Odds are, you’re headed to at least one party this season held in the home of a pal or a family member. And while there’s nothing wrong, per se, with bringing your host or hostess a bottle of wine (or, in some folks’ cases, a six-pack of beer from the corner deli), there’s something exceptionally special about going the extra mile and toting along a thoughtful and clever gift (which, by the way, doesn’t mean expensive).
From personalized napkins and mugs, to super-cool (or useful!) decorative tokens, we rounded up 20 memorable items we’re positive any gracious hostess will appreciate. (We’d love to receive all 20 at our next house party, too).
