Creative Bridal Shower Gift Ideas

by Katie on May 3, 2012


Do you like creative gifts?  Who doesn’t, really!  I think we all like to receive unique and creative gifts that show that someone really cares about us enough to take the time to do something special.   Because I like receiving them – I also like giving them!

I just can’t go and buy something random and throw it in a bag. I guess I could if I had to, but it pains my creative side.  As far as bridal showers go, my favorite gift to give is a Handmade Recipe Book along with basic cooking necessities.  Everyone can use some recipe help when they are just starting out.  When I was a new bride I welcomed ANY help I could get in the kitchen!!

If you are into creative gifts, too…you are going to love some of these ideas I found around Pinterest!  If you are also throwing a bridal shower as well, you will want to check out my 5 Tips for Throwing a Shower on a BUDGET!

Creative Bridal Shower Gift Ideas - Taking a creative gift to a shower is pretty easy to do.  WIth just a little thought and time you can have something unique and one of a kind to bring!

First up is a pasta night gift basket. Gift baskets are my go-to gift. The ideas are endless when it comes to gift baskets!

Glass etching has been on my craft to do list for a while! I mean really…who wouldn’t LOVE this? And unlike toasters, I don’t think you would have to worry about them receiving two!

A cookbook is always a great useable gift. Buy a kitchen towel, too, and it will double as wrapping!!

Great ideas for a bridal shower. I feel the same way you do – I don’t like giving just ordinary gifts. I like to give gifts that show I put some time and thought into them.

I love gift baskets too – they are so versatile, you can come up with one for any occasion. And they’re so much fun to get!

I have never seen a dish towel cake before – I guess it’s similar to the diaper cake idea.

Thanks for sharing your ideas.
