Being hosted is just so lovely. You’re basically being invited to enjoy yourself free of charge, and usually it’s with people you actually like. Being the hostess, on the other hand, is no easy feat. Hosting a gathering or holiday party requires lots of time and prep, and it’s always nice to feel like your hard work is recognized. This is where you come in—sure, you can bring your hosts a nice bottle of wine or an edible arrangement, but why not take things up a notch and give your hostess something that’ll really show your appreciation? Imagine all the other guests’ faces when they see you’ve shown up with a smokey quartz candle votive, or a Kate Spade Elephant salt & pepper set…Yep, they’ll wish they were as thoughtful as you.
