As a guest, you probably have a number of summer weddings and wedding-related events on your calendar. We know you're busy, which is why we wanted to make shopping for gifts for each party a little bit easier. Attending a bridal shower this season? My five favorite presents are the perfect way to shower the bride-to-be right now.
Vitamix 5200 Blender
From smoothies and soups to seed butters and even non-dairy milks, the Vitamix 5200 Blender from Amazon's Wedding Registry really can do it all. With an endless number of different ways to use it, this is the perfect multi-tasking investment for the bride-to-be. And the best part? It can clean itself in 30-60 seconds so the bride can get back to enjoying the newlywed life.
I love all things Chilewich. Their placemats (which I use every day at home) can be used in every scenario—from casual use to setting a more formal table for both indoor and outdoor dinners. The metallic textures will balance any home's style. Plus, they're washable and stain resistant.
Pedestal Footed Cake Stand
Ask anyone and they'll tell you that I love a cake stand. I have a huge collection myself. They look great on display by themselves and you can use them in so many ways—from cakes, sandwiches, flowers, you name it. I love these in particular because you can weave in different colored ribbon for different occasions.
