an important holiday tradition we cannot forget

The holidays often mean holiday parties. And those holiday parties are hosted by friends and family who put a lot of time and money into throwing the perfect celebration for you. So why have we seemingly lost the tradition of brining a hostess gift?

I'll admit, I didn't really begin to think of the hostess gift until this year. Maybe it's something that comes with age, but I should still know better. I grew up watching my parents carefully pick out what bottle of wine to bring with them to every social gathering hosted by friend or family. Why has it taken me until now to remember the art?

But I know I'm not alone. I rarely ever see a gift brought for the hostess at any party I've attended over the years. Yet, they are so fun. It is easy to put together an affordable and memorable hostess gift for those Christmas and New Years parties still on your schedule. In fact, I've done half the work for you.
