    Oh crap, yet another thing to add to the always-growing list of things-to-purchase. I never heard of hostess gifts for a shower. We will jsut have to see how much money i have closer to the date, but that this point, I don't think it's going to happen...

      I was thinking the same thing! I have never heard of this before... and there is just no room in the budget for this! I'm sure my future mil (who is hosting ours) will think a thank you card is more than enough...

        I've never heard of this either! It would be nice but I dont think they would be expected. I'll have to think about that one!

          My MOH's mother is having a shower for me at her home so I thought it would be nice to get her a Jo Malone Candle as a thank you.

          They are pricey as far as candles go, but she's so great and since she's not in my wedding party it's not like she's getting another bridesmaid gift from me so I thought I could splurge!

            Ok - so if everyone throwing my showers are bridesmaids or ushers and I would be getting them presents anyhow that I was going to give them later, then it is ok not to give them as "hostess gifts" and not to give them exactly at the shower?

              I am having 3 showers.  One is being hosted by my MOH and one of my other BM's.  The other 2 are being hosted by friends of my FMIL.  For the shower being hosted by my BMs, I had already planned on giving them their BM gifts (beach bags with sunscreen, candle, necklace, personalized wine glass, flip flops, and shawl) as well as their dresses (all of which I purchased).  I think for the two that are doing most of the hosting of the shower, I will get them something extra and put it their bag...I like the idea of the shower gel with note saying From my shower to yours or Hope your shower is as good as mine.  My MOH's MIL is helping as well so I will probably get her a potted plant or flowers.  Then for the other two showers, someone on here directed me to Willow Tree Angels.  I think I will get each one of those and maybe a plant/flowers.  My FMIL did say though that she would help with those gifts.
