If your bridesmaids are hosting your shower, I would get them a small thank you gift. I did not give gifts to those who attended my bachelorette, but my Maid/Matron of Honor made goodie bags for everyone and I sent a card thanking everyone after the bachelorette. I’m planning to give my bridesmaid their gifts at the rehearsal, which I splurged on and includes several items. I also paid for their dresses, hair/makeup, and hotel room. If I didn’t, I’d probably be compelled to get them a hostess gift for the bachelorette because they will be gifting at the shower and the wedding. BUT I don’t think you need to repay a gift with a gift, if that makes sense. Do what you feel most comfortable! If anything, a genuine thank you card is a must!

My shower was thrown by my aunt, so I brought her a hostess gift.  That seemed easy to me.  

For some reason I’m not sure if I should bring my sister a hostess gift for hosting my bachelorette…I’m just not sure!  I’ll be getting her a bridesmaid gift which I’ll give to her at the wedding.  Maybe I should send her flowers?  

When I think about it, I don’t think my sister got me a hostess gift for hosting her bachelorette…I’m just not sure!  Maybe I’ll just make sure to bring a bottle of wine?

@amandahrbek:  I did give gifts to my bridesmaids and shower hostesses on the day of the shower. A local department store had great jewelry on clearance. I bought 8 beautiful necklaces (all chosen specifically for their personalities) for less than $35. definitely worth it.  When I thanked everyone for coming, I also announced that I had a little something for my awesome hostesses.

I don’t plan on having a bachelorette party but if I did, I wouldn’t do a gift (unless it was an EXTRAVAGANT party.  The next thank you gift will be given at the rehearsal dinner as appreciation for being in the wedding.  I need to figure out what those gifts will be.
