hostess gift

OK, OK. I know. I don’t want to think about it yet either. But with November officially here, the holiday season is going to be right on top of us before we can even blink.

I thought I’d start us out slowly and ease into the whole gift guide thing with a round up of ideas for hostess gifts.

It doesn’t have to be the holidays to need one of these gifts. After Sandy there are plenty of East Coasters who are relying on the kindness of others to get by. Once things settle down a bit and life is more normal, any of these gifts would be a perfect thank you to the friends who let you camp out until you had power or the neighbors who helped you clean out your flooded basement.

The truth is, hostess gifts are relevant all year round so don’t let the holiday part of this post stress you out. You have another few weeks before it’s that time. 😉
