I think a note would be fine, but a gift would be very nice.

I would do a note and a bottle of champagne or a potted plant/flower or something little as a token of thanks.

I think a small hostess gift is appropriate.

A agree with Girlwitharing.. a nice hostess gift, something personalized would be extra special too!

i think it depends who’s throwing the shower. my bridal party and parents are throwing my shower, and we’re getting them a very generous gift for the wedding already. but if it was someone else, i think a small gift would be nice.

I don’t know that there’s any right or wrong answer here.  I wouldn’t do too much though, they are doing this as a gift to you and you wouldn’t want to defeat the purpose.  I think if it were me, I’d get a card and a little gift, like a candle or something like that.  It can’t hurt right?

A card would be nice. But I think a gift is nicer but not expected. We had a tiki shower for me, and I got all my bridesmaids and Maid/Matron of Honor personalized beer Koozies, even my parents. They loved them. It said their name on the front and what they were in my wedding.  Good luck!

I bought pretty vases for all the people who hosted my showers from Crate & Barrell.  They were on sale for $7 each!  They also bought me gifts for the shower, so I sent them thank you notes for the gifts and mentioned how much all of their time and effort meant to me.

I agree with other posters that a hostess gift is appropriate.  And of course send them a thank you not after too.

I think you should get a nice hostess gift (even if it’s something ‘easy’ like a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine).  Something small you know the party throwing the shower would enjoy!  The gesture will go a long way!

Thank you card for sure but a hostess gift would also be nice.
