After all, there are countless things that a bride needs or wants for her wedding, and if you will be planning to give her a Christmas or holiday gift anyway, why not kill two bird with one stone? Here are some great holiday gift ideas for the bride-to-be.
One thing that every bride needs to complete her wedding ensemble is the perfect accessories.
The thing is that by the time everything else has been paid for, the bride may well find herself lacking the funds in her wedding budget to get all of those special finishing touches.
This is why wedding jewelry, headpieces, evening bags, and unique wraps can all make thoughtful gifts.
If you do not know exactly what the bride would like, check in with her mother or maid-of-honor.
Perhaps there is a lace shrug that matches her wedding gown that the bride is dying to have for the ceremony.
Or maybe she has picked out a dazzling pair of crystal earrings, and your gifts of wedding jewelry could complete the set for her.
If you are a bit nervous about matching the bride's taste in jewelry, a vintage beaded handbag always makes a fabulous gift, and it does not need to be an exact match to her gown.
For brides who have covered most of their basic wedding day needs, think about making a gift of some of the special extras which will make her day as elegant and stylish as possible.
A silver compact engraved with the wedding date is just the thing for the bride to slip in her bag for touch ups on the wedding day.
Another idea is to give her a special monogrammed cake topper for her wedding cake (be sure to find out exactly which style she likes by asking the mother of the bride or the baker).
Handcrafted Christmas or holiday gifts can be very thoughtful.
Think about what talents you have, and how you can apply them to create a one-of-a-kind gift for the bride.
Perhaps your talent is embroidery; a hand embroidered hankie for the bride would be a lovely idea.
Embroider her name and wedding date in baby blue thread so it can be her "something blue".
Experienced knitters can try their hand at a wispy wedding ring shawl, which is a wrap knit so finely that it can be pulled through the hold of a wedding ring (a man's size ring, anyway).
Not only would such a beautiful gift be wonderful for the wedding, but it would be a treasured keepsake.
Every bride-to-be experiences stress around planning a wedding.
Another great holiday gift idea is to treat her to a relaxing day at the spa or a private yoga lesson.
Alternatively, you could give her a gift certificate to her favorite salon to get a manicure and pedicure before the wedding.
This is something that any bride is sure to appreciate! Whether you are a friend or a family member, there are many terrific gift ideas for the bride-to-be in your life.
It can be a splurge or a small token of your affection, but you can be sure that the bride will love her holiday gift from you!
