Your best friend since you were four called you with her amazing engagement news. You cried happy tears and sent her a million text messages about how happy you are that she found “the one” But now it’s time to figure out what to get the newest bride-to-be in your life! What are you going to get her that’s super unique and at the same time something she’ll totally love (almost as much as her fiancĂ©)!   With planning a wedding, she’s going to need some coffee to keep her going. These mugs are SO perfect to have her reminded of that very special day and how it all began. Add a gift card or a pack of her favorite K-Cups to make sure she’s prepared when she needs her caffeine fix.


Chances are she probably bought herself a planner already, so these stickers are the cutest add on to make her (possibly stressful) planning a little more fun!


An adorable bride cap is perfect for sunny days or going to the gym. It’s something that she can only wear for a short period of time so she’ll love proudly wearing it.

Smathers & Branson

This stationery is perfect for her to get a jump start on writing her thank you notes (or even personal notes) now that she is a bride!

Book an appointment for the two of you to get a manicure! You know she’s going to be showing off her beautiful ring all season long and it gives you the chance to hear about every detail from the engagement and her wedding planning (while getting pampered—what could be better?) A monogrammed tote bag with her future last initial is a great way to celebrate her upcoming wedding! To make it even more special, fill it with some wedding goodies—a bottle of nail polish, some wedding magazines (like New Jersey Bride  ), a notepad, etc.

If they’ve done an engagement shoot or had a photographer at the actual engagement, chances are they’ve ordered tons of photos to display in their home. Take the next step and frame one of those photos for her to bring to work or put on her nightstand!


If you’re feeling a little more generous this year, The Mrs. Box is an adorable way for her to store her ring (and future wedding band) when traveling or simply going to the gym. It also will make for beautiful detail shots on her wedding day!
