With the holiday season fast approaching our calendars are starting to get filled with dinners, dancing and invites from friends. I love this time of year! I always try to bring along a great gift for our party hostess, but sometimes it can be hard to figure out exactly what tows the line of awesome and helpful and something she doesn’t already have. Here are a few easy to buy, easy to love ideas.

The Original Peppermint Bark

Forgo the chocolates that will quickly melt by the fire and bring classic peppermint bark instead. The dessert will add a sweet taste to the end of any party and with a scoop of chocolate ice cream it can round out as an entire dessert.

Lunetta

Lunetta Sparkling Wines

I am loving Prosecco wines this season. The bubbles are a great accompanyment to any festivity. Instead of red wine, bring over a crisp bottle of Lunetta Prosecco or berry blush Lunetta Prosecco Rosé sparkling wine instead.

Hand painted Atoll Measuring Spoons

When I am hosting a party I love to have any last minute prep done with pretty kitchen supplies. Having a set of measuring spoons that are basically art work is a simple way to brighten any hostess’s day.

The Giving Plate

The idea behnind this plate is that it keeps on giving! Bake something yummy to bring over on the plate (or maybe the peppermint bark above) and encourage your host to enjoy and gift again. A regift that is obvious and acceptable! You’ve got to love that. :)

Home Sweet Hideaway Dish Towel Set

I have a friend who brings over a dish towel every time she visits. It is such a treat! No hostess can have enough dish towels and gifting pretty ones, like these, makes for a stylish clean up.

anthro-playing-cards

Floral Playing Cards

As the evening lingers on… puling out a pack of playing cards can really keep the party going. Pick a favorite game and get the other guests involved. With a pretty floral pattern this deck will be fun for the night and a great gift to leave as a thank you.
