What do you give a bride for the bachelorette party?
This spring, I'm a bridesmaid in my first friend - and non-family - wedding. I'm struggling a bit with gift ideas for the various wedding events. What exactly do you give a bride for the bachelorette party and shower? Do brides really want to be given lingerie that someone else picked out for them? Is a gift necessary when it's a destination bachelorette? What is expected and/or appropriate these days?
Effme. I've never even been to a shower. I guess you just shop the registry? Unless, of course, there is some some bullsh*t theme.
Gifts for the bachelorette party are strictly optional. (There is already way too much gift-giving surrounding weddings, if you ask me.) Just pls stay away from plastic handcuffs, furry handcuffs and/or satin handcuffs. Real handcuffs might be cool. And there's nothing wrong with picking out lingerie as long as you get a gift receipt.
