Bridal Shower Gift Reveal

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend’s sister got married! I had made her a Wedding Advent Calendar so that she could open a gift every day for two weeks leading up to the wedding. Even though I know she didn’t play by the rules, she still seemed to love it. So I thought I would list out the gifts inside!

Small gifts like these are great because they can be totally personalized to the bride. My boyfriend’s sister is kind of laid back so most of her gifts were just for fun or to build her an emergency kit for the day of the wedding. You could also definitely do a lingerie themed one, which would be great for a bachelorette party. I just tried keep all of the items I could in a blue or white color scheme.

13: Que Bella Relaxing Lavender Face Mask

12: Funky Pen – any cute pen will do!

11: Sticky Note Pad Set – for all of those last minute reminders

10: Essie Top Coat

9: Burts Bees Hand Salve, Cuticle Cream, and Lip Shimmer in Champagne

8: Fun Socks!

7: Tiny Journal (Papyrus is a great place to look)

6: Bride’s favorite chocolate or candy!

5: First set of emergency items- hand sanitizer, lint roller, small pack of bandaids

4: More fun socks!

3: Mini flossing brushes

2: Tide To Go Stick

1: Mini Sewing Kit

I Do: Pretty Cosmetic Bag (to put the emergency items in) – I got a floral one from Target that is no longer in stock but this is a cute option!

I was really thrilled when I saw that Anna had turned the board that the gifts were on into a photo display for the escort card table. It was really sweet, especially for someone who doesn’t typically craft!

Holiday Cheer

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Here are a couple highlights from mine.

On Christmas Eve, my grandparents came over and we opened gifts. I got some clothes, which I will post about later, and my big gift was a Pottery Barn McKenna Jewelry Box!

On Christmas Day, I went to the boyfriend’s house to see his family for a bit. It was his nephew’s first Christmas so the house was covered in toys. His mom got me some travel cases and a Style Me Pretty Wedding Book to get me started on my new career path. I’m really glad that everyone has been so supportive of my decision!

Jack got me the Kendra Scott Rose Gold Elle Earrings in Peach that I asked for! I’m taking him to a fancy mixology bar in NYC that he wants to go to as his present.

We then met up with my sister and took the train into NYC to see my dad and his fiancΓ©e. Before dinner at Smith and Wollensky, we opened gifts and had some snacks.

Hope everyone’s holidays were just as happy as mine!
