    I have two bridal showers, and one is coming up next weekend on Jan 15! The other is mid February

     

    I know it is proper etiquette to give the hostess(es) a small token of appreciation, but I have NO clue what to get.  I am not really feeling the whole Bath and Body Works thing...

     

    Ideas?

     

    Thanks!

      I sent mine a bouquet of their fav flowers at work with a nice card...I  thought it was heart felt. For the next one I think I might give them Willow Tree Angels if you have ever seem them..some are friendship etc.


      Today I marry my bestfriend, the one I laugh with, the one I love.

        Those are a cute idea! I just Googled them and checked them out.  

         

        The flowers are a good idea too! Would it be bad if I just brought the flowers to the shower with me?

            My maid of honours Mom threw my bridal shower and she is a woman who already owns everything so I put together a basket of consumable items. We did a couple bottles of wine, chocolates and went to a local farmers market and got some home made items from that. She really liked it as it was something she could enjoy with her family and a few things she had never tried.

              I did the Spafinder gift card for the shower I had a few weeks ago.  It is a cool concept, basically you purchase the amount you want on it and they go online and find a spa near them that will accept it! I figure everyone loves to be pampered :-)

               

              Thanks for the ideas ladies!

                I saw on this site where someone had goven their hostesses a shower gel kit & said "Hope your next shower is as great as mine!"

                  My bridesmaids are throwing my shower and I thought that their gifts that they are getting from me before the wedding would suffice, is this wrong?

                      I didn't get my sister anything for throwing the bridal shower but now I wish I had.  I did give her and my BMs a nice gift for being in our wedding party (jewelry) but I'm sure that she would have appreciated the gesture.  A bottle of wine or champagne is always a good gift :)
