Door Prize: Hostess Gifts

Ring the bell with a ‘bread-and-butter’ gift in hand that says ‘Thank you for having me’




(page 1 of 4)

Thinking thematically can make expressing that grateful sentiment a bit easier. Consider your host and hostess, and then hunt for items with a focus — graphic, decadent, natural, or tranquil, for instance. Then present your gift-wrapped token along with your personal contribution of what every house party needs: lively conversation.
