Perfume or nice embossed stationery?

I have literally never heard of things like this. Wearing crowns? Seriously?

Is this something that strictly posh Americans do, or is it a regional thing in only parts of America?

Fancy Smancy Chocolates, maybe something made just for her, like special truffles flavored, made, and named just for her.

Champagne flutes accompanied by a really nice bottle of champagne.  I also really like  your classic perfume idea.  

When in doubt go for small but luxurious items like cashmere socks, (might be hard to find in july), nice body products, etc.

@Double_rainbow:  Neither… it is a UNIVERSALLY acceptable GIRLIE THING to do… no matter where you live… as is Afternoon Tea, Brunching, Lunching, or Shopping with your Girlfriend.  This event tho is similar to a Shower and can be held as a Birthday Party, or just when getting together with friends…

I mean really… you can not see that based on the fact that the Hostess is an Older Lady?

Honestly, your comments… Is this something that strictly posh Americans do, or is it a regional thing in only parts of America? are RUDE and Insulting to a lot of women (by last count there are aprox 160 Million women in the USA)

It sounds like the gift isn’t specific for a recipient. I bet she’s going to have a game with them or (donate them??).  Otherwise, why would the hostess tell you to to bring her a gift?

What in the world is a princess party and who is the gift for?

I love the idea of a nice bottle of Chanel no 5! Also, now I want to have a princess party…It sounds so pink and pretty and fun!

Agree with the others, the gift has to be something luxurious… like the kind of thing you’d LOVE to receive from a Best Girl Friend (what essentially this party is about) or you’d buy for yourself if you could spare the cash…

So ya things that come to mind…

High End Chocolates – Cologne – Spa Certificate – Champagne – Caviar – Jewellery – Stationery – Anything Silk or Cashmere – a gorgeous piece of Art, China or Crystal etc

I’m not sure how much you should spend, as I don’t know the social circle you run in (consequently $ 200 might be just right… or too much).  If you are close to the Host you could always call her for guidance (overspending can be just as embarrassing as underspending)

BUT if she is a classy lady I can tell you she’ll probably say, “Whatever you can afford, the gifts are just for fun, your presence is the important feature”

And if she has some classy friends, then no one will be too worried about, or pointing out who spent too little or too much… anyhow.  The whole idea will be to get together with some great women and have some fun, the gift exchange, will just be a small aspect of the activities planned no doubt.

Enjoy… I wish I was going (lol, thinking now I might want to plan such a party for my own GFs)
