Personalized Bridal Shower Gifts That (Literally!) Have Her Name on Them
A bride's registry is typically the place to start when searching for the perfect bridal shower gift. But if you're particularly close to the woman-of-the-hour—you're her sister, former college roommate, or all-around best friend—finding a shower gift that reads as more personal is an absolute must. We know that can be more difficult than it sounds, especially when you have a particular bride on your hands. The best course of action? Finding a unique and chic bridal shower gift that has her name on it—literally.
There's just something so thoughtful about a personalized bridal shower gift, complete with the bride's new name or monogram. Include anything from her childhood nickname to her soon-to-be initials and her face will light up, guaranteed. The reasoning is pretty simple. Monograms or customized gifts represent that extra step; you're going just a bit further to let your bride know that she's special to you. And when a girl's stuck in the (beautiful!) whirlwind that is the wedding countdown, there's nothing that means more.
That's why we've rounded up a complete series of personalized bridal shower gifts, destined to delight any and every type of bride-to-be. From bespoke straw totes (perfect for her Mexico honeymoon) and monogrammed stationery to custom designer candles and everything in between, we curated our list with luxury in mind. Whether you're gifting her something for her home, vanity, desk, or closet, these personalized presents are sure to make her feel like the most special girl in the room.
