Best Hostess Gift Ideas

This holiday, I am excited that we will be entertaining again welcoming people into our homes, and visiting family once again. I always love to bring a little something to friends or family when I am invited to a party or dinner. My friend Tammy wins the award for best hostess gift ideas when she drops by. She is so thoughtful with her gifting. Do not stress about bringing something the day of if you are scrambling to find something to bring. I also love a thoughtful thank you note or small gift sent in the mail after a party as well.

  1. The diptyque set of 5candles in your hostess gift guide come up at $85 when I follow your link. There is a spot to enter a code, so I wondered if you have one, by chance? Thanks, so much, your guides are great!

    • Hello, Carol! Sorry about that, the price must have been a typo on my end. Thank you for catching that. I wish I had code to share with you for Diptyque but I don’t. Happy Holidays. xo
