I wouldn’t stress too much about it.  If your bridesmaids are the only hostesses, I think you can just give them a gift for the wedding at the rehearsal next month and be done with it.  My SIL did this when I was in her wedding in February and I didn’t think twice about it.

For her wedding, my sister got us all Bath & Body Works lotion & shower gel with a note tag that said “Hope your next shower was as great as the one you threw me!” or something like that. She got us all stress-relief lotions since we had stressed so much about the shower.

I made makeup cases for my bridesmaids hostess gifts, and I filled them with pocket mirrors, hand sanitizer, nail file, Q-tip box, and lip gloss.  But that project was started months ago so I would definitely not attempt it!

I was really excited about my hostess gifts- and my aunts were shocked that I thought to get them something! I bought monogrammed tote bags from Etsy and cute matching umbrellas (get it- a shower?). I thought it was pretty funny! PM me if you want to Etsy seller, her prices were great.

Get something that fits their personal interests.

I had a bit more time (a week and a half I think) to put them together but I gave them each a hand knit face cloth (my mom makes them so she happen to have a bunch on hand but they are like this) and yummy soaps from etsy as well. If you’re interested in the seller I worked with let me know!

I wrapped the soap in the cloth, put a ribbon on it and wrote a nice little note with their name on the otherside. It was quick and cost about $10/person (didn’t have to buy the cloth).

I went to Anthropologie and got each of my Aunts (my shower hostesses) mugs with their initials on them:

Then I filled them with homemade toffee.  (I had some extra time on my hands for that…)  You could always just fill them with storebought candies, or even tea or hot chocolate…

@Miss Peace I’m not sure who’s hosting your shower but if it’s 1-2 people I’ve heard of sending flowers the day after. Perhaps have a card written up and give it to your Mom/Sister/MOH/someone who will certainly be there just so you’re a bit prepared.

You could also make the gifts and assign them to another person to bring ahead of time. Just a thought! Enjoy your shower!

I just hosted a shower last weekend and spent over $200 on everything. I was given a thank you card in the mail. Maybe it’s a regional thing but shower gifts aren’t really too common over here.

I’ve never heard of giving a gift to the people who host your shower… I’ve never got one before. I’ve only been given a gift for being part of the wedding, and it’s always been something small, like earrings or the shaw matching my dress.

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”
