Buying a bridal shower gift can be tricky, especially if the newlyweds have a ton of friends and family who have already snatched up every household appliance, dinnerware set and crystal glassware ensemble on the registry. Rather than spending an arm and leg before the wedding, consider giving the bride-to-be a nice homemade gift basket. Not only will you save money, but you will also benefit from giving a gift that is from the heart and stands out from the rest.
Breakfast In Bed Basket
Every newlywed couple could use a little R&R. This breakfast in bed gift basket is a perfect idea! This basket should contain an assortment of gourmet delights for breakfast. Be sure to include old-fashioned pancake and waffle mix, gourmet maple syrup, Ghirardelli white mocha hot chocolate mix, strawberry preserves, coffee and tea. Trim the basket with desert cookies for an extra special treat. You can also get the newlyweds a set of his and her coffee mugs to complete the gift.
Bath and Body Basket
Let’s face it; planning a wedding can be quite stressful. And what future bride doesn’t need to distress at some point? Pack your gift basket with lavish spa and beauty products every woman deserves.
