With the start of the busy holiday season upon us, I like to pick up a few hostess gifts to keep on hand to make heading out to a party or informal gathering of friends a little bit easier. Don’t get me wrong, I still bring a nice bottle of wine, that’s assumed with my crowd of friends. Since I
usually help the hostess drink it that night, including something extra as a sign of thanks for how much work he or she put into the party is an always appreciated gesture.
The “signature” fragrance of Anthropologie makes the perfect addition to a guest bath.
2. Bitterman’s Black Truffle Salt, $27
An affordable indulgence for any foodie host or hostess.
(Sprinkle on white pizza with a glass of pinot noir for the perfect Friday night meal.)
3. Classic Croissants, Set of 15, $40
Wrap with a giant red bow and include a note for the host to enjoy the morning after the party.
Any of these would be a lovely addition a chefs’ kitchen.
If you’re in charge of the cheese board, include these pretty knives as a leave behind gift.
6. Polished Chrome Wine Chiller, $25
Pop your bottle of wine in the chiller and wrap with a bow – donesville.
The consummate hostess will find a million uses for these.
A wine geek would love this gizmo makes opening bottles effortless.
