A gift for your hostess doesn't need to be extravagant, but a little creativity does go a long way toward making this present surprising and special.
1. Cookbook/ Book:
Try selecting a cookbook geared towards his/her interests. They might also enjoy a book on party planning, home décor, or even a guest book.
2. A Bottle of Wine/ Wine Charms:
Jazz it up a little bit and wrap your wine bottle with tissue paper and tie it with a ribbon. Another popular way of presenting wine is in a gift basket. Load it up with cheese or fruit in addition to the bottle of wine.
3. Gift Cards/Certificates:
If you don't know your hostess' favorite shop, a grocery store, liquor store and/or home improvement store certificate is a great solution.
Choose your favorite arrangement and put them in a vase. The hostess won't have time to cut the stems and prepare them herself.
5. Chocolates/ Sweets:
Can't go wrong here! For the hostess who loves sweets, a candy basket or a chocolate basket full of all these goodies is a perfect treat.
