Hi! I am organizing a bridal shower for one of my friends, and I cannot come up with ideas for prizes for winners of the games we’ll be playing. Of course I thought of box of chocolates type of thing, but I can’t think of anything else.
Does anyone have ideas? If it matters, the theme will be pampering party / under the sea.

I just threw a bridal shower for my FSIL so I know what you’re feeling! We had a price is right game so I bought a giftcard for a grocery store. We had a bingo game so I bought a target giftcard for the first winner and then I bought some notepads and magnet notepads from Michaels for $1 each as runner up prizes. Then we played a game called And the Bride Wore and we did another gift card for that. I figured if the prizes were good people would be more willing to participate in the games and it worked. I’ve also received things like cookie mix in a jar, candles, spa products (which would fit with your theme).

I have had great luck in the housewares sections of Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, and Homegoods. I just pick up a few things that are on sale (candles, cutting boards and cheese spreaders, coasters, knick-knacks, etc)… You kind find some cute stuff (and even get stuff in the wedding colors), and save some money! I also have gone to the dolor store and bought some nail polish, nail files, and mde mini-mani bags… hope this helps!

And the Bride Wore is a super fast quiz game that I used to get us started. After having one introduce themselves (we had a LOT of people from both sides: Bride and Groom) I had the bride quietly leave the room so no one would notice. She just went back into the kitchen area which wasn’t visible from the game area. I had quiz cards that I made and decorated with a cheap Michael’s stamp. It asked questions about what the bride was wearing that day. IE: What color is Bethany’s shirt/dress? Does she have her hair mostly up or mostly down? Etc, I think we had 10 questions and then I left a space at the bottom to list any additional details they noticed which I used as a tie breaker. The game was a lot of fun and only took 5 minutes from start to finish. I heard lots of positive feedback on the game.
