Thank You Gift for Baby Shower Hostesses

The theme at your baby shower was so much fun!

In addition, the food was absolutely delicious, and the decorations were beautiful. The games made everyone laugh, including your mother-in law who can be a little uptight!

Now it's time to show your gratitude to the hostess of your baby shower!

So let's get started!

There is so much time, energy and money that goes into planning a baby shower.

The hostess spends months organizing the guest list and inviting your friends. Then she must prepare or purchase the food and choose the perfect venue. The hostess might have even created the perfect music playlist for your baby shower. All of this is done in order to make your day super special.

Sending or bringing a gift is a nice and classy way to say thank you for babyshower hosting.

When is the perfect time to give them the gift?

Consider bringing something with you to leave with the hostess. There is no need to make a big fuss over it though.

You can just leave it on their table with a little note. You could even hand it to them when you arrive at the party. Or you can give them the gift outside of the party so that it feels more intimate (i.e. over coffee).

Make sure to include a thank you note with your gift. Let them know what you liked best. Tell them how appreciative you are for all of their hard work. Be specific and use details, as it shows you really care!

What type of gift should I give my hostess?

When it comes to picking hostess gifts for baby showers, there are lots of great options. The type of gift depends on the type of person your hostess is.

You would not give a nice book to someone who does not read often. Look at the gift subjectively, especially if there is more than one hostess.

Consider the type of person they are. Think about their hobbies, favorite foods, or scents. Ask them about their favorite books and movies.

Gather your information, add a little bit of creativity, and you can find or make a fantastic gift.

Gift baskets are a classic and simple gift and can be fun to make. With a gift basket theme, you can add a several little items that your hostess would love.

Is your hostess an artist? If so, a nice drawing book with pencils, or pastels, is a practical and thoughtful gift.

Is your hostess a person who is a bit hard to shop for? A small box of nice chocolates or homemade baked goods are yummy ideas. You could also try a gift card for coffee, stationery, or candles.

A nice journal, fancy pen and pretty stationery are great gift ideas for someone with a writer’s mind. I know this is one I would enjoy receiving.

Giving a gift with a personal touch is always a nice gesture. Does your hostess like music? A favorite CD of theirs, with some candles, would be a perfect choice!

Is the hostess a chef or do they have a passion for cooking? How about getting them a cookbook? Or perhaps give them ingredients for a meal with a recipe card along with some cooking supplies.

Does your hostess enjoy wine? You could buy some simple wine glasses. You could get chalkboard paint and paint the bottom part of the glasses. Give them some chalk along with the glasses. They can make their own name markers on the glasses. This makes a nice gift for the hostess who likes to entertain.

Get some nice smelling bath oil, a book, and some wine. You can add candles and then they have the perfect ingredients for a relaxing evening.
