A hostess gift is always appreciated and definitely the right thing to do, etiquitte-wise.  It is never “expected” by the host, and should be something small ($20?) just to express your appreciation. 

We got his parents a new set of dishes – they didn’t have a set that matched at all.  We got my mom a massage and pedicure and my dad a gift card to his favorite mexican joint (it’s not mom’s fave, so then she “had” to go).

@kg1185: I got the hostesses a plant and stationary with their names on it.

We didnt give our parents thank you presents. Just told them thank you a million times and wrote them very nice thank you notes.  We did buy our parents albums of our wedding, and paid for any prints they wanted…so that may count I guess.

For my Grandma who hosted my shower I got some bath/body stuff at ULTA and put it in a pretty bag.  She loves lavender and I just got some hand lotion and bath salts or something.  A BBB candle and hand soap would be a nice gift and they’ll wrap it.  🙂

Thank you guys for posting this. Crisis averted lol.

 

While I know technically family is not supposed to host a shower, my step-sister (MOH) and step-mother are hosting mine. I’ll be giving them gift certificates to get manicures and pedicures at a local salon.

@kg1185:  I got the hostesses of my shower (my BM’s) a candle and tied a ribbon around it with a little tag that said “Thank you for a SCENT-sational shower”.  Cost me about $7 per candle.  They seemed to appreciate it.  If not, oh well…at least I did something, lol.

A card is fine! We gave our hostess gifts at a random time between the shower and wedding. Nobody got anything at the rehearsal. We’re getting our parents a photo album. Cliche, but I think they’ll like it.

@kg1185:  Definately give a thank you gift and card and then another thank you note after the shower. 

I gave/am giving my hostesses personalized notepads and a personalized platter.
