Classic shower gifts include traditional home items, such as towels, linens, fine china, vases and picture frames. Even brides with modern tastes may appreciate classic gifts. Classic gifts that may appeal to both the bride and groom include coffee or espresso makers, barware, and lingerie.

Contemporary bridal shower gifts are those that consider the tastes of the bride and groom and often prove to be very thoughtful. Museum memberships, travel gear and spa certificates are great examples of modern gifts. For more inspiration, consider the theme of the wedding or the honeymoon destination. For the adventurous couple, scuba gear or ski equipment makes a fun and exciting gift.

Themed showers provide the basis for a sound starting point. Wine glasses and a bottle of champagne are great choices for a nighttime round-the-clock designation. Cleaning supplies, while not romantic, make thoughtful pantry gifts for a room-to-room shower. Robes, slippers and pajamas are discreet options for lingerie showers that are appropriate for the bride, the gift-giver and the bride's grandmother.
