After the engagement comes fun celebrations like Bridal Showers, and Bachelorette Parties! With these celebrations come novelty gifts, and sexy lingerie that most brides end up returning. I know I'm guilty of packing my "bride" decor away in a box somewhere. Even though these gifts are cute, there really is only one use for them ..... the wedding day!
I've put together some very heart felt gift ideas for those looking to surprise their bride friend with something special & useful!
Custom Hanger: These inexpensive hangers can be found on www.Etsy.com for anywhere from $5-$15. They make a huge statement and also make photographs of a wedding dress beautiful! Ditch the white plastic Target hangers... and upgrade to something more custom!
Monogram Wine Glass: This cute gift showcases the brides new last name on a glass she will use daily! These glasses can also be found on www.Etsy.com and range from $9-$15 per glass. The monogram colors and fonts are customizable as well! Package their wine glass with their favorite type of wine of champagne! If you are really feeling fancy... throw some glitter on it!
Custom monogram Tote: These totes can be used for over night stays, honeymoon travels, grocery shopping ... you name it! Who doesn't like a personalized bag? These can also be a cute way to wrap your gift! You can also find these custom totes in a variety of sizes & colors on www.Etsy.com. Prices range from $15-25 a bag.
Hand stamped bar necklace: These trendy necklaces can be worn any day and every day. You can either stamp the lucky brides name or new monogram. She will not only love the thought of this gift, but reminded daily of it when she wears it! I purchased these necklaces from www.erinfader.com.
Custom Flip flops: This gift is extremely inexpensive, cute and can be worn any day! Make it more custom by utilizing her "wedding colors" for the color of the flip flop/ribbon. These also make a great dancing shoes for her to wear the night of her wedding! Slip them under her wedding table... for when she's ready to do the cupid shuffle! These were purchased from
