In addition to decorating, I love a good party whether I’m entertaining or going to a friend’s house. That said, proper etiquette suggests you bring a small gift to the hostess as a “thank you” for the invite. Hostess gifts don’t have to be extravagant to be special. An affordable, luxurious gift is always thoughtful. That said, here’s my list of Hostess Gift finds:
