I gave them cheeseboards that you could write on with chalk. Like what kind of cheese is displayed and it came with two cheese knives. I spent $20 each on them. They were adorable and the hostesses seemed to like them.

We gave her a massage from a local spa! The cheese board is a really cute idea and will obviously be great for her next time hosting a party!

I had FIVE, countem’ FIVE hostesses to get something for, so I tried my best to find something nice in that price range. I love the spa idea, which I’m doing for my BM’s… in fact, I could use a spa day myself right now. Are spas open at 10pm? Tee hee!

My FMIL hosted my shower, and I offered to personally pay for my makeup artist to do her makeup on the wedding day. I asked first to make sure she’d like that, since not everyone wants someone else doing their makeup.

I’m not quite at the shower stage yet but i am hosting a wedding launch party for the six women who have offered real assistance in our wedding plans (FMIL,my mom, sisters and best friends) I am making them a sample of the desserts i am planning for the wedding and i have decided to select a novel that i think they would enjoy during the summer months. I’ll wrap it in beautiful paper and write them a little note about why i think they would enjoy the book i selected for them and of course tell them how truly lucky i am to have them in my life. THEN i will delegate like mad and sign them up for some major wedding work! I am a big believer in saying thank-you first! 

 

Some titles in case you like the book idea

Eat Pray Love

Commited

Geek Love

lullabies for little criminals

The French Laundry Cookbook

My shower isn’t until August, but I went to the Bath and Body Works semi-annual sale a few weeks ago to stock up on stuff I can use for hostess gifts.

I will be sending them each a bouquet the week following the shower.
