Can you go in with some other people for a larger gift?

Hm, cash is kind of hard for a shower. Do you know the bride well? She might not know her registry has been so depleted, and if she doesn’t I’m sure she would LIKE to! If it’s just shower time and not yet wedding time, she should probably add a few more things. Or, at the very least, she could give you some info on what else she and her new hubby will like.

You can’t go wrong with a gift card to wherever they registered, though it is a bit on the boring side. Do you know if/where they’re HM’ing? Maybe you could arrange something like a couples massage or nice dinner for them (though that may be pricy).

I would say go with a gift card to one of the locations they are registered at and gift it with a nice candle (like Yankee Candle or something similar) from the same store. That way – if they don’t like the scent of the candle (there is a “Wedding Day” candle by Yankee Candle that is cute) they can return it and get credit towards something else in the store.

I know that Bed Bath and Beyond (if they are registered there by chance) has a large selection of candles and candle accessories.

What about a gift card to a restaurant in their town?  I’m sure they could use a date night before (or after) the wedding!

Gift card, or Lingerie- a neglige is always a good shower gift (everyone oohs and ahs, and the bride blushes)

My favorite gift is a date night gift. These can be tailored to any budget. More expensive options might be a gift certificate to a nice restaurant and a play. Cheaper options could be gift card to a yummy but less expensive restaurant and a local movie theater. Or make your own with a gift card for pizza delivery, microwave popcorn and a DVD (or RedBox rental gift card). Or go to the grocery and buy stuff for a picnic (try to buy things that won’t go bad too quickly) and put it in a nice basket.

i would say get her a gift card for BBB…. that way she can put it toward one of the higher priced items if she gets multiples…. that is what i would hope my guests would do.

In that case I would totally buy a bottle of grey goose and two martnini glasses! (or wine with wine glasses).

At my shower I LOVED it when people did this! It’s so boring opening gift after gift that you’re expecting – since you registered for it and saw that it was fulfilled the day before your shower. And (most) people ALWAYS need alcohol for entertaining, so it’s an awesome gift.

A gift certificate for a manicure or pedicure might be appreciated!  If she doesn’t use it for the wedding, I’m sure she’d splurge on herself sometime.

I put this suggestion on a similar post…what about a manicure, pedicure, or massage? I think that a bride-to-be would always appreciate some pampering to de-stress before the wedding.
