"OMG You Just Got Engaged!!!!" Gifts

In addition to an engagement gift (typically something off the registry purchased a few weeks after the actual engagement), I like to buy my brides an "OMG! You just got engaged!! (insert girlie squeal)" Gift. This is a little something special for just the bride (not the couple) to get her excited about her year ahead. I will try to have the gift ready in my apartment if I know the engagement is coming soon, but sometimes if you are caught off guard, you need to just haul a** to the nearest store and pick one up! Some of my favorite gifts to give include:
  • Bedazzled "Bride" tank top
  • A ring dish (I made a personalized one at one of those paint your own pottery places)
  • White "bride" or "I Do" underwear/thong
  • Bridal magazines
  • Ring/jewelry cleaner so she can keep that rock sparkling!
  • A gift certificate for a manicure or better yet- take her to get one so you can spend some QT together
  • Wedding planning book (I usually go with this Martha Stewart book, because I personalize the cover with the bride and groom's names. I also like that it's a binder, so you can put things in or take them out)

If you are good friends with the groom, he shouldn't feel left out! There are some gifts you can get him too! Some examples are:

Let me know if you have any other great ideas to share.

Happy Bridesmaiding!
