I think a note would be fine, but a gift would be very nice.

I would do a note and a bottle of champagne or a potted plant/flower or something little as a token of thanks.

I think a small hostess gift is appropriate.

A agree with Girlwitharing.. a nice hostess gift, something personalized would be extra special too!

i think it depends who’s throwing the shower. my bridal party and parents are throwing my shower, and we’re getting them a very generous gift for the wedding already. but if it was someone else, i think a small gift would be nice.

I don’t know that there’s any right or wrong answer here.  I wouldn’t do too much though, they are doing this as a gift to you and you wouldn’t want to defeat the purpose.  I think if it were me, I’d get a card and a little gift, like a candle or something like that.  It can’t hurt right?

A card would be nice. But I think a gift is nicer but not expected. We had a tiki shower for me, and I got all my bridesmaids and MOH personalized beer Koozies, even my parents. They loved them. It said their name on the front and what they were in my wedding.  Good luck!

I bought pretty vases for all the people who hosted my showers from Crate & Barrell.  They were on sale for $7 each!  They also bought me gifts for the shower, so I sent them thank you notes for the gifts and mentioned how much all of their time and effort meant to me.

I agree with other posters that a hostess gift is appropriate.  And of course send them a thank you not after too.

I think you should get a nice hostess gift (even if it’s something ‘easy’ like a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine).  Something small you know the party throwing the shower would enjoy!  The gesture will go a long way!

Thank you card for sure but a hostess gift would also be nice.
