Bridal Shower Gift Ideas – Bride Canvas Tote and Honeymoon Survival Kit (Bride and Groom Cup Holders, Honeymoon Decision Dice and Do Not Disturb Door Hanger)

Are the bride and groom going on a honeymoon? This is a fun honeymoon survival kit! The tote bag is actually quite useful and I like that it is in neutral colors. It also comes with some cute Mr. and Mrs. cup coolers (you can’t see it in this picture, but on the back they say “To have and to hold and to keep your drink cold.” Cute, eh?). But one of the best parts of this kit is the set of honeymoon decision dice. They are a fun and lighthearted way for them to have some more fun on their honeymoon, if you know what I mean 🙂 .

Another way to use this kit is to split it up throughout the bride’s whole wedding planning process! The tote bag is great for engagement gifts, the cup coolers for bridal shower gifts, and the door sign and dice for bachelorette party gifts!

Personalized Name created with Black and White Architectural Alphabet Photographs

I love this Alphabet Photograph sign as a gift for a engaged or newlywed couple. You customize the alphabet name with the couple’s last name, and you get to put their first names and their wedding date for an added personal touch. There are also many frame colors and sizes to choose from. The couple will be able to hang this lovely picture in their home for years to come!

Bridal Buddy -sheer lightweight Bridal Slip that helps brides use the bathroom on their own

I have a soft spot for this item. Looking back to my own wedding, I definitely remember the embarrassing moment when my bridesmaids would have to come into the bathroom with me and hold my dress while I had to pee. (Yes, for those of you that haven’t gone through this, it is quite embarrassing, even with your best friends). Figuring out how to pee with your wedding dress is one of the big problems that have been plaguing brides for years…and that everyone just accepts is part of the whole process. This solution is genius! (Why can’t I think of these things?)

The lightweight slip gets put on before the wedding dress. When it is time for the bride to go use the bathroom, she gathers the skirt into the slip as she pulls it up. Then there are some helpful arm holes to stick her arms through and a drawstring to keep it all held up and together while she does her thing. It is pretty awesome.

A classic that will be made all the more sweet for the bride now that she is going through the whole wedding planning process. It is so fun to watch a movie that you saw forever ago and have a whole new take on it.

The Cookie Sutra: An Ancient Treatise: that Love Shall Never Grow Stale. Nor Crumble.

Yes, you are seeing this right, it is totally a take on the Kama Sutra positions. But it is cute and funny enough that it is totally appropriate to be counted on lists for bridal shower gifts or bachelorette party gifts. You can pair the book with a gift basket of different baking items for an even more awesome gift idea that will make everyone laugh. And I promise people will be fighting over taking a look at this fun, entertaining conversation piece, making you a hit at the party!

Kate Spade New York Bride Engraved Bangle Bracelet

If you are looking for more simple and elegant wedding gift ideas, look no further than this beautiful bangle. There are lovely cursive engraved inscriptions on the bracelet subtle enough not to be ostentatious. The inscriptions include “happily ever after,” “toss the bouquet,” and “tie the knot.” It is also a classic piece that a bride can wear on her wedding day, and the sentimental messages will make her think of you!

Chicken Soup for the Bride’s Soul: Stories of Love, Laughter and Commitment to Last a Lifetime (Chicken Soup for the Soul)

For anyone not living under a rock for the past 20 years, you have most likely heard of the various Chicken Soup for the Soul books – and they are popular for a reason. These books are amazingly comforting when you need a little pick me up or if you are just feeling overwhelmed. Since a bride is constantly stressed out while planning her wedding, this is perfect! This book has a series of motivational and hilarious stories and is a wonderfully entertaining read for any bride.

Williams-Sonoma Bride & Groom Cookbook

I think a cookbook is a fantastic idea to go on your list for engagement gifts or wedding gifts for both the bride and groom. Since they are entering a new stage of their lives, many couples will be starting new traditions and working together to create memories. Since so many families and events center around a meal, what better way to start of a lifetime of companionship?

This particular cookbook was written by chefs that are also a couple, and they draw upon their experiences in their personal lives to deliver a masterpiece that is geared toward a newlywed couple. They even go into basics of how to set up a kitchen and pantry, or how to combine dishes to create a meal. I think this is a great gift for any couple, whether they are cooking geniuses or novices!
