When starting a new life with someone, there’s this assumed level of care shared between you at this point. Getting a gift for your bride-to-be as an opening gesture to set the tone of married life will make your partner feel special and understood. Some gifts are better than others, while some are perfect for helping you express the deepest levels of affection you hold for this person. Think long and think hard, the list I will be providing today should help function as a springboard for your plans, not something to be lazily ripped off. If there’s any shared memory you think is embodied by a gift in any of the categories, that’s a good sign you’re on the right track.
Let’s see what’s on every bride-to-be’s wishlist:
They are forever, they’re a girl’s best friend, they’re diamonds. A ring isn’t recommended in this case as you just bought her what was supposed to be the one ring to rule them all. Earrings or a necklace go much better for this gift and you can go in pretty much any direction you want with regards to the stone. Moissanite is a good diamond alternative (some circles regard it as better than a diamond in the jewelry) while going with a birthstone is always a safe bet. Do a bit of reading on what body shapes are complemented by different necklace styles so you can pick out something she’ll want to wear out as much as possible.
You’re just about to start a brand new life together, why not make your living space new as well? New and beautiful furniture to lounge on together is always a great idea, especially if it solves a common problem you and your significant other face regularly. Even something as simple as a footrest works wonders to help make the two of you more in sync with each other’s needs as well as being completely comfortable while at home. Think about fun and functional furniture as opposed to end tables and lamps. Those in the hospitality industry have known the importance of comfort in creating great spaces, the catalog at restaurant furniture Canada is a fantastic source of inspiration for fun-yet-functional gear. Look for nice, cozy furniture that fits perfectly somewhere like in the sun while she has her morning coffee or a couch to gaze into the backyard from. Part of making a life together is determining what kind of lifestyle you’ll both live, buy furniture to help make your dreams a reality together and live the lives you two always wanted.
Few things are as rewarding and relaxing as a decadent bath full of fun products. Chances are your bride has a lot on her plate right now, a gift like bath salts or tub spa treatments can help her maximize her limited free time. The relaxing scents and gentle skin treatments do wonders to bring anyone back down to a much more practical stress level to face their next day. It’s a fantastic way to help manage stress and show that you’re there for her, especially when she needs a little alone time. Not only that, many women put a lot of thought into their skincare routine so the added help is more than appreciated.
While not as flashy or high octane as some of the other gifts on this list, a comfortable robe or outfit is always appreciated. Women’s clothing is notoriously nonfunctional, it is comfortable on top of that is a whole other challenge. Find something made out of an opulent and devilishly soft fabric like Turkish cotton, silk, or even something like cashmere. Chances are you can find something that suits her personal style while also being something she wishes she never had to change out of. Or you can go the other way and just get a nice set of sweatpants and a hoodie for those lazy days. All of these gifts boil down to thoughtfulness at the end of the day, the price tag has very little to do with it.
Subscription To Her Favorite Media
Everybody has likes and dislikes when it comes to books, magazines, movies, and shows. Using your knowledge of what your partner is interested in, purchase her a subscription to access art she loves from her favorite authors. An e-book subscription is a great gift if you’re strapped for time, I recommend however going with the flesh and blood monthly book subscription directly to your door.
Get A Monthly Box
These days there’s a monthly box for just about every lifestyle and taste, all curated extremely well for a wide variety of items in each. The retail value of the items in the box almost always matches or exceeds the cost of the box itself, but the real value comes from the fact that most of the items within are difficult to find and excellently chosen. It works as a recurring surprise she can look forward to on a monthly basis without fail. There’s a good chance even you’ll think some of the items are pretty cool.
Something To Make The Weather Easier To Bear
Cater this gift to your local weather patterns and figure out some way to make your wife’s day easier to get through. For instance, a heater for her car during the winter or a great pair of boots can make winter woes much less prominent during those snowy months. On the other side of the spectrum, clothes that breathe well in the summer heat or hiking boots to tackle a difficult adventure works great. Nobody loves the weather year-round, help your wife to beat the heat no matter how crazy your forecast gets.
To find a gift that someone appreciates, it needs to be something that they use frequently enough in their day to day life. Since it’s for your bride specifically, there are few people who know her as well as you do so you’re in a perfect position to narrow down some amazing gift ideas. The gesture is as big of a part of the gift as the gift itself, figure out how to make every aspect of it special. From how you let her discover the gift, how you wrap it up, and especially the inferences she makes based on your choices. Congratulations, marriage is a wonderful thing. Remember, the price tag is secondary to the gift itself!
