A gift for your host or hostess is never a bad idea. It simply shows that you appreciate their hospitality.
Consider bringing a gift to a casual dinner party, a housewarming or for weekend visit. It doesn’t have to be anything grand or expensive; just consider their tastes and interests.
If you know they like wine, bring a bottle. Specialty food items like a tea or coffee gift basket is also a great idea. Of course, you can rarely go wrong with fresh flowers or a plant, especially for a housewarming gift. Candles, natural soaps and towels are other fabulous ideas for a housewarming or weekend visit gift. If you’re a master in the kitchen, consider bringing a nicely wrapped decadent dessert.
I know it’s a cliché… but it really is the thought that counts.
