My shower is in a week and I am at a loss for hostess gifts. My FMIL and FI’s aunt are hosting the shower. I love "shower themed" gifts but think bath products might be inappropriate gifts for them. I can’t find any cute umbrellas which was my other idea. Thoughts??

I got my hostesses chocolate frog truffles from Swiss Colony. My FI’s mom and sister love truffles apparently. And they’re so flipping cute!

Shower-themed gifts sound nice. I’ve not really thought of that before.
My first thought is how well do you know them? I’d shoot for giving them something they’d use and enjoy seeing a lot. A teapot for them to have a quiet respite or a frame for a picture of you with them.
If you aren’t close to either, a framed picture of you with them can help that. It shows you care about them, are thankful to them for throwing you the shower and that you want to mark the significance of your relationship. I mean would you really take a photo with someone you don’t like?
If either have a collection of something, buy an addition for it. 🙂

It’s not shower themed, but I gave all my hostesses scented candles from Anthropologie. They’re gorgeous and smell divine (there are about a million varieties). Everyone loved them.

I gave my hostesses/bridesmaids these awesome Kate Spade tote bags in all different colors. Great for the beach or on a plane. Got them on eBay for WAY under retail, although it took a lot of stalking…

I think you can never go wrong with flowers or a nice potted plant!

What about super cute aprons? Etsy has lots of gorgeous, unusual ones that I wouldn’t be upset to wear while entertaining!
