Nine Things to Do for Your Newly-Engaged Best Friend to Show You Care
Getting engaged is a cause for celebration. Once the "yes!" is said, and all of the family and friends are called and told the happy news, you—as the best friend—might be wondering what you can do to share in the excitement for the upcoming nuptials. You probably want to show the bride just how much you care, but you might need some help finding the perfect way to do so. To that end, we've rounded up our top gift ideas that your best friend will love.
Champagne is a universal symbol for celebration. What better way to show the bride you're ready to start celebrating her new relationship status than by sending her a bottle of bubbly? We're sharing a service that will send your friend a wrapped bottle of her favorite brut—all ready for her to pop and enjoy. Whether you're near or far, you two can toast in person or over video chat. If you're looking for something a bit more personal, we have you covered. We found a wedding keepsake library that will help her and her beau keep tabs on all of the mementos the wedding planning journey will surely bring. Or, if you're looking for a classic gift that's sure to please, opt for a silk robe with "The Bride" delicately stitched on the back. She'll love getting ready in the mornings—before, on, and after her wedding day—in the luxurious wrap.
Here, we're sharing exactly what to do for your newly-engaged best friend, so you can focus on helping her plan her big day.
