The holidays are upon us, friends, and we're feeling it in a major way!

Number One

We can't say enough good things about the this wedding planner! Whether you know a bride-to-be who just started her planning journey and is looking to get organized, or you want to gift a bride-to-be more of a wedding planning scrapbook, this wedding planner fits the bill. It's a can't miss item for the bride who just said "yes"!


Number Two

We have a sweet spot for adorable getting ready shots from the wedding morning. Gift the bride-to-be the perfect bridal white robe that she'll be able to use well after the big day. 


Number Three

Sentimental ornaments will forever trump the color-coordinated set that can be purchased at Target. We love this hand calligraphed ornament from Etsy and it will certainly be a treasured memory every Christmas. 


Number Four

Once you're engaged, there's a sudden slue of events to attend which can leave even the chicest of ladies struggling to find something to wear. Sounds like the perfect reason to gift these simple but statement-making studs. These beautiful pearl and gold earrings will give the bride a little bit of sparkle that can be worn from the engagement party to the rehearsal dinner.  


Number Five

Dress fittings, cake tastings, floral appointments -- oh, and the rest of your life too! There's nothing like getting married to make your schedule even more packed than you thought possible, and a great day planner can be a game changer. The Simplified Planner from Emily Ley is the daily planning tool that we swear by - it has space for appointments, to-do lists, meal planning and other notes - the perfect gift for a Type A bride. We're also loving this elegant leather planner from Inslee - I mean we can never get enough Bridal White! 


Number Six

A hanger. It may not seem like the most charming of gifts, but we can't tell you how many brides get to the two week mark and realize the only hanger to hold the most special of dresses on their wedding morning is the plastic hanger from the bridal salon. We love this gold bow hanger as an alternative to the wire hangers you see all over Pinterest. 


Number Seven

Details make the difference on wedding day, and we've never met a photographer who doesn't love a good ring box. We love to gift these velvet ring boxes (they can even be monogrammed!) in a shade of the bride's wedding colors. 


Number Eight

We believe that one of the beautiful parts of the season of engagement is planning for a meaningful marriage. Gift the newly engaged couple in your life this book that encourages them to continue to learn more about one another. We love that the journal spans three years - allowing couples to see life grow from engagement to marriage and beyond! 


Number Nine

The number of pictures you take once you're engaged seems to multiply exponentially. Help the bride beautifully display engagement and wedding photos throughout the house with these timeless brushed Crate & Barrel frames. We also love these Target dupes at a more affordable price point. 


Number Ten

Whether you're engaged or not, we can all agree that there is no gift more valued than the gift of relaxation. Gift this unique set of face masks, along with her favorite candle, to encourage the bride-to-be to take a little time for self-care.
