Giving a personalized gift for a bridal shower is a wonderful way to welcome the newlyweds into this world. Personalizing a gift meant for the bride to be is great, especially if it is using her new last name or initials. This article will cover just a few tried and true bridal shower gifts that are perfect for personalization.
Here are a few tried and true bridal shower gifts that are perfect for personalization:
Lingerie is a great bridal shower gift that the bride to be will love and is sure to please the groom to be as well! Have the lingerie personalized with the bride’s new initials or a special phrase that will mean something special to the couple.
Bathrobes for the couple can be personalized with the usual names but what about something that indicates they are newly weds, perhaps a cute little drawing done by you the gift giver? Maybe you could write a poem to the special couple.
Pajamas are another wonderful little bridal shower gift that can be personalized with a unique appliqué, a set of wedding rings or a bride and groom having their first kiss along with the wedding date of the couple to be.
Candles symbolizing the colors of milestone anniversaries are another way to give a personal touch to a wedding shower gift. For example buy a bunch of candles in a variety of colors and write a special instruction sheet to accompany them. The instructions could include things such as a color chart and a timeline for burning, such as, “Red is for passion, burn these on your first night together.”
Wine glasses and picture frames are another great bridal shower gift that can be personalized with the wedding date or couple’s name. In the picture frame you could also add a picture of you and the bride to be or a picture of the happy couple.
A welcome mat with the bride and groom’s new shared last name would be a great idea for a bridal shower gift that could be given at a party focused on the bride and groom to be.
If you are a crafty person the possibilities for a personalized gift are endless. Just knowing that you crafted the gift yourself will tell the bride to be that you care enough to make a personal gift just for her. As a hostess of a bridal shower you could purchase a scrapbook and pages to go in it.
Send the pages to each of the guests and ask them to create a page just for the bride to be. When they come to the bridal shower they can place the pages into the scrapbook and the bride to be will have a memory of all of her friends and family that made the pages.
Another personal gift that the guests at the bridal could all contribute to is a cutting board signed and personalized with little messages by all the bridal shower guests. After everyone has signed the cutting board you may want to put a clear coat on it to protect it but the bride to be will probably just display the cutting board in her new kitchen.
If you are a hobbyist craft painter maybe you would want to paint a mailbox for the bride and groom to be. You could paint on their house numbers, shared last name, or get creative and maybe paint it with the couple’s wedding color and they could use it for cards at the wedding reception.
Personalized bridal shower gifts are a great idea and can really show the bride and groom to be how special they are to you. No matter what gift you give remember that it is not the gift that counts but the thought you put into it. Try to get the couple or bride to be something that has a purpose.
