Hosting a bridal shower, like any event, can be hard work. Especially with all the ideas popping up on Pinterest these days (remember this post?!) — It’s not a competition ladies, stick with things that compliment your guest-of-honor. Anyway, I digress. But as a bride, know that your hostess will put in a lot of extra time to make your shower perfect — and it’s nice to thank her in a special way.
Most likely, your mom or bridesmaids will be hosting your shower and you’ve probably already got some gifts up your sleeve for them come your wedding day. But maybe another woman in your family has offered to host the shower or a friend is graciously opening up her home for the occasion. There’s no need to go crazy with additional bridesmaid’s gifts or totally break your wedding budget, but if someone is hosting your shower in their home, it’s always nice to thank them with a little something.
A bottle of bubbly is always my go-to housewarming gift and it works perfectly for a hostess gift too! Since it’s summer, I always have rosé on hand (don’t we all?) — And this Juvé Y Camps Brut Rosé is my new fav. Don’t let the color fool you — It’s dry and delicious! This double wine tote is the baby sister to your classic Lands’ End beach bag, and is also an adorable gift bag for your wine. Not to mention it’s $9.99!
When in doubt, flowers always, always make the perfect hostess gift. Every girl likes flowers and a simple bouquet is not only thoughtful, but will make her smile all week long. Like I said, there’s no need to go overboard — These little things go a long way!
