Who doesn’t love being invited to festive fall and winter parties? I know I do and I wouldn’t dream of showing up without a hostess gift. Below is an easy hostess gift guide to help you pick one or more items to have on-hand so you can show up with a smile and a nice, “Thank You”.
Hostess gifts don’t have to be expensive to convey your appreciation for receiving a special invite. Growing up, my mother had an extensive collection of silver serving pieces, china, crystal, and anything you could imagine for serving up some truly beautiful New Orleans parties. Not every party was a huge to-do, but they were always with her signature southern flare. One of the things she made a point in teaching my sister and I was you never show up to a party without a gift to present the host with when you arrive. It may be very “old school”, but it’s a tradition that I hope stands the test of time.
Hopefully you’ll find something to give your next host or hostess and maybe even a treat for yourself!
