16 Bridal Shower Gift Ideas for 2022 That She'll Love and Actually Keep
A record 2.5 million weddings are set to take place in 2022 alone, according to The New York Times. And if you aren't one of the people planning to get hitched this year, then you're likely still invited and at least planning to attend more than a few ceremonies. But before you make it to the big day, there are a few pre-wedding parties along the way that you'll have to find the perfect gift for -- including the bridal shower.
