What did you or are thinking of gifting for those who are hosting your shower?
My Mother-In-Law is doing an insane amount for my baby shower! Not only is she paying for it all, she’s including me in all decisions, putting so much thought and effort into the favors. She’s hand making stained glass sun catchers in the shape of a crescent moon (nursery theme will be moon and stars) with a little baby tag and a tag that says “it’s a girl!”. 25 of them! By hand!
I want to get her a really nice gift to thank her!
I was thinking a nice “I Love Grandma” frame with a sonogram pic for now and maybe a $100 spa gift certificate? What else should/can I add?
My good friend has also been assisting her so I want to get a gift too, any ideas for her?

Wow, that’s a great gift for your MIL! Some other ideas for your friend: wine, flowers, or a gift card to her favorite restaurant.

@regberadaisy: That is really awesome that she is doing so much work. Sounds like a great idea to me!

That is so sweet! I like your idea. Our families did and are doing alot. My shower was a few weeks ago, but I can’t think of anything to give them. Plus, they won’t accept anything.

So I got Mother-In-Law a Pearhead I Love Grandma frame and will also be doing the spa gift card.
For my friend I ordered these gray & white chevron throw pillow covers from Etsy she had showed me a few months ago. I double checked with her husband that she did not get them yet.
What else for friend? She doesn’t drink wine. We’re coupon people when we eat out so I *could* do restaurant.com gift certificate.
Her husband had given me a mini muffin pan idea of her bday that we did not get her. But she’s not really a cupcake person so I don’t really know if it’s something he *thinks* she wants or she really does.

I typically go for individualized gifts, but since I have 4 hostesses and pregnancy-induced laziness, I opted to just get them all the same thing. Which is a Vera Bradley shower tote + nice shower gel/lotion/soaps and a nice loofah & pumice stone. I’m doing the whole “Hope your next shower is as lovely as mine” theme.
