10 Best Gifts to Hand Out Before the Big Day

Posted in Lifestyle | 25th July 2019

The lead up to a wedding is a magical time for any bride-to-be. However, with so many things to think about (from the cake to the venue to the wedding invitations), it can also be a pretty stressful time too.

So, to help you look after your beautiful brides-to-be, we’ve found some of the best gifts to give her before the big day. Trust us – they’ll go down a treat!

A personalised organiser

Planning a wedding is no easy task, so why don’t you help out the bride-to-be by helping her organise her big day? A personalised organiser will help her to keep track of supplier info and key dates and times of appointments leading up to the big day. We love this one Rose Gold Wedding Planning Notebook.

Wedding dress coat hanger

Personalised bridal hangers are both practical (for when it’s wedding dress day) and pretty (they make a lovely chic souvenir). You can have them engraved with details of the special day including the date and location.

Spa treatment

Give the future bride a day away from the stress of wedding planning and treat her to a day of pampering. Whether relaxing in a bubbling hot tub or having her worries rubbed away with a Swedish massage, whatever she chooses, one thing is for sure: she’ll be glad she chose a friend like you.

Something blue

We’ve all heard the rhyme: ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ but finding something blue that fits into the bride’s look can be really tricky. That’s why we love these I Do Shoe Stickers. Give them to your bestie to stick on the soles of her heels and complete the rhyme for good luck.

Bridal nail varnishes

Give the bride-to-be a new look with a set of special bridal nail varnishes. Soft shades with quirky names, like Getting Nadi on my Honeymoon and Mrs Always Right should have her giggling in no time.

 

Bride-to-be getting ready robe

The bride will need something cool and comfortable to wear while she’s getting her hair and makeup done. A bride-to-be robe is the perfect solution as it’s easy to slip off and won’t smudge her face or ruin her hair. Get matching ‘bride squad’ versions to complete the fun look for your exciting morning of getting ready together!

Personalised eye mask

In the run-up to the big day, the bride-to-be will likely be lusting for beauty sleep. So, to help her drift off, give her the gift of sleep with her very own bridal eye mask.

Scented candles

Not only do scented candles smell gorgeous, but they also work wonders on calming nerves in the lead up to the big day. The sense of smell is really closely linked with memory recall too so lighting a wedding day candle after the big day will bring all the excitement and emotion flooding back.

Wedding countdown sign

Sometimes even the biggest events in life have a habit of appearing all of a sudden. To help the bride-to-be prepare for her big day, give her a wedding countdown sign to keep her on track.

Emergency wedding kit

While the word ‘emergency’ might sound scary, an emergency wedding kit is actually much more fun than that. An assortment of all the little things a bride-to-be might need, such as lip gloss, spare tights, concealer and compact mirrors, this convenient bride’s survival kit could potentially save the day!
