Bridal season is in full swing and if you're like us, you've got atleast one bride on your list that you've been frantically trying to find the right gift for.
When it comes to gifting the bride to be, it can definitely feel tricky at times. We have to consider their registry, what they love, what their style may be, and what they need.
We've rounded up our favorite, tried & true, can't-go-wrong, gift ideas for all brides. And, if you yourself are a bride, don't forget we have a registry!
1: For the bride you're incredibly close to - we're talking daughter, daughter-in-law, best friend...close.
We highly suggest a Hotel Silver Cake Stand, our beautiful Hotel Silver Cocktail Shakers or our favorite Wüsthof cutlery. Quality knives are one of those items that couples tend to wait on so you can never go wrong when showing up with new cutlery at a bridal shower. However, make sure the bride doesn't have any on their registry first. Our personal favorites are the Wüsthof Steak Knives or the Wüsthof 6 piece Starter Set.
2: For the bride you're good friends with but not as close as #1.
We love gifting new placemats and linens! You can never go wrong with these because they're used by everyone and you can never have too many on-hand. Our picks? The Emmy Placemat, Hampton Napkin Rings, or the Bamboo Placemats.
You also can't go wrong with anything from Graf Lantz! Our favorite is this double wine bottle carrier - so beautiful. If your friend enjoys beautiful home decor, take a peek at our Woven Serving Tray - we can't get enough of it.
3: For the bride to be you know from work, from church, or from your neighborhood - but aren't as close to.
When you're shopping for someone you aren't super, super close to - it can feel tough finding the right gift. We want to gift them something really special without breaking the bank. We highly recommend coordinating a gift basket with all of their favorite items that they can use over and over. Here are two gift basket options we love to take advantage of:
For the wine lover: We recommend curating a basket that has a delicious Vintage Cheddar, a good jelly or jam, a bottle of red wine, a corkscrew, and maybe even a 3 Piece Cheese Set and our favorite Cheese Storage Bags. We also love these Graf Lantz Wine Markers!
For the non-drinker: For the bride and groom who don't enjoy drinking, we love to gift them items they'll use in their homes over and over again. We love curating a basket with the Metro Stripe Potholders, Graf Lantz Coasters, Ina-approved Plastic Food Containers, ingredients from our pantry, or a few kitchen tools like a spatula, wooden spoons, or even a zester.
