Don’t forget about the people who planned your party….
Although I have to admit that this is not a gift category I’ve given a lot of thought to. But leave it to a good friend (and the mom-to-be I’ve been talking about in my baby shower blogs) to teach the master just how it’s done.
In short, if all goes well, you’re not hosting your own baby shower or bridal shower. With bridal showers, it tends to be one of the responsibilities of bridesmaids, hence taking care of your girls with good bridesmaids’ gifts. But baby showers, or any other event hosted by someone else in honor of you, are a different story.
There were a few of us pulling the strings on the recent baby shower, although the mom-to-be did more than her share to be fair. So at the end of her shower she honored us with a pretty awesome gift. One so great, I wish I had thought of it.
She gave us small, pretty reusable bags (I’m using mine as a lunch bag) filled with custom bath and body products made by a local business and a journal.
Suffice it to say, I’m still impressed.
