Is anyone getting their baby shower hostess(es) a gift? If so, what? I would like to get them something, but am drawing a blank!!

Oh geez, didn't think about this either. I would love some ideas too! The only thing that I can think of off the top of my head is to get them spa day gift cert's? My sister and mom are throwing me my shower and they both love mani's/pedi's so I know they would enjoy that gift, especially since it should be warming up here by then to be able to use it.

Spa day is a great idea! I have been looking at Pinterest and I saw an idea for a bottle of wine and an engraved bottle opener. My hostesses love their wine/beer, so I might go with that. Another idea that was cute was doing some sort of homemade gift basket with soaps, lotions, jams, jellies, etc. I am really poor these days, so I want to do something thoughtful for them (they are working so hard) but keep it within the budget.

I have been racking my brain about this because one of my showers is being hosted by 2 people so no problem, but the other two are being hosted by multiple people and unfortunately I'm not rich.
I was thinking of doing a small thank you speech and handing out flowers?
But is that too lame?

It really depends on the person. My mom would so go for a speech and a flower, but shes a very simple person. There are people that always have expectations. My bottom line is they should be doing the party from the heart, not with the expectation of getting something in return.
