i gave sephora giftcards to the girls who threw my shower.  i think it’s definitely a good idea to give something as a token of appreciation!

Good question, I’ve been thinking the same thing myself recently.  I think stationery sets are nice.  I’ve also thought about wine tasting kit for parties, dessert plates, a vase or a cute teapot.

It’s definitely a nice gesture to give your BMs a gift!  My Maid/Matron of Honor hosted one of mine, and I gave her a really nice bottle of champagne.  My other shower was hosted by Mr. Pengs aunts, and I got them wine from the winery we were married at as a gift.  If your shower has a theme, its kind of fun to pick up on those cues and give your BMs a gift that kind of ties in to your shower theme… like if it’s an afternoon tea, maybe a really cute tea set and some tins of gourmet tea?  Or if it’s a color themed shower, maybe some custom statonery in those colors?  Chances are if they picked the theme, they think it’s pretty cute 🙂 So sticking to a similar gift might be fun!

oh, another question.  When is it appropriate to give them the gift?  Should you give it to them at the shower at the end or should you wait and give it to them another time/place?

I did the same exact thing as Lillindy with the umbrella and shower gel and "shower" theme.  It was a fun gesture. I  gave it to the hostesses at the shower after I had opened my own presents.  I think it’s a nice touch.  I also like the bottle of champagne idea, however!  🙂

I love the umbrella and bath product idea – it is adorable!  I think that you should definitley give the presents at the shower at an appropriate time.  Maybe after you cut your cake (if you are having one) or after you open your presents.  The point is to take a moment out and acknowledge the ladies who went above and beyond for you, not the actual present.

I gave my hostesses gifts and I’ve always gotten them as well. I’ve been given a whole range of things from pretty picture frames to gift certificates to restaurants and spas. I gave gifts based on each person’s tastes.

I did not and I regret it. Give them a gift on the day of your shower. A picture frame with a spot for photos of them from the shower and a thank you card is nice or a spa treatment or manicure

I bought these really pretty votive holders & had candles made to match my wedding colors & got them bubble bath from Bath & Body Works. They seemed to really like it.

I did hostess gifts for the gals who threw my baby showers (with twins on the way, there were several!) and they were good friends, so I got them pedicure gift certificates. For my wedding showers, I found a lovely local gal who makes those bead bracelets that are so popular right now with the ribbon on them. She is making a bunch for me and that is what I decided I am giving-fun, cute and pretty. Personalized note card with the initials on them are nice-very in style right now and quite all the rage. You can buy these in assorted styles and colors.

I hadn’t even thought of this! I have never received anything but agree with everyone that it is a wonderful gesture. I am definitely going to get them something for doing this.
