I also have been known to give out my recipe for my awesome vinagrette along with a basket that includes all the ingredients to whip it up and a lovely cruet bottle. I even give my specially jarred roasted garlic. I make it in large batches so we always have roasted garlic on hand. If you gve a hostess gift make it something memorable. Don't give something unhealthy or a bouquet of flowers that wither and die. Tania from chiquiita 1 year Last Christmas, I invited some friends for a holiday get-together and I was so happy to receive plants as gifts. A year after, I have these plants and just by passing the plant I remember my friends, which is great. These kinds of gifts last for many years and some for a lifetime like the books, or coasters, of wine racks...etc. lauragreene97 1 year I love to give books as hostess gifts, of course tailored to the interests of the recipient! For instance, I got invited to a holiday party by my neighbor. He's a major history buff, and has recently gotten interested in Israel in particular. I bought him a copy of "Rebirth" by David Longueay (http://rebirthofisrael.com). I'm planning on giving him that and a bottle of wine. yayoknay 1 year Snoozies are a pretty cool gift this Christmas...http://yayoknay.com/category/retail/ See More Holiday Holiday Nov 05, 2013 The Basics: Roasted Butternut Squash DIY Nov 30, 2007 DIY: Blueprint-Inspired Holiday Project Workout Clothes Dec 03, 2013 The Ultimate Gift Guide For Fitness and Health Holiday Dec 03, 2013 300-Plus Gifts For the Geek in Your Life Holiday Dec 20, 2012 Holiday Gift Ideas For Your Most Fashionable Friend!
