I’m glad that I saw this because I didn’t know that it’s customary to give gives to the shower hostess.  Is it very common?

I’ve hosted several showers and not received any gift or thank you.  But I should know and start planning if that was out of the ordinary!

This is news to me….when i hosted a bridal shower i was not given a gift. I do not believe that this is customary.

I’m not sure that it’s customary – but I’ll definitely be getting something small, at least, for the two aunts throwing my shower. Probably gift cards so they can choose something they like, along with a card. 🙂

I gave my hostesses personalized shower gel and personalized soap along with a card that said that I hoped their next “shower” was as amazing as they made mine. It was inexpensive,but thoughtful because I wanted to show that I appreciated them 🙂

I got mine a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant and told them they deserved a great dinner on me. Groupon did wonders since we live in different states…

The Bridesmaid or Best Man who hosted my shower got a cute set of Oliver appetizer plates from CB2. What do 20 people do to host one wedding shower?

I had never heard of this, but it’s a great idea! My mom and bridesmaids are hosting (but not sure if it’s at another individual’s home), but I assumed the gifts we hand out to bridal party at the rehearsal dinner are thank you gifts for putting up with us and hosting all the extra events…

what if the shower is a surprise? obviously, I can’t bring a gift for the hostesses when I’m not supposed to know about it ( but I do) ?
