Post Gift ideas? Reply with quote
What you should know:
Older cousin's wedding
I'm a bridesmaid
Bridal shower is this weekend

So, the question is.... does anyone have any ideas as to what I should get her for her bridal shower? She says she doesn't want any gifts, but... of course I'm going to get her something. I just don't know what. I'm a noob to this type of stuff... never been apart of a wedding before...

Someone please help, I'm desperate~ Preferably something affordable ($100 or less)...

Please and thank you!!!

what a lot of people do is go to victoria's secret and buy sexy lingerie. doesn't have to be sexy though, it can be a nice nightgown or something.

or some people like to give more practical gifts like cookbooks, spa treatments, beauty products, etc. not that sexy lingerie's aren't practical...but you know what i mean.

but from the many bridal showers i've been to, i'd say about 80% are VS lingerie's.

or since you are a bridesmaid, i know sometimes all the bridesmaids pool their money together and get 1 nice big gift for the bride. but that's really up to you guys.

Yeah, a lot of people suggested lingerie or something from VS... but, I think I like the idea of something more practical (like you said.. not that lingerie isn't practical Razz)...

I like the idea of a spa treatment, but because I'm in a different state than she is, I have no idea how to go about finding the right spa... how I would pick up the certificate, etc etc..

Ergh~ But, I also like the idea of a cookbook.. or beauty products. I will definitely look into that today!

Thank you sooo much~!

i like doing a naughty/nice gift!

aka when shes feeling naughty she can wear pretty lingerie, when shes feeling nice she can wear a comftie and soft silk pj set

does her bridal shower not have a theme? usually i cater it to the theme...

I know her sister ordered the invitation cards to have random rooms for my unni's house on the back of the invitation so people could get her things for the given room or something. But, unfortunately for me, I didn't know about it and never looked at the back of the invitation... and the invitation is no where to be found. I fail, yes, I know..

But, I like the pj set idea! Thank you~ I'll have to go look for some on Wednesday ^^

idk...i've been very anti-VS. the quality isn't that great...you can get much nicer quality lingerie/PJs for the same price or just a little bit more...VS is just more accessible

youre absolutely right~

if you want to spend the money, go to nordies~

BUT if youre on a budget, you can totally find something cute at nordies rack or places like marshalls, kohls, etc.

oh i miss shopping!
