How to Pick the Perfect Wedding Gift For a Bride

List: Posted: 04/22/11

Choosing a wedding gift for a bride can be tough. Usually, when you know the bride rather than the groom, you want your wedding gift to reflect that relationship. What is the best wedding gift to offer, though?

One of the best things you can do when trying to choose a wedding gift for a bride is to check out her registries. These days, almost everyone who gets married has bridal registries. You can usually even access them online to browse through when you're searching for the perfect wedding gift. Sometimes it’s the best idea if you just buy a gift straight from the registry - it won't be a huge surprise, but the couple will be grateful for it nonetheless.

But what if you can’t afford any of the gifts on the registry, or you just want to make something more personal? Well, the wedding gift that a bride will love most is one that fits with her home and personality. Even if you don’t buy from a registry, you should look through it to get a general idea of what the bride is looking for in a wedding gift. You can probably get an idea of the colors she’s using to decorate her home and the types of items she likes best.

Use that information to craft a unique and creative wedding gift for your friend. For instance, you might have a sofa throw or scarf custom made in her favorite colors with her name on it. Other wedding gift options that can be bought at any kitchen shop or culinary store include a basket of spices and kitchen essentials she may have forgotten to register for. This is a simple wedding gift that any bride will appreciate when she’s trying to set up house.


For a best-friend bride, the very best gift you can give her are memories. In this case, you can print out a dozen photos that will remind her of the happiest times you had together as friends, and make these into an attractive framed collage or hanging picture set. Or purchase her a day away or weekend break that she and her new husband will both enjoy. With a little creativity, you won't find it hard to pick out something that she will love.
