Cramming to buy a present for your best friend who’s getting married soon? Can’t think of anything else to give that will fit a certain budget? Who says buying something adorable or useful has to be expensive? Here are Glamourbox’s seven affordable yet brilliant gift suggestions for that upcoming bridal shower.

1. Lingerie and Sexy Nightgowns

This, of course, is probably the go-to gift of every crazy female friend who wants to give the bride a fun present before the big day. It can range from barely-there G-strings to extremely sexy corsets—but where to buy these is the question in mind.

La Senza, with branches in Bonifacio High Street, Greenbelt, Alabang Town Center, Rockwell, TriNoma, Eastwood, Newport Mall, The Podium, Robinsons Galleria, and Mall of Asia, offers a number of hot trends and playful lingerie at extremely guilt-free prices! The styles and designs are limitless, that you’ll want to buy some even for yourself!

Around P500-P1500.

2. Certificate for a Spa Day

Whether a whole body massage, or a foot spa package with manicure and pedicure, the soon-to-be-bride will surely love you for it. It’s something she can use when stressing over the big day, or during the big day itself!

The Spa offers Wellness Gift Cards available in P500, P1000, P1500, P2000, and P5000. You can visit their branches in Alabang, Eastwood, Rockwell, Bonifacio High Street, Greenbelt, and TriNoma 

Around P500-P5000.

3. Picture Frame (with picture)

If you’re the more sentimental type of friend, you can get the bride an elegant picture frame by Grassroots  with a picture of your barkada in it. It’s a very meaningful gift she can display in her new home with the future hubby. 

Grassroots branches are located in Greenbelt 5, Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Alabang, and Market! Market!

Around P1000-P3000.

4. Coffee-Table or Recipe Book

Is the bride a bookworm? Is she into food or traveling? Why not get her something that incorporates two of the things she likes? If she loves to read and travel at the same time, you can get her a coffee-table book of her favorite destination spot. Or if she loves food, a recipe book that contains ingredients to her favorite dishes will give her even more ideas to spice up that romance with the groom.

Visit Fully Booked in Bonifacio High Street, Rockwell, Greenhills Promenade, Gateway, SM Mall of Asia, SM North Edsa, TriNoma, Katipunan, Greenbelt 5, Glorietta 3, or Waltermart Makati.

Around P1000-3000.

5. Personalized His and Her Towels

If you want a more personal feel to your gift, buy a set of bathroom towels that the Mr. and Mrs. can use in their future home together. If you have an idea of how their home looks like, you can match the towels with the bathroom theme. Have the towels embroidered with the future last name of the bride.

Around P500-P2000.

6. Flip Flops

Are the bride and groom going to the beach for their honeymoon? Why not get her a cute pair of Havaianas she can wear to their trip?

Check out All Flip Flops located in Glorietta 3, TriNoma, Bonifacio High Street, SM Mall of Asia, and Alabang Town Center to see the latest designs!
