Shower Hostess(es) Thank You

So my first bridal shower is next weekend (which means the big day just keeps getting closer - yay!). It is hosted by my two MsOH. They have done everything from food, to invites, games, etc. MOH1's mother (who I am very close to) helped pay for the venue. This leads me to two questions:

1: What is a good "thank you" gift for the hostess of a bridal shower? (Is it normal to give a gift or just a card? I've heard everything from a fruit arrangement to a nice handwritten note.)
2: Should I give MOH1's mother a gift/note/whatever as well? MOH lives with her mom (she is just finishing up her degree), so anything that's a bigger gift could be shared, in theory. 

My first instinct is to get a small gift for each MOH and write a letter, as well as writing a letter to MOH1's mom. Any ideas? What have other brides done?

Re: Shower Hostess(es) Thank You

  • Definitely do something for all three of these ladies. A hand-written heartfelt note is fine, but it's also ok to attach the note to a small gift such as a candle or something else you know they will enjoy. My shower is being held at a relative's house so I am giving her a gift in addition to gifts for the hostesses.

    I also say do separate gifts for the mother and daughter.

  • Agree with PP, definitely do individual gifts as well as hand-written thank you notes. They don't have to be big gifts, just something thoughtful.... candle, body scrub, little jewelry, bottle of wine, wine glasses, etc.

    You can do just a nice card. But since you want to go above and beyond. I suggest something that each individual would like and a card.

  • I love the ideas of a candle or something girly they wouldn't normally buy like body scrub. You could also get them something affordable jewelry wise they could wear to the wedding?
