While a hostess gift is not a necessity, but it is certainly a very kind gesture.
Even though a baby shower is given out of the goodness of one’s heart, a baby shower hostess gift just says, “Thank you.” If you are having a planned baby shower, consider bringing something with you to leave with the hostess.
When should you not bring a hostess gift?
3. Don’t unwrap the gift. Unlike most other gifts, hostess gifts are NOT opened in front of the giver, so that people who didn’t know to bring a gift don’t feel awkward. The hostess should set the gift aside in an inconspicuous spot or a different room and open it after the party.
What should I bring as a hostess gift?
Appropriate gifts for a dinner party hostess include:
- Bouquet of flowers in a vase.
- Boxed candies.
- Potted plant.
- Bottles of wine.
- Tin of cookies.
- Decorator candles.
- Guest soaps.
- Flavored vinegars.
Do you bring a gift to a baby reveal party?
If the gender reveal is hosted at a baby shower, you would bring a typical shower gift. However, if the gender reveal is separate from the baby shower, you are not required to bring a gift. Some guests do still hold to the hostess gift any time they are invited to a party.
