Let’s set the record straight: we’re huge fans of basicness. Yes, we make fun of basic b**** stuff every now and again, but that’s because we’re as basic as they come. We love a good just-engaged selfie, cheesy engagement photos, pink-themed bridal showers, mix and match bridesmaids dresses, obligatory bridal party snaps you have to have on your shot list. We love them all. And to be honest, so does pretty much every bride out there RN. And that’s okay!
While you definitely want to make sure your big day has some personal touches that aren’t overdone, just so you can be sure you put your own stamp on it, your bridal shower and bachelorette can be as regular as possible. In fact, I have it on good authority that even with the crazy bachelorette party trend going strong, brides are still tapping into their basicness - whether that be with foodie fun (chips and gauc, queso everything, cupcakes, champagne gummy bears, etc.), a rose gold, blush pink, or Barbie Palm Beach-style neon color palette, or personalized gifts for the girl squad that aren’t optional, but required. That means if the bride wants up-your-ass, conversational one-pieces to be a thing for the weekend, then you wear it, smile, and try not to think about the flimsy, not-forgiving, neoprene fabric currently flossing your cheeks 😘.
We’ve rounded up 12 of the most basic, but totally boss bachelorette gift ideas for anyone who will be traveling with their bride tribe anytime soon. And when we say that, we’re specifically thinking about the bach bashes planned in hotspots like Nashville, Tulum, Tuscany, Santorini, Savannah, you know, all those places that are so off the radar. HAHA.
We kid, we kid. No really, these locales are so loved, we can’t even - so, crank the volume on that oh-so-basic bachelorette playlist of yours, and make sure you’ve ordered at least 5 or 6 of these gifts 👇before getting away.

From the same people who brought you those adorable 'Does this ring make me look engaged?!' mugs.... how sweet!

Gray. Rose gold. Scripted personalization. All of your bach weekend goodies will be kept so safe.
If you all don't go out for the day with some iteration (mascara, coffee, avocado toast, brows, etc.) of this... you're doing it all wrong.
Gift: Bride Squad Bathing Suit
But they're just so cute... you can forgive all the wedgies... Just remember to get that wax before you go, because these are as high-cut as they are cheeky.
The bride needs something extra... on her ass.
And on her head.... if margs aren't a part of it, then did it even happen?
Her new last name BEST be on display. On display. Each and every day....
