12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 7 ~ The Perfect Hostess Gifts

Today I’m kicking off my Gift Giving Guide….

I’ve tackled being a great host so today I’m going to talk about giving the perfect hostess gift when you have the privilege of attending a holiday party, dinner or any other function at someone’s home.

Here are the Hostess Gifts I’m giving this year…

Bar Accoutrements

Most people bring a bottle of wine or liquor as a hostess gift and that is TOTALLY okay. However I prefer to bring something that lasts longer. Instead of the usual bottle of wine I like to find a bottle or wine opener that the host can use again and again.

Cheese Board + Slicer

I like to give a hostess gift that can be used at parties in the future.

A cheese tray is a staple at most of my parties so a

cheese board + slicer is an item that most people

don’t already have but will definitely use at their next party.

Monogrammed ANYTHING

I LOVE things that are personalized. It shows that you care

about details and you chose something specifically for your host.

If you opt for a bottle of wine I suggest a wine

 bag to add to your gift.
