Not every bride dreams of a white taffeta wedding filled with florals and lace. From Steampunk to Superheroes, brides are letting their personality shine through on their big day. Which makes life interesting… and challenging when it comes to choosing ‘the perfect gift’ for your sassy friend.
Here are 3 ideas for different stages of the bridal journey:
While some gal pals are going completely over the top with their bachelorette parties by renting luxury homes in Belize, the girls at Bustle have come up with a solid list of fun for everyone. Some sassy, sexy ideas include a pole dancing party or cocktail and cooking classes.
One of the latest bachelorette trends includes pop-up Boudoir sessions and artisan chocolate tastings. The evening is usually hosted in a boujee hotel suite with a skilled boudoir photographer. Top it off with some bubbly and it’s one of the most decadent nights you’ll ever experience.
For your 420 Friendly friends, a private cannabis tasting dinner or ‘Highly Inspired’ yoga class could be just the thing to alleviate pre-wedding stress.
When it comes time to choosing a gift, try to keep this gift matched to the theme of the party.
* A killer piece of lingerie matched with Barely There makes an excellent gift for a Boudoir theme or pole dancing class.
Traditional Wedding Showers are notoriously boring. Sorry, but true. Usually, ladies of all ages gather in one place making it incredibly hard to choose something fun without completely offending someone. Sound impossible? It is. So take a stance and do something you’ll enjoy.
The only gift to bring to that kind of shower is the Nice & Naughty kit. The ‘kit’ comes with 2 types of topical aphrodisiacs and a set of ‘Naughty and Nice’ cards for couples to answer, discuss, and have some fun taking action.
The Gift of Experience
Chances are, your highly unique and creative friends care less about the breadmaker and care more about making the bread- especially if they are Millennials. In fact, according to market research at Eventbrite, More than 3 in 4 millennials would choose to spend money on a desirable experience or event over buying something ‘new.’
After all, things go away, but an awesome experience lasts forever. Here are some of our favorite picks for giving your newly wed friends a gift of experience.
Festival Tickets for music lovers.
According to Umbel, “Attending a multi-day music festival has become almost a rite of passage for the Millennial generation.” There is truly something for every type of music lover ranging from Austin City Limits to Jay Z’s Made in America.
