When I was Maid/Matron of Honor in my friend’s wedding, she gave my gift to me at the rehearsal.

I think you should give them a thank you for hosting the shower that is separate from the gift you would give them for being a bridesmaid. Hosting a shower does indeed deserve a hostess gift.

Im giving mine at the rehearsal dinner. And yes, you should get your girls hostess gifts for hosting the shower.

I would give them a token hostess gift for your shower, and then given them their bridesmaid gifts at the Rehearsal Dinner. These ladies have done so much for you, they deserve both, etiquette really calls for both. Also, I think if only one or two of your Bridesmaid or Best Man host your shower, you really only need to get those girls hostess gifts. But that’s just me

I think it’s usually just something small to show your gratitude. It’s doesnt have to be huge or expensive.

@MaggieGirl:

I think that is sufficent. It really doesn’t have to be much but if they are doing a lot for you it would be nice to show how grateful you are for their help! I do not know what I plan to get my BM’s but I do want to do something. Let us know what you get them! 🙂 Good luck
