Whether you’re planning a wedding or just attending one, chances are you are going to some wedding showers. And that means you need to bring a gift. Going on their registry is a great way to get them something they want, but what if everything in your price point is taken already? What if you just don’t like what’s on the registry? Here are some great off-the-registry shower gifts she’ll love.
SHOWER GIFTS SHE’LL LOVE TO WEAR
How cute is this denim jacket for the bride-to-be? MOD Party will customize it and the bride will love it for years to come.
There’s usually at least one guest at the bridal shower who likes to make the bride blush with a lingerie gift. La Maison d Alexandrine makes sexy and pretty lingerie with many tasteful options so it can be opened in front of grandma (without making the bride turn a shade of red).
There’s something so cozy about a cotton terry bathrobe, and it makes for the perfect shower gift. This Martha Stewart Robe is priced really well and available in a variety of colors.
SHOWER GIFTS SHE’LL LOVE IN BEAUTY
It’s a shower right, so how about great gifts for the bath?
This BARR & CO Soap Shop Bath Soak Sampler has mineral salts in a variety of scents to relax even the most stressed-out wedding planning couple.
Your wedding and all the events that lead up to it (including that very 1st ring selfie!) call for pretty nails. Give the guest of honor Olive & June’s The Perfect Match so they can try out lots of their best-selling shades in time for the big day. The set includes 10 shades of 7-free polish (that means free of harsh chemicals) in a mix of sheers, classics and neutrals, and a Top Coat. (For more on this amazing clean beauty brand, check out our interview with Olive & June’s Founder.)

TRADITIONAL BRIDAL SHOWER GIFTS
For those of you that want to gift a more traditional item, we love this Silver Lining Wooden Bowl with 2 Bowls & Spoons from Inspired Generations. Great for casual get-togethers or more formal soirees, this is practical and fits in with any style of home décor.
A FUN SHOWER GIFT
Give the bride a personalized gift by having a custom robe or champagne flutes that they can use for their bachelorette and getting ready on the day of the wedding. These options below from Happily Chic Designs can be totally customized and the robes come in an array of colors.
For a unique and really fun gift, we found this S’mores Maker from Macy’s. It has a flameless electric heater that toasts the marshmallows, and a tray with 4 compartments to hold the graham crackers, chocolate and mallows. It includes 2 stainless steel roasting forks, so all you need are the crackers and the sweets and you’re good to go. Perfect for couples to enjoy with or without guests.
