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.
1. Building Our Life Together Engraved Hammer
This sweet addition to the household toolbox will remind the happy couple that they are truly building a life together. This hammer is fully functional, and not merely a decorative item.
If they don’t already own a toolbox, this Stanley 65-piece homeowner’s tool kit would be a nice alternative to a single engraved hammer.
Price: $39.99 (20 percent off MSRP)
Finding the right engagement gift can be tough, especially since very few couples register for engagement gifts in the same way that they register for wedding presents. We're here to help with 50 clever and unique gift ideas.Click here to read more
2. ‘Two in the Kitchen: A Cookbook for Newlyweds’
Cooking together helps create lifetime bonds. Whether the bride-to-be and her partner are solid cooks, or need a little help in the kitchen, this romantic cookbook is a great gift idea. It’s packed with recipes, with simple steps that can be easily split between two people. The cookbook also has a human touch, thanks to stories from real newlywed couples about their love story, their favorite foods, and tips for working together in the kitchen.
Not sold on this Williams-Sonoma cookbook? The cookbook One Pan, Two Plates: More Than 70 Complete Weeknight Meals for Two is another nice option to consider.
Price: $23.55 (33 percent off MSRP)
3. Coaster Cedar Chest With Lock
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.

4. Wink Connected Home Hub
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.
Price: $69.97 (21 percent off MSRP)
5. Gourmia Digital Sous Vide Pod Immersion Circulator
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.
Price: $129.99 (48 percent off MSRP)
6. Philosophy ‘Here Comes the Bride’ Kit
If you want to get something special just for the bride, this gift set from Philosophy is a lovely option. It includes travel-friendly versions of the company’s best beauty products, which she can use the morning of the wedding, or while on her honeymoon. The set features “purity made simple” one-step facial cleanser, “hope in a jar” original formula moisturizer for all skin types, “amazing grace” perfumed shampoo, bath and shower gel, body lotion, and the company’s famous microdelivery facial peel. You can browse more beauty products from Philosophy here.
Price: $32 (9 percent off MSRP)
7. ICE Orb Harmony Floating Bluetooth Speaker
This new version of the classic ICE Orb speaker comes in a trendy new champagne color. If the couple is known for their love of music or cool gadgets, this might end up being their favorite gift at the shower. This Bluetooth speaker offers omnidirectional sound in an incredibly cool levitating design. The Harmony can also be used individually as portable speaker, without the base.
8. ‘The Travel Book: A Journey Through Every Country in the World’
Want to help the bride-to-be plan her honeymoon, or inspire her with trip ideas for their first anniversary? This cool book from Lonely Planet features a short blurb on every country in the world. The book contains info on 229 countries, and includes 817 amazing photographs that will inspire wanderlust in even the most committed of homebodies.
Price: $18.75 (38 percent off MSRP)
9. Trisha Yearwood Cottage Precious Metals 14 Piece Non-Stick Ceramic Cookware Set
A new cookware set is a common bridal shower gift. What makes this set uncommon is the healthy ceramic non-stick interior, combined with cool copper-inspired styling and dishwasher-safe design. If you want to get the couple a whole new kitchen, toss in some bamboo cutting boards or a new knife set.
Price: $107 (11 percent off MSRP)
10. Bubble Waffle Maker by Cucina Pro
Waffle irons are a common wedding gift or bridal shower gift. Belgian-style waffles are great, but there’s something to be said for the crispy, airy texture of a “bubble waffle.” If you want some other options to consider, you could go for a heart-shaped waffle maker or a waffle bowl maker.
Price: $44.99 (25 percent off MSRP)
11. Hamilton Beach Quesadilla Maker
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. The nonstick surface will definitely appeal to anyone who has ever had to scrape a gooey mess of charred cheese off a regular pan. A similar product to consider would be this countertop pizza maker from Betty Crocker.
Price: $24.53 (18 percent off MSRP)
12. Hamilton Beach Toastation 2-Slice Toaster & Mini Oven
Can’t choose between the toaster oven and toaster on their wedding registry? Why not get them a multi-tasking appliance that gives them the best of both worlds? The “Toastation” offers the pop up design of a regular toaster, combined with a small oven that’s perfect for cooking small batches of fries or heating up leftovers.
Not sure if this is the right gift for them? A new coffee maker is another option to consider.
Price: $34.97 (42 percent off MSRP)
13. Cuisinart Chef’s Classic Nonstick Hard-Anodized 10-Inch Crepe Pan
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.
Price: $24.99 (50 percent off MSRP)
14. Ruzishun Women’s Sexy Lingerie White Lace Nightwear Set
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.
Price: $12.77 (19 percent off MSRP)
15. KitchenAid Burr Coffee Grinder
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.
Price: $249.99 (17 percent off MSRP)
16. MLB Baseball Bat Electric Wine Opener
She loves wine. He loves baseball. Play to both of their tastes with this fun gift. This electric wine opener is available with the logo of any MLB team. It’s a great gift for couples who love parties and entertaining. If you want to see less “sporty” options, check out more styles in our guide to the best wine openers.
Price: $39.99 (20 percent off MSRP)
17. VIZIO SB3821-C6 38-Inch 2.1 Channel Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer
If the couple doesn’t have a proper TV set up, their bridal shower is the perfect occasion to make their living room more comfortable. This affordable sound bar gets great reviews, and features a wireless subwoofer and integrated Dolby and DTS audio technologies. In addition, the built-in Bluetooth allows you to wirelessly stream music from your phone, tablet, or computer. You can browse more tech gifts from VIZIO here.
18. Sur La Table Gift Cards
Shopping for a couple with lots of kitchen stuff on their registry, but nothing in your price range? These gift cards can be used to purchase gourmet food, cookware, dinnerware, cutlery, kitchen appliances, and other home goods. Even better, the couple can use the cards to pay for cooking classes, which can be a fun way for them to blow off steam during the stress of wedding planning.

19. Vremi Super Power Stainless Steel Body Professional Blender
Blenders are a very common bridal shower gift or wedding gift. This model is a nice option for those who want to select a nicer model, but at a price point that’s significantly lower than a Vitamix. The Vremi blender has an extra large blend jar, which makes it easy to whip up a big batch of sauce or smoothies for a crowd. It also crushes ice in a jiffy. The slender, sleek design looks great on a countertop or wet bar.

Price: $97.50 (35 percent off MSRP)
20. Rosewill 2.5 Quart White 1100W Multifunction Electric Air Fryer
Everybody loves fried food, but nobody loves the mess. This contained air frying system looks modern and sleek, and keeps aerosolized oil from getting all over the kitchen (and all over the cook). To learn more about air fryers, read our air fryer vs. deep fryer comparison guide.
Price: $99.99 (50 percent off MSRP)
21. Shun Premier Chef’s Knife
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?

23. Shark Bagless Navigator Freestyle Cordless Stick Vacuum

Ideal for both carpets and bare floors, this is an especially nice model for households with pets. If you’re shopping for pet owners, another option to consider is a robot vacuum.

Turntables are back in a big way, and an increasing number of couples are requesting turntables on their wedding registries.

Consider tossing in some of the couple’s favorite albums on vinyl to complete your gift.
Price: $103.85 (13 percent off MSRP)

For the couple who loves wine and entertaining, this handsome decanter is the perfect vessel for sharing wine or port with dear friends. Made from lead-free crystal, this decanter looks stunning, and has ample room to decant an entire bottle of wine in one go.

If this gift seems a little small on its own, consider pairing it with an additional massage candle, lingerie, or a book on sensual massage.
Price: $13.41 (26 percent off MSRP)
28. Pivotal Living Bluetooth Smart Scale
If the bride and groom are both trying to lose a little weight before the ceremony, a Bluetooth smart scale is a nice way to help them meet their fitness goals.

33. Casina Rossa Gourmet Sea Salt Gift Pack
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.

It’s classic, refined, and not too “frou frou” for modern brides. Each setting includes a dinner plate, salad plate, bread and butter plate, teacup, and tea saucer.
