    I gave my shower hostesses pearl necklaces and earrings. 🙂

    I did a wine basket for both of my showers.  It included wine charms, a bottle of wine and 2 wine glasses with their initials.  It seemed to go over well.

    FI’s aunts threw us an engagement party.  We brought each of them a basket containing a bottle of their favorite wine, a wedge of fine cheese, and a scented candle.  They LOVED it!

    I think it’s a really nice gesture.  Since my Maid/Matron of Honor is hosting my bridal shower, I’m going to add something extra special to the gift I’m already giving her (and the rest of my bridesmaids), which I will just give to her during the rehearsal dinner when I give them all their gifts.

    If my mother/bridesmaids are throwing my shower, wouldn’t the gift be covered under that?

    @kingytobe: I suppose it could be; I did separate gifts though on the day of.

    Oh, okay.. I’m  glad you guys told me.. I would have just overlooked it!

     

    ETA: would a small amount of personalized stationary be good? ie. some cute note paper or post-its with their name?

    I couldn’t think of a gift for my Mother-In-Law and SIL who threw my shower, so I paid for their hair & makeup at the wedding.
