Bachelorette 101: Bachelorette Party Gifts For the Bride

As I mentioned back in January, my best friend is getting married this August and I’m the Maid of Honor!  I admit, I’m a wedding rookie but since I consider myself a creative person with above average internet research skills, I felt pretty confident that I’d be able to throw a killer bachelorette party and do all my other MOH duties.  Oh yeah, I’m even getting down with the “MOH” abbreviations!  Anyway, the bride-to-be, like myself, isn’t into the whole cheesy put a penis on everything theme (thank god) but I still want to give her a traditional bach party…so what’s a MOH to do?  Well here’s what I’ll be gifting the bride…make sure to check back for pics from the actual bachelorette party in Atlantic City (weekend of July 8th!) and the actual wedding in Westchester County, NY (weekend of August 12th!).

Frederick’s Perfect Present Bra: All the “bride” rhinestone-encrusted tank tops kinda make me sick so when I saw this super cute, yet still totally sexy “perfect present” bra and panty set, I knew my girl D had to have it.  Plus, it’s got blue so the whole “something old, something new” thing is covered.

White Trash Sex Coupons: I think it’s super important to one, give something funny and personal to the bride and two, keep the personal gift within your sense of humor(s).  D and I have been sharing laughs for the last 13 years and we’ve had many inside jokes within the white trash rhealm.  If you don’t get it, that’s ok…but I know D will die when she sees this.

Booty Parlor Don’t Stop Massage Candle: You know I had to incorporate some beauty into my gifts.  This candle isn’t just any ordinary candle…it’s also massage lotion, once the candle has melted the wax down a bit.  It smells of exotic sandalwood vanilla (love) and the wax actually has good-for-you ingredients like shea butter, jojoba and vitamins A and E.

Bachelorette party gift ideas

So every year more and more of my friends are getting engaged and I’ll admit- I loathe this.  But what can you do?  If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, right?  Might as well have a little fun with the situation.  Here are my top three party favor ideas…and no, none of them have anything to do with a plastic penis.

FingerVibe – It’s teeny tiny and super quiet…the ultimate party favor for any bachelorette.

Booty Parlor Kissaholic Kissing Kit -An aphrodisiac plumping lip gloss and breathe mist, this duo (which comes in a naughty box shaped like a box of cigs) is really all you need for a night out.

Boobie Tassels -Admittedly, I really only think these are funny because the packaging actually says “Boobie Tassels.”



The anti-Valentine’s Day gift guide

So yeah…I don’t have a Valentine this year.  I actually think I may have jinxed myself back in the 11th grade when I decided to wear all black on Valentine’s Day, in protest, naturally.  But I digress.  You won’t find some “win your way into his heart” type of Valentine’s Day round up on THIS blog.  In fact, last year I did a “V-day, not VD” mini gift guide that featured sexually named hair gel and a quote from Lady GaGa about carbs and good sex.  Anyway, here’s my 2010 version- a rundown of super cool Valentine’s Day must-haves that you can use with someone or alone.

Bristols6 makes the sexiest Nippies, which, let’s be honest are cute for under clothing or just while wearing nothing else at all.

Booty Parlor Don’t Stop Massage Candle is pure genius, in my book.  It sounds too good to be true but this candle is actually also massage oil.  Yup, that’s right, ladies.  Does your BF have a hot wax fetish?  I hope not…but if he does, this is a good compromise.  The wax is made from a rich blend of shea butter, vitamins A &E, jojoba, olive and coconut oils and clean-burning natural soy wax.

Too Faced Mood Swing Lipgloss is emotionally-activated and high on shine.  Personally, I’m interested to see if a guy would even notice if I HAD lipgloss on but it would be pretty hilarious if, after burping at dinner, your lips suddenly turned hot pink.  Just saying.

Diptyque, one of my most favorite brands, came out with this fabulous candle – Rooibos vanilla, to be exact.  And, a portion of sales from this candle helps to provide medicine to people living with HIV.

I mean, this is probably NOT the most appropriate Valentine’s Day item if you actually do have a Valentine…but if you don’t, this is the only thing you really need (well, except maybe what you’re about to see…keep reading).  LUSH The Ex Factor bath bomb was inspired by a plan to rid the world of the memories of useless men, something every girl can use!

These look so innocent, don’t they?  Body Spa Vibrating Bath Sponges will add a little extra oomph while you’re taking your nice, relaxing bubble bath on the big day.
