Whether you’re stopping by a holiday party, visiting a friend’s weekend retreat, or simply stopping by to see the relatives, you’ll want to bring a little something to say “thank you.” A bottle of wine will certainly do, but it might get lost in the fridge next to all the other bottles of wine guests are likely to bring. For a holiday party, you’ll want to bring a gift that’s around the price of a bottle of wine ($30 or under). A Brie baker or stunning wooden cutting board, for example, both under $30, will be functional and memorable. If your gift is an item that should be used at the party, make sure to include all of the extra supplies necessary, like the cheese for the Brie baker. Including a nice note suggesting the host opens the gift and breaks it out is totally acceptable. For weekend home visits, you’ll want to slightly bump up the caliber of your gift. Steer clear of items for the home that are overly holiday themed. They’ll burn bright for a couple of days this year, but your host will end up tucking them away after the holidays are over. Bringing food the host can serve that weekend, like chocolate and cinnamon babka, or wildflower honey, is especially thoughtful because it’s helpful to the host. Think about bringing nice items for the home that feel unique, on trend, but also classic. A bright picture frame, a copper cheese knife set, or a marble Tic-Tac-Toe game set strike just the right tone.
