The key is to think about her lifestyle and upcoming plans. If she has been talking nonstop about her honeymoon, gift her with something to enhance this once-in-a-lifetime trip.

How to Select a Bridal Shower Gift
Bridal Shower Etiquette:
Even if you were invited to a shower but cannot attend, the well-mannered thing to do is give a gift. Most brides will register for gifts, but if her list is completed, or if you’d rather purchase a more personal gift, consider the fun and functional gift ideas on our list.
How much you spend on a gift is mostly about your budget. If you want to spend less, a personalized gift will make up for that. Or, how about going in on a more expensive gift with other friends of the bride? Just remember, if you are in the wedding, the bride knows you are spending a pretty penny to be part of her big day, so hopefully she will understand if you can’t afford an ostentatious gift. The good news is you’ll find ideas at all price points on our roundup, starting at just $15!
Do you want to make the bride laugh or cry (in a good way)? This will determine if you go with a sentimental or funny gift. Just note that many gifts on this list are items the couple can use for years to come, and you really can’t go wrong with a present like that!
