Need hostess gift ideas please!

I have 5 of my good friends hostessing my shower in January.  I always have a hard time thinking of hostess gifts so I'm starting early.  I don't want to spend a fortune - maybe $20 - $25 for each girl?  I was thinking about an embroidered sleep mask with maybe some lotion or something?  Have you ladies given or received any different hostess gifts that you really loved?  All ideas appreciated!

  • I've got 3 hostesses.  I found these small metal tubs in Target's $1 section (they were actually $2.50). I found assorted things to stuff them with - bath stuff, cooking stuff, and wine.  They average out to about $28 a basket.  I had great luck finding cute things at Tuesday Morning and TJ Maxx.
  • My fave hostess gift was a gift card to my fave coffee shop. I've seen others get gift cards for a mani with a bottle of polish, an IOU lunch out with the girls before baby comes, self-made gift basket of baked goods, it depends on how good you're feeling when it's time to shop for these things. :)

  • I had two showers, one with 11 hostesses and one with 8 hostesses. I bought these brown gift boxes with handles and glued light blue polka dot grosgrain ribbon abound the box. I baked mini loaves of blueberry pound cake, put in a pewter fleur de lis recipe holder/picture holder. Included the recipe and a $5 Starbucks gift certificate. You could also do a fleur de lis kitchen towel in each box with baked goodies. I had so many, I had to keepthem around $15.
