Ah, the beautiful gesture of giving a wedding gift. We love the idea of taking this opportunity to gift the bride a heartfelt and thoughtful present. Nailing gift-giving is already difficult enough and factoring in different personalities, expectations, and tastes can turn the idea of finding the right gift into a stress-inducing task. Fortunately, we have done the legwork for you. Here are wedding gift ideas for 5 unique brides.
The Timeless Bride
The classic bride loves simplicity and appreciates timeless pieces. Stay away from over-the-top extravagant gifts. We recommend gifts that are practical and functional with a personal touch, such as a monogramed robe from Matouk she could using during her honeymoon. She would also appreciate a gift she could share with her partner like his(hers)-and-hers personalized aprons from Williams Sonoma. And don't forget that a classic and elegant cake serving set will never go out of style. Tiffany's anyone?
The city Bride
This bride keeps up with trends from culture to fashion. She thrives in a fast-paced lifestyle and is ready to take on its challenges. We suggest classes at Popstar Booty Camp, where you can learn a Beyonce dance routine for six weeks and perform it for your friends or a membership to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
The Earthy Bride
This bride is unconventional. She is a wanderer and possesses a certain adventurous quality. She would appreciate a gift that brings out her artistic side, such as cooking classes at Sur La Table; pick a cuisine that she may know little of. This bride will always appreciate a leather journal as she embarks on this new journey, or she may not even want a gift for herself. Instead, opt for a charitable donation to an organization she supports in her name, such as Glide or the San Francisco Education Fund.
The Princess Bride
This bride likes to embrace her inner princess and makes sure to pamper herself. A boudoir photography session by Jennifer Skog or a gel mani-pedi session at Lux SF is an easy answer. She may not be the best cook yet, but she would sure appreciate that Le Creuset Dutch oven.
The Edgy Bride
She is unapologetic for her life choices and at times her risk-taking behavior. This bride likes to stay ahead of the curve and likes to think outside the box. The gift should reflect her unique personality. Get her tickets to see an underground performance artist, sign her up for a play party with Skirt Club, or send this bride skydiving as her last single girl adventure.
