First of all, keep in mind that a bridal shower registry is not the same as a wedding registry. Gifts for a bridal shower tend to be smaller. Do not list major gift items like appliances or furniture. Instead, think about erotic items such as sexy lingerie or aphrodisiacs. More wholesome bridal shower gifts include albums, picture frames, aromatherapy candles, and the like. Romantic CDs and DVDs also make great gifts. You should also list feminine products such as lotions, shampoos, special soaps and other similar items.
How do you put together a bridal shower registry?
You can take advantage of the in-store registries at the large department stores, which also enables guests who do not live near you to choose and buy gifts that are in the registry.
Some women create an online bridal shower registry where your guests can shop from home. Creating an online shower registry at a specialty store will give you the option to choose from a wider variety of products that the shop specializes in. A department store may only have limited varieties for a product while a specialty shop may carry hundreds of varieties.
If your Maid of Honor and other close friends are putting together your bridal shower registry for you, make sure you clue them in on what theme you would like. Avoid getting too surprised by talking to them openly about how you envision your bridal shower to be and what gifts you expect.
Also make sure that the items you include in the registry have a wide range of prices, so that guests with different budgets can have a wider selection to choose from.
