Blog: Bridal Shower and Engagement Party Gifts

It’s that time of year: proposals in the park, beautiful bridal showers, and wedding weekends. We know wedding registries are very popular right now, but where’s the fun in that? Hello World offers a wide variety of unique and beautiful gifts that are perfect for wedding showers or engagement parties and are guaranteed to top any registry gift.


Bridal Showers: Registries are compiled to show guests the needs, wants, and style of the couple. But, if you want to up the “ooo factor” at the bridal shower (remember, your gifts are opened in front of the whole party) and stray from the registry, you can! Just make sure the gift is still in line with the couple’s tastes and needs (checking out the registry is a good way to get a feel for these things). Here are some examples of typical registry gifts and their Hello World counterparts.

Engagement Parties: If you know you will be attending several events for the wedding, you may not buy yet another gift. However, there are plenty of low-cost options to help kick off the celebrations and show your excitement and love for the couple without breaking the bank.

Decorative ring holders ($9.99) are an inexpensive gift that make a big impact and help the future bride take care of her new bling!

This elegant wine decanter ($34.99) is a great gift that helps start the celebrations right! 

A funny card with a nice handwritten message is a simple and inexpensive way to show you care!
