My four sisters-in-law are throwing me a shower and I would love to give them something cute without breaking the bank. ?Anyone mind sharing what you have done/will do for your hostess(es)? ?
I'm probably doing gift certificates to their hair salons. It's not creative but I know they will use it. We all have different tastes, one isn't married, so it's hard to pick one gift to suit them all. I originally wanted to do monogrammed hand towels and maybe a candle for their homes but it wouldn't suit everyone.
all the girls who were in my wedding helped throw my shower (along with mom and sisters) I got some hand made soap (from etsy) in the shape of eggs, put them in little nests I got at the craft store. Put them in a clear bag, cut a piece of scrapbook paper into a shape so it was the size of the bag (folded like a card). I then punched two holes in the top and tied ribbon through it and around the bag. That way you could see the pattern in back of the clear bag. In the card I wrote "Thank you for helping me dress my nest!" It was just a little something to let them know I appreciated it. The moms I got potted tulips.
For my shower thrown by my friends, I had another friend who makes jewelry, make a necklace/earring set for each of them. We chose pearls (since that will be the baby's birthstone) and she created a different set for each of them that suits their personalities. They loved them!
For my shower tomorrow thrown by my mother-in-law's friends, I got each of them a Willow Tree Angel "Thank You" ornament. They were only about $13 each.
