If there’s one person you don’t want to be this season, it’s the party guest who shows up empty handed. Whether you’re headed to your best friend’s annual holiday bash or meeting your significant other’s parents for the first time (and in that case, good luck!), it’s always nice to arrive with something that says, “Thank you for having me! I’m delighted to be here!”
Depending on who’s hosting, you can accomplish this with various different finds: a small house plant for the person with a green thumb, a cool set of bar tools for the amateur mixologist, or a teapot for the friend who averages three cups of chai a day. And if you’re looking for something a bit more universal in its appeal, consider a festive box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates. Our years of partying have proved that they’re always a hit, so here’s to bringing your gifting A-game this season.
