 My suggestion is to write them each a heartfelt card thanking them and maybe put in a 5 dollar gift card to star bucks. Either that or I’d get some small pots and plant an herb in each one for their kitchen.

My Mother-In-Law did this to me (after I told her no showers) and I don’t remember buying the hosts anything. I was in my last semester of college, paying for some of our wedding, and the eight women that attended were all hosts (they didn’t invite anyone else and I had never met any of them). The shower wasn’t for me, it was for my Mother-In-Law. I wrote them all nice thank you cards and was done with it.

So funny because my shower is tomorrow and is also being thrown by my FMIL’s friends.  There are 6 hostesses and I bought them all gift cards for the movies.  I spent $20 on them and will also write them each a nice thank you card.

I think anything you get will be a nice gesture and I don’t think they are expecting anything either.

You could get them each some fancy bath products to thank them for the “shower.”
