    I would add the last two items. Not because I think the gift is cheap, but just because I think those last two items really are unexpected and put it over the edge into “Wow! What a thoughtful gift” territory. Etsy also has these amazing (and cheap!!) bubble bars and bath fizzes that might be a cute option. 🙂

    I think the most important thing you can give the hostesses is your genuine appreciation and thanks. The gift is a sweet gesture too 🙂

    I’ve never heard of giving a gift to the hostess of a bridal shower. Technically, they are supposed to be doing it to support you and celebrate your marriage. Relatives aren’t even supposed to be involved! In fact, according to what I’ve read, you shouldn’t even be informed about it until you receive and invitation! (Although I realize in today’s world that’s a little impractical. What if they had scheduled it for a day you couldn’t come?) Still, it is a nice idea to give a gift to someone who has hosted such an event. I suppose I simply wouldn’t do so until well after the event had taken place, so as to maintain that facade of surprise.
