The gift doesn’t have to be something for the couple after they’re married. It can be something just for the ‘bride’ such as exotic undies for the honeymoon or a spa day and so on. As you will be attending the wedding and also expected to buy a gift for that the bridal shower gift is not expected to be something extravagant and can be an accessory to the main wedding present.

An extra special gift would be a personalized keepsake including a photo or photos of the happy couple.
