We are right in the holiday thick of things and the other day I couldn’t help but wonder; “I’ve made a wishlist of items I would like to receive. I have other people’s wishlists so I know what to buy them and I have done some community work and given back to those who are less fortunate – so, I am done for the holiday season!”. But clearly I am not. What about thank you gifts for all the gracious people that are hosting me and my family over the next two weeks at their homes for dinners, get-togethers and over night visits. It has become more evident that gift giving to the hostess is more a thing of the past, which I am not sure I like. Gone are the days when a package or a hand written card would show up at your doorstep a few days after hosting friends for dinner. The most hostess’ get nowadays is a quick text thanking them for the shindig and a pile of dirty dishes to clean up on their own. So…I have decided to practice what I preach, take it back to the “old school” and make more of an effort to do the little things that show a host or hostess I was appreciative. In case you need a little assistance picking out the right item, here are a few suggestions that I am sure would put a smile on any hostess’ face – even if they are left cleaning up solo at the end of the evening!
Do you have any sweet and chic gift ideas for hosts during the holiday season? If so, please share with us in the comments section!
