4 Bachelorette Presents for the Modern Bride-to-Be

By Alice Bradford

While you're not actually expected to give presents to the bride in her bachelorette party, it's still a good idea to bring one. After all, it is a momentous occasion, and probably the last party that the bride is sharing with her closest friends as a single lady. So, do pull out all the stops to make this get-together a truly memorable one. You and the gals can buy gifts individually, or better yet, chip in to get the bride a present she'd love. To help you choose, here are four gift ideas for the modern bride-to-be:


Wine is a timeless gift for lots of reasons. A perfectly picked bottle of wine can be shared with friends or a loved one on several occasions. But it's crucial to select a bottle that the bride will definitely enjoy, so do some research to determine her personal taste before choosing a final product.

Check out our selection of great wine at the Thirsty Nest Bottle Shop. Chances are you'll find the perfect bottle for your friend, like the Amarone Classico 2009 Bertani or the Beringer 2018 Chardonnay.

Hi-Tech Rice Cooker

The best gifts are essentials that the couple can use for a long time. A no-fail one is a rice cooker, which the bride and groom can use to cook not just rice, but other dishes, too – grains, pancakes, pudding, frittata, and even cakes and mac 'n' cheese.

When choosing a rice cooker , keep in mind that aside from hi-tech features like smart control and multi-cook functionality, there are also tons of designs and color options available. So, look for one that jives with the bride’s aesthetic preferences — whether minimalist, colorful, or something else. In this way, you’ll be giving something that is both useful and will match her new home.

Lingerie Subscription

A subscription is a gift that keeps on giving long after the party. And a good one for the bride-to-be is a lingerie subscription. It guarantees a constant supply of designer lingerie, and is a chic way to add spice to the future bride’s underwear collection.

The best part is that you can choose a subscription according to her desired style. Some brands offer a selection of panties, while others give complete lingerie sets that include loungewear.

Robot Vacuum Cleaner

If you're willing to shell out a little more than usual, you might want to gift the bride-to-be a robot vacuum cleaner. It’s great for light, automatic maintenance, and will reduce the amount of time the future couple will have to spend cleaning their home. This will be helpful as they adjust to married life.

When choosing a model, remember that the more advanced it is (think sophisticated room mapping tech), the more expensive it will be. That said, there are models in the $200−$300 range that are hi-tech enough to keep room floors dust- and dirt-free. It's still quite the price tag, but it'll definitely help the couple for years to come.

Still unsure? Then, ask the bride-to-be to fill up a wedding registry here on Thirsty Nest!
