my hostess gift- LIP

My mother and MIL are hosting my shower. I got them these grandmother suitcases and inside I'm putting blankets embroidered with our LOs' names. (Their names were going to be a secret but DH slipped to a few people so I thought it'd be a good time for everyone to know at once because it's not going to stay a secret for much longer now.) I'm also planning on putting some baby books about Grandmothers inside. Our twins will be the first grandchildren on both sides. What do you think?

  • I think that's super sweet and cute! :D
  • They are definatly very cute but, I assume they are for LO when they are going to stay with grandma- so, wouldn't that mean that these will be living at your house? I wouldn't consider it a gift for grandma if you and LO are the ones who will be using it. Unless I misunderstood and you plan on filling them with overnight things and perminantly leaving them at Grandma's house as more of a suitcase to store that stuff in, then I guess it would be o.k.

  • If you want to get technical then I guess you're right. My mothers are very sentimental and I know it'll mean a lot. They'd appreciate me spending money on a thank you gift that they'll remember rather than a gift certificate, etc.

    I just wanted to show that not everything is black and white with hostess gifts. IMO, if you truly know who you're giving a gift to whatever comes from the heart won't be tacky or unappreciated- even if it's a gift from the baby/babies. KWIM? Wink

  • I think this is a super cute gift. My mom and MIL would also have loved them, even though they're technically for your own use.

    I don't see why you couldn't leave them at the grandparents' houses, though.
