During the holiday season, it is almost inevitable that you will be the hostess at some point. You are planned to host, but you should also plan to be a guest. Sure, you can always just show up, but here are some tips on how to be a fabulous guest during the holiday season!
Arrive with a bottle of something. Cupcake prosecco is a great inexpensive bubbly option while Veuve is a little pricier, but oh-so-good. Have several bottles of each on hand during the holiday season and you will have a winning hostess gift...even last minute! As for wine brands, I recommend Cakebread as your higher end and Campo Viejo as your average bottle. If you know the host or hostess enjoys something specific, try making time to pick up a bottle of their favorite. If the host/hostess doesn't drink, think about giving something like a gourmet set of teas or hot chocolate.
Attach a gift tag and you are all set! I make my own, print them on heavy card stock, cut them, and attach with ribbon or double sided tape (whichever is appropriate for the gift). I find that making your own is a way to create a unique, personalized gift!
What is your go-to hostess gift? Have a fabulous day!
