Hey Bees! My bridal shower is this Sunday and I am totally lost on what to get as a hostess gift. My one aunt is hosting it (all but 1 BM’s are out of the country) and my other 2 aunts have helped a ton in the planning. One of them is flying in from a different Province to be here!
I would like to get all 3 of them a gift, but am totally lost. They’re all in the 45-55 range but pretty up on current fashion. I want something that can be taken back on the plane, so no big gift baskets. And I don’t want to/can’t spend a ton of money, but a bottle of wine or some lotion is not quite enough.
I have noooooooo clue!! Ideas? Help!

Hmmm… that’s a tough one, especially not really knowing the people. How about a nice wallet? Or keychain… my friend bought me a Coach keychain for Christmas one year that I really love, and I don’t think it was super expensive.
Or maybe a piece of jewellery? I don’t know what your budget is but there are nice things out there that aren’t too expensive.
Are they coffee drinkers? How about some fancy/yummy coffee beans and if they don’t have a grinder you could get one of those too!
My first suggestion was going to be a nice bottle of wine but you veto-ed that 🙂

I’d get a cute clutch or a mongrammed necklace. Maybe you can get a clutch they can use at the wedding – so like in gold or silver, or in the wedding colors?

I got my Aunt personalized stationary for helping with my shower ($3 from Snapfish with free stationary coupon code). Then my 3 BMs a small change purse from Forever 21 ($3 each) with a giftcard to use towards their wedding hair ($20 each). I got my Grandma a potted plant that is just the plant and the bulb since she likes gardening ($10).
They all are getting thank you notes as well. Hope this helps!

Another bee just posted this a few days ago and I loved the idea and just finished doing the same thing for my hostess gifts yesterday.
I got them each a body wash, a loufa and a little candle, wrapped it in one of those cello bags, tied it off with ribbon and it has a tag on it that says “I hope your next shower is just as wonderful as mine was!” It turned out sooo cute!
