Thoughts for Thursday | My Favorite Hostess Gifts

I don't know about you, but I feel like we go to a ton more parties and get-togethers in the fall and winter than any other time of the year, between Labor Day parties, Halloween parties, "Friends-givings" and buckoos of Christmas parties, we're movin' and groovin.' 

And because I'm from the South, we were taught to never show up at someone's house empty-handed. Ever. Whether a bottle of wine, a bouquet of flowers or something else, I try to make it priority to always have something for the gracious hostess when we are there for a dinner or a party. 

Here are some of my favorite gifts for a hostess: 

one || two || three

six || seven 

What about you? Do you bring a gift for a hostess? What are your go-to gifts? 

Linking up with Annie and Natalie today

  2. love all of these ideas!! Candles are ALWAYS my go-to because it's so hard to spend $25ish on a candle for your home but I know how much people love a nice candle! Love the lotion/soap idea and a bottle of wine is always appreciated ;)

  3. These are great ideas!! I'm the same and like to bring something - usually if it's Gary and I we bring wine if it's a girls night then I do champs and then a candle or something! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. I love always having something on hand to take with me when I'm a guest! Wine/Champagne/Food items are always our go to's but I love the idea of candles too.

  5. I love to take a hostess gift! It's just born & bred in us southern girls :) I like candles, wine, etc.

  6. Love these ideas. I've never thought of a topiary, but I love that idea!!! I'm usually the gal that brings the wine, but I also love candles and cute cocktail napkins!!
