Holiday Gifting: The Gracious Hostess

Hostess Gifts

My mom always taught me to never visit someone’s home empty-handed. This sentiment seems to run in my family—my cousin, Juli, gave me the Nest grapefruit candle (above) last time she came over for dinner and each time I light it, I think of her. A bottle of wine or some really nice cheese or chocolates are always appreciated, but it can also be fun to think outside the box. With that in mind, I always try to find the most fun and thoughtful gifts when visiting friends and family, always taking into account my host or hostess’s personality and tastes.
