I’m putting together a bag of goodies for a friends bridal shower gift. I wanted to do something fun instead of getting things straight off her registry, so am putting together a basket of fun wedding themed goodies. So far I have:
-wedding cake flavored vodka
-Lolita “I Do” wine glass
-“wedding cake” Yankee Candle
Anyone else have any other ideas to add? It’s 2 weeks away so I have to be able to get anything relatively quickly. Thanks in advance!

Oh that’s a fun idea. I’m not really sure what else you could add off the top of my head. I also saw someone making a honeymoon themed gift basket for their friend’s shower. I thought that was a neat idea as well.

“Just Married” or “I Do!” picture frame
Champagne with a pair of toasting flutes (they often come as a package set)

@lilbluebird: That’s a great idea! My mind went blank but her friend would def love a frame or a nice wedding album in the basket.
Also I know Tervis makes a set of tumblers that say bride & groom on it. They come as a set. They also make ones that say his and hers. =)
Also, maybe a nice little day of emergency kit for the big day? 🙂

How about a set of personalized stationary with her newly married monogram?

All these are great ideas! I will definitely add a picture frame in the mix. I also found “Wedding Tea” that I’m going to add: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000NL3X8M/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&m=A2TZFZAEO1EXH3
I love the stationary idea, but I don’t think I have time to have it made unfortunately 🙁 Maybe I will just get a box of nice Papyrus stationary or somthing though, that is always useful!

I know Michaels sells luggage tags that say MR. and MRS. on them – maybe you could get those if she’s planning a honeymoon right after the wedding. You can also always get her those stickers to put on the bottoms of her shoes that say I DO for her and SHE’S MINE for him (also at Michaels). Bottle of bubbly is always fun too…… I’d say you could get her a personalized hanger for her dress, but you probably wouldn’t have time to order one of those. Sounds like a cute gift – I didn’t know there was such a thing as wedding cake flavored vodka!

I made a friend a necklace to put in her basket….it has a Engagement ring charm, “I DO” charm, and silver chain. In the end mine was only like $5 total and super cute, but you can buy an actual sterling silver chain there to if you want higher quality.
Maybe a bottle of wine to go with your wine glass? They may have bride inspired labeled ones if you google around. Or you could make a label for it.
Nailpolish (that has a “bridal” name for it)
Silk flowers (in her wedding colors)

Anything that has either MR & MRS or BRIDE & GROOM on it.
Personally, one of my “bridal” purchases is going to be the Bride Robe that is made by Victoria Secret.
Figure it will be perfect for the timeframe when I am getting ready… post shower, and doing my hair & makeup etc

Sounds like a great gift so far. Other ideas I have seen are Mr and Mrs pillowcases that might be a good and practical touch. You should be able to order online quickly,
