A gift for the host…

If there is one thing I love, it’s a party. And people throw the best parties around the holidays. As a southern girl raised on the importance of hospitality, I appreciate all that is involved in pulling off a great gathering. My mom is the quintessential southern lady, always offering to open her home for a tea, shower or Christmas brunch and I was raised to  value being both a gracious host and guest.

And while I haven’t done as much hosting since adding a fourth child to the bunch, I certainly am aware of the time, money and energy that goes into hosting. So if I’m hosting, the least I can do is be a grateful guest. I try to always show up with a little something to let the host know how much I appreciate the effort they have made to create an opportunity for fun and fellowship.

I can bet there are party invites already coming your way and so for a little inspiration I’ve created a sweet little hostess gift guide. I’m sharing both personalized and non-specific items, at several price points. I love to give a personalized gift when I can. It’s such a nice way to let the host know you picked something specifically with them in mind. At the same time, it’s always a great idea to have a few other small gifts on hand, for that last minute invite, or just in case you forgot someone on your list!
