I didn’t even think about giving a gift but probably should. Bump for some ideas.

My shower is coming up this weekend.  Last weekend I went to a small local candy shop and bought each of my 5 bridesmaids a small box of fancy chocolates.  I also got one for my mom because although I know they’re not *supposed* to throw you a shower, she definitely had a hand in the planning.  In all I think they cost me about $25 total.  It’s just a small token gift, but I wanted to do a little something.

I’m not sure if it’s necessary, but something small like that is easy if you’re looking for ideas.

I never thought about hostess gifts until I threw my best friend a shower year before last and she gave me a bottle of wine and a thank you card. It was such a nice gesture I intend to do that for my hostess’s. I have bottles of wine that I purchased last summer from the area we are getting married and am going to give those out. I think any little thing that says thank you is good  and goes a long way towards making someone feel appreciated!

I hadn’t thought of that!  my MoH and a group of my FI’s relatives are each throwing me a bridal shower, and I would definitely like to thank them in some way!  I like the box of fancy chocolates and a thank-you card idea, I think I will definitely try to do this.

My Maid/Matron of Honor did the shower all by herself (even though another bridesmaid was supposed to help her) so I got her the following after reading a post on here:

Her favorite candy with a tag that read “Thanks for making my day sweet”

A Yankee Candle with a tag that read “Thanks for making my day bright”

A shower gel with a tag that read “Thanks for showering me with love”

And then I gave her a $50 gc to the hair salon she goes to.

@aheavel:  I know this is a year old but what a great idea.  I wanted to do a gift card but it was so impersonal.  I’m stealing your idea 🙂
