32 Unique Bridal Shower Gifts for the Girl Who Has Everything
Deviate from her registry with confidence.
Here's a common scenario: You're checking out your friend's wedding registry, searching for something fun to buy her for her bridal shower. Unfortunately, you realize that most of the splashy, unique items have already been scooped up—and, since you know the bride well, you don't want to gift her anything that could be construed as generic.
Deciding to (or being forced to!) deviate from the bride's registry can be daunting, especially if you know she's particular. Instead of panicking, consider items that she can use on her honeymoon, or gifts that will elevate her day-to-day life as a newlywed. From a cookbook designed for the newly-minted wife and the prettiest Dutch oven we've ever seen, to luxury beauty products and a clutch designed for a tropical vacation, the following presents are sure to put a smile on her face. In fact, she'll wish she thought of them herself.
This gift guide, curated for the stylish bride-to-be, is full of luxuries both little and big. Treat your bride to a luxe candle, gorgeous book set (complete with the greatest love poems of all time!), and a unique vase—all will transform her coffee table and celebrate her upcoming union in the sweetest of ways. Also on the list? A rosé wine set, perfect for sipping at the bachelorette party, and a designer ceramic box that'll keep her engagement ring safe.
We kept form and function in mind when putting together this wish list—after all, the things she turns to day after day should be as beautiful as they are useful. Ready to see the entire round-up for yourself? Click through for major bridal shower gift inspiration.
