My Maid/Matron of Honor and her mother are hosting my bridal shower at their house. I’ve already purchased a gift for my Maid/Matron of Honor and will be treating her and my other Maid/Matron of Honor to mani/pedis before the wedding. This was part of her Maid/Matron of Honor gifts…which were pretty substantial. So I can’t really afford to get her more for being a hostess. So I was going to give her her Maid/Matron of Honor gift at the shower. (The other Maid/Matron of Honor and flower girls will be there as well so I was going to give them all then. The flower girls are also the daughters of the hostess)
For her mother who has a sweet tooth and loves Dunkin Donuts coffee I was going to make her favorite cookies and get her a travel coffee mug ( one of those nice Tervis ones) and Dunkin gift card.
Is that the right idea and appropriate gifts?

That sounds very nice and like something she would use and appreciate.

Sounds like a great gift that she’ll appreciate.

I think those gifts would be great. My only thing is that I find it strange to give your attendants their wedding gifts at the shower. It just doesn’t seem fitting to me, unless you’re getting married very close to the shower I feel it would be too long of a gap. Also, it doesnt seem fitting Maid/Matron of Honor that’s not hosting would be getting her gift at the shower. It would be different if she was also hosting.
Thats just my two cents. I’m sure either way it will be very nice!

Swebs14: The shower is Sunday (22nd) and the wedding is the following Saturday (28th). And…I think technically the other Maid/Matron of Honor is “hosting” but from what I’ve heard…she’s been pretty MIA save a few “do you like this idea?” texts.
I thought it was strange to do too. But because one Maid/Matron of Honor is hosting, but I have no hostess gift for her, I felt stuck.

I think that’s totally okay then.
1. Technically they are both hosting.
2. Your shower and wedding are very close so they would be getting those gifts that week anyways. I was just thinking if it was a substantial gap it would be odd.
Enjoy your last couple of weeks of engagement!
