For The Hostess; By Julia Black
Nothing says ‘thank you’ like a cheerful, albeit thoughtful, gift for your holiday party host. Ideally, the gift should be a token of appreciation that’s easy to receive like a delicious bottle of wine. It’s simple to pass off to the bartender (i.e. husband or partner) and it keeps guests happy while the host continues preparing for the evening.

But why stop there? A sincere declaration of gratitude delivered with your favorite red or white, now that’s a terrific guest. This holiday season try pairing your favorite bottle of vino with a peerless pair of wine glasses such as On The Rise Wine Glasses from Anthropologie, which will surely rise to the occasion with their delightfully fresh color assortment. You might also consider bringing along a fun trivia game like Wine Wars Trivia. You never know when your host might like to switch up the entertainment! Finally, an elegant and festive box of dessert plates from West Elm, topped with a sumptuous box of Belgian Truffles or Jelly Beans from The Hudson’s Bay Company make for a simply sweet ending, one your host will be grateful for right into the New Year.
