Ah, bridal shower season… or as I like to call it, that special time of year that leaves me drowning in a sea of registries. You see, I was under the impression that sticking to the script was best when choosing a gift. “If she registered for a set of stainless steel biscuit cutters, she must really want them,” I say to myself. Thing is, I’ve finally been to enough of these fancy little fetes to realize that deviating from the hallowed registry is a great way to honor someone’s true interests.


That being said, there’s no better gift than Pinrose for the beauty-obsessed on your list. Founded by friends Erika Shumate and Christine Luby, the online shop offers high-quality scents at budget-friendly prices, which means celebrating multiple friends won’t break the bank.

For just $50, the bride-to-be will receive a gift card and set of petals (scented towelettes featuring each of the site’s 10 signature fragrances) in a cute, reusable canvas clutch. After trying them all, she can redeem the card at pinrose.com for a full-size version of her favorite. With names like Sugar Bandit, Renegade Starlet, and Campfire Rebel, this is more than just perfume – it’s her essence in a bottle. As an added bonus, orders ship for just $1 and returns are free. If you ask me, ladies, this gift smells like a winner.
