What to buy the bride, outside of her registry? A few of my girlfriends have got married, engaged or had a little one this year. I'm of the opinion that each of them deserves an extra special gift, just for them.

I've rounded up 10 Truly Gorgeous Gifts For The Bride, which will add something extra special to their milestone.

Whilst each of these gifts has been selected with a bride in mind, they would make wonderful presents for friends any time of the year, in any special stage of their lives.

When it comes to buying gifts for the bride, I'm either on the lookout for pieces which will work for her honeymoon or be a great keepsake from the wedding.

Aerin's recent Tangier Vanille release is the most heavenly scent. I'm not normally a fan of vanilla notes, but there is something dark and woody about the Tangier Vanille version which is totally addictive. I have a few Aerin body washes and I use these in lieu of perfume if I want a lighter scent. The combination of the body wash and perfume will ensure that the bride will forever associate that gorgeous aroma with her special day.

As for honeymoon gifts, Aspinal Of London's passport covers are some of the most elegant I've seen. I adore the blue and blush colour ways. A sumptuous scarf is a must for travelling, and Lily & Lionel is my go-to brand for just that. This Bianca leopard print version is timeless. Elizabeth Scarlett's wash bags are my absolute favourites and make the most perfect gifts. This pretty embroidered pineapple print is just the right hint of tropicana for a honeymoon as are these stunning turquoise and coral earrings from Bauble Bar.
