Creative Bridal Shower Gifts

A friend of mine recently asked me for some creative bridal shower gift ideas for her best friend (since my own bridal shower was not too long ago) and I thought I’d do a little write up of what came to mind. 

Some brides really prefer getting gifts from their registry, but I also think heartfelt and personalized gifts are so fun to get too (especially because there is a surprise element to them – let’s be honest, most brides check their registry regularly and know when someone has gotten something for them).

Here are some favorites that I found:


Personalized sign from mrcwoodproducts on Etsy (I got one for my best friend and she used it in her engagement pics, at her wedding and now it looks great in her beautiful kitchen).


Monogrammed chevron tote from Luxury Monograms. Fill it with goodies to be used on her honeymoon or a day of wedding survival kit!


Personalized journal as recipe book from Pinhole Press. Create the book with pictures of friends and family and have them send you their favorite recipes to print out and include in the book.


These personalized acacia slabs from West Elm are so cute! Have them monogrammed in the couple’s new monogram. Perfect for the friend who loves to entertain!


I just LOVE the colors and prints in these monogrammed plates from La Plates. The site has tons of other great personalized items too. These would be fun to hang on the wall, on a shelf, or for fun serving dishes. Lots of options.


I personally want one of these monogrammed necklaces from Moon and Lola so bad (*hint hint to the husband if you’re reading this)! You can find these at lots of other sites and on Etsy as well if you want to do some price searching.

What are some of your favorite ideas for creative shower gifts?
