I’m wondering who exactly to gift for my bridal shower. I have one old family friend hosting the shower at her house, my sister (and MOH) doing most of the planning, and a bridesmaid providing guidance for planning. Do I give all of them a gift? Do I bring something, like flowers, or wine, to the party as my hostest gift for all of them? Do I just get it for my sister, who will be financing most of it and planning it? HELP!

I am kind of in a similar situation as you. I have my stepmom who’s house it is at, I have my sister (my moh) who is doing the most of the planning, and one bridesmaid who is helping out with the planning (she did a lot of the planning for my bachelorette party too). My other bridesmaids are contributing some money or help, but a lot of them are out of town. I think that I am going to give my stepmom, sister, and the one bridesmaid a hostess gift, but not the rest. I am giving them each a bath bar from Lush and a bottle of wine.

While it is not “required” for the bride to give her shower hostess a gift, she many choose to do so. I highly suggest at least writing a thoughtful, hand-written thank-you note to each of the co-hosts and perhaps reserving a small trinket or gift (like a bottle of wine or a bouquet of flowers) to give to the person who opened up their home to you!

@mirarose92112: I would suggest flowers or wine for the person’s house it is at and then something bigger for your sister/MOH. I gave my sister/MOH a bunch of bath stuff (salts, body wash, candle, loufa) with a note that said “From my shower to yours”, or you could also put “I hope your next shower is as great as mine”. I didn’t get my bridesmaid anything as she only planned a small game.
