I love being invited to parties throughout the holiday season. But, having hosted quite a few seasonal soirees myself, I know how much work goes into putting on a festive fete, so I always try to bring a small gift as my token of appreciation for all of the hostess’s hard work.

That being said, because the holiday season is so busy, I’m not always well prepared ahead of time. And you never know when you’ll be invited to something at the last minute. That doesn’t mean you have to show up empty-handed! You’d be surprised at how many delightful hostess gifts you can pick up at the grocery store, pharmacy or gift shop on your way to a party.

Whether you choose something for the hostess to share with her family once the guests are gone, like Ferrero Rocher® hazelnut chocolates, or something that will help her relax after catering to all of those guests, these thoughtful, easy-to-find gifts will put a smile on her face.
