As most 2009 holidays are now behind us, we're guessing you put your gift lists to bed weeks ago. Just in case you're giving any belated holiday presents, or know a bride with an upcoming winter birthday, here are a few great gifts received by some of our engaged friends.
1) A name-changing kit. MissNowMrs.com is a website specializing in making name changing a breeze. You can find other kits on Amazon.com too. For around $30, that gift won't burn a hole in your wallet either.
2) A tote bag, bathrobe, or a makeup bag featuring her new monogram. Depending on her style, Neiman Marcus, L.L. Bean, or specialty retailers offer great options for monogramming practically anything. Check out these adorable cosmetic bags from beau-coup.com:
One bride-to-be we know is giving these to each of her bridesmaids as part of their bridesmaid gifts. Genius!
3) One friend and her fiancé received some cool artwork. Landmark photos are one popular gift idea, sold online or at specialty boutiques.
Isn't that sweet?
Another creative gift idea we heard about was a gift basket containing a few chick flick DVDs, popcorn, and coupons for a girls' night in. And when in doubt, a gift off her registry or a gift card to a store she likes are also sure-fire winners.
