My Favorite Hostess Gifts

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.

My Favorite Hostess Gifts1. Capri Blue Volcano Hand Soap & Lotion Caddy, $38

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.)
