Gift Guide: A thoughtful thank you
The beginning of November marks the start of holiday parties and family gatherings. You never want to show up empty handed, so we have come up with a few unique ideas to say ‘thank you’. Our first Gift Guide focuses on the ever important hostess gift, which by definition, is:
A gift which is given to the host or hostess of an event by guests. A small hostess gift is generally considered appropriate for dinners and parties, while guests who are staying for several days may get something larger. The ideal hostess gift is tasteful and elegant, reflecting the presumed good taste of the host or hostess, and it is also something which the recipient would not personally buy for him or herself.
While the hostess gift might seem like a quaint tradition to some, it is still alive and well. We also love the idea of supporting local shops and artisans when sourcing the most unique gifts.
