Fool Proof Hostess Gifts….

Tis the season for lots of holiday gatherings both big and small…. and we all know that if you are the hostess; it usually ends up becoming more work than you originally thought it would be.  That's why I'm a big believer in always showing up at the door with a little token of appreciation….  And, with a mile-long 'to-do' list this time of year; I'm also all about keeping it simple and (no surprise) sticking with the classics that are sure to please….


  1. It doesn't matter if you're an excellent baker or not; she will surely appreciate waking up to a breakfast that doesn't involve messing up the kitchen again…
  2. Something she wouldn't necessarily buy for herself; a quirky yet useful item (especially if it doubles as a memento of the occasion) is sure to put a smile on her face
  3. No explanation needed…. there is always a reason to celebrate when there's champagne (she didn't have to buy herself) chilling in the fridge
  4. Again, whether she decides to share them with guests or hoard them away in her closet for later; she will be thankful you came bearing this love language
  5. Whether it's a potted bulb or one in full bloom; it will bring her several weeks of virtually care-free beauty
  6. And, finally…..Yes, a beautiful smelling soap in a nice container can make dish pan hands and germ protection just a tad bit more enjoyable this holiday season…
Now…. let's party! :)


  1. So many great ideas - love the wishbone bottle opener!!

  2. Hard to beat a nice bottle of champagne and/or a box of chocolates!

  3. Good karma. I am glad I picked up a couple for you yesterday on flower day! Love you.


Thanks for sharing!
