10 Bridal Shower Gift Ideas for When Everything on the Registry Is Taken
Wedding season means our weekends are full with bachelorette parties, bridal showers and nuptials. And with events still popping up on our calendars, it’s time to make finding the perfect gift a little easier. Especially when all the good stuff on the bride-to-be’s registry is taken.
1. Custom Round Cutting Board ($40): Order a custom cheese board for a personalized gift to the charcuterie-lovin’ newlyweds.
2. King + Queen Art Prints ($35): It’s playful newlywed wall art. Because if he’s the king, then baby, she’s his queen. Or so said Taylor Swift.
3. Citrus Floral Recipe Box + Cards ($34): So the happy couple can start creating (and keeping track of) their favorite recipes.
4. Rent the Runway Cocktail Party Kit ($32): A starter cocktail kit that’s perfect for two. It includes glasses, cocktail mixing supplies, coasters and a mixology guide.
5. Custom Address Stamp ($44): Here’s an easy way for the bride to spruce up her thank-you cards. It’s tailor made, with a dozen hand-drawn style options to choose from.
6. Etched Champagne Flutes Kit ($40): Handcraft a set of etched champagne flutes for the happy couple to toast in style.
9. Custom Initial Bracelet ($30): Customize a heartfelt gift with this dainty gold bracelet adorned with the couple’s initials.
10. U.S. Cities Print ($60) Whether it’s their current city or where they first met, this print is a thoughtful gift for the newlyweds to hang in their home.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
