I am flattered to have 15 wonderful women offer to host my bridal shower, but I am at a loss for what to give them for hostess gifts. I don’t want to have to break the bank for a party in my honor. Any creative ideas?
We are getting married in Mexico, so possible something Mexican-themed.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

bubble bath/shower lotion with a note: “i hope all your showers are as lovely as mine was”

@Mrs. Meowerson: Cute idea! 🙂
Or, if you want to go with the Mexican theme, a bottle of Mexican vanilla with a bow around it and a card?

if they are splitting the cost of the shower 15 ways, none of them have to spend too much on the shower, so keep that in mind when thinking about how much to spend total on all the gifts. to be honest, if i was one of those women i don’t think i’d expect a gift at all. i’ve only hosted one shower but i co-hosted with only one other girl and the bride didn’t give me a gift–nor did i expect one. i didn’t bring a gift for her to the shower–the shower was my gift to her. (although i did attend a second shower in her honor that i didn’t host and i did bring a gift to that one). i don’t know, sometimes i just feel like there is excessive gift giving surrounding weddings, we’re all just passing money back and forth and ending up with token gifts that we don’t need/want.
sorry, just my two cents, i’m sure a million people will tell me what poor etiquette i have.
