It’s that time of year when we are attending Thanksgiving gatherings, Christmas parties, and New Year’s Eve parties… it’s a great opportunity to get dressed up, eat good food and gather with family and friends. So if you receive an invitation to a holiday party this year…
It’s also a good thing to take a hostess gift when you attend a party (any time of the year). It’s the polite thing to do, and it shows the hostess how much you appreciate being invited.
Whether it’s a pretty apron or body scrubs so your hostess can pamper herself, or a custom serving platter or a foodie subscription, bringing a gift to the hostess is good thing to do. Plus, if your hostess throws great parties, it will be a good way to get you invited again. Just saying.
