woman giving friend a gift

As the bride-to-be, you’ll spend the better part of your bridal shower opening pretty packages from those who love you most. So why not bring a little bridal shower hostess gift for the wonderful people in your life who made it all happen? It doesn’t have to be anything budget-busting (after all, you’re probably spending far more than you even realized you would on your big day, not to mention all of the events leading up to it)—it just has to be thoughtful.

Thank those throwing you the get-together with one of these small bridal shower hostess gift to show how much you appreciate all the thought and love they put into throwing a special celebration in your honor.
