Last Minute Gift Ideas For Busy Brides-To-Be
Getting married is one of the most wonderful events, but it's not without its stresses and strains. As the big day approaches, many brides-to-be find themselves hugely short on time and rushing through lots of tasks, including finishing planning the wedding and getting ready to walk down the aisle. In this blog, we'll take a quick look at some great last-minute ways to treat a bride-to-be with thoughtful gift ideas that serve as a wonderful memento of her special day.
Opt For Luxury
There are few brides-to-be who don't appreciate the chance to enjoy something luxurious in the middle of the chaos of wedding planning, whether that's a gift they can treasure for years to come, or a special event planned in advance of the big day. If you’re on the hunt for personalised wedding gifts and simply can’t decide what she’d love, look for items and experiences which have a luxurious look or feel to make the bride feel pampered in the run up to the main event.
Consider Her Interests
You probably have a good idea of the bride’s likes and dislikes as well as her hobbies, passions and interests. As the wedding planning intensifies, many brides spend a lot of time considering other people's role in the event, and can easily forget about their own interests. Remind her by gifting something special and uniquely her, which reflects the bride-to-be you know and love.
Ask The Groom
If you're in doubt about what to buy the bride, why not have a chat with her future husband? He might be able to point you in the right direction – or let you know about an item she's always wanted. If you're trying to keep your gift-giving secret, then be sure the groom knows not to let the cat out of the bag. Her parents and siblings are also great sources of intel and may be able to share a few of their own ideas with you. It’s often wise to check with close family and friends in any case to avoid duplicating a gift, especially if they haven’t set up a wedding gift registry.
Choose Something Personalised
Some of the most meaningful gifts are those which have been personalised, so if you're still not sure, a personalised wedding gift is often the best option. From candles and cushions to photo frames and jewellery, glassware to wall art, your options are almost unlimited. Being spoilt for choice means you can be sure of finding just the right gift for the bride-to-be.
Select A Gift She Can Display
If the bride and her future hubby are ready to set up their marital home, why not select an item which they can put on display? This is a lovely way of helping them acclimatise to life as a married couple, while reminding the bride that you'll always be there for her after the wedding.
Find A Timeless Item
If you're planning on gift-giving longevity, you’ll need to select a timeless item which impresses the bride as much now as it will several years down the line. If this is your goal, then look for beautiful gifts with tasteful design elements such as an engraved decanter, personalised photo frames, paperweight or personalised champagne flutes.
Add Something Handmade
A handmade element is a lovely way of further personalising your gift, and it doesn't take long to add your own personal flair to the item you've bought. Whether you're decorating a card or impressing the recipient with your handmade gift-wrap skills, this is a special touch they'll remember for a long time.
Consider Something She Can Share
Planning a wedding is a social time and most brides will spend hours in the company of friends, family and even wedding planners and staff at their chosen venue. For this reason, you might want to consider gifting something the bride-to-be can share with some of the people she meets. It's great for bonding, and she's sure to appreciate the added thought.
Buy From A Company You Can Trust
Purchasing a gift last-minute can be pretty stressful, leaving you wondering whether it'll arrive on time and look as it did in the photos! If this is a concern for you, then be sure to shop with a company which offers speedy delivery – helping to take some of the pressure off and leaving you free to let your imagination run wild.
