It’s becoming that time of the year when we are going to be attending dinner parties and visiting friend’s and family’s homes for appetizers and cocktails. As we teach our children to try their best to never go where they are invited empty handed whether they bring wine, flowers or a little handmade gift. We all love to show our appreciation to the hosts who so graciously thought enough about us to invite us to share in friendship, time together and laughter.
What hostess doesn’t love to be presented with an extra bottle of wine or beautiful seasonal flower arrangements? It is usually the most convenient option for me to pop in to the grocery store to purchase but it’s not always the gift I truly wanted to bring. I’m always on the hunt for unique and unusual gifts that people typically don’t have but would be happy to receive. Practicality is important to me when giving and receiving a gift, most likely, it’s not going to get lost in a kitchen drawer or closet or worse yet, get re gifted!
This year, I have decided to get ahead a bit and have a few hostess gift items on hand so that we aren’t rushing around last minute. Check out these 6 Great Hostess Gifts For $25 or Less that you can order online now and have ready to go.
While we are talking about unique hostess gifts, read along at Design Sponge on how to be a gracious host and guest the good ol’ southern but modern way. We all need a little refresher this time of the year. Enjoy getting ready for the holidays and most of all find the joy in spending time and laughter with your friends and family and expressing how much you appreciate them in your life.
