Best Bridal Shower Gifts GIF bracelets pedicure travel case jewelry

It’s time to shower the bride! You’ve likely perused the registry (as you should), and you may have your eye on a thing or two. The best bridal shower gifts are the ones that consider the bride herself, so if you’re looking to add something special to the mix, we’ve got a list of ideas that she will truly love. First, let’s cover a few bases.

How Much to Spend on a Bridal Shower Gift

Generally speaking, you should expect to spend at least $25 on a gift and up from there, depending on your relationship to the bride. If you’re a bridesmaid or the bride is a close friend or family member, you might spend closer to $75. You can split your budget among more than one gift, as well. And yes, if you’re invited to the shower, you are expected to bring a gift.

What are good bridal shower gift ideas?

The best bridal shower gift is one that is personal and unique to the bride and something that she’ll use and/or appreciate for a long time. We’ve organized a list of gifts below into categories to help you pinpoint that perfect gift. First up, we’ve got gifts for her—pampering ideas and trinkets to commemorate this new chapter. Next, it’s gifts for the bedroom, the kitchen, the home, and the traveler.

These ideas go beyond your typical registry items and consider her new, exciting stage of life! We pretty much guarantee you’ll find something special here that she’ll love well beyond the I Do’s.
