Five Great Bridal Shower Gift Basket Ideas
Why not shower the bride-to-be with a special bridal shower gift basket? Putting together a gift basket for the future bride is really fun to do and it doesn’t break the bank. On top of that, the bride will love the time and thoughtfulness you’ve put into making her such a unique gift. These five bridal shower gift basket ideas will put you on the right path to creating your own unique bridal shower gift.
The Wedding Day Survival Kit
This is a must-have gift basket for any bride who has the jitters before her big day. How so? It will help soothe her nerves and prepare her for the wedding ceremony. Put together some necessities such as a wedding date planner, makeup, manicure set, a sewing kit and hair accessories. Include a little note of support so she knows you’ll be there for her throughout this special time.
The Candy Gift Basket
Any sweet tooth bride will love this gift basket since it’s filled to the brim with assorted candies and chocolate. Think of candy kisses, truffles, cupcakes and lollipops. Attach a personalized gift tag with hearts to symbolize the love between the happy couple and decorate two chocolate covered strawberries to reflect the bride and groom.
The Home Spa Gift Basket
Help the future bride relax by providing her with everything she needs for a home spa treatment. Pack your gift basket with plenty of luxurious bubble baths, facial masks, foot scrubs and scented soaps as well as massage lotions. The bride will appreciate a back massager, a lavender-scented bath pillow and pedicure kit. All of these items will help her unwind before her big day.
The Baking Gift Basket
The baking gift basket is ideal for the bride who is always busy in the kitchen or wants to learn how. To fill this up, you’ll need some recipe books, baking pans, a rolling pin, tea towels and some cute cookie cutters. Include some pre-packaged cupcake or muffin mixes; perhaps you can throw in some flour and eggs for good measure.
The Honeymoon Survival Gift Basket
Ask friends and family about the bride and groom’s chosen honeymoon destination and put together a survival gift basket to help them out. They’ll need the usual travel necessities such as sunscreen, travel guides and a tote bag but make sure you include a good book to read on the plane, two or three travel games and some delicious snacks.
Whatever gifts you decide to include in your gift basket, make sure they are family friendly. If you do want to give the bride some lingerie or romantic gifts, give the gift basket to her in private, especially if there’s a chance she’ll be embarrassed when opening your basket in front of family members.
You can be as creative as you like with your gift basket. You can also
make it even more beautiful by adding a cute ribbon or heart shaped gift
tag. Try to match the color of the basket with the wedding colors or buy
a basket that follows the bridal shower theme.
