An Au Lit Guide to Hostess Gifting
Our mothers always taught us to knock with our elbows - that is to say, don't show up to someone's home empty handed. While a bottle of wine is always a welcome offering, you can separate yourself from the hostess-gift-giving crowd with these lovely hostess gift alternatives...
1. Table linens
While your gracious host may not be ready to incorporate this thoughtful gift day-of, (s)he will surely be excited to break it out when the next set of dinner guests come through.
2. Eye mask
Entertaining can be absolutely exhausting. Usher your hostess into a night well slept after a job well done with a 100% silk eye mask.
3. Faux Fur Ice Scraper
Honestly, we want to recommend these out-of-the-box ice scrapers for everyone on your list, your gracious hostess included. Not only is it perfectly practical, it's also a wonderfully unique take on a winter essential. Who knew cleaning off the car could become something to look forward to?
4. A candle
In our comforting and relaxing Earl Grey scent, a candle is always a welcome addition to the home.
