Flower Arrangement

Who doesn’t love a pop of color to their home? A flower arrangement is a great idea for a prize because they can double as decorations during the shower and not be wasted when guests leave. This double-purpose makes flower arrangements a sustainable and budget-friendly prize.

Self-Care Basket

The Bride’s Favorite Product(s)

To add a personalized touch, have the bride pick out a few of her favorite products and purchase those as prizes! These products can be a kitchen gadget, beauty product, or hair accessory. The possibilities are really endless!


Send guests home with a bottle of wine as a prize! To add a personalized touch to this gift, choose the bride’s favorite wine and add a label, like the one below. It can be purchased on Etsy.

Cheese Board

While a cheese board is probably an item many people wouldn’t purchase for themselves, it is definitely something most guests would’ve to go home with! Consider this 3 piece board option from Amazon, complete with an Arcadia wood platter, cheese knife, and cheese fork.

Locally Sourced Goods

This is a great option if your guests are traveling from out of town to attend your shower. Provide locally sourced items, like soap, snacks, and novelties. In Virginia, a great choice is Virginia Diner Peanuts.

Hair Accessories

Everyone loves hair accessories! Available at almost any store, this is a versatile option. Consider choosing accessories from Teleties, like their signature hair ties or flat hair clips.


Like a flower arrangement, a plant can be utilized as decoration and a gift. For those guests with a green thumb, they’ll love to receive another plant!

Gift Card

This is a great prize, especially for a co-ed shower. Go for a crowd pleasing option like Amazon or the Bride’s favorite store/coffee shop.

Travel Size Beauty Kit

A sample or travel size beauty set is another nice choice. These are readily available, especially around the holidays. A budget-friendly idea is to stock up on Black Friday or other holiday sales for an upcoming shower. A personal favorite is the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Jet Set.
