Most weddings are once in a lifetime affairs. Of course, there will be many more special events that the future husband and wife will host together, but for many women, the wedding is the next-to-last grandest event. We know that the struggle to find the perfect wedding gift can be too real – but when it comes to the wedding shower one should focus on the bride-to-be. If you have been invited to a bridal shower, it is only natural to bring a gift. Some people even like to stick to a theme and pick a shower gift and wedding present that are related in some way.
Brides often ask that guests bring gifts that are tied to a central theme. A bride might want only lingerie gifts or items for her new kitchen. But what do you do when the happy bride hasn’t given a hint anywhere? What if you want to give her something unexpected? This is where our list starts. We’ve included ideas for classic gifts as well as a few surprise items.
