My bridal party, mother, mother of the groom, and step mother of the groom are all throwing me a bridal shower….yes I know fingers crossed.
My question is what to give them as a thank you for throwing me the shower. From what I have gathered a tiny gift of appreciation should be given. I would like to give them something practical so would it be rude if I were to put together a individualized set of beauty products to use for the wedding, to help “prep” them for the day?
If not does anyone else have any ideas?

I was wondering the same thing! I think since the ladies throwing it will be in the wedding your prep-kit is a great idea!
The ladies thowing my showers are not in the wedding so I bought a cute antique saucers (on sale for about $1 each!) and am going to buy a nice candle to put on them. I thought the saucer was a little touch of my taste, plus it’s something they can have forever vs. just a candle.
My question is if that is a sufficent gift? Should I get something else also?

There was a post similar to this a couple of weeks ago. Here is what a wrote – I copy/pasted it. I got this idea from another bee last year
My shower was hosted by my bridesmaids, mother, and Mother-In-Law.
I got my mom and Mother-In-Law pandora charms for their bracelets. I got my bridesmaids a few things: The bag that held the gifts had a tag that said “Thank You…”
Each item also had a tag.
Candle: tag said “..for making my day bright”
Gourmet Chocolate: “…for making my day so sweet”
Shower Gel: “..for showering me with love”
And then I got them Monogrammed umbrellas with our wedding colors. It was a ‘shower’ theme.
They all seemed to enjoy it! Especially the umbrellas!

For my BMs (who are hosting the shower at my FMIL’s house) I got them each a cool looking picture frame (all different) and printed out a picture of the two of us. Then for my mom, my future Mother-In-Law and my brother’s fiance, I got them all vintage hankies as a small token.

My mom hosted my shower and my sister hosted my bachelorette. I ordered each of them sea salt caramels from Gilt food (had them delivered after the events, I live in FL and they are both in NY). For my Future Mother-In-Law i got her some chocolates from a local place as well as a picture frame from PB with a pic of me, Fiance and her from the shower she hosted. Also a small photo album with all the pics from the shower (she had wanted a set of the pictures my mom had taken). All of them got a nice little note too and they were all happy!
