No one should arrive empty-handed at the front door when visiting friends during the holiday season. Sure, a bottle of wine makes a great host or hostess gift, but we’ve got other ideas up our sleeve as well!
Satisfy the Sweet Tooth: Does your host love sweets? Instead of arriving with the obligatory platter of cookies or tin of peanut brittle, how about a gift bag or box filled with jars of gourmet chocolate sauces, dessert toppings, cookie decorating supplies and more? You’ll have fun shopping for these in your favorite market or specialty store!
Warm Things Up: If your host is an aficionado of all things hot and spicy, package up a collection of specialty hot sauces! Fiery concoctions are readily available online, or you can cruise the aisles of your favorite market for ideas. Maybe toss in a string of chili pepper lights for fun!
Know an Ornament Collector? We all know someone who’s crazy about decorating during the holiday season. Maybe she has a collection of prized snowman ornaments or Santa figurines or snow globes. Once you know your host’s obsession, package up a few new items to add to the collection!
