Don't Arrive Empty Handed | Our Guide to Hostess Gifts

silver tray with pears

Never show up empty handed.  And always give your hosts something they can use after you've left. That's some good motherly advice.  
 

But it's not just about bringing something, it's about bringing something special, that matters.  Every hostess gift I give is measured against the huge branch of mistletoe my friend Christopher brought to my house one evening when he arrived for dinner. Now that was special. 

We try to channel Christopher whenever we visit our friends and arrive with something special that our host can use and most importantly, will love.
