Think Of The Hostess With These Gifts

By no means am I suggesting you should not bring a bottle of something...you should ALWAYS bring a bottle of something when attending a party or dinner. With that said, a great hostess gift is always a good idea as well. Of course, they aren't expected, but let's face it, it does feel a bit odd turning up to an event without something for the hostess who surely put lots of thought, time, energy, and money into hosting a great evening.

And when you are the host, you know just how unexpected a thoughtful gift is, and how special it can make you feel. Big or small, the thoughtfulness will never go unnoticed. So, for the next event, dinner, party that is in your future and deserving of a special hostess gift, here are some ideas for little somethings that are sure to make her feel good.

The key - make it personal. How? Touch on something you know they love, hobby, passion, brand, topic. Here are some thought starters...
