Updated: Jun 14, 2023



Ladies, the countdown to the big day is on, and it's time to show your bestie some love with an unforgettable hen party! It's the ultimate celebration amidst the wedding planning madness and the perfect opportunity to shower the bride-to-be with some classy and chic hen party gifts.

But with so many options out there, it can be tough to know what to get her. Don't panic - we've put together a list of 15 fantastic hen party gifts that the bride-to-be is sure to love. No showy flashing tiaras or L plates here! Just all the classy goodies you need to spoil her before the big day.


1. Personalised Jewellery


When it comes to hen party accessories, a little extra effort goes a long way - nothing shows you care like a personalised gift made just for the bride!


Now, while jewellery may seem clichéd, a dainty necklace or bracelet is the perfect combination of chic and sentimental - one of the best hen party accessories, in our opinion! You can have it customised with the initials of the happy couple's first names, just her name, or simply "Mrs." Either way, she's sure to love it!


The best part about this gift idea? Personalised jewellery is one of the most exciting presents to find in hen party bags. And you can find personalised pieces that fit every budget.


2. Customised Jacket or Dressing Gown


A customised jean jacket or silk dressing gown is an excellent hen party gift for a fashion-forward bride. Not only is it practical, but it's also a super cute and stylish way to show your appreciation for the soon-to-be Mrs.


Imagine the bride's face lighting up when she opens her gift and sees her new jacket or dressing gown with her name, wedding dates, or even a fun phrase embroidered on it. Every time she wears it, she'll think of the amazing time she had at her hen party surrounded by her squad.


So, why not spoil her with this awesome gift? It will definitely be a staple in her honeymoon bag!


3. Hen Party Memory & Message Book


Looking for a hen party gift that will make the bride-to-be feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Then treat her with a lovely memory and message book! This thoughtful gift is the perfect sentimental touch to her celebrations and she's sure to cherish it for years to come.


Personalise the book with the bride's name, hen party date, and favourite colour to make it extra special. Print out your favourite moments with the bride and add funny captions and little inside jokes to make it totally unique. You can also leave a section for photos of the hen party, so the bride can remember all the hilarious and wacky moments.


If you want to show the bride-to-be how much she is loved and cherished, then there's no better hen party gift than this one.


4. Makeup Bag


We all know a cosmetics bag is an essential item that every makeup lover needs, and having one that's both beautiful and personalised makes it even better. Whether the bride-to-be is a beauty guru or simply loves to keep her essentials organised, a monogrammed makeup bag is the perfect gift.


Choose a bag that matches her style and personality, and customise it with her name, initials, or a fun phrase. If you want to go the extra mile and get the whole of "Team Bride" involved, you can snag some matching makeup bags too! It's a great way to show your appreciation for your closest gal pals. Plus, you'll all look cohesively chic with your co-ordinated accessories!


5. Personalised Passport Cover and Travel Label


Send the bride-to-be on her honeymoon or next jet-setting trip in style with a personalised passport cover and travel label. She'll be keeping her passport safe while looking sophisticated on her travels!


Passport covers and travel labels come in a variety of colours and designs and can be easily personalised with the bride's initials or a fun, travel-themed phrase. You can have it embroidered with fun phrases like "Jet me outta here!" or even get matching His & Hers/Hers & Hers passport covers with a sweet phrase like "To a lifetime of adventures together."


This travel set is a hen party and honeymoon gift rolled into one, and we guarantee it will have the bride-to-be itching for her next big trip!


6. A Cookbook with the Bride-to-Be's Favourite Recipes


If you're looking for hen party gift ideas for a foodie bride, why not create a personalised cookbook with all her favourite recipes? While this gift requires you to get crafty, it's thoughtful and a great way to ensure the bride-to-be will never go hungry in married life!


Include recipes that hold special meaning to her - a grandparent's famous Yorkshire pudding, for example, or a best friend's wonderfully flaky scones. Don't forget to add a little joke or sweet note like, "Recipe for a happy marriage," or "A sweet treat after a rough day".


So, get creative and give your best friend the gift of deliciousness to share with her new spouse.


7. Hanging Photo Wall


Hen party gifts don't always need to be a special item you wrap up and gift; they can also be cool hen party accessories! A wonderful idea for a hen party bash is a hanging photo wall filled with the bride-to-be's favourite memories.


You can include photos from childhood, funny moments with her bridal party, and memories of the bride's relationship with her soon-to-be spouse. To make the photo wall pop, decorate it with fairy lights or balloons.


This idea is perfect for capturing the spirit of the hen party. Plus, you can use it as a backdrop for photo ops!


8. Luxurious Pyjamas


Who doesn't love a luxurious matching set of pyjamas? Make the bride-to-be feel pampered and relaxed with a beautiful set of high-quality pyjamas. They're perfect for the wedding night and the honeymoon.


Choose a set to match the bride's style and your budget. While silky pyjamas are luxurious and breezy, a cosy flannel set will be significantly less pricey and can be just as chic. You can add a personal touch with the bride's initials embroidered on it, or pair it with a matching set of slippers. This is the time to spoil your friend rotten!


9. "Mrs X" Sun Hat


If you're planning a beachy hen party or sending the couple off on their honeymoon to a sunny destination, a sun hat with a "Mrs" and her future surname embroidered on it is the perfect addition to her hen party accessories.


Not only will a beautiful personalised sun hat protect her from the sun, but it also makes for some great photos. You can even get matching (and customised) hats for the rest of the bridal party.


So, let the bride-to-be show off her new status in style on her honeymoon with this fun and classy gift!


10. Pre-Wedding Pamper Kit


Let's face it, planning a wedding can be stressful, and the bride deserves to feel relaxed before the big day. With a pamper kit, you can help her unwind and indulge in some much-needed self-care.


Put together a range of items to create the perfect pamper kit for her hen party. Pack in some luxurious body cream, a posh bubble bath, and a few facemasks. You could also include a scented candle, a mini bottle of bubbles, and some sweet treats to give this lucky lady the ultimate spa treatment.


But the bride is not the only one stressed! Her maid of honour and bridesmaids are probably too - so why not include a mini pamper kit in the hen party bags?


11. Cute Instant Film Camera


The hen party and wedding are priceless moments for every soon-to-be Mrs, and what better way to capture these lovely memories than with instantly printed photos?


The Fujifilm Instax Instant Camera is an excellent gift that can be treasured for years to come. It provides the bride with everything she needs to capture every special moment of her hen party, wedding, and honeymoon festivities.


All the hens can chip in to get this wonderful gift. And, if it's in your price range, consider getting the full set: a chic case, a few packs of instant film, and a photo album - how precious is that?


12. Rose Gold Cocktail Making Set


Few hen parties are complete without some yummy cocktails - right? Why settle for plain old wine glasses when you can spoil the bride-to-be with a rose gold cocktail-making set!


This gift is the perfect way to keep the hen party going in style. The rose gold finish is totally on-trend and adds a touch of class to any soirée. You can find sets that come complete with everything needed to whip up some fabulous cocktails: a shaker, tongs, cleaning brushes and more.


Plus, Team Bride gets the luxury of enjoying this special gift too. Be sure to shake up some yummy mixtures before heading out on the hen night! If the bride isn't much of a drinker, you can swap this out for a beautiful tea set instead.


13. Monogrammed Tote Bag


For the hen party, honeymoon, or any other occasion that calls for a sizeable bag, a beautiful monogrammed tote bag will be a go-to option even when the bride-to-be is no longer a bachelorette!


This style of bag is the perfect size for storing all her essentials, from beach accessories to gym or business stuff, making it a versatile gift that can be used long after the hen party and honeymoon.


If you're feeling extra generous, why not get one for all the bridesmaids too? It also makes for excellent hen party bags to pack in special gifts and keepsakes for the weekend.


14. Wine Box Subscription


Whether the bride is a wine connoisseur or just simply loves her glass of vino, a wine box subscription is definitely a go-to gift. This is, quite literally, a gift that keeps on giving - allowing you to shower the bride with love over and over again!


You'll be happy to know there are plenty of great wine subscription services in the UK to choose from, allowing the bride to customise her box to her preferred taste. She'll be in for a surprise every month with a lovely selection of wine - now that's what we call a "Happy wife, happy life" kind of gift!


15. Ring Dish or Box


We can think of no better way for a bride to store her new prized possession than with a lovely personalised ring dish or box. It's not just a pretty piece, it's also practical!


If one of the members of Team Bride is particularly crafty, why not have them make a ring dish with glazed clay? Not only is it incredibly thoughtful, but you'll be able to customise the dish with a stunning design, plus the couple's initials and wedding date.


Should you opt for the ring box instead, you can find an array of customisable options that even have space for the bride's other sentimental pieces. There's no doubt she'll love and cherish this gift.
