So I plan on giving the Bridesmaids their gifts the day before the wedding. My shower is coming up and not sure if I should get them a thank you gift. I was thinking of putting together a little “Shower” thank you basket and giving it to them at the Bachelorette Party. Or do it the day of the shower? Or another date?
Also….do you give something to the girls at the Bachelorette Party? A cute thank you?

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?

Ok..im def. going to give them a little something for the shower. As far as the Bachelorette I think bringing a bottle of wine sounds good! THanks 🙂

@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.

Thank you! I ended up giving it to them after the shower on a different day. Felt weird giving gifts on my day..it as too crazy.
I gave them a gift bag with a loofa, body wash, hand soap, a face mask, and makeup remover- with a hand written note “Thank you for Showering” me with Love…
They loved it!
