Ahh, the bridal shower. A time-honored tradition, like the bachelorette party, but fancier (and maybe a little classier lol)! Actually, the tradition of a bridal shower dates all the way back to the days when brides had to assemble dowries, which is what the presents used to be for. Now—because thankfully that’s not a thing anymore—they’re more of a fun way for the girls in a bride’s life to get together before the wedding, to meet, talk, laugh, play games, and enjoy each other’s company (and yes, of course, to give the bride presents). One of the best parts about a bridal shower for your guests is the favors they get to take home at the end. If you’re stuck for ideas, we’ve got a few of our own—here are 19 of the cutest ideas to get you started!
Your guests can take the serenity and fun of the bridal shower home with them—and if you know them well enough, you can even tailor the scent of their candle to fit them personally!
A luxurious soap bar will allow your girls to pamper themselves. Plus, how cute is the phrase “from my shower to yours?!”
