Uh oh – you are attending a bridal shower that has no registry?! Now, you’re faced with finding the perfect gift that communicates your excitement about her wedding and how much you adore her without breaking the bank. First of all, we don’t envy you, gift-giving is no easy task. Second of all, we are here to help you with a list of the perfect bridal shower gifts to be mixed and matched. A fair warning, all of these products are high-key amazing and low-key addictive – you may end up finding yourself buying two of each, one for her and one for you (and we don’t blame you for it!)

A Sustainable Mascara That Works

Okay, okay – we know it’s brave to buy mascara for a girlfriend, but she will love you for introducing her to this Essential Mascara from Elate. Offering stunning length to lashes, this mascara is gentle on sensitive eyes. The best part, it’s water and sweat resistant – making it the perfect wedding day mascara. The wooden tube provides a chic appearance while also achieving a more sustainable product. Not to mention, all Elate makeup is cruelty-free, clean, and Vegan. While you’re at it, you may want to add another to your cart for yourself!

One Brush to Solve All Her Hairbrushing Woes

With innovative flexible bristles, Crave Naturals’ pain and breakage-free detangling brush glides smoothly through wet or dry hair. Yet another product she can use on her wedding day, this innovative brush comes in six different colors to choose from (including trendy pastels), so find her favorite color and head to checkout. 

Sisterhood of the Traveling Candles

URBAN APOTHECARY LONDON truly had an amazing idea when they made these delightful travel size candles. Each scent offers a journey for the senses, ideal for her to unwind and relax on the honeymoon/destination wedding vacation. From the smell of Smoked Leather to a Coconut Grove and everything in between, these little candles are packed in a sleek, matte black tin and are equipped with a sealable lid. 

Products to Inspire Her Self-care Routine 

The most important thing for brides to remember in all the craziness of planning is to take moments to regroup and breathe. Encourage her to practice that act of self-care by gifting the Breathe Mindful Oil, an aromatherapy blend of organic essential oils by Solvasa. The delightful scented oil is delivered in a crystal-inspired container that doubles as a sensory-grounding touchstone. Pairing beautifully with the oil is Solvasa’s Destressance Serum + Glide which integrates peptides and adaptogens for radiant, youthful skin. 

Treat That Beautiful Bride’s Face

These two products by No, Thank You are just what a bride needs for her daily pre-wedding prep routine. Incorporating CBD, this hydrating and moisturizing mask is made to be put on before bed and washed off in the morning to achieve smooth, bright skin. Pair that with their vanilla mint lip balm (also containing CBD), and you’ve got yourself one absolutely glowing bride-to-be.

Faith, Trust and a Little Collagen Dust

You’ve probably heard that one of the best ways to achieve radiant hair, glowing skin and healthy nails is to take collagen. It’s yet another perfect piece to the pre-wedding prep puzzle. But, for gift-giving purposes, you don’t want to give the future bride just any ‘ole bottle of the stuff. That’s where Tone It Up steps into the picture. They’ve created the highest quality, sustainable and non-GMO powder with marine collagen peptides. The powder even adds a little sweetness to her coffee, smoothies, and baked treats.

Now that you gathered up the perfect pre-wedding prep items for the bride-to-be, all that’s left to do is find a cute basket, tie on some ribbon in her favorite color, and get ready to give the ultimate bridal shower gift!
