For our latest video for SheSpeaks we’re talking about some easy hostess gifts. These gifts are great for the holidays and beyond. We talked about if we feel obligated to bring a gift to someone’s house when we’re invited and we were divided on our responses. We both agree that it’s a nice gesture and always well received, so it’s nice to keep a few of these things on hand so you can show up and wow your host with your thoughtfulness.
The breakfast basket was Wendy’s idea and I LOVED it, particularly considering I spent the morning after our holiday party eating left over Mexican food. It wasn’t the worst breakfast ever, but I wouldn’t have turned down a scone or even a donut.
I think it’s worth noting that a hostess gift doesn’t have to be expensive, elaborate or even unique. A bottle of wine is a great hostess gift – just because it’s something that’s commonly given doesn’t mean you should stay away from it.
