I’m in a similar prediciment. My shower is a “surprise” even though I know when it is. I’m pretty sure my Maid/Matron of Honor and one Bridesmaid or Best Man have done everything with the help of my mom and aunt but my other Bridesmaid or Best Man more than likely hasn’t contributed anything. 

My plan is to give them each a “From my shower to yours” gift bag with some B&BW stuff in it and then send my Maid/Matron of Honor and one Bridesmaid or Best Man flowers after the shower. I couldn’t possibly give the two a gift and not give the other Bridesmaid or Best Man something, even if she didn’t contribute, so I figure this will work well considering the other Bridesmaid or Best Man won’t know about the flowers since they’ll be sent after the fact.

For the showers that my friends & family hosted, my goal in my hostess gifts were to get something thats practical.  I went to the Dollar Store and got little tote bags rather than gift bags.  I filled them with some organic fair trade lotion and soap from the natural foods store. (I can’t stand cosmetics with all the fake chemicals and harsh scents!)  I also included a small umbrella from the Dollar Store and included a thank you note that said, “here are a few things in case of a shower and to use in your shower.”  For another shower that was hosted in my honor, I gave mini bottles of wine with mini wine glasses (rom Pier One) and attached ‘thank you’ charms to the glasses.
