    I say yes because they are there for you and they are there to give you a gift so its a nice idea to give them a favor…even something small like M&Ms in your wedding colors is nice.

    I say “No” even though we had them at ours (personalized bags of coffee & chocolate bars).

    I’m also the guest that goes around and looks for left-behind favors to take home.  I’ll admit it.

    Edited to add: I jumped the gun and thought this was for the wedding, but I still don’t think it’s necessary.  My Maid/Matron of Honor gave away cute magnet frames and candles at my shower.

    i think yes. i’ve never been to a shower without them, and i agree with dmarie, they’re there to give you a gift, so it’s nice to give them something small in return. you can never go wrong with edible!

    I don’t think it is by any means a requirement but a nice gesture especially for reasons @dmarie and @artbee said…they are coming to celebrate your upcoming day AND to bring you gifts…so why not give them something (can be as small as home made cookies, still a great gesture)

    They would be sweet, but I don’t think they are necessary. Showers really vary these days. If you are doing a formal, girly event like a high tea, I think you should hollow more formalities. If you are doing margeritas at a friend’s house, much less necessary.

    I don’t think it’s “necessary” but it is customary.  If the people organizing it have it in their budget to get favors, they don’t have to be lavish or expensive.  It can be a cute candle or a little salt and pepper shaker (I saw that and it was so cute!  It was 2 peas in a pod).  I’ve never gone to a shower expecting a favor and I’d never leave one feeling gypped if I didn’t get anything.  The whole purpose is to celebrate the bride… and to eat yummy food.
