A traditional shower would bestow the bride-to-be with kitchen wares and gifts from the registry, but for this smaller, more intimate gathering, consider asking guests to bring gifts to pamper the bride, like a gift certificate to a spa, lingerie, bath and body products or even a pair of sunglasses to wear on her honeymoon. Another way to make the event more personal is to ask each guest to write the bride-to-be a letter for the bride to read on the night before her wedding. This is a time when brides will be grateful to have a collection of words of encouragement and comfort from her dearest friends.
