Last Minute Festive Gift Guide For Brides

It’s that time of year again and Bridal Editor’s festive last minute gift guide for brides is back. 

It’s the season for losing your mind over the tangled fairy lights, getting lost amongst the rails and rails (and rails) of glittering threads and velvet jumpsuits and last minute panic shopping for the bride in your life. Luckily for you, I’ve taken the time to curate an edited list of luxury items I know your bride will love. From the sole mates she’s been dreaming over for the aisle (bonjour, Christian Louboutin) to that bespoke Custom Neon sign that’ll look epic from wedding to WAY after, this festive gift guide is stuffed with unforgettable last minute gift ideas. 

P.S. And, don’t forget to copy, paste and share this URL with your partner-to-be – now THAT’S what we call a hint.

Ready? In no particular order, let’s go… 

#1 Rime Arodaky Gift Card 

If your bride has been endlessly scrolling the Rime Arodaky feed (not to mention fawning over the French designer’s heavenly gowns and contemporary accessories) a digital Rime Arodaky gift card (valid for only year from the date of issue) is a must. And, FYI? It can be applied to the entire Rime Arodaky Collection! Why not help her buy her dream dress? Or help her secure those dream shoes (got to love Nomi). 

#2 A Little Something From Olivia & Pearl 

If, like me, your bride is a lover of pearls, there’s some seriously enchanting, serious stocking filler-appropriate jewellery pieces available at Olivia & Pearl. Starting with the label’s Starlet Pearl Ring (available in Rose Gold, Sterling Silver and Yellow Gold), and followed swiftly by the brand’s Link Chain Bracelet and Baroque Pearl Charm Gold Set and cool Seed Pearl Empress Ring

#3 Christian Louboutin 

If you’re really looking to cause a stir this Christmas, why not hide that pair of dream Christian Louboutins that she’s been fawning over for the aisle under the tree? Whether it’s the luxury label’s divine Condora Queen Plume sandal in fiery pink or classic black satin (from Louboutin’s SS24 S1 Collection) or something a little more traditional like their iconic Hot Chick 100mm Pumps Bianco, there’s no doubt it’ll be love at first sight. 

#4 Custom Neon

Whether you want to surprise her with an epic neon sign for the wedding day or hen party, or gift your bride something neon for the house, knock her cashmere socks off this festive season with a bespoke lighting design by Custom Neon. Playful, fun and completely customisable, it’s the gift that’ll keep on giving.

#5 Matilde Jewellery 

Crafted from 14k recycled yellow gold, Matilde’s Astra Cuff will add that elegant edge to sleek bridal lines or a tailored bridal suit this 2024. Looking to deliver a sustainable alternative without compromising on quality or design, Matilde brings a selection of truly beautiful pieces to the table. Second on our Matilde Wishlist? Those Tempest Earrings, followed hastily by the other pieces that have arrived as part of the brand’s Super Cluster collection. 

#6 Emm Kuo 

Founded by Emmaline Ranzman, accessory label Emm Kuo will fast become a label for brides to love (if they haven’t discovered it already). Proffering a heavenly selection of truly unique, enchanting bags – including some rather extraordinary bridal options – brides will immediately become seduced by their whimsical offering. Why not select something for the aisle (so she can keep those wedding day essentials close at hand) or a design she’ll never want to let go of for the honeymoon? I’m particularly taken with the label’s Pearl and Swarovski Crystal Le Sirenuse beauty for the aisle, or the stunning Bora Bora options for the honeymoon. 

#7 A Little YSL Beauty Magic… 

Meet the YSL Beauty Rogue Sur Mesure lipstick personalisation device, something your bride-to-be might never expect to find under the tree this festive season (but will be instantly delighted to). The first personalised lip colour creator (that allows you to create up to 4000 lipstick shades, FYI) not only means your bride will be able to create a bespoke lip shade in a beautiful creamy, velvet-matte finish for the aisle, but she’ll be able to keep it close to hand on the big day itself (as the device arrives with a nifty compact and lip brush so she can easily top up throughout the day. And, why not team it with the label’s YSL Libre Eau De Perfume 90ml and Lash Clash Gift Set

#8 Cosy Stocking Fillers 

Gift guide

These adorable pom pom slippers from Pretty You London have got bride written all over them. Sumptuous, cosy and perfect for donning on the morning of the wedding, they’re ideal for popping in the bride’s stocking! But, which colour will you pick? I’m torn between Dolly in White and Dolly in Pink (obviously). 

#9 Nea Milano 

Gift guide

Why not discover Italy-based, fine art accessories and hair jewellery designer, Nea Milano this Christmas? And, in particular, the label’s divine Statement Pearl Choker, Reena. This truly enchanting piece plays host to a cascade of the designer’s favourite baroque and Mallorca pearls and will immediately bring a cool, luxurious edge to your bridal look this coming 2024. 


Gift guide

It’s the club every bride wants to be part of. Last year I featured their coveted Lepelclub Pearl Glass Coupe in Pink and this year it’s all about their bow-utiful new arrivals: the Bow Coupe Clear, Bow Straws and Bow Spoons. Elevate your festive cocktail hour this season with these gorgeous new arrivals! Head to LEPELCLUB’s BOWTIQUE immediately.

#11 Sophia Webster 

Gift guide

It wouldn’t be a last minute bridal Christmas gift list without some amazing picks from the one and only Sophia Webster! Whether you’ve been fawning over the designer’s iconic Cleo Wifey For Lifey clutch, those Delicia Marabou Mules (that, FYI, are currently on sale), the glittering gold Royalty Glass Sandal or signature Boss Lady Pumps (cos’ your brides a boss lady) a treat from Sophia Webster under the tree is always on a girl’s Christmas wishlist. 

#12 Grace Loves Lace 

Gift guide

There’s just something about the cool, elegant accessories of Australian bridal powerhouse, Grace Loves Lace. Why not surprise your bride with the label’s achingly cool Artemis Anklets (perfect for pairing with a simple nude two-strap sandal for the aisle) or pop a pair of the brand’s Essie or Indi earrings in a glossy bauble for her to find on the tree? 

#13 Glitter away in Steve Madden 

Gift guide
Womens Shoes

A pair of Steve Madden’s Lyanna-R Bootie Crystal ankle boots will glitter beautifully under the tree this festive season – not to mention elevate your bride’s bridal style for the aisle or evening (especially if she’s hoping to wear a bridal mini for the afterparty)! And, why not go the extra mile and pair these beauties with label’s BMaxima Crossbody Bag in White? It’s a no-brainer for the hen party!

Meet Peachy Parrot, a brand that infuses beautiful textures and colours into – what may have previously been – ordinary homeware pieces. I’m already besotted with their sumptuous Palm Beach Shower Mat, not to mention that gorgeously vibrant Desert Palm Cushion! Why not surprise her with something fabulous for the home?

#15 Let’s Disco 

Gift guide

Whether she’s planning a Last Disco themed hen party or just loves their glittery allure and wants multiple mirror balls for the wedding decor, why not kickstart the mirror ball collecting this Christmas and tuck her first one in her stocking? We love this Beyond Christmas Mirror Ball Decoration, Large by John Lewis

#16 Tied With A Bow 

Make sure your wrapping is on-point this 2023 and embrace the wedding industry’s current love affair with bows! And, in particular velvet bows! Tie them around the bride’s gifts, wrap them around her favourite champagne coupes and the Christmas tree’s branches – basically pin them here, there and everywhere! This sumptuous Winter Fairytale Pink Velvet Ribbon Duo from John Lewis is ideal! 

#17 Festive Feels with Oliver Bonas

If she’s, like me, a huge fan of Schitt’s Creek, the bride will love Baked By Steph’s ‘Santa Bebe’ Letterbox Cookie. A cute (and delicious) treat for the festive season!
