If I have two girlfriends that are hosting our engagement party do I give a “better” gift to the one who’s house it is? And do I give her husband a gift as well for letting us use their house?
What kind of gifts should I give????

For the showers that my friends & family hosted, my goal in my hostess gifts were to get something thats practical. I went to the Dollar Store and got little tote bags rather than gift bags. I filled them with some organic fair trade lotion and soap from the natural foods store. (I can’t stand cosmetics with all the fake chemicals and harsh scents!) I also included a small umbrella from the Dollar Store and included a thank you note that said, “here are a few things in case of a shower and to use in your shower.” For another shower that was hosted in my honor, I gave mini bottles of wine with mini wine glasses (rom Pier One) and attached ‘thank you’ charms to the glasses.

For my 3 friends hosting our engagement party we got them each a $50 gift card to the spa and a bath and body works set (lotion, body wash, bath salts, loufa).

i went to an engagement party once, where you had to bring them a bottle of wine to start their wine cellar, i thought that was a fantastic idea. You could always do something like that, with a nice card?
I’ve recently been looking at ring dishes on etsy, and got to thinking that would be a fantastic engagement gift. There’s even a set on there that has one for a “mrs’ and one for a ‘mr’.
EDIT – I clearly did not properly read the question, sorry, my answer makes no sense lol
