Re: Baby shower host gift ideas

I purchased homemade pumpkin butters on etsy and gave those to 3 of my hosts (was a fall shower) and I got my mother a tea infuser and my sister something coffee related for my other shower.

I wouldn't worry about it being tomorrow. I just sent the thank you gifts out like the thank you cards.. except, I had them sent directly from the etsy supplier, so I didn't have to worry about shipping.

Re: Baby shower host gift ideas

I ordered my two hostesses hand made pendants that represented their children. One hostess had a simple one with her son's name on it and his birth stone. Hostess number two got a pendant that had a Bible Verse on it regarding being a mother, and had her two children's birth stones on it. I got it from Tiny Love Treasures who is on Etsy, but she's here on DS too and gives a discount and flat rate shipping to DS mamas.

With DS3, I gave my hostess a candle, in a nice bowl complete with the shiny little smooth stones.

You could do a gift certificate to a salon for a mani/pedi. Or a gift card to a favorite store. Bath & Body Works stuff is nice.

God bless!

A nice loaf of bread and bottle of jam from great harvest is quick, easy, and nice for anyone. Unless they are like my dh and have celiacs that is.
