Perhaps even more important than being a gracious hostess is being a gracious, appreciative guest. That’s why, for every holiday party or dinner I’m invited to, I always bring a gift for the hostess. It’s a great tradition to start, and will guarantee you’ll be invited back every year! As the party and dinner invitations start to come in, I’m careful to set aside a gift I know the hostess will love, and this year, there are so many wonderful gifts to give! Here are my picks for 8 great hostess gifts.
