Six Hostess Gifts That Rock

Are you attending a few holiday parties this season? Lucky you! If so, you are probably looking for the perfect way to thank your favorite host. Here are six hostess gifts that rock!

While I love giving flowers, when given as a hostess gift they create work for the host. A vase must be found and filled and flowers must be cut and placed. The hostess has enough going on when a party starts. I prefer a gift that doesn’t create any extra work for the host.

Gifts for the kitchen are popular because, well, we all use our kitchens and your hostess has likely spent a great deal of time in his/her kitchen preparing for the party!

Gifts for the home or personal use require knowing a bit about the hosts’ decor and interests. Keep it simple if you are unsure of their style.

The key to a great hostess gift? Knowing you host and what they will appreciate and enjoy. It should be a special treat that will make them smile! Happy hostess gifting.
