shower: hostess gift??

My mom and her friend (practically my aunt) are throwing the shower for us and I have no idea what to get them. My mom will do the "mom thing" and be upset if I even spend $1 and the other is a bit of a shopaholic but both are greatful for anything. Would it be cheesy if I knit or crocheted them some fancy scarves? They both go to colder climates (visit family) for a week or 2 in the winter and I don't know that they have any scarves (other than the simple one I made my mom last year).

Would that be ok or should I look for something different?

  • I would love a home-made scarf as a host gift.  Especially since your mom is they type who doesn't want you to spend money on her.

  • I think that is really sweet and extra thoughtful.  I wish I knew how to do something like that :)  Nice

    My mom, aunt and 2 sisters are throwing my cousin and I a join shower.  Vera Bradley has little brag books and I got them for my mom and my aunt and my MIL (couldn't leave her out, even though she isn't doing anything for the shower).  Not sure what to get my sisters.
