Bridal Shower Hostess Gifts

What an original title, huh? I had my bridal shower on Saturday, so I wanted to share with you my shower hostess gifts! Since BM S is the only one of my bridesmaids who lives in the same town as me right now (and my two sisters either have a newborn baby or are very pregnant) she ended up planning most of my shower herself. I/we have fabulous friends here, so a few of them helped out and I am SO thankful. The wedding has really shown me how blessed I am by the people in my life. 

All of my hostesses were college aged girls, so I wanted something a little more fun than some of the ideas I'd seen for hostess gifts for your aunt/godmother/etc. I happened to find these picture frames, and decided to get one that matched each of my hostesses' bedrooms. I filled each one with a picture of one of my favorite memories with them.


And since their gift bags just had to match the theme, I decorated them with my favorite stamp embossed in pink (of course!). 


And then I wrote them each long thank you notes in a damask card. I think they turned out pretty cute:


 BM S will be getting another gift, but I needed my mom's help with it and we've had a crazy last couple weeks, so it's not quite finished. I can't wait to share it with you after I've given it to her, because it's a fun gift and is not hard at all to make! 
I'll be sharing more details and pictures from the shower within the next couple days!

What did you gift your shower hostess(es)? 

*PS - Congratulations to the newly married Mrs. Beever and Mrs. Mojito!!
