Hosting a dinner party is a lot of work. And if the hostess has not asked you to bring a covered dish, it is always nice if you show up with a little something to bless her.
You could bring:
- Your favorite drink
- Something monogrammed
- A coffee mug
- A pretty candle
- A kitchen tool
- A vase
- A recipe book
- A gift basket
- A plant
- A coffee table book
- A gift card
- Gourmet Olive Oil
- Gourmet Cheese
- Dark Chocolate
- Throw blanket
- Pastries from a local bakery for her breakfast the next morning
A beautiful glass water pitcher filled with Lemons and Limes! This was such a fun surprise to receive from Janelle – aka Miss Comfy In the Kitchen –>>
Janelle showed up at my house a few years ago with this gift in hand and I took pictures and meant to post it …
But someday never came.
So last Wednesday I posted her Homemade Freshly Squeezed Lemonade Recipe
and that is when I remembered that I first saw this recipe when she gave me this gift – because attached to this beautiful glass pitcher was the recipe!
Isn’t that a great idea! So there you go! The next time you are invited to a friends house for dinner – surprise your hostess with this gift (click here to get the recipe). You are sure to receive a smile and a hug!
