June has been a popular month for weddings. It’s because many believe Juno, the goddess that protects marriage and childbearing, where the name of June came from.
Aside from that, in the Middle Ages, people believe that frequent bathing can increase the probability of contracting a disease. That’s why they only bathe twice a year, and one is in June. And since people usually smell nicer during this time, they usually decide to get married when everyone is the best version of themselves.
Any of these can be the reason why your close gift friend is getting married this June. But before the wedding, you might also be invited to the bridal shower. If so, you should also think of a gift as soon as possible.
If you need some gift ideas for the bridal shower, you should check the list below!
1. Spa treatment
Whether they hire a wedding planner or not, the few months before the wedding can still be stressful for the couple. And as the bride’s friend, you should think of things that can help her blow off some steam.
One of the popular bridal shower gifts is the spa treatment. You can ask the bride about her favourite spa and wellness centre, and book the best package she deserves. It’s up to you if you’re going to include another package for the groom.
On the other hand, you can make it two sessions that she can use before and after the wedding.
2. Journal/ wedding planner
As the bride, your friend might have a lot going on in her mind, so it would be perfect if she has a journal or wedding planner where she can write everything that needs to be done.
See if your friend is the type of person who’s more into digital journaling or the hand-written kind of person. But whichever is her go-to, there are various planner designs you can find online and in-store.
If you’re going to search on Pinterest or Instagram, the online planners usually cost almost the same as the hardcopy since the designs are created by various artists.
Are you thinking of giving the bride-to-be some accessories? It depends on your budget, but if you’re feeling a bit generous, you can gift her jewelry with Argyle pink diamonds. Don’t worry, you’re not the groom, so the diamonds don’t have to be huge.
Since you’re thinking of jewelry, you can choose if you want her to wear your gift on her wedding day or during their honeymoon trip.
On the other hand, if you choose to gift her a more casual design, you can look for designs that you guarantee she’ll like. For instance, if the couple plans to go to the beach, you can gift the bride a pair of dangling earrings perfect for the summer-themed honeymoon.
4. Bridal robe
Since it’s the bridal shower, gifts vary from things she can use every day to things she needs for around the wedding time.
On the morning of the wedding, it’s nice that the bride can wear a new robe while preparing for the big day. Although it doesn’t seem to be the top gift off people’s minds, it’s essential, especially since the preparation time means there’s a lot of photo taking.
5. Gift box
Can’t you decide on one thing as a gift for the bride-to-be? You can give her a gift box. It usually contains essentials depending on the theme you aim for.
For instance, if you want to arrange a care kit, you may include the things below:
- Hand sanitiser
- Lip balm
- Face masks
- Water bottle
- Stree ball
On the other hand, if you’re thinking of a bath-themed gift box, you may opt for these items:
- Bath bombs
- Bath soap
- Shampoo bar
- Essential oils
- Scented candles
But aside from the options above, there are other kinds of gift boxes you can find like a travelling kit.
Another generous gift for the lovely couple is the ticket for their honeymoon. It depends on where they want to go, but being the sponsor of their honeymoon means a lot. So if you’ve known them for quite a while now, this can be a gift they would gladly appreciate.
On the other hand, you can also give them tickets to a play, a museum, and an amusement park. As a close friend, you probably know what kind they’re interested in.
Does the bride believe in the somethings when getting married? A lot of people that if a bride has something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue, the wedding would be perfect. Originally, a silver sixpence in her shoe is included in But what do they mean?
Since these wedding beliefs had been around for centuries, the individual meaning attached to them may not be clear.
We hope this article helps you find the best gift you can give to the bride-to-be. If you have any other gift suggestions, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below!
