News Years Eve Party Etiquette: Hostess Gifts?

Q: Should I bring a gift for the hostess of a New Years Eve party I'm attending?

A: We always recommend bringing a little something for the host or hostess of a party. Whether it be a housewarming, open house, casual dinner party or a holiday party, it's always nice to either ask if you can bring anything or, simply show up with a small item. Giving a hostess gift is just another way to show your gratitude and appreciation.

When it comes to hostess gifts, the sky is the limit in terms of ideas, budget and pricing. To get you started, here are some budget friendly ideas we like to recommend!
  • Flowers and chocolates
  • Bottle of the hosts' favourite wine or bubbly
  • A coffee table book
  • Themed gift basket
  • Guest book
  • Kitchen stuff (platters, bowls etc.)

Tell us, what are some of your favourite hostess gifts you've given or received from a friend?
