What about a nice umbrella for each? “Thanks for showering me”

Can you give a budget range? Like, $20 or something?

Edible things that you make are also usually well-received–homemade jams, banana bread, infused oils or flavored sugars…You can pump up the gift by giving it to them in a nice container of some kind that they can keep, along with a copy of the recipe.

Check out Martha Stewart because she has some great ideas and is a master of the power of packaging 🙂

What about some gourmet cheese and crackers with a bottle of wine from the vineyard, to keep with the winery theme?

I didn’t know it was a thing to get thank you gifts for shower hosts.

I got cute gift bags from the dollar section at Target and wrote a note that said “Thank you for planning such a beautiful shower for me. I hope your next ‘shower’ is as great as mine!”. Inside I put a few things from Bath & Body Works-lotion, body wash, and a candle.

They have great buy one get one free sales so each bag cost about $8 total.

Edit: I stole this idea from another bee, but I’m not sure which one! The girls loved it 🙂

Well, my shower hosts are my BM’s and they are getting “thanks for being in the wedding” gifts.  So do they need another one?  #confused

@MissNachoLover:  I never got a hostess gift when I was a BM. But my girls all flew in for the shower, and they are flying in aagin for the bachelorette and of course the wedding. So with all the money they are spending I wanted to do a little somethin extra for them. I don’t think it’s necessary though.

Although it wouldn’t be wrong to give gifts to those you love and who had done something nice for you, I am unfamiliar with the apparently now common practice of responding to a gift (in this case, the gift of a shower) with a gift rather than a heartfelt thank-you note.

If I’m invited to dinner at someone’s home, I generally would take the hostess a small, hostess gift.  However, I would not ever expect that the guests of honor at showers or birthday parties would need to give gifts to those who are hosting such events on their behalf any more than they would need to provide gifts in return to all those giving them gifts at such an event.

@Mrs.GK:  Ah. Well, depending on if they are more foodie or crafty, I like to give fancy olive oil and fancy vinegar (or salt–there’s so much gourmet salt out there!) and call it a day. You can get nice stuff for $10-12 each.
