Navigating the proper gift-giving etiquette of a modern wedding is tough. These days, no two weddings are exactly alike, which means the lead-up to the big day may or may not involve a bridal shower, couples shower, engagement party, bachelor party, or bachelorette party. If you have been invited to a bridal shower or couples shower, it is good form to bring a gift to the party. Generally speaking, you can pick something off the same registry where you purchased their wedding gift. Some people even like to stick to a theme, and pick a shower gift and wedding present that are related in some way. For example, you might purchase a new set of bakeware for the shower to foreshadow your wedding gift of a new mixer.

Speaking of themes, some brides today are throwing themed bridal showers. In situations like these, brides often ask that guests bring gifts that are tied to a central theme. A bride might want only lingerie gifts, or only items for her new kitchen. She might even ask for items that are all in her favorite color. The hostess of the shower should be able to furnish you with any details you need about theme or etiquette.

Generally speaking, you should bring the gift to the shower itself, unless it is too large to move yourself, or if the item is backordered or pre-ordered for later delivery. In terms of budget, you should expect to spend around $50. That number may be higher or lower, depending on a number of factors. Close friends and family often spend much more than $50. In some cases, a group of friends or family members will pool their financial resources to purchase a big ticket item from the bride’s wish list. But not all gifts ned to be expensive to be meaningful. If you are experiencing financial hardship, a heartfelt homemade gift can be just as meaningful for the bride-to-be.

But what do you do when the happy couple hasn’t registered anywhere? What if you want to give the bride something unexpected? Or what if every item in their registry has already been purchased by another friend or family member? That’s where our list comes in. Whether the bride is throwing a “girls only” event, or sharing host duties with her partner, our guide is packed with tons of unique and cool gift ideas for the modern bride. We’ve included suggestions for “classic” gifts like kitchen items and lingerie, as well as a few surprise items that are perfect for that hard-to-shop-for bride. Our gift guide includes many gifts for $25 or less, as well as more lavish gifts for the bride that’s close to your heart.

Whether you’re shopping for a bride, or you’re a bride yourself who is stumped about what to register for, our creative list can help you out. Read on to get some amazing bridal shower gift ideas.

Traditionally, a “hope chest” was a piece of furniture where an unmarried woman would store her trousseau and other items for her eventual life as a married woman. Items such as clothing, table linens, towels, bed linens, or home goods would be stored in the chest before marriage. If you want to give her traditional gift, this cedar-lined chest makes a great hope chest. Cedar wood has long been used in clothing storage furniture, since the wood’s natural aroma helps to repel insects. This chest also ensures she’ll have a place to store at least some of the other gifts she’ll get from the shower. If you want to highlight the historical role of the hope chest, toss in a copy of the 1917 book The Hope Chest, a vintage wedding guide to preparing a bridal trousseau.

The main point of a bridal shower is to provide the happy couple with items for their life together. If you want to update their house and simplify their life, a smart home system can automate lights, thermostats, smoke alarms, and even door locks. One smart home system we like is Wink. The Wink hub is the piece of technology that lets all the other smart home items talk with one another, allowing you a single place to control items from multiple manufacturers. You can control many different smart home items from the Wink app on your phone. You can browse a full list of connected home devices that are Wink-compatible here. Examples of smart home items that are compatible with the Wink hub include the Quirky smart outlet, Quirky + GE smart air conditioner, Nest smoke alarm, and Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat.

(Gourmia)

Sous-vide cooking is a simple method of cooking that’s getting more and more popular with home cooks. Previously only used in the kitchens of top chefs, cooking sous vide involves placing ingredients in a sealed plastic bag, and simmering the bag in water for hours or even days. The resulting meat, fish, veggies, and poultry cooked in this manner are incredibly tender, with flavors that penetrate deep inside the ingredients.

The most important thing a home cook needs to cook sous-vide is an immersion circulator, which heats the water and circulates it to keep the temperature consistent. This immersion circulator is affordable, and has an easy-to-read display. We like this immersion circulator better than a whole sous-vide water bath because it has a smaller footprint. And because it can be clipped to pretty much 3.5 gallon pot they already own, it saves money, too. A copy of Immersed: The Definitive Guide To Sous Vide Cooking wouldn’t go amiss, either.

Want to learn more about cooking sous-vide before you buy them a gift? Browse our guides to the best sous vide machines and the best immersion circulators.

Quesadillas aren’t really all that hard to make, but this handy quesadilla grill manages to make an easy food even easier. The press pre-marks the quesadilla with equal wedges, so it’s easy to break apart and share. Cleanup is very quick, and the unit can be stored upright to save counter space.

When there’s nothing left on the registry (or at least, nothing left that you can afford), you might need to go off list. When that happens, we recommend a crepe pan. It’s a unique, niche item that probably wasn’t on their registry to begin with, but it’s a versatile piece of cookware that they’ll be glad to own. Whether they’re super foodies who would love to make crepes at home, or more casual cooks that will probably just use the pan for making extra crispy grilled cheese, this nonstick pan is something that will get a lot of use. Consider pairing it with a crepe cookbook. If you think they’d prefer a standalone unit, as opposed to a simple pan, you might also want to browse our guide to the best crepe makers.

(Ruzishun)

Bridal shower etiquette generally allows for sexy gifts like lingerie, but not explicitly sexual gifts like a vibrator. You should save more “naughty” gifts for the bachelorette party, if you are invited (for tips on picking a sexy bachelorette party gift, check out our guide to the best sex toys). So while “adult” gifts are generally considered too risqué for a bridal shower, lingerie is fair game, particularly if you opt for “bridal” lingerie in various shades of white. One option we love for a shower gift is the “nightwear” negligee from Ruzishun, pictured above. The shape of the bust, combined with empire waist ribbon, create a figure-flattering silhouette that strikes a balance between sexy and romantic.

Want to get her something with more color? We really like these colorful babydoll negligees.

(KitchenAid)

If the bride-to-be has a job that requires early mornings and long hours, coffee is probably an important part of her daily routine. Fresh-ground coffee has more flavor, and burr grinders are preferable to blade grinders because they create a more even grind.

We like this burr grinder from KitchenAid for several reasons. Firstly, the jars are glass, which minimizes that annoying static cling you’ll get with plastic grind containers. There are 15 different grind settings, but all are relatively low RPM. The grind is still quick, but not so intense that the beans are overheated and start to lose flavor. Additionally, this unit is beautifully designed, so they won’t mind leaving it out on the counter.

Not sure if this is the right grinder for the happy couple? Browse more options in our guide to the best burr coffee grinders.

If a couple only has one good knife in their house, it should be a chef’s knife. This multi-tasking tool is ideal for all kinds of kitchen tasks. This eight inch knife is made from Damascus steel with a striking, hand-hammered finish. The blade is made from a “Japanese super steel” known for its edge retention, so the knife will stay sharp for years. These knives are produced in Seki City, Japan, known as “the capital of samurai sword manufacturing.”

Now, some bridal shower superstitions say that giving a knife is bad luck, unless you include a penny in the gift wrap. The penny counteracts the knife, which some believe can “cut” the marriage apart. If you opt to get a knife for a superstitious bride, make sure to tuck a penny inside your gift box. You should then give the penny back to them, essentially “buying” the knife from them and negating any potential bad luck.

Can’t afford a fancy knife? How about a cool magnetic kitchen knife holder instead?

(Casina Rossa)

There are lots of superstitions surrounding bridal showers, including the idea that using any bridal shower gifts before the wedding is bad luck. Another superstition states that the first gift the bride opens at her shower is the first gift that should be used in her home after she is married, for good luck. Since one of the tasks a new wife is likely to do after her honeymoon is cook a meal, a gift of gourmet salts would be a nice gift for the bride to open first at her shower. This is also nice for those who believe in the “don’t use it before your wedding” superstition, since salt will keep for months or years without deteriorating.

This collection of salts adds a punch of flavor to savory foods, or a balancing hit of brininess to sweet dishes. A similar gift idea would be a selection of flavored olive oils.

Each mattress consists of a top comfort layer of premium latex with a support layer of high-density memory foam. These hand-sewn mattresses are made with two proprietary materials that are rarely found together: a soft latex and a firm memory foam. The resulting mattress is great for couples who need a pliant-yet-firm sleeping surface. Need more support? You might be interested in our guide to the best mattresses for back pain.

A spice rack is a classic bridal shower gift. This rack is a little different from classic spice rack shapes, which makes it perfect for brides who appreciate unique details. The spice rack has 16 different canisters, and each one is easy to refill. Speaking of refills, the price of this spice rack includes five years of free spice refills, which is a great added perk.

Shopping for a bride who has a very small living space? She might prefer on-door spice racks, as opposed to a bulky rack that takes up space in a cabinet or on the countertop. These “spice gripper clips” are a nice alternative to consider.
