Wedding gifts and bridal shower gifts tend to be practical, but bachelorette party gifts don’t need to be so serious. And while those practical gifts help her prepare for her new life and home, bachelorette gifts are more about preparing for a memorable honeymoon. If you’re looking for the perfect gift, remember to consider the bride-to-be’s tastes, but you can have fun pushing the boundaries of those tastes. If you think it will get a laugh out of your group of friends without embarrassing the bachelorette too much, then it’s probably the right choice.
Best Bachelorette Gifts:
Find the Perfect Gift ▸
A sexy outfit for the bride to wear on her honeymoon is a classic bachelorette party gift. If you’re organizing the bachelorette party, consider this game: On the invitation, ask each guest to bring a lingerie gift that’s their own style, but make sure they don’t include a gift tag saying who the gift is from. Then, at the party, the bride will have to guess who the lingerie is from, based on the style. The bride will get lots of cute lingerie, and the group will have fun getting to know each other’s tastes.
- Sexy Games
Adult games are like drinking games: They make it a little more fun to do what you wanted to do anyway. Give the bride-to-be a sexy game that she can play with her new spouse on the honeymoon. Naughty card games would be easy to pack in her luggage.
- Travel Gear
Gifts that will help the bride-to-be prepare for her honeymoon include things she needs for travelling. Depending on where the honeymoon will be, she may need a new beach towel and bikini, a passport holder, or a pair of sunglasses.
- "Mrs." Gifts
Celebrate the union of two people with a gift that proclaims the bride’s new status as a "Mrs." Pillowcases, luggage tags, bath towels, throw pillows, flasks, and many other playful wedding gifts come with the inscription that lets everyone know about the bride’s new title.
- Beauty Products
A happy bride is naturally beautiful, but new beauty products will enhance her newlywed glow. Consider giving her a bottle of perfume, a set of nail polish and mani/pedi supplies, or some high-end skin care products. You could also put together a gift basket of bath products to really pamper her.
