Bringing along a small token of appreciation for your host or hostess is always a good idea- especially during the season of giving. Host gifts don’t have to be elaborate but can be as simple as a nice bottle of wine, or a gift tying into the occasion itself. To help take some guesswork out of the equation, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite ideas for host gifts this year.
