    What are y'all giving to your bridal shower hostesses as their hostess gifts? I was thinking about doing massages for them, but wasn't sure if I should do something tangible. Hmmmm......thoughts anyone??

      Gosh, I don't know. I have never been given anything when I hosted a shower. I am interested in knowing what people are giving too.

        My co-workers threw me a surprise shower so since I didn't know I didn't get them anything. However, my aunt and cosuin are throwing my big bridal shower. I think I am going to get each of them a gift card to Nordstrom Spa for pedicures. I know they both like going there, and that way they can get their feet done before the wedding. Otherwise, I thought of Bath and Body Works gift sets, but I wasn't sure which scent to get.

          I've thrown a few showers, and all the hostess gifts were wonderful. At one I got a Votivo candle, which smelled so delicious. I think they are about $25 a pop. It's a little much for a candle, but it's the best candle I've ever had! At another shower, I was given one of those super super soft robes (like the ones at Brookstone made out of that amazing material) with my monogram. At my sisters, I received a Tiffay's crystal heart box. It's so beautiful, and I use it as my E-ring holder. Along those same lines, I got a Waterford crystal heart for graduation. Just a few suggestions. Hope this helps!

            Last week my friend got her FMIL these really pretty dessert plates. I was planning to do something like spa gift certificates for my mom, and two friends that are each hosting a shower for me. It does not have to be a big gift, but it is nice to acknowledge all the love and hard work that someone puts in to hosting a shower for you :)

              My roommate just got back from a shower where each kind of the deserts were on a cute plate. At the end of the shower, each guest got to take one home. The one she got was a really cute painted plate, with a big cupcake on it. It sounds cheesy, but really is precious, and it's a cute idea.

                  I've never heard of people giving hostess gifts for showers until this site. I guess it's not a common thing to do where i'm from. Hmmm, not sure what i will get mine, i don't have much money left so maybe just a thank you card and a really nice candle.

                    Maybe it's a southern thing. I always just thought it was standard. I'm sure they will be appreciative to receive anything. I always think that the handwritten note card is always the most important and personal. There's nothing more powerful than the written word.

                      Bump.

                      I didn't want to start a new thread, but I was wondering if anyone had some more ideas for hostess gifts.

                      My MOH is throwing me a shower next month and I know she's done a tremondous amount of work and planning, and has spent some $$.

                      I would really like to get her something for all her hard work.

                      What I have come up with so far is I bought a beach bag, and I was going to get her a nice beach towel, a bottle of wine and a gift card for Chapters. I was wondering if anyone else had some other suggestions.

                      Also, a few of my other friends have helped her out. They aren't bridesmaids, but they are helping her organize the shower. I'd like to get each of them something small as a thankyou. So you have any suggestions for that?
