedroom. But take it easy! The more conservative the crowd, (usually discernible by the age range of the guests) the less you would be advised to break out anything skimpy or ultra-creative.

Usually a nightgown or bra and panties would be a safe choice, unless of course you and everyone in the room already know your girl's scandalous side. In that case, buy a dress to kill!

Follow Your Heart
The better you know the bride-to-be, the more of your heart you can put into your gift. The heartfelt gifts are truly the most appreciated. So get to know your friend a little bit before the bridal shower.
