I love unique ideas. If you have a friend who is getting
married and don't want to do the normal run-of-the-mill
bridal shower, here is a superb idea. Throw your friend
a "basket shower".
Each guest will bring a basket of
goodies that has a theme to go along with it. It will help
the new bride get well-stocked on supplies as well as fun
Here are a few themes to get you thinking. Be creative
and have a blast discovering all the themes ladies come

organizer, folders, clock, phone...
