8 Gift Ideas the Bride-to-Be Will Love

It's no doubt an exciting time when your bestie gets engaged, and your gift to celebrate her should emphasize love, generosity and excitement, too. You can always play it safe by shopping the registry or giving cash. 
But since it's your long-time friend, you'll likely want to be a little more creative and unique. Not sure how and where to get started? Here are eight ideas to inspire you as you shop for the perfect gift. 
1. Beach Gear from the Girl Gang
Get the bride-to-be ready for her beachy bachelorette weekend or tropical honeymoon with gifts from the girl gang. Every beach bummin' bride needs a "Happily Ever After" floppy hat, bride one piece bathing suit, the "Future Mrs. last name" tote and wine tumblers personalized with the bride and groom's initials or "Mr." and "Mrs." 
2. Marriage Advice Scrapbook
Perfect for the bridal shower, a scrapbook filled with personal marriage advice can be both a keepsake and guidebook for navigating married life. Ask friends and family to share their wisdom and experiences during the shower, or put the book together beforehand. The bride and groom will love to read through the stories over coffee or a glass of wine. 
3. White Lingerie 
Although sexy lingerie may make a bride blush, it's a classic and traditional gift for the bachelorette party. A sexy pair of white lingerie can be worn underneath her wedding dress, on the wedding night or during the honeymoon. Shop for something that matches your friend's personality, from racy and risqué to flirty and playful. 
4. Rosé All Day Recipe Book
They say every day is a rosé kind of day — and a rosé cocktails recipe book featuring 40 delicious pink-wine recipes is a perfect gift for your wino friend. Indeed, the bride-turned-mixologist will learn to concoct drinks like a strawberry frosé for a summery girls brunch or a sparkling sweet drink to wind down from the day. Complement this book with a couple of stemless wine glasses and bottle of rosé. 
5. Spa Day 
Wedding planning is stressful, which is why you can never go wrong with a spa gift card. Give her that romantic glow by pampering her with a deep nourishing facial, relaxing massage or invigorating body scrub. Any bride-to-be will appreciate a luxurious spa treatment leading up to the big day. 
6. Sleepy Time Gift Set
Quality sleep plays one of the most important roles for good health, so give your gal pal the essentials for getting a restful night's sleep. For example, Lush's Sleepy body lotion is infused with a calming and soothing lavender scent. Add a silky sleep mask, pajama set and romantic blossom heat pillow to take her nighttime ritual to the next level. 
7. Boss Babe Planning Accessories 
For the woman making moves in her career, shop (no longer available) You'll find colorful notebooks, planners, calendars and clipboards designed for the boss bride. With the right tools, she can live her best life writing in a gratitude journal or setting her goals. 
8. Kate Spade Sparkle
Every bride deserves to sparkle at her wedding festivities, especially on her wedding day. Kate Spade jewelry will make your bride shine like a goddess. After all, what bride wouldn't love glitter heart earrings, a rose gold heart cuff or pendant necklace personalized with the first initial of her soon-to-be last name. 
Shower the Bride with Love and Attention
From lacy lingerie to glittering jewelry, these gifts will make any bride feel special! If she has planned an exotic beach honeymoon destination, go for the beach gear. Does she love self-care? Then spring for the spa treatment or sleep essentials. Looking for something a little more personal? Put together the marriage advice scrapbook. Ultimately, whatever you choose, it's all about celebrating the bride-to-be as she becomes a future "Mrs."


  1. The marriage advice scrapbook is a neat idea. That could be fun to go through over the years.

  2. Really specific gifts, very nice list.
