I am asking because I am completely ignorant to this issue. So don't beat me up too much haha!!
I have never seen anyone give a hostess gift at a shower before. Is this necessary? Is it regional? I ask because I am currently unemployed and we are on a limited income and are trying to budget our funds carefully. I am being thrown 3 different showers and that means at least 7 people are hostesses (to my knowledge so far).....so that's 7 gifts. I would have to spend a very small amount per person and would feel bad at my lame gift. Like seriously, for that many people I would have to spend like $10 or less.
So is it necessary? Would no gift be less insulting than a cheapo gift?
