Being a hostess is hard work, and even the most experienced entertainer appreciates a small token of thanks for a meal or party enjoyed by all! For the hostess who loves sharing home cooked dinners, a piece of cookware, a chic serving board, or a set of cheese knives is a welcome addition to the kitchen. A potted plant or topiary to brighten her home is surprise we love for the hostess! If your hostess isn't a green thumb, bring along a scented candle in her favorite seasonal fragrance. Finally, you can never go wrong with a gift for the pantry. An artisan chocolate bar, jar of honey, bottle of olive oil, or flavorful spice blend is a useful and delicious surprise.
