Tuesdays with Ty - Hostess Gift Ideas

The past few weeks Brandon and I have been overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity from our friends and family for our wedding showers.   So far we have had 3 showers hosted by different people...one from my friends, one from my dad's side of the family and one from Brandon's family.  With 2 more on the calendar before the wedding I am seriously humbled by how much love has been shown to us.

To show our thankfulness to those hosting the showers we have been getting each of our hostesses a small token of our appreciation.  It does not have to be anything big, just something that you know they will enjoy.

Here are a few ideas for hostess gifts:

  • Cute tote bags - I recently got my 2 hostesses the cutest little tote bags at Peggy's Gifts on Clay Avenue.  Luckily they are my neighbor and have TONS of cute ideas perfect for hostess gifts:)  One of the bags was even insulated, so it was perfect for the mommy to be to tote bottles, etc.
  • Mani/Pedi gift card- This is something that women cannot get enough of, so you can't go wrong!  An hour in the mani/pedi chair can make you feel pampered and revitalized.
  • Entertainment ware - One of my hostesses had recently moved into a new home, so we got her some fun glasses for entertaining from Pier One.  They were cute and inexpensive.
  • Stationery- A gal can never have too many cute note cards!  If you can think far enough ahead, have them personalized with their name or monogram.

Remember, it really does not matter how big the gift is.  Just that you thought enough to get them something they will enjoy.  Something they wouldn't do for themselves.  They are making you feel pampered by hosting your shower, so do the same for them.

Happy Planning!
