Yes, you should give your shower hostesses a gift to say thank you for hosting the shower.  I got mine some monogrammed dinner napkins and some personalized stationery.

I think its a nice gesture but Im not expecting any gifts at the shower Im hosting. I think it would be a nice surprise. 

If you decide to do it, I would stick to simple stuff like bath and body works stuff or maybe a gift cert. to bed bath and beyond or maybe even some nice flowers!

I got these really adorable tiny white vases with cute sayings on them and put a few silk flowers in them.  I can’t find the website though, but I’ll keep looking.

I also think this is adorable:

She’s So Lucky, She’s a Star

I bought my hostesses umbrellas in our wedding colors and wrote a little note that included the saying “I hope your “showers” are as nice as mine”. 🙂

very cute idea @sara! I am getting my sister (my Matron and shower hostess) a punch bowl set, pretty fitting for her because she likes to throw parties so I know she will get some use out of it.

I had a hard time with this too…I decided to bake goodies for my (nine!) hostesses.  A bit easier on the wallet and something they would appreciate.

Honestly, I forget what I gave my Maid/Matron of Honor for hosting my shower, though I know I got her something.

I recently just hosted a shower for my Maid/Matron of Honor (who’s now the bride, haha), and she gave me a beautiful makeup bag as a gift.  I had been telling her only a few weeks before that I needed a new makeup bag and wanted to get one before her wedding so I could easily transport all my makeup, so the bag was the PERFECT gift.

I got a bracelet for one hostess and a windchime for another – I’ve had friends give table linens, bath and body gifts, jewelry, etc. Just think about what they’d like – pretend its just a regular gift, not a shower hostess gift – see what comes to mind.

Does the hostess gift apply only to those who host the shower at their home? Or do you provide a hostess gift to the person who planned your shower and had it at a restaurant or some other venue? I feel like a bad bride for not knowing this!

I did the monogrammed umbrella idea too, as well as gifts of bath and body stuff – both work with the ‘hope your next shower is as sweet as mine was’ tagline!

I also thought about doing Godiva chocolates and things like that – everyone loves treats!
