Getting gifts for a bridal shower or your close friend who is heading to the alter can be difficult especially if you want to make sure it’s something that is meaningful and something she will like. Here are 5 gifts ideas that range from practical to relaxing.

1. Wedding Day Survival Kit

Wedding Guide

There are a lot of things that can happen on the wedding day that we might not want to think about happening. By putting together a Wedding Day Survival Kit, you can save the day with a few items that can handle nearly any situation that might come up. There are several companies that put some together from Beau-Corp or Kate Spade, but you can just as easily put one together yourself without much hassle. Take for instance this Pinterest picture above; these items cover just about everything that could be needed on the big day.


2. Embroidered Bridal Robe


There’s nothing like a good robe. Even better is a personalized robe for the big day. There’s a ton of options out there across Etsy and other places that allow you to choose between getting some for the bride and groom or a set for the bride and bridesmaids. This could be the perfect gift from nearly anyone that will make getting ready easy and nearly painless.


3. Subscription Box


Subscription boxes have become popular gifts, with many options. You can get a box that is geared towards someone’s specific interests or get a more general box. For a bride-to-be, try the women’s box from Birchbox or think about what her hobbies and likes are (ask yourself does she like to crafts? does she have a pet? does she love wine? etc…) and look at boxes geared towards those needs. Either way she is sure to love it.


4. Home Decorations


Anything from personalized pictures to awesome crystal vases to dress up any table or space or even new dishes so that she can entertain whenever she wants. Getting something that dresses up the home or brings practicality to her life, she will be sure to appreciate.


5. Spa Day


Nearly every woman loves to be pampered, especially future brides. Get her a relaxing spa day, so she can de-stress before the wedding. We have a ton of options here at A Moment’s Peace that range from a half day at the spa to a full day of relaxation and pampering. We can even cater to an entire bridal party.

Getting a gift for the bride doesn’t have to be hard. Nearly all of them will appreciate anything with a little thought whether it gives them some comfort or relaxation, takes one thing off their to do list, or brings some practical use along the way.
