@mrsjordan53014:  is she the sole person hosting?  If so, I would.  If not, and she’s got others helping…then I would just factor that into any sort if bridesmaids gifts, depending on your situation!

@mrsjordan53014:  A hostess gift is nice (though not exactly “required”), but a thank you note would still be required. 

I would get her a small gift, something you know she will appreciate.

@mrsjordan53014:  I had my shower last weekend and actually bought all my girls (just 4 of them) a cute wine tote and their favorite bottle of wine. I also gave my MOH a $50 gift card to her favorite store. I also gave them all a thank you card that I really put some time and thought into writing. I don’t think a hostess gift is required, but if you feel that someone has gone above and beyond then it is nice. I will say, I was a bridesmaid and barely got a thank you card for the gift from the bride let alone hosting the shower. 

I think more than anything, you should write a very special thank you card for your sister when you send out thank you cards. I will say that my MOH really appreciated the gift and went above and beyond and gave me a beautiful shower pretty much on her own. Looking back it probably would have been best to just give her a gift, but I think it’s nice to know all their hard work didn’t go unnoticed!

I was informed by my sister/MOH that it was customary.  I had never heard of it either, but I ordered necklaces for my hostesses.  The necklace is gold with a bright pink stone, because my shower theme is hearts and the colors are pink and red.
