‘Tis the season of dinner parties, family gatherings and friendsgivings! It seems as if every weekend now through January 1st is booked up with warm get-togethers and winter festivities. While it’s always polite to bring dish to pass at these potluck events, it’s especially important to share a small gift with the hostess for taking on such a tremendous feat.
A bottle wine is a classic choice, and certainly brings the cheer, but now is the time to find a special something that shows your appreciation. However, while these next couple of months fill our hearts, they tend to empty our wallets. These hostess gifts are not only adorable, but emphasize that it’s not the amount you spend, but rather the thought behind them.

What’s the best gift you’ve received as a hostess?
I love it when someone brings along their favorite recipe to share, but my favorite gift will have to be a wooden cutting board from my boyfriend’s parents. It was perfect for serving our favorite cheeses and the pumpkin shape fit the holiday season.
