While a few days in the Hamptons to celebrate the bride would of course be my favorite occasion out of all the wedding events, when it comes to gifting the bride-to-be, her shower is the best occasion leading up to her wedding day to treat her to something extra special.
When you're shopping for a bridal shower gift, Target offers everything a newlywed could need, from kitchen essentials to décor. If she's like Giada in the kitchen - or just wishes she was - you can't go wrong with a KitchenAid Stand Mixer or a set of Calphalon cookware.
It may seem like the bridal shower is all about the bride with endless pours of bubbly mimosas, silly party games and female chatter, but the gifts she'll tear open alongside her bridesmaids are for the couple to enjoy together.
When Target reached out to me to share what I love most about wedding season as a bridesmaid extraordinare, I fell for their wedding theme of "Be Yourself, Together." Couples who are not only comfortable to be themselves when they are around each other, but also support one another to be the best versions of themselves with unconditional love, are the relationships that stand the test of time.
