It’s hard enough deciding which bridal shower games you want to play, now you’ve got to come up with prizes to go along with them. We know what you’re thinking, what the hell do I get when I don’t even know who I’m getting it for? Don’t worry, we have your back. Below we’ve compiled a list of bridal shower game prizes all guests can enjoy, from your BFF’s grandmother to her 20-something cousin. P.S. They won’t break the bank either.


amazon gift cardGift Cards

Who doesn’t love a good gift card? It’s free money in a pretty package! That’s why it makes for the perfect prize- anyone can use them. Not to mention it’s simple for you to buy and package. As far as the amount goes, that’s totally up to you. We recommend keeping bridal shower game prizes under $20 a piece so not to empty your pockets, but feel free to set the amount at whatever you’re comfortable with. As far as the where, keep it relatively generic. Think of popular places like Target, Amazon and Starbucks. If your game crowns only one winner, use the full amount all on one location. If there’s a chance for multiple winners, spread the amount onto a few different gift cards so no one is left prizeless.

bottles of wine with personalized stickers

Bottle of Wine

We can tell you right now that no guest will turn down a free bottle of booze. They may even open it up on the spot! If you decide to use wine as your prize, buy a variety of reds and whites and allow guests to choose their preference. Add a sweet touch by decorating each bottle with one of these personalized wine labels. Remember, keep it cheap- there are plenty of delicious wines for as low as $8 a bottle. Pro tip: If you plan to have a dozen or more prizes, purchase your wine by the case to receive a hefty discount!


Cliche? We think not. Candles are universally used and serve multiple purposes. And to keep on theme, they’re cheap and easy to find. Simply purchase your favorite scented candles from a local Target or Bed Bath & Beyond and you’re done! If you’re looking to go a little above and beyond a traditional candle, we suggest this soy jar candle (multiple scent options) that can be bought solo or in sets of 2 (perfect for multi-winner games).

coffee before talkie mug

Coffee Mugs

There a very few people who don’t run on a cup or ten of coffee a day, so what better prize than a new mug to sip from. Skip the generic department store patterns and opt for a mug that features a cute or funny quote like coffee before talkie or coffee is my love language. Take it up a notch by adding these personalized coffee or K-cup favors with each mug.

burt's bees gift setBurt’s Bees Gift Set

We love this as a prize because it is affordable and functional at the same time. Besides, what women wouldn’t appreciate a variety of Burt’s Bees products? As far as which set to get, there a few different options: the everyday essentials travel set, tips and toes kit and classics gift set. No matter which you choose, we guarantee your guests will love their mini take-home spa.

Hi, I’m Megan-the voice behind Modern MOH! I was blessed enough to be the maid of honor for both of my besties, who just so happened to get married six months apart. It was my first time as a bridesmaid (let alone a MOH!) and I had no idea what I was doing, so I turned to BFF #3- the internet. It didn’t take me long to realize how little content had been written about being a maid of honor. This struck me as odd, not to mention unfair, considering there are a gazillion and one sites specifically for brides (WeddingWire, The Knot, Brides... just to name a few). So, long story short, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create Modern MOH. I’ve designed this blog to be a one-stop shop for all your maid of honor needs, including some real s#*! no one else will tell you. My goal is to help anyone struggling in their quest to find the answers to their questions, as well as the confidence it takes to be the GMOHOAT (greatest maid of honor of all time).
