Skip the traditional wedding shower gifts of kitchen ware or linens and make the bride giggle by gifting her with a funny wedding shower present. Because this is a bridal shower and not a hen party, leading wedding website The Knot suggests keeping racy gifts to a minimum--the point is to make the bride and her guests laugh and not blush with embarrassment.

Honey Do whistle
Purchase the bride a Honey Do Whistle. The package on this white whistle claims it’s a “guaranteed obedience training tool for your new husband.” This whistle, which costs £2.90 from The Rosemary Company in 2009, can be tucked into a gift basket or tied to the top of a more-traditional bridal shower present.
"The Cookie Sutra"
Toeing the line of funny and raunchy is the book “The Cookie Sutra.” This guide takes inspiration from the classic “Kama Sutra” and completes the joke with a “Joy of Cooking” twist. It features a gingerbread cookie couple in compromising positions that might give the newlywed couple some inspiration for the bedroom. “The Cookie Sutra,” by Edward Jaye, cost just over £2 in 2009 and might be appropriate for a baking-enthusiast bride with a sense of humour.
Wine Be Gone
Wine accessories are a common bridal shower gift, but the “wine be gone” wine bottle holder from Uncommon Goods is unlike any of the others. Utah artist Fred Conlon hand crafts the wine bottle-holder, shaped in the form of a “gluttonous little creature” that seems to be chugging the wine from the bottle. This little metal monster is made from reclaimed materials, sure to please an eco-conscious bride, and cost £45 in 2009.
Marriage Survival Kit
For a creative bridal shower gag gift, put together a marriage survival kit for the soon-to-be bride. This is especially amusing coming from a already-married woman who can give input into why certain items are necessary. Items in the kit could include aspirin, a copy of the book "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus," lingerie, chocolate, earplugs and a bag of sugar (to sweeten up the sour moments).
