5 Christmas Gift Ideas for the Bride-to-Be

Christmas is in 2 weeks, can you believe it? Are you stuck for gift ideas to get for your friend who’s about to get married? I hope these will help :)

  • Wedding planning consultation – if you know that the couple doesn’t have a wedding planner, they might benefit from a consultation with an actual wedding planner. There are some event planners in the city that have a la carte services where they will meet couples for an hour and answer questions. A few examples: Epic Events, Umbrella Events, and A Day to Remember. If you have another wedding planner in mind, you can always message them and ask if they have an hourly rate.
  • Etsy gift cardEtsy is very popular among brides. They have a huge wedding section which includes jewelry, decor, accessories, and even wedding dresses! An Etsy gift card will surely be appreciated.
  • A crafting class – If your friend is a DIY-er, I think she would really enjoy some sort of class that will help her create something special for the wedding. Making Memories with Scrapbooking has calligraphy and card-making classes. Love by Phoebe offers watercolour classes. Celsia Florist often holds flower arrangement classes. Those are just a few examples :)
  • Davie and Chiyo clutch – What I love about Davie and Chiyo clutches is that they look good for weddings and other occasions as well. It’s not a one-shot gift. Not to mention they are locally made and very fashionable.
  • A spa gift certificate – Whether it’s for pre-wedding primping or post-wedding de-stressing, a spa gift certificate would be a welcome gift.

What do you think? Anything to add? Let me know in the comments if you’ve got other great ideas to share :) Happy shopping and have a safe and happy holiday!

    Great post!
    “Breathe” – Such an important one to remember.
    I’m glad you put that one on the list!
    I’ve been to so many weddings where the bride, groom, and family forget to enjoy their celebration!
    So yes, breath, relax, enjoy!
