Should guests bring gifts? What are some good gifts to bring?

At a bridal shower, guests are expected to bring presents as you’re meant to “shower” the bride with gifts. Typically the bride has a registry list which the bridal shower host can send to all the guests. Purchasing something from the registry list is the easiest way to pick a gift you know the bride will appreciate since she herself chose it. The point of the shower is to prepare the future couple to establish their home together so purchasing something that is either useful or sweet and thoughtful is your best bet. If you want to bring something other than a kitchen appliance, some fun ideas include a gift certificate to a spa, tickets to a theater show, a gardening set, lingerie, and massage oils
