Gift Guide: Hostess Gifts


Now that the holiday invites are rolling in, it’s time to start thinking about the perfect hostess gift because there’s nothing worse than arriving at someone’s home with your arms swinging.  Whether your budget is $20 or $100, there’s always something lovely and thoughtful you can bring to show your appreciation and extend some holiday cheer.  I usually rely on a few favorites such as beautifully boxed soaps, chic coasters, decadent truffles or something functional and stylish such as these wooden salad servers.  Most importantly, do take the time to wrap your gift with high quality paper or a festive bag adorned with a bow.  It shows you not only took the time out to select a gift, but that you also took care in how it was presented.  To me, the presentation is an integral part of gift giving….after all, first impressions are lasting impressions.
