You should get the host of a baby shower one of those Spa at home baskets. Like the ones the sell at Bath and Body works. Those are really nice. So, she can relax after a stressful day. Some aroma therapy candles would go nice with the basket. You can also maybe purchase a gift card to a nice restaurant. It's always nice to show your host that she is appreciated. Planning a Baby Shower can be very stressful.
