Hostess Giving the Mostest

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. 

If you want to jazz up the bottle, I always suggest taking a tea towel, like the plaid one above from Williams-Sonoma and wrapping the bottle in the towel and adorning with a large bow. This is a festive but useful addition

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!

This is perfect! I was just trying to figure out what to take as a hostess gift for a Thanksgiving potluck. Cupcake wine is a great choice. I also like finding festive printable wine-wrappers on pinterest to cover the original label and double as a gift tag.

Cupcake wine! I'm not a big wine person, but we have a dinner party on Saturday night, and although we know the boyfriend, we don't know the girlfriend who is hosting. This seems safe.
