Cute Bridal Shower Gifts
July 12, 2019

There are two basic ways to go about buying bridal shower gifts: you can purchase something off the bride and groom’s wedding registry (if they have one) or you can get creative and find a cute bridal shower gift that will be absolutely unique and really appreciated. We recommend going with the second option — weddings are exciting times for many reasons, obviously, but that doesn’t always extend to presents, which tend to be standard, boring cutlery sets and appliances people will never open, let alone use. That makes giving a thoughtful, cute bridal shower gift more than just a gift, but a true act of love and friendship. Believe us, no one wants another china set or junky blender.

To help you find some inspiration for cute bridal shower gifts, MASSE provides recommendations from real people who have really given, received, and/or used them. Our job is to make sure you’re buying cute bridal shower gifts that the bride-to-be won’t have to fake enthusiasm for when they open them up and will actually be excited to use when starting their new lives. Because that’s really what a bridal shower is all about — it’s not some Christmas or birthday gift, for which presents can be somewhat random and inconsequential, but instead a gift meant to help a couple start their futures together.

To figure out what makes a cute bridal shower gift, you can start with eliminating the sort of stuff you’d find on most bridal shower gift recommendation lists. You know, cheap dishes and sets of cloth napkins no one is ever really going to use. Instead, as with the best choices for so many other kinds of gifts, you’ll want to find things that people really want but wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves. Gifts that help express and represent their love, make their lives easier, or classes things up a bit. Items they’ll be proud to own, whether they’re put on display, used to serve guests, or kept for private moments. Those are the best bridal shower gifts, and we’ll make it easy to find the ones that work for whoever you’re looking to buy for.

Agate Cheese Board

$78.00By: Anthropologie
They say not a whole lot changes after you get married, but it’s really just that a whole lot of smaller things occur after a couple gets married. One of the most common changes? Tying the knot really seems to inspire people to host dinners (frequently with other couples) at their homes — hey, it’s less stressful than a wedding, so it must seem pretty easy. Help them through this interesting time in their post-wedding lives with this Agate Cheese Board from Anthropologie, which doubles as a gorgeous decorative conversation piece. Every board is different, given that they’re all made with natural agate stone, which varies in color and pattern, but that’s part of what makes this such a cute bridal shower gift!

Master Bath Set

$355.00By: Hill House Home
It really is uncanny: As soon as people are married, they feel like real adults, and think they have to start acting accordingly. One of the little telltale signs of adulthood is having quality bedding and bathroom sets, and that includes towels. This Master Bath Set from Hill House Home will knock out the entire bathroom in one go, with four bath towels, four hand towels, four washcloths and a classy bath mat. They’re light and absorbent, and as one MASSE user says, the set “is as chic as it is useful!”
Not every newlywed couple has a giant, versatile kitchen, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want cooking to be part of their honeymoon nesting period. You can help them overcome their small surface area — or rookie cooking skills — with a single bridal shower gift thanks to this high quality, resilient enameled cast iron dutch oven from Lodge. An American company making top-notch kitchen products from their iron forges in Tennessee, Lodge has perfected the dutch oven and made it a fantastic multi-purpose device, great for both cooking and refrigerating, plus everything in between. Our users love it, with one raving that it’s “as beautiful and as effective for cooking” as much more expensive dutch ovens.
