Are you planning a bridal shower or planning to attend one? Nervous on what to give as a gift? There are various ideas out there that the bride will absolutely love and need for her new home. However, if you're still unsure, Wedding and Party Network has a guide to bridal shower gift essentials.

If you're wanting to stray away from her bridal registry or just add something cute and unique with what you get off her bridal registry, there are lots of options out there. Here are a few tips and ideas that will help make your gift stand out.

Wedding Day Survival Kit – This is such a cute gift to give any bride and it's an easy gift to put together. Visit the travel section of your local pharmacy and pick up toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, breath mints, travel hairbrush, Shout wipes, lotion, bobby pins, hairspray and anything else you may think of that the bride may need on her wedding day. You never know when little mishaps could occur.

Creative Garment Bag & Hanger – The bride will definitely need a garment bag and hanger for her wedding dress. Her wedding photographer will even want to take pictures of the wedding dress on the hanger. Search for fun and colorful garment bags that suit the bride's style. Also, you can even find hangers that feature "bride" or even her new last name spelled out in wire. She will absolutely love this gift.

Mr. & Mrs. – There are different items that feature Mr. & Mrs. on them like coffee mugs, t-shirts, bags, picture frames and many more items. If they're a fan of drinking coffee together or want something to wear to the airport that shows that they're just married, these gift items are a must.

Create a date night gift – Of course, coming up with unique date ideas maybe hard for some couples. So, help them out by creating a date night gift basket. Send them off on a picnic for their date night by including a picnic basket, drink yard stakes, fun paper plates and a picnic blanket. You can also create a weekend getaway bag by including sunscreen, bride and groom towels and a bag. They will both appreciate this gift.

So, when it comes to finding gift essentials for a bridal shower, think out-of-the-box. Come up with unique gift ideas for the bride to pair with your shower gift that you got off their registry. It doesn't have to be anything big, just think of something that can make your gift stand out that the bride will love.
