Does she have a registry, usually you get something off of that.  Unless it’s a themed shower like lingerie or kitchen or something.

Have they registered? I would try to get something off the registry.

If not, how about a frilly apron, some of those fancy-looking dishwashing gloves, a cookbook, and some utensils.

Shop from the registry! Even if you don’t know exactly where she’s registered, weddingbee has a great registry finder (go to the home page and scroll down the right-hand column until you see it). Not getting something on the registry is risky because one, you might duplicate a gift, and two, she might not need/want it.

If you can’t find a registry, and you ask around without any luck, a gift card to a major store like Bed Bath and Beyond or Target would be nice (I got a few of those at my shower, and they definitely were appreciate!).

ask the hostess if there’s a theme to the shower or if the bride is registered. that’s the best option – or failing, that, i’ve sometimes picked off things from the wedding registery too (if she doesn’t have a separate bridal shower one)

1) her registry

2) a cute apron like someone posted above

3) gift cards. Hey, they’re practical!

@ bluebutterfly: Yep, you get a gift for both occasions. Although technically, I’ve heard that a gift is not required for the actual wedding, but personally, I think it would be rude to not give a give (for the wedding, it’s often cash or a registry gift).

However, a gift for a shower is required, since that’s the whole purpose of the shower 🙂

I generally stick to the registry for showers and weddings, unless I REALLY know the bride.  I feel like people appreciate getting things from their registries and tehre’s less confusion about what to buy.

@bluebutterfly – Your gift sounds perfect and really sweet!  I have always gone with something off the registry for both a shower and the wedding, but often for the shower I will do what you are doing and personalize it in some way.
