I’ve seen a few different gifts:

– Bath salts, scrubs, shower gel, etc. (with cute little cards/tags saying something about the "shower")

– Picture frames with pics of the hostess(es) and the bride

– Baked treats/goodies 

 

HTH!

I am buying from a local artist necklaces that are in my wedding colors – brown and green from this designer – http://www.hannahmade.com/

 I have 20 hostess gifts to buy (engagement and shower), so I was able to work out a deal for a larger order. Plus, I am really trying to support the local designers in this economy.

I bought frog truffles from Swiss Colony. They were on sale for $9 and my FSIL and FMIL were like "wow…you did NOT have to do this at all!" they were totally shocked and my FI said they were both truffle-aholics. FSIL is pregnant so I had to be careful what i bought her.

I plan on getting cute umbrellas for my hostesses.   We live in Florida and it rains constantly during the summer so I know that they could find a use for the extra umbrella!

Besides, I thought shower = umbrella was a clever idea.

OMG!  The frogs are sooo cute!  How did they taste?  I might steal that idea…My MOH is frog crazy!  Should probably get the quicker shipping because of the heat huh?

I saw someone had posted about those frog truffles a while ago, and I thought they were so cute that I ordered them for my FI. I got them last week and they were all melted. It wasn’t even hot here that day. I checked the mailing restrictions before ordering them to see if they could be mailed to me and according to their site, there were no heat restrictions for my area. I was very disappointed.

I bought each of my aunts a purse sized umbrella in different colors and patterns and attached a card to it that said, "For your next shower." I had seen it somewhere and thought it was a great idea. My aunts thought it was cute, too.

What type of shipping did you both use on the truffles?  I am torn!  I love them, but would be so upset if they were melted!

Brena80 – I am sooo stealing your idea!  Umbrellas ARE the perfect shower hostess gift.

I just sent you a message, heathaah! FSIL LOVED them. I got text messages about how yummy and cute they were

It was hella hot in STL and they didn’t melt. But they’re chocolate so I guess it just depends on if they get delivered in the morning and then sit outside ALL day. Maybe get them delivered to their work? Then they’re just brought inside asap!

I just used the cheap shipping. I had a coupon.

I also just used the cheapest shipping. I live in Cincinnati and it wasn’t hot at all the day they were delivered. I’m not sure what happened. Maybe they were delivered in the morning and just sat in the mailbox all day. Or maybe they got melted somewhere along the way. I did get my account credited though.

I wish I had thought of umbrellas! Ah I’m so not bright! I got them all these really great bath soaks that look like cupcakes.
