DESTINATION42.COM — So you’ve received the invite with plenty of pink and maybe even a comical phallus or two letting you know immediately that a raucous bachelorette party is in your future.
But before you strap on your stilettos and buy that bride-to-be a shot you’ve got to get her a gift. And if you aren’t into swinging by a sex shop or trashy lingerie store on your lunch hour – or you just want to get a little more creative – we’ve got the solution.
These bachelorette party gifts have all the hallmarks of the classics: they’re sexy and fun. But more importantly, they’re items the bride will truly enjoy and almost certainly gift ideas that no one else at the bachelorette party will have thought of.
A subscription to Enclosed, a panty-of-the-month service
For a bride that’s more into classy than trashy, the Enclosed service is perfect. Each month she’ll receive a lovely box filled with flower petals and a pair of high-end knickers based on her style from brands like Maison Close, Eberjey and Lou Paris. You can get the bride a one, three, six or 12-month subscription (each month is about $50) so it’s a great idea for a solo gift or if the bridal party wants to go in on one big thing together. Plus it’ll give her something to look forward to after the wedding as well.
2. Enroll her in a champagne club
Similar to Enclosed, but for a bride who’s not so into lingerie, a champagne club like the one fromChandon will send her two to three bottles six times a year, so she can sample bruts, rosés and cuvées with the fancy champagne flutes she registered for. There are also special perks when she visits the winery (maybe on another girls’ trip or with her partner). The cost is about $80 per month, you can order as many months as you’d like and she’ll have the option to continue on her own after that.
3. Get a Love Is Art Kit for both of them to enjoy
For something a little more risqué, but still very classy, the Love Is Art Kit is a fun idea. Created by South African artist Jeremy Brown, the kits include a blank canvas and all-natural, non-toxic paint and start at $60. Couples lay down the canvas, add a little paint and … well … take it from there. There are even two pairs of disposable slippers to get you from the bed to the bathroom after and a body scrubber to help clean up. After the couple create their masterpiece they can get their canvas mounted (that’s what she said) and smile to themselves whenever someone compliments their “beautiful painting.”
