33 Gifts for the Girl Who Has Everything—the Bride!
You've covered everyone on your list this season, including your girl and guy friends, your parents, the little ones in your life, and even your pet. There's just one person left to shop for: the bride. Shower the special lady in love this holiday season with a gift that she won't see coming. She deserves it—it's been one roller coaster of a year, one that very likely impacted her original big-day vision. Whether you're her groom, her relative, or her friend, we've rounded up a few presents that will let her know how much you care—and that you recognize what she's been through—come the holidays.
Brides are oftentimes tough to shop for, especially if they've already curated their registries (which means those quintessential home items on their lists are covered). It's easy to feel stuck when planning a present for your favorite lady, but fear not—we're here to help. Is the bride you're buying for obsessed with accessorizing, or is skincare more of her thing? Does she love sweating it out during her at-home fitness classes, or would she rather get cozy on the couch? Is she tying the knot, micro-wedding style, soon, or is she more focused on planning her honeymoon when travel becomes possible again? We know that there are tons of possibilities, which is why we've addressed them all.
Ahead, a comprehensive assortment of gifts that are stylish, thoughtful, and unique. These presents work outside of the holiday season, too—you can give them to your wife on the morning of the big day, to your loved one at her bridal shower, or to a bride on her birthday. Best of all, we've included inspiration in a range of price points to suit various budgets.
