One of my favorite bridal shower gifts is a tote bag that they can use for the day of the wedding, and for travel on their honeymoon. I usually order custom matching luggage tags one in a manly color and one in girly, off etsy, and stuff it with goodies like just married flip flops, a bride tank top, or what have you. Another idea is a picnic basket or picnic cooler and you can put wine, salami, crackers, everything for a picnic but the cheese pretty much, inside of it.

@MrsJKH2be:  hmmm odd request but ok! Gifts are my thing! What are her hobbies likes and dislikes? For my bridesmaids I bought decrotive boxes from a craft store. For one ( my lovely lush lol) I bought little bottlesof nice vodka, one flavoured one plain and one with a jewel in the bottle. Those are going to rest on a knitted scarf im almost done with and I will be making a pretty scarf pin to go with it. I think boxes of smaller meaningful things are way more fun than one big generic thing

Is she registered anywhere? She might have some smaller things on her registry! 

A nice set of sheets for her bed should be pretty compact. I had a bridal shower close to my parents’ house that was a 3 hour drive for me… and I got a lot of traditional bulkier items like cookware but didn’t have trouble packing up the car to get home.

Print off the picture of her gift, and have it sent to her home, or set it up for in-store pickup.
