    I tried to come up with something really thoughtful for the ladies that hosted my shower (MIL’s friends) but couldnt think of anything so I ended up buying each of them a box of See’s candies.  I thought it was customary to give a gift to the shower hostesses but they were completely surprised and didnt expect anything!

    My MOH hosted the shower, and I got her a Wood Wick candle, because they’re her favorite. She was really happy with it. I suggest getting the hostess something you know she likes!

    i voted yes it’s customary, although i am not sure if it’s a regional thing or not. i have seen many friends thank their hostess in this way. my cousin, who is my moh, is doing the majority of planning for mine so i am getting her the wedding themed set from philosophy since shes a big fan. i have to pull something smaller together for the others who contribute…

    Shower gifts are not common where I’m originally from. Although they may be in other social circles that I’ve never been in. I love Miss Lemon’s idea.

    My family doesn’t do them, but it could be a cultural thing.  I am sure my friends might. Anyway, it doesn’t hurt to give a small gift, right? If you have small budget, do something small.  I think it’s more to say thanks than to charm them with your skills.

    Yup, gifts for the hostesses for sure!  We’re also gifting to my dad and my sister’s husband, who helped out majorly!

    I am lucky enough to have 5 ladies hosting my shower (3 bridesmaids & 2 friends), and I am getting all of them a little something.  Nothing too extravagent, but I want to thank them for throwing me a wonderful party!  I have gotten separate gifts for the bridesmaids that I will give to them at the rehearsal dinner.
