If you are looking for a different bridal shower theme, consider throwing a 24-hour shower, which is also known as an around-the-clock shower. Guests are given a specific or general time of the day, such as 9 a.m. or breakfast time, and have to tailor their gifts around it. The bride will get all sorts of useful items and it's fun for everyone to guess which time the guest received.
If you have to buy a morning gift for a 24-hour bridal shower, you're in luck. There are all sorts of gifts to choose from. Buy something breakfast-themed, such as a waffle iron, an espresso machine, a pancake griddle or a quiche pan. Most people get dressed for work in the morning, so you can also go for an alarm clock, matching bathrobes or a massaging shower head.
Buy the new couple something they can use around lunch time. Think about casual dishes for a lunch outside on the porch. If it's the weekend, the couple could do something together at noon, such as go on a picnic. Buy a picnic basket loaded with all sorts of supplies, such as plates, glasses, a blanket and napkins.
For an evening gift, think about dinner time. All sorts of kitchen products are appropriate, such as a pizza stone, a rice cooker or a cake pan. Also, consider something the couple could do in the evening. Buy them a gift certificate to a local movie theater or to their favorite restaurant. Some people enjoy taking a relaxing bath in the evening, so think about buying luxurious bath products, such as body wash, bubble bath and scented candles.
If you receive the late-night time frame, buy the couple a nice new set of sheets. Lingerie is also appropriate for late night, if you want to purchase that for the bride. Alternatively, choose a soft blanket or a few books the couple can read in bed. DVDs that they would enjoy are also good late-night gifts.
