When I was a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding a couple years ago, we paid for and threw her the party, and we all bought her a gift.

My bridesmaids are throwing my shower, and I don’t expect gifts from any of them on top of that, but I know that at least some of them are getting me a separate gift.

I honestly don’t know what the usual expectation is, but speaking as a bride whose shower is in a few weeks, I DO NOT want any of my bridesmaids to experience financial hardship to be in my wedding.  If they want to get me a gift then it will of course be appreciated, but definitely not expected.

@LadyChristine:

A hostess of a shower or tea should give the honoree a gift in addition to hosting the fete.
