I’m going to my fiance’s best friends fiancee’s bridal shower, and I want to do something clever and creative with the gift for her. I know a lot of people who have made the towel “wedding cakes” and I really like that idea, but I was looking for something maybe a little more different and not as common. Anyone have any ideas of something fun I can do with the gift?

I would pick something off her registry, then build on it. Get a lovely basket-
If you buy a blanket, it becomes breakfast in bed- a split of champagne, a coffee grinder or night at the movies- with popcorn, a DVD, wine
Towels- a spa day- add pumice, loofah, soap, candles etc
Tablecloth- napkins, pasta, sauce , wine
Momogrammed soaps from Pottery Barn
A personalized platter from Etsy

Pick something off her registry and wrap it really cutely.

You can maybe buy a picnic basket and in it include a blanket, a bottle of win, and some personalized baskets.
But I like what Julies said in that buy something from her registry and build on it!

How involved are you in the bridal shower?
Would you be able to set up a scavenger hunt there with a few things?

I had a shower recently and there were two special “different” gifts that I loved:
1. A co worker got me a basket and put tons of stuff for a medicine cabinenet and things we will need for our new home (me and My Fiance are moving in to a new apartment)
2. My Fiance doesn’t eat gluten so a friend got our mixing bowls off the registry but then added gluten free baking mixes and a wisk and wrapped it cute.
It’s definitely sweet when someone gets you something from your registry but puts a spin on it!
