3 Gift Ideas For The Bride-To-Be

Here at Glitter Guide, we love dreaming up the absolute perfect gifts for a bride-to-be; something creative, original and—our favorite—personal. While pans and cutlery are, no doubt, a necessity for newlyweds, we love the idea of “wowing” the bride when she rips open a gift! Today, we are turning to wedding brand BHLDN to help us gift imaginatively, thoughtfully and in a cinch! Here are some of their individual gift options for brides.

We’ve come up with three pretty, practical and personally curated gift sets perfect for a bride-to-be: a relaxation care package, a bachelorette box, and a wedding day package that she’ll love digging into the morning of! The best part is that nothing is set in stone—You can swap in and out as you please to create the perfect set for the bride you know!

Planning a wedding can be a stressful and overwhelming process. Surprise your bride-to-be with a Relaxation Care Package to create the best possible at-home spa:

-Bath salts, body oil and luxe hand cream
-Relaxing teas or a bottle of bubbly
-A scented candle
-Dried lavender bouquet or sachet
-A comfy robe, nightgown or eye mask
-A new wedding magazine, planning book or a fun book unrelated to wedding planning to take her mind off the stress of all the planning
-Gift card for a massage or manicure & pedicure

In our BHLDN Relaxation Care Package:
Love Poems Book ($11.95), Rosy-Cheeked Flutes ($68), Mullein & Sparrow French Lavender Body Oil ($30) and Bath Salts ($40), Geraldine magazine ($30), Painted Petal Robe ($65),  Seaside Lace Chemise ($68), and Capri Blue Mercury Glass Jar Candle ($28).


Give the bride a night of at-home pampering with a DIY spa kit and something to read!


Nothing says bachelorette party like confetti, lipstick and bubbly! While it may be traditional to gift lingerie for a bride-to-be, we decided to forgo tradition and curate a girly and flirty Bachelorette Box full of goodies to go along with her chemise. Can’t make it to the bachelorette party? This gift box is a perfect way to contribute!


Here is what we would give to the bride-to-be for her bachelorette party:

-A sparkly accessory (jewelry or a clutch) for your ladies night out on the town
-Nail polish and lipstick
-A mini bottle of bubbly with fun straws and new champagne glasses
-Confetti, balloons and a fun custom sash
-A DIY ‘recovery’ kit

In our BHLDN Bachelorette Box:
Pont d’Arcades Clutch ($180),  Confetti Popper ($12), Sunday Riley  Modern Lip Color ($32), Metallic Swirl Cocktail Straws ($5), Roza Teardrop Earrings ($150), Floriography Pumps ($160), Katya Bridesmaid Belt ($80), Lauren B Polish Set ($28), Enchanted Forest Comb ($100), Rosy-Cheeked Flutes ($68).


Every girl loves a new pair of pumps or daring lipstick color to try out! Contribute to the bride’s bachelorette party outfit by gifting something she’ll wear when she’s out on the town with her favorite ladies!


You can never go wrong with a little glitter, especially for a bachelorette party! Add a little bit of sparkle to the night with one of these items above.


There are only a few days in life as exciting as the morning you spend getting ready for your wedding! Regardless, it’s very likely the bride-to-be will have those last-minute nerves!
