I was invited to a bridal shower this week. Originally everyone was supposed to bring a recipe for a recipe book, but now I just got an “update” text from the hostess saying:
“We are doing a ‘wishing well.’ Please bring a small somthing for Bride to keep beginning with your initials. For example, Irene Thomas might bring an Ice Tray, etc. Bride will have tons of fun guessing who brought what.”
Now I don’t know what to bring. I was going to go today and buy something from her registry, but now I need to find something with my initials. I’d like to use my married initials, which are now AM.
Anyone have any ideas?
The only ones I’ve thought of are things like “A Mixer,” and my mom said “A Magnet”.. now there’s a cheap shower gift lol.

Mugs with their new initial? Mat for outside the door? GC to a restaurant that starts with an M? Bottle of nice wine whose name starts with an M (Meiomi Pinot Noir is delicious for a red wine drinker)? A decorative mirror? Mixing bowls?

At the showers I have been to, the wishing well is seperate from the regular gift. The ones I have seen are cleaning supply wishing wells, where everyone brings a cleaning supply in addition to the shower gift.
For your intial…
Place Mat, Mugs, mop, something martha stewart (same first initial as your last?)

I just texted the hostess back asking if she meant for the wishing well gift to be the actual shower gift or not. I’m so confused because invites went out for this 3 days ago, the shower is tomorrow.. very rushed and everything is a little unclear.
I was thinking a mixer would be good because I know she’s probably registered for one, it would be a more substantial gift and it starts with M.. but if the wishing well is separate then I may just get her a regular gift and then some cute fridge magnets or something for the wishing well.

I just heard back from the hostess. She said the wishing well should be just something small, like from the doller store. She said for AM something like, “awesome makeup” or “adorable magazine.” I responded and asked what about magnets and she said: Yes! Cute.
So now.. magnets and shower gift lol.

Fun! We do this a lot in our area. Usually the Wishing Well consists of gadgets for the bride since no one seems to get those as gifts without the wishing well.

I love the wishing well shower idea and plan to use it now for an upcoming shower. (The invitations will be mailed out more than 3 days in advance, though…lol)

I went to the shower tonight and it was tons of fun. Just to update on what I ended up going with, since my initials are AM I ended up buying her an apple martini mix! (Plus a sandwich grill that she was registered for lol). Anyway, thanks for all the good ideas, in the end my husband was the one who came up with the Apple Martini!
