Tis the season for parties! Bringing the hostess a thoughtful gift is nice gesture. I love flowers, but it is always awkward when a guest walks in and hands you a large bouquet of beautiful flowers, that need to be cut, arranged and placed in a vase. I have a tendency to run a bit behind when I’m entertaining, so to stop and do an arrangement is the last thing I want to do. Here are a few suggestions of hostess gifts I would love to receive.
I love tea, and a tin is always a nice gift and everyone can appreciate fine teas. One of my favorites is Paris by Harney & Sons.
I also love champagne. Veuve Clicquot yellow label is one of my favorites. At the holidays, you can find it in a nice gift box and at Costco at a slight discount.
If you are a “bouquet of flowers” type, give a nice succulent arrangement. Many florists, and nurseries do beautiful succulents or if you have a green thumb you can make your own.
Candles are always a welcomed hostess gift. Who doesn’t love a nice candle? There are so many to chose from and you can sometimes find nice ones at TJ Maxx and other discounters. I always look and when I find nice ones I stock up on them. I love Voluspa candles and you can find them here.
If you know your hostess well a box of macarons is a nice gift, especially if it is a small gatherings and the hostess can share the macarons. My friend Blaine gave me a box and they were delicious, and I was happy to share them with the group, because I would have eaten the entire box! Lette Macarons.
Notebooks, journals, and pretty notes are always a welcomed gift. I still like to send handwritten notes and although I have all the gadgets, sometimes it is nice to take pen to paper and jot down thoughts. TJ Maxx always had a large selection of paper goods.
This is a fun notepad for the hostess with a sense of humor…
Happy Monday. I am going to be decorating today and will post pictures this week. I love Christmas!
