Bride to be – Christmas Gift Ideas

Sometimes it’s so hard to think of something ‘different’ to buy a loved one.  If you have a ‘Bride to be’ on your list then I am here to help! How lovely to get them something relating to their big day.  This year more than ever the emphasis is even more on the milestone events we have been known to take for granted. 


I want people to love the gifts I buy them, but also to know that I put a lot of thought into what I was buying for them.  So I have put together my favourite ‘Bride to be’ gift ideas for Christmas 2020 and I thought I would share them with you.  In-fact this guide will apply for any occasion, not just for Christmas.  The businesses mentioned are all Northern Ireland based with online shopping facilities.



Stacey from S.A.K Make Up has so many options.  Skincare and make up gift sets and even make up application lessons.  Stacey has also created her very own self care box with the most brilliant name!  Check them out below.  Any of these make the perfect gift for a ‘bride to be’ who is striving to look after her skin in preparation for her big day or try out some new cosmetics.

Lorna at Little Pearl Co has all the sparkle you’re looking for!  Every bride needs jewellery on their big day don’t they?  Bridal jewellery is very much a personal choice so a gift voucher is the perfect idea.  They can go along to a consultation with Lorna at a time that suits and choose exactly what they want to match their wedding dress.  There are lots of bridesmaid gift ideas too.  FYI Lorna doesn’t just do bridal jewellery!  If you’re looking for a sparkly gift for anyone (or yourself), go and check out the Little Pearl Co website.

Jade Alexandra Bridal is a popular bridal studio based in Northern Ireland.  As well as beautiful bridal gowns Jade also stocks a range of bridal accessories online.  She even has her own candle and Christmas card range!  Head over to her website.  If you love pink and pampas, you are going to love it!

How could I not include our little sister Gemma’s Cookie Co.  It’s been a tough year for our brides, there have been postponements and there have been tears.  Order a surprise box of cookies to be sent directly to the door of your favourite bride to remind them they have a wedding to look forward to.  Add your own personal message for the gift card so they know it’s from you.

Needing no introductions Galgorm Resort & Spa is steeped in luxury.  As always gift vouchers are available for use throughout the hotel.   I think an Afternoon Tea or a Spa Day would be a dream for a bride to be right now.  The stresses of this year will melt away in one afternoon.  It’s on our doorstep but you really could be anywhere in the world when you’re at Galgorm.
