OMG, call me a freak who doesn't know anything about etticate, but I never knew that people gave thank you gifts for the people that throw you a shower. If that is the case then I have been given the shaft many times b/c I have thrown wedding showers and baby showers for friends and family and never gotten anything for my efforts.

Is this usually a standard of what should be done? I think it is a great idea and a wonderful way to show appreciation. I would have been happy to get any of the gifts you all have listed so far. I will definately have to get something for the people throwing my shower ina couple weeks.

Talk about braindead! My friend threw my shower for me a couple of weeks ago... and I forgot to get her a gift!!!! She just found out that she is pregnant... any good ideas for her? I don't want to jump into getting her something for the baby... (before the 3rd month ideally...) please help!

(does anyone else have a case of pregnancy braindead syndrome??)

I am doing gift baskets that I made. I bought baskets and in my moms and motherinlaws i put 2 bottles of wine, 2 wine glasses, and a wine stopper. In one of my sisters I put all bath stuff because she loves that kind of stuff and my other sister I put some bath stuff, knitting items, gift card to barnes and nobles, make up....I can't wait to give them to them next weekend!!

My shower is scheduled for the 29th...the people who were throwing it for me have not done anything....I have had to do it all myself! So do I get to get something special for me?

My baby shower was thrown by my MIL and SIL last weekend~ Because the SIL is adopting her second baby within the next month and my MIL will have 2 additional grandchildren in the next 2 months, I got them both gift certificates for a stress relief facial at a local spa. It is something that neither of them have ever done and will be able to do together. It was very well received by both of them.

Expecting Mikayla Marie to arrive on or near June 3rd, 2006...We cannot wait for our little girl to arrive!

I don't have any ideas either, but I think this is a great thread. My shower is in two weeks and my friend is hosting it. I have no idea what to get her to show my appreciation. Chocolate, candles, spa gifts, flowers? Yikes, this is harder than getting her birthday gift! Maybe a gift certificate to her favorite restaurant?

Sorry - I have no ideas either - but i would love an idea or 2. my mum is throwing me a shower on the 30th of April. I dont want to get her a typical mum kinda pressie. I want to give her something fun that she can use or enjoy.

After all i am hoping that i get some cool pressies and would love to surprise her with one too. she would not expect to be given anything for doing this so it will be even more fun to give her something!

Looking forward to hearing some suggestions!

Let's see...I've had 2 showers so far and here's what I've done. Wouldn't call my ideas creative, but they were appreciated.

I sent flowers to my friend, Cory the day before the shower she threw me so that she could show them off at the shower.

I gave my cousin a gift certificate to a spa.

I still have two more showers to go and am not sure what I will give as thank you gifts yet. Maybe some others will have good ideas to share!

I have 3 wonderful friends that are throwing my baby shower at a cute little restaurant for Sunday brunch. I have seemingly lost all of my creative gift giving ideas. Anyone have any suggestions?
