Sorry, I don’t have anything to offer but am tagging in because I’m curious about this also. 

Toronto2014:  I also find it super cool that we are both in TO, have 3 bridesmaids hosting our shower that is coming up soon and our moms are helping out…are we the same person?

Toronto2014:  I think a small token gift is fine, along with thank you note or card. I gave my shower hosts things like candles and such – you could do a bottle of wine, gift cards, flowers – whatever you like.

It’s just nice to show your appreciation, but you don’t have to spend a lot, especially since you’ll probably get them gifts for being in the wedding later.

LadyBear:  This is a great idea. A nice card and a bottle of wine would go along way with all my bridesmaids and you’re right about already giving them a gift for being in the wedding.

We gave our hostess a bottle of wine and a nice card to say thank you. Any small token of appreciation is great, find something that you know they will love/use 🙂

I got my bridesmaids who planned stuff a Stila Lip Glaze and OPI nail polish – the shower was themed “cupcakes and champage” so the Lip Glaze was “cupcake” and the nail polish was “Mimosas for the new Mr. and Mrs” so it went with the theme. It was probably $20/each.

I didn’t get anything for my mom, even though she did help, just because it’s my mom. I know she knows I appreciate her :), plus I couldn’t afford all that between her birthday being last week, mother’s day coming up, and the wedding in June. I’m sure she doesn’t mind.

My aunt had the shower at her house, and I got her a pretty candle from Anthropologie that matches her house and a thank you card where I wrote how much I appreciated her time and effort blah blah blah. I think the candle was maybe $25?

Everything was very much appreciated.

I’d give nice flowers, a pretty scented candle, a bottle of wine, whatever you think is appropriate, as a thank you.

I gave a potted calla lily and a bottle each of organic hand cream and foot cream to my aunt and my cousin, who hosted the shower that my extended family in upstate NY attended. Of course, I wrote a nice thank you card for each of them as well!

Toronto2014:  Sorry for the late response. We are getting married August 2nd in the Distillery District. 

And further to the original topic, I’ve decided to wrap a nice tea towel around a nice bottle of wine and tie it with some pretty ribbon for my bridesmaid’s hostess gift.
