Cool Gift Ideas for the Bride

A really great touch on the hen is a little gift for the bride. No matter how big or small the budget can allow, something thoughtful will be another addition to the hen party surprises and give the bride something to remember the celebrations by. Here are some cool gift ideas for the bride to help you find the perfect gift!


For the gin loving bride

Who doesn’t love a nice gin these days? Could you ever go wrong with the gin and tonic jug set below? We don’t think so! A household staple for life. Purchase this from Yvonne Ellen on Etsy here.  We have shared a few more of the gorgeous pieces from her to die for collection. Like, this is seriously one of these is nearly the perfect gift for every female. Always. 




If in doubt, homeware!

If in doubt, homewares is always the best fall back. What bride isn’t a lover of pretty glasses, mirrors, candles or frames. The go to is Oliver Bonas. You will always find a cute gift itdea that the person will actually like and use. Stick with trendy gold or marble and you can’t go wrong. How pretty are these champagne glasses?! Check out the Oliver Bonas gift collection here.


Hitting the write note

Indulge in your childhood love of pretty stationery with these fun pencils that are sure to brighten up even the dullest day back at the office. Also a PERFECT pick me up from a 4 to a 10 on a bad day! Yes you totally can girls. Get these pretties on My Shining Armour here



It’s in the bag

Let the bride declare her undying love in style in the run up to her big day and give her the most awesome statement clutch ever. OK so this is €375 (on sale!) but if there are enough of you chipping in, it’s not too expensive. See more on this cool Happiness Clutch for the bride here. 


If this is too statement (and too pricey) for the budget, then take a look at the hottest bride and tribe clutches on Etsy right now. These handmade sparkly numbers come in a range of colours and you can customise with MRS, Bride, I DO etc. You can also get some similar ones for the bridesmaids and mother of the bride



The personal touch

Go for some wall art which doesn’t take itself too seriously that can hang proudly in her house. We love the amazing collection of prints available at FY. They have something for everyone and you can find a great wedding gift here too. We think this Wild Thing print is perfect for the hen party celebrations though. You could customise this further by using it as a signing print for hen friends – yes we know, an amazing idea! Shop it now here. 


Who doesn’t love a hamper?

Penney’s or Primark gifts and homewares are going from strength to strength and who could argue with the price?! Lots of lovely bits and bobs in store right now. Keep an eye out for their cute wedding collection with lots of cute gift ideas for the bride.
