These days, anything goes with bridal showers. Either the wedding registry is also the shower registry, OR you buy for the bride, OR you gift the couple. Do spend less than the wedding gift, but don’t sweat it; we’ve got you covered with these excellent bridal shower gift ideas.
How much should I spend on a bridal shower gift?
When it comes to spending on a bridal shower gift, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer, as it largely depends on your relationship with the bride-to-be and your personal budget. As a general guideline, consider spending between $25 to $75 for a friend or coworker and between $50 to $150 for a close friend or family member. Ultimately, choose a thoughtful and meaningful gift, as it’s the sentiment behind the gift that truly counts!

So, let’s dive in and discover the best bridal shower gifts that’ll make her special day even more memorable!
Almost everyone requires a darn good flower-holder, so you can’t go wrong with a vase. These gorgeous gilded vases have enough bling to say “special occasion” but a vintage-feel that will look classy in any room. Buy one, or buy a few.
This gift box brings a little bit of fun to kick-start the festivities. It comes equipped with a personalized city candle, a gold foil “love” matchbox, a Mr. & Mrs. lumbar pillowcase, Mr. & Mrs. luggage tags, matching gold foil mugs, and a sweet gift card. A really cute gift from the maid of honor.
Bridal hair pins make a super cute gift for the bride-to-be to wear during her bridal shower, for her bachelorette party, or even on her honeymoon. All three hairpins are included, each decorated with clear rhinestones.
The couple who plays together stays together (well, unless you’ve got a lousy loser…) This gorgeous heirloom-quality “connect-4” -style game is made from maple wood and can be personalized with the couple’s names and wedding date. It’s a truly unique gift that’s sure to be a standout hit.
For the couple that loves sushi date nights at home, this 6-piece set makes an elegant and original gift. It includes two rectangular plates, two sauce dishes, and two sets of bamboo chopsticks, all packaged in a matching gift box.
A classy and casual way to declare “I’m a bride!” this straw bridal bag makes a great honeymoon tote or would serve well as a catch-all bag on her wedding day. Each tote comes with an internal drawstring closure to keep everything where it’s supposed to be.
Champagne flutes are a common registry item, but these old-school coupe glasses are far more unique. Legend has it; the glass was modeled on Marie Antoinette’s left breast, which, while not true, captures the timeless sexiness of this vintage champagne vessel.
Bridal shower gifts can serve as a way to help the bride prepare for her big day. Help her face any beauty emergency with nail clippers, tweezers, scissors, nail file, hair ties, bobby pins, paper clothing tape, oil-absorbing wipes, and a mini sewing kit.
No one buys sauce bowls, but we all get caught needing them. Help the newlyweds to dunk it like Steph Curry with this set of six ceramic dipping bowls. They’re perfect for sauces, salad dressings, spreads, seasonings, and herbs.
These personalized panties are perfect for her wedding day or any day that follows. Choose a font color and size (it’s recommended to size up), and you’ve got yourself a genuinely distinctive bridal shower gift. They make a great present from the bridesmaid.
A gift that’s both individual and aesthetically beautiful is always a winner. These personalized cheese boards are made from Italian marble and acacia wood and are a functional keepsake. The happy couple can use it as a cheese board, cutting board, serving tray, or on display as kitchen decor.
For those who love their full-bodied reds, this gracefully curved decanter from Austria’s world-famous Riedel will perfectly aerate their favorite Cabernet. Pair it with a nice bottle of wine, or even some matching wine glasses, for a DIY gift set.
Another perfect gift to set the bride up for success is these ultra-fluffy slippers. They’re perfect for pre-prep on the big day, as well as lounging about on her honeymoon. Plus, the rubber sole means she can wear them around the pool or even her wedding rehearsal.
Everyone needs a hammer. Not many consider gifting one at a bridal shower. But this is no ordinary hammer. Engraved with “Building our life together,” it’s both a sentimental and handy gift that’ll come in ridiculously handy for any couple–– from hanging wedding photos to erecting furniture.
A sweet porcelain keepsake box, this Kate Spade original is classy and timeless. It measures 4.5 inches square, so it’s the perfect size for storing little treasures from the big day without cluttering their space.
These beautiful gold leaf dessert forks are totally Insta-worthy and will impress as a gift. Crafted from high-quality stainless steel, they are guaranteed not to bend, rust, or shed gold, so they’ll be elevating dinner parties for years to come.
These fun portraits are individually designed and make a cool wedding shower gift. Supply the artist with a good photo of each person and any text you’d like. Note: it’s a “print yourself” design, so you’ll need to get it printed before gifting. But do gift the digi-file too.
These walnut pyramid ring holders are a modern, minimalist spin on the classic ring dish. You’ll get a 4-piece set of varying heights which makes them useful for multiple rings and a standout piece of decor in their own right. These make for a cute engagement gift too!
You can’t go wrong with hotel-quality, white bath towels–– for any occasion. And, eight thousand Amazon reviewers can’t be wrong about how luxurious these towels are. You’ll get two bath towels, two hand towels, and two washcloths, and the price is so reasonable you might as well monogram them.
Design a set of coasters with the couple’s names and wedding date for a one-of-a-kind table-saving gift. The set of four arrives in a bamboo display holder, and there are 14 designs to choose from, so you’re sure to find something that’ll suit their tastes.
Appliances are often touted as the perfect bridal shower gift, but it’s hard to know what they need if there’s no registry. Except that everyone needs an ice cream maker. One that also makes frozen yogurt. And sorbet.
One of the best bridal shower gifts that you might not think of is a personalized wedding dress hanger. Every wedding photographer wants that quintessential shot of the hanging gown, so this gives them something special to work with. Choose a color for both the wire and wood, plus a flower or bow.
No one knows they need a set of fine sieves until it’s too late. So this will ensure that the happy couple is all set. These not only look fancy, but they’re also extremely durable, which will come in handy for straining grains, rinsing fruits and vegetables, and dusting cakes with powdered sugar.
Help them spice up their new life by learning to cook together–– with 100 classic and modern recipes like Leek and Goat Cheese Tart, Whole Side of Salmon, and One-Bowl Brownies. The recipe book also shares wisdom on setting up a pantry and planning a winning dinner party.
A classic, silver photo frame never goes out of style for newlyweds, especially when it has the wedding queen herself – Vera Wang – attached to it. Larger frames are best suited to those who understand a couple’s style, but a luxe 5 x 7 desk frame will suit all tastes.
The perfect showcase piece to serve up everything from cakes and muffins to cheese plates, this gorgeous acacia wood serving board is paired with a show-stopping glass dome. It’s a modern take on the classic cake stand and will add a classy (and delicious) touch to any kitchen bench.
Crisp, soft, linen placemats go with everything. The design is simple but eyecatching and makes for a beautiful shower gift. The mats would also go beautifully with those dreamy gold leaf forks back up our list.
