EDIBLE PRIZES FOR YOUR BRIDAL SHOWER
Mini bottles of wine or champagne make perfect prizes for bridal shower games - especially when you have a few winners (this happens when games require guests to break into teams and, therefore, win as a team). Buy in bulk (six packs or more) when on special and save yourself some money!

Whether you decide to cook up a storm or purchase from one of your local bakers, small baked goods packed neatly in little bags or boxes make for beautiful (and delicious) prize ideas! If you're hosting a themed bridal shower or party, this is also a great opportunity to get a little creative in the kitchen (you could bake biscuits or cupcakes to suit just about any theme/colour palette!).
Easy and loved by many - boxed chocolates not only make for cheap bridal shower prizes, but are also bound to be received with mouth watering smiles! Favourites, Malteasers, M&Ms, fancy truffles, or something a little extra (Baci is one of my faves!), there are so many choices when it comes to boxed chocolatey goodness that you'll have as much fun shopping for them as your winner will devouring them!

Wooden spoons are a must-have kitchen utensil, which means they would also make for fantastic bridal shower prize ideas! But rather than handing your beautiful winner a plain old wooden spoon, why not make things a little more exciting and present them with an engraved spoon instead?! From sweet messages to hilariously cheeky quotes, there are so many ways to bring the fun to the party with these gorgeous prizes!
TEALIGHT CANDLE HOLDERS
Candle holders make a beautiful addition to the home - so why not sue them as a prize option? From sleek, modern designs to rustic beauty, there are so many different types of holders on offer that you're bound to find one to suit the overall theme of your event!
Vases can be created out of anything. A pack of mini glass milk bottles minus the lids, unique jars that have been cleaned up, actual vases in a variety of colours and/or sizes. Alternatively, you could purchase one beautiful vase and have it displayed in a pretty box - the options for these game prizes for bridal showers are endless!
LIVING PRIZES FOR YOUR BRIDAL SHOWER
FLOWERS IN A VASE
Ok... so these were living! But they're just as beautiful in vases as they were in the garden! A great and inexpensive option for those who have yards full of colourful beauties; simply bunch them up, fasten with pretty ribbon and/or twine and place in small glass jars filled with water.
Just the name 'magic beans' sounds fun! These cute bridal shower game prize ideas have images or words engraved on their seed, meaning as they grow they will show a special message! Such a beautiful and unique gift that's also lasting.
★Click here to view a beautiful plantable heart pack★
I absolutely love the idea of plantable cards! They look beautiful and have an air of surprise about them (your guest won't know what the flower is until it grows!). Customise with a cute message (such as 'WINNER at Bec's Bridal Shower!') for extra fun.
★Click here to view beautiful indoor plants for sale★
Indoor pot plants that you've either potted up yourself or purchased from a store make wonderful prizes! They're beautiful, great for cleaning the air in your home AND will be a constant reminder of the fun had at your friend's bridal shower.
As you don't have to buy for the whole guest list, you have the chance to purchase in a size that suits you (big, small, on sale - it's your choice!). You can also go for any style of your choice... will they be cute? Prickly? Edible? The choice is yours!
★Click here to buy stunning seed packs★
Thoughtful, long lasting and eco-friendly, seeds make such a great gift. Meaning they would also make fabulous bridal shower prizes! Whether they are herbs, flowers or vegetables, the recipient is bound to be beyond happy with their winnings.

OTHER BRIDAL SHOWER PRIZE IDEAS
ADULT COLOURING BOOK
★Click to view a beautiful adult colouring book★
Adult colouring books are actually amazing! There is something about grabbing a pack of pencils and quietly filling in those gaps that’s really calming (plus the end picture looks GREAT because of your quality colouring in skills!). Package the book with some pretty pencils for a unique bridal shower prize idea that guests will love!
If you come across some reasonably priced, unique card games whilst out and about, consider grabbing a couple to use as prizes on the day of your event. Something that people can enjoy over dinner parties, with their children, etc. will be a welcome addition their gaming cupboard!
As with card games (mentioned above), puzzles are another great option to stock up on should they be on sale. Not only do they make wonderful prizes for bridal shower, but also make great gifts should no-one snap them up (that, or you could keep them yourself - don't underestimate the hours of fun a puzzle can provide your family!).
... AND FOR THE BIG WINNERS - HAMPERS!
COLD WEATHER CARE PACKAGE
Blankets, gloves, beanies, hot chocolate mix, fuzzy socks, hot water bottles, mugs, soup - there are so many fun filling ideas for cold weather care packages! Make the hamper as small or large as you like (budget depending, of course). You could even ditch the hamper idea all together and make these individual prizes!
A great prize for someone who has just moved into their new home, kitchen packs can be filled with anything from utensils (such as wooden spoons and egg flippers) to fun mugs, tea towels and aprons!
Pamper products displayed nicely in a small basket or box makes for a beautiful prize that will leave the winner feeling relaxed, refreshed and revitalised! Give the gift of pamper with face masks, bath bombs, candles, natural body scrubs, soaps and more. A simple yet effective hamper that will go down a treat!
If your bridal shower games prizes are of similar value, why not place them all into a basket and allow guests to pick their own should they win? This means your lovely friends will get something they actually like and can't wait to take home!
Make the games a little more fun by handing out tokens to winners rather than prizes. Why? Because at the end of the day, each winner can then redeem a prize depending on the amount of tokens they have (just like picking out toys after winning tickets at TimeZone!).
To set this up, simply bunch prizes into different groups on a table. Place small signs in front of each bunch letting party-goers know how many tokens they're worth. The more tokens, the more elaborate the prize (for example, 1 token = small box of chocolates, 10 tokens = cold weather care package). Those with the most tokens get to pick first!
