Being a bride is one of the most exciting (and stressful) times in a girl’s life but getting gifts for a bride doesn’t have to be. Today I’m rounding up some great gift ideas for brides. A few of these items are things I’ve purchased myself and love or gifts I would have loved to receive! Keep in mind your bride’s tastes and favorites as your thinking about gift ideas for her.
One of the gifts I received after we got engaged was actually a box of goodies from my mom. She picked an adorable decorative box and filled it with a coffee mug, Bride water cup, champagne glasses and a few bridal magazines. Personalized gifts such as this are always a great way to go but here are a few gift ideas for brides in case you’re looking for an easier or more cost effective route to take for gifting.
Kate Spade Say Yes “Mrs” Studs | I am a huge fan of anything that’s Kate Spade and I absolutely love these adorable Mrs. stud earrings. These gold earrings are super affordable and will make the perfect accessory for the bride on her honeymoon and through her first few months as a newlywed.
Frank Regards “Bride Vibes” T-Shirt | One of the best gifts I actually bought myself (treat yo self, amiright?) is this Bride Vibes t-shirt from Frank Regards. This site is filled with great gift ideas but I highly suggest picking up this t-shirt for the bride-to-be in your life. I’m actually thinking about wearing this with a tulle skirt for my bridal shower in January!
QALO Silicone Wedding Ring | Justin and I just recently purchased silicon rings from QALO and they are perfect for the outdoorsy or fitness brides out there. I’m obsessed with mine and even find it so comfortable that I sleep in it! You can even pick up this adorable gift set that comes with a few different rings. Make sure to size up for the perfect fit!
R. Riveter Brown Leather Wallet | I have raved about this wallet before but this is seriously the perfect gift for any bride (or anyone really) but especially those who are military brides. I’ve talked about why I love R. Riveter before, especially as a MILSO, but this wallet is PERFECT for someone who is about to transition into the military life. The external ID slot on the back of the wallet means never having to freak out or hunt for your ID when trying to get on post.
Photo Canvas of Engagement Pictures | Something else I’ve been raving about recently is the photo canvases we recently got from Walgreens. Not only can you pick these babies up the same day as you order them but they also come in boxes that make these a seriously effortless gift idea for a bride. Snag one of their engagement pictures, a picture of the proposal, or old picture from Facebook and call it a day!
I Am Bride by Laura Willcox | As I mentioned, wedding planning can be stressful. I picked up this book exactly for those moments. It is a hilarious take on wedding planning and really puts things into perspective when you’re having a stressful wedding related day.
The Newlywed Cookbook | Justin and I actually included this on our registry but I love the idea of having a cookbook dedicated specifically to the first year of marriage. You could throw in some recipe cards or some fun sticky notes so the happy couple can mark their favorite recipes for future reference!
Bride Gold Sequin Tote | Whether you’re rushing off wedding dress shopping or hitting up local bridal expos for vendors, being a bride requires toting (pun intended) around a ton of stuff and having complete use of both hands. I love the look of this Bride tote and think it would be perfect for housing all of the necessary wedding planning things!
Future Mrs. Gift Box | When I was looking at wedding related stuff on Amazon recently I came across this adorable gift box filled with bride related goodies. Like the personalized gift from my mom, this would make a great engagement or holiday gift for a bride.
Kate Spade I Do Leather Passport Holder | What better way to show off the fact that you’re a newlywed at the airport than with this adorable passport holder? I don’t even have a passport yet but I may already have purchased this cutie… oops.
Alo Yoga PVC Yoga Mat | A yoga mat is a must have for anyone who loves to workout at home but isn’t something we necessarily want to buy ourselves. Gifting a bride the perfect yoga mat can help her to stay motivated to achieve her pre-wedding fitness goals.
Monogrammed Lilly Pulitzer Skipper Popover | My favorite thing on this list and something that’s on my own Christmas list is this Monogrammed Lilly Pulitzer popover. You can actually design your own on Lilly’s website. Gifting your bride her first item with her new monogram is something she is sure to cherish for years to come!
