Hostess with the Mostess

This is the time of year when there are lots of parties to be held, dinner parties to entertain, and balls to attend. If you are a guest, it is always a rule (at least for me) to always come to the party with something in tow for the host or hostess. This doesn't have to be anything extravagant; a nice bottle of wine will do. However, if you want to be the guest to remember, then get creative!
Pottery Barn has a lot of great options and they even have a section entirely dedicated to hostess gifts. In my opinion, a hostess gift should be something that a host or hostess would find useful but wouldn't be something they would purchase for themselves. Anything monogrammed gets an A+ in my book.
I love this decanter from Pottery Barn. Perfect for any spirit enthusiast.
I love the idea of giving the host or hostess a baked good that is breakfast friendly. Chances are, the host(ess) will be up late cleaning and will love to have a delicious breakfast already prepared for them in the morning! The above sticky buns are from Williams Sonoma but something baked yourself will be just as appreciated! 
This is a great gift option! Monogrammed cutting board is good for a man or a woman and is perfect for a newlywed couple!

Moose Munch- Harry and David. For the most part, Harry and David is a bit overpriced but I LOVE their Moose Munch. Hopefully this doesn't come around the C household ever because I promise you, I will eat it all.

A Tervis Tumbler is always an appropriate choice. I love the personalized ice bucket option!
Other options include:
  • Fun cheese knives
  • caspari napkins
  • wine, champagne or any other drink of choice
  • wine markers 
  • baked goods
What are your go to host(ess) gifts? I'm always looking for great new ideas! Have a fabulous day!
