The holiday season is finally here and for many that means it is time to get together to share a few laughs while exchanging gifts. If you’ve been invited to multiple holiday bashes, you may be wondering how to show your thanks to the hosts. Figuring out the right gesture can go a long way in making the host feel appreciated.
1. Bring a few dishes
Most hosts will tell guests that they don’t need to bring anything other than themselves to the parties, but it can still be nice to offer something for the invite. If you’ve been invited to a close friend’s bash, you may want to bring along a few of your favorite hors d’oeuvres or a festive dessert for them to put out.
2. Pamper the host
Pulling a party together can be stressful as the host will need to think about food, entertainment and more. A great gift to offer a host may be a gift certificate to a local nail salon so she can pamper herself following the fete.
3. Come bearing holiday flowers
Another perfect way to say “thanks for the invite” is to bring along a hostess gift of flowers. A fabulous choice is Teleflora’s Send a Hug Night Before Christmas arrangement. This selection of red roses, carnations and huckleberry is accented with eucalyptus and holly branches. Plus, the flowers come in a cute Night Before Christmas teacup the host can use during future holiday seasons.
