Hostess Gifts

When invited to an occasion, do you bring a hostess gift? It's always a bit of a grey area, and while the gesture will almost always be appreciated, I always think it's nice to bring a little something to a formal holiday or get together. According to Emily Post, "In some parts of the country, a hostess gift is considered obligatory, while in other places a gift is brought only on special occasions." 

I thought it'd be fun to pull together a little list perfect for the holidays.  Here are some other fun ideas ... 

Christmas Hostess Gift Ideas

Godiva xmas ornament / East of India bar tool, $6.27 / String tag / White kitchen towel / Food drink, $16 / Fall candle / Kate Spade bar tool / Red home decor / Kate Spade round coaster / Cost Plus World Market Castelbel Vintage Christmas White Pine Bar Soap

Given the time of year, a simple ornament is an inexpensive and fun idea.  A festive soap, dish towel, coasters or even chocolates are always nice and won't break the bank. My go-to is always a bottle of wine, and during this time of year I like to put a festive ornament and big ribbon around the bottle's neck so it's a bit more special.

What's your go-to hostess gift? I'd love to know!
