So, my two wonderful Maid/Matron of Honor and my mom are throwing me a bridal shower back at home. I’d love to get them some useful gifts to thank them. I’ve seen the ideas of using the whole “shower” theme and giving monogrammed bathrobes, bath and body goodies, etc. I’m also thinking about getting them gift certificates for mani/pedis with me once they get down here for the wedding. Does anyone have any other good ideas that they’ve either heard of or gifts that you’ve received as a hostess?

I’ve never been to a party hosted for me, so I hadn’t thought about this! I better get thinking! Good luck! I like the idea of a mani/pedi!

Two of my bridesmaids love the spa and one is a massage freak, so I am doing spa gift certificates for the two and a massage gift cert for the Maid/Matron of Honor. I’m in cahoots with their husbands/family members to find out their favorite places (they live out-of-state and I’m not sure what they like).

I’m giving all my aunts monogrammed beach towels as hostess gifts because most of them have pools or go to the neighborhood or country club pool every day in the summer. Also, as a kid, some of most fond memories were pool parties with them.
I really like your idea. You could even get them monogrammed slippers or cute flip flops to show off their pedicures.
Some other hostess gifts I like: personalized stationary, personalized party tubs, monogrammed aprons, fun costume jewelry, pashminas, potted plants or flowers, fun cocktail napkins or coasters, CDs with you and your fiance’s favorite songs, etc.
