7 Perfect Bridal Shower Gift Ideas for the Modern Bride
Bridal shower gifts for the bride who has it all.
Unique Bridal Shower Gifts that Make an Impression
Even savvy brides who have everything will appreciate these unique bridal shower gifts that put a contemporary spin on the classics.
1. Playful Pillows
Get a good laugh out of bridal shower gift ideas that use bed linens to make statement, like these “Mr. Right” and “Mrs. Always Right” pillows. Or, play it safe with simple and casual “Mr.” & “Mrs.” pillows for the family room sofa.
2. Personalized Gift Card
For bridal shower gift ideas that are petite, go for American Express® Gift Cards with the option to add the custom message For Your Wedding to any design. She can spend it on virtually anything her heart desires.
3. Coffee-Table Book of Honeymoon Locale
Honeymoon-related bridal shower gift ideas are a dime a dozen. But you’ll be the only one to bestow a beautifully bound book of photos and information about the couple’s exotic destination of choice, guaranteed. It’s an especially great option for second-time marriages (when the couple already has all the essentials) to get them geared up for their big trip.
- Can be used virtually anywhere in the U.S. where American Express Cards are accepted
- Safer than cash because the Card is replaceable if lost or stolen*
- Choose from a variety of designs appropriate for weddings
* Restrictions apply. See Cardholder Agreement.
4. Personalized Stamp
After all the bridal shower gifts come the thank-you notes. Make what can be a time-consuming process lots more fun with a custom stamp or embosser showcasing the new couple’s last name and address. Plus, if you have a practical streak to your gift-giving, the lucky couple can continue to use this present on their correspondence for years to come.
5. Formal Cake Servers
No matter where the wedding is taking place, it’s always nice to have something special to serve and sip with on the big day. Fancy cake servers are gorgeous, sophisticated bridal shower gifts that double as keepsakes after the wedding.
6. His & Her Mugs
Happiness is a hot cup of coffee or tea, especially when they’re served in quirky mugs with pouty lips and a robust mustache.
7. From Bride to Bob
Many women let their hair grow long leading up to the wedding to ensure they can achieve the style they want. But afterwards? Let the clipping begin! Grab her a gift certificate to her favorite salon. Or, if you’re not sure where she likes to go, get her a bridal-themed American Express Gift Card so she can get a cut and color on you when she returns from the honeymoon.
