If you wish to give the bride a gift that’s as fun as it is practical, surprise her with a bridal shower household poem!
This gift poem is written around a selection of brand name household products, such as laundry detergent, paper towels, and body wash. While the poem is read, the bride opens one gift at a time, revealing the words (the brand names) that fill in the blanks.
The poem itself often contains a wedding wish or a bit of advice for the bride-to-be. I say often because there is no one grand version. And with so many products to choose from, you could create countless household item poems with some imagination!
If you’d like to create your own bridal shower gift poem, skip down to the bottom half of the page. There you’ll find a long list of household items that would blend seamlessly into a memorable verse!
Bridal Shower Household Cleaning Poem
To The Bride,
As you PLEDGE love to your man and prepare to be his bride,
There’s a SECRET you must know, which may just turn the TIDE.
A CHARMIN’ personality and BRAWNY he might be,
He’s FANTASTIK, brings you JOY, and even SUAVE to a DEGREE.
But MR. CLEAN he is not and with HEFTY messes he will test.
Just remember and be GLAD he’s HEAD and SHOULDERS above the rest!
Embrace the DAWN of a new day and BOUNCE into your new life.
SHOUT out to the world, you can’t wait to be his wife!
As you DIAL up your happiness, CARESS and SNUGGLE your man
Don’t let him VANISH, as he can help make the house SPIC and SPAN!
As you prepare for marriage,
I thought I’d let you in on a little SECRET.
Although, in physique, (Groom) might be BRAWNY
and have a really CHARMIN personality,
you may soon find out that he is no MR. CLEAN.
But don’t let that make you SHOUT.
Remember that he will always be there to SNUGGLE –
a best friend to fill your life with extra ZEST.
So please, continue to give (Groom) your ALL,
and your home never will be short on JOY!
Bridal Shower Household Poem 2
Marriage is an exciting ride,
but that’s not to say it’s always a CINCH.
When (Groom) offers to make dinner,
you may discover PUFFS of smoke billowing from the oven,
or he might wake you at DAWN just to CARESS.
But before you go and DIAL your mother,
remember that (Groom) thinks of you as his VENUS
and chose to PLEDGE all of his love to you.
Be GLAD for your blessings,
and you two will have a blissful LIFE!
How to Wrap the Gift?
Once you’ve chosen a poem and obtained the necessary household items, what exactly happens next? How do you properly deliver the gift?
1. Type up the poem, substituting a number or a blank space for each product name.
2. Wrap each gift individually, and number them to correspond with the order they appear in the bridal shower household poem.
3. Place the poem in an envelope. On the front, write, “For the hostess to read aloud.” Before the bridal shower starts, you may want to give the hostesses a heads up about reading the poem while the bride opens the gifts. If they’ve never seen it done, it may be worth the extra precaution to ensure all goes smoothly!
