When you have a large circle of friends and the bridal shower invitations start coming, you want to attend each and every shower because you love your friends, but when you're on a budget you have to be careful with your bank account and spend every dollar wisely.

Obviously, you can't choose to attend one shower and not another without hurting feelings so a good solution is to get creative with your bridal shower gifts and that way you can give a great gift without reaching into your emergency savings.

Gift of Favors
Offer a cute stuffed animal with a special book of coupons you made with favors. From a free night of babysitting (if she already has kiddos) to taking care of the newlyweds home when they go on their honeymoon to free housecleaning for a month! It's a useful and fun gift.

Gift to Keep
A keepsake is a great gift. She'll be celebrating anniversaries after this and mementos that capture and remind her of the magic of her special day and the fact your friendship was part of that will be a wonderful reminder for years to come. An engraved item or something specially made in silver will be a beautiful reminder of the bond you share.

Gifts to Use
If you're crafty, you can make a special wedding quilt or other heirloom memento for your bride-to-be. Another great idea is to give her something she can use now, like a relaxation aromatherapy kit. Beautiful scents and a relaxing bath can do away with the "before the wedding jitters".

See? Just get a little creative and you can give a great gift at every shower you attend without spending a fortune.
