You need a gift for the bride to be? Maybe you've been invited to her bridal shower, or perhaps you're a bridesmaid, or maybe you and your workmates want to get together and buy a special gift for a colleague to celebrate her upcoming wedding. These are all good reasons to buy the bride a gift, and up until now, these are all good reasons to panic!
So if you're stuck for ideas on what to give the bride to be, worry no more because we've come up with a list of 10 of the best bride-to-be gift ideas (even if we do say so ourselves). Some are cute, some are fun, many are practical but all of them are thoughtful and stylish (of course).
So let's get cracking!
Sometimes you need to make life a bit easier. You need short cuts to save time and money particularly if you're planning and paying for a wedding. If you've got a budget (that you've secretly already blown) then you might be on the look out for a few creative tips for wedding ideas that will help save a few dollars, but without compromising on style.
So, if you love the idea of gorgeous "be my bridesmaid?" biscuits or perhaps personalised wedding favour biscuits to thank your guests, but don't want to pay $5 a biscuit, then read on because this guide will show you how to make personalised cookies for under 50 cents each! Yep! And the best part of all is that there is no baking required - just do-it-yourself, inexpensive biscuits that are also perfect for wedding favours, baby showers and hen's nights. So what are you waiting for?
So you're getting married soon and you want to give your mates something to thank them for keeping their mouths shut years of loyalty and friendship. Your partner is giving their nearest and dearest something special, and you want to do the same. But where to begin?
Google 'groomsmen gift' and you'll be confronted with pewter mugs with "GROOMSMEN" engraved on the front (super useful!), bullets (yes bullets) with "GROOMSMEN" engraved into the side of them, or maybe bottle opener with, you guessed it, "GROOMSMEN" engraved into it.
Enough already, it's got to stop! NO MORE BOGAN GROOMSMEN GIFTS!
Not wanting to state the obvious, but weddings are expensive (Sherlock!). If you're in the process of planning one, or are involved in one or worse yet, paying for one, then you're going to want to read on.
If weddings are not in your future, but a 21st, baby shower or corporate event is, that is, anywhere where it's customary, or just plain nice, to give a little something to guests to thank them for celebrating with you, then yep, you should probably read on too.
Not sure if you've been lucky enough to experience it, but sometimes, if you stay at a swanky hotel, there's a fancy bowl of fresh fruit or a basket of goodies perched on a coffee table waiting for you when you enter your hotel room. It's terribly exciting! Sometimes the hotel might organise it for you for an anniversary or special event in which case you go for it! Other times sadly, it is trickery and deception, and just like a spring loaded mini bar, one way or another you know you're gonna pay for it! But let's just stick with the positives shall we?
