A Hen night is a typical rite of passage for the bride to be and is usually celebrated with a gathering of female friends and family members and a lot of alcohol and partying. Although traditional hen nights were spent going over the financial contributions a bride would make to her husband, these days the hen party is filled with much more fun. As excited for the celebrations as you might be, there is still the nerve inducing task of finding the perfect gift to bring along. Here are 5 different types of gifts to give the bride to be on her hen night.
If you are a close friend of the bride then it might be a nice idea to buy her something more intimate like a pretty honeymoon underwear set. This is something that the bride will most definitely want and can often be quite pricey so she would no doubt appreciate the thought. Just be sure to choose the right size, especially if you’re going for a pricier brand.
There are hundreds of ideas for fun gifts that you can buy the bride to be, but not all are well-received. Make sure you get to know a little bit about the bride’s wishes for her hen night by talking with the maid of honour or mother of the bride, since there may be a strict ‘no rude props or male strippers policy’ that could ruin her day if broken. Other ideas such as printed t-shirts with funny slogans can be harmless, along with some game ideas for the night ahead.
Classier gifts are often necessary for brides to be who do not appreciate all of the gimmicks and funny traditions that are associated with hen nights and can be a great way to show how you care. Organising matching robes for all the bridesmaids is a great way to enjoy a classy breakfast the morning after the hen party and is something that all of the guests can share with the bride-to-be.
Gift the bride to be with something a little sexy for their wedding night and honeymoon by choosing a fun toy or other product from Wicked Wandas. This might be more suitable when bought from a closer friend who can enjoy having a laugh with the bride to be about their gift or can be genuinely appreciated without any feelings of awkwardness.
Memorable gifts are always a great way to show how much you care about the bride-to-be since they can be deeply sentimental, such as a collage of high-school memories or perhaps a homemade gift box, full of her favourite things. Nevertheless, these gifts don’t always need to be sentimental to be memorable since a nice piece of jewellery is something that will always remind them of your friendship and the great hen party that you are about to have.
Which type of gift you choose will often depend on your relationship with the bride-to-be since you don’t want to make her feel embarrassed or upset on her hen night. Stick to funny or classy gifts if you are a more recent friend and dare to venture down the more intimate and memorable path if you’re a long-standing friend of hers.
