The task of finding the perfect present for a bridal shower means two things—playing it safe and grabbing something that's already on the registry or going the more personal route and choosing something off-registry.
It's important to weigh in how close you are to this friend when making that decision. Is an unexpected gift something she'll appreciate or does she like to stick by the book? For most brides, being gifted something a little more fun and less practical is expected for a bridal shower so this may be the perfect time to branch out.
To help you out, we’ve chosen our top picks for the best bridal shower gifts.
