The bride and groom gift exchange is a long standing wedding tradition that I personally love. It’s a great way to make your future spouse feel extra special on your wedding day. I love gift giving and will spend hours trying to find the perfect gift that fits the recipient. So for those of you who have trouble finding the perfect gift, don’t worry! I have already done the work for you. Here are my top 5 wedding day gifts for the bride that won’t waste your money. You are about to become the best groom ever!
1. Practical Gift for the Bride: Luggage Set
One of my favorite gifts for the bride on her wedding day is a luggage set. Good luggage can not be overstated enough and what better time to receive it than right before the most romantic trip of your life? My husband and I exchanged luggage sets for our wedding day gift exchange and I love mine. It was perfect for the honeymoon and made for a practical, but still beautiful, gift! This Steve Madden set is one of my favorites and is so highly rated.
2. Romantic Gift for the Bride: Robe
You can’t get much more bridal than this gorgeous Flora Nikrooz robe. It would make the perfect gift for your bride on her wedding day. She can wear it while she gets ready in the morning – creating the most romantic and beautiful pictures. Plus, you get to enjoy seeing her in it on the honeymoon!
3. Splurge Gift for the Bride: Supersonic Blow Dryer
Splurge alert! If you really want to spoil your bride on her wedding day, the Dyson Blow Dryer is the gift to choose. It dries crazy fast while preventing extreme heat damage and is cool to the touch. Plus, it has a quiet motor (my favorite feature, no loud noise to wake the babies or hubby up!). Aka – It puts other blow dryers to shame. There’s nothing better you can give a girl than making a daily task less of a hassle.
4. Classic Gift for the Bride: Jewelry
Jewelry is one of the most essential accessories for the Wedding Day. Complete her look with something special from you. It will be in every photo and every memory so pick wisely. Choosing a simple and romantic piece like this Kate Spade Pansy Bangle can fit perfectly with her look. Or pick some earrings with a hint of blue and give it to her as her “something blue” for the day. It’s a sweet and simple gift for the bride on her wedding day.
5. Sentimental Gift for the Bride: Perfume
One of the sweetest gifts I’ve heard of is to get a new perfume or cologne for your spouse on your wedding day. This way you will always remember the day with that scent and you can wear it for special occasions, like an anniversary, to bring back those memories. When choosing a scent for your bride, find out what she likes. Does she like warm scents with hints of vanilla? Or fresh and clean scents with hints of flowers? This Daisy Perfume by Marc Jacobs is always a safe bet. Better yet, make a date out of it and go to the store to test out perfumes and colognes. Pick a few favorites and then surprise each other with one on your wedding day. It’s a simple way to create memories that will last your whole life together.
Whatever gift you pick for your bride, she will love, because it came from you! But we think these gifts are a good starting point to get some ideas going – all wife approved. Don’t forget to get some pretty wrapping and a sweet love note to go along with it.
