Great Ideas To Consider For The Host Or Hostess Next Time

There is nothing like being invited to a holiday party to raise your spirits. One of the few sources of stress this situation involves is coming up with a creative and appropriate token of your appreciation. Fortunately for you, there is a wide variety of choices out there.

THANK THE WINE LOVER

You can never go wrong if you give the party host a bottle of their favorite wine or vera wang champagne, but there are ways to kick this idea up an extra notch. How about augmenting the vino with a set of stemless glasses, with the piece de resistance being a year’s membership in a wine club?

UNIQUE COASTERS

No one enjoys cleaning moisture rings off their wooden surfaces after all of the guests have gone home. Remove this annoyance from your host’s future by gifting them with a set of coasters that match their home décor.

CHEESE KIT

Did you know that you can actually make your own cheese? Yes, they have a kit for that. Especially if your host has gourmet tendencies, they will love this chance to create their own deliciousness.

HOLIDAY DECORATING BOOK

Search online or go to any bookstore, and you will have no difficulty finding a great selection of detailed and vividly illustrated books chock-full of festive ideas. Whether your host is a creative genius or does not believe they have any talent in this area, they are sure to be inspired by at least one of the suggestions they find.

WHISKEY IN ANOTHER FORM

You have heard of liquor baked into cakes, and you can certainly give it in its bottled form. But who knew that you can actually buy meat, specifically salami, that is infused with whiskey? You’re sure to be the only one bringing this host gift to the party.

FESTIVE CANDLES

Candles are ideal presents because they can fill different needs according to a person’s taste. Your host might enjoy a pine-scented one to fill a room with cheer. On the other hand, they might simply love the added decorative touch that a beautiful candle can bring to any room.

COZY COMFORT

Once all of the guests have left and the house is cleaned, what do you think your hostess wants to do more than anything else? Chances are excellent that she would enjoy nothing more than snuggling up in a warm and soft fleece robe. She will always think of you whenever she relaxes in comfort with her feet up.

HAND-CRAFTED STATIONERY

For not very much money, you can purchase a pack of unique, hand-drawn gift cards with envelopes at local fairs, farmers markets or bazaars. Your host will love their individual touch.

BATHING BEAUTY

Sinking into a hot tub is a totally relaxing experience in and of itself. Imagine how much more awesome it would be if your host received a selection of scented bath bombs that made the water both look and smell beautiful.

HOLIDAY SONGS

Music can relax even the most socially uncomfortable party attendees. Go to your local music store and pick up a CD of traditional or modern Christmas favorites.

SWEET TREATS

During and after the festivities, there’s nothing like cookies to tickle everyone’s taste buds. It doesn’t take long to bake a batch of your favorite recipe and place them in a copper cookie jar.

You don’t need to shell out a lot of cash to express your appreciation to your host or hostess. Whether you spend $5 or $500, it’s the thought that counts. That is, after all, what the holiday season is all about.
