On top of finding the perfect, original, out-of-this-world wedding gift for your favorite couple (no pressure), you also need to cross shopping for a bridal shower gift for the bride off your list if you're invited to this pre-wedding festivity. While wedding presents tend to be reserved for slightly trite registry items (please do NOT show up to the shower armed with a new blender), this pre-wedding celebration lets you channel your true gift-giving creativity. Yes, you can take the easy way out and gift the silverware set she requested but, come on—you're a much better gift giver than that and you know it, especially if you're super tight with the bride.

We challenge you to raise the bar on your gift-giving cred to pinpoint a bridal-worthy present that the bride-to-be can use for the wedding day and beyond. From lingerie that won't incite dirty looks from the bride's grandmother to honeymoon accessories, we rounded up 19 diverse picks for any price point that undoubtedly rival a new plate set or tea towels. The bridal shower guest of honor can kick off her upcoming marriage in style with your carefully thought out and completely practical present. Just note that you're setting the stakes even higher when it comes to your wedding gift, but we've got you covered in that department, as well.

There's plenty of room for more, so the bride can keep all her wedding-related papers in one safe place. The picturesque cover might also make her want to hold onto this organizer even after she says "I do."
