The first, the hostess. If you are like me you may have had a wonderful hostess over the Thanksgiving holiday who you need to send a gift to as thanks or you have a wonderful event coming up in the next few weeks where it would be ill advised to show up with out a present.
When thinking of a hostess present I am not a fan of giving food or fresh flowers, I recommend giving something that will last more than a day or two. The inexpensive present that will still be appreciated try these holiday dish towels, Terra-cotta Bread Warmer, a colorful cake stand, the Equal tea towel, or this modern house red wine. All of these you can pick up for under $25 but that does not mean they are any less thoughtful.
If you are looking for a more extravagant present this tortoise serve-ware, crystal glasses or The Vanity Fair 100 Years: From Jazz Age to Our Age book would be an amazing addition to any coffee table. I think this Amaryllis bulb kit, antlers serving tray, or bulb kit would be great on a coffee table and how cute would it be next to these champagne flutes? Hopefully one of these 12 items will work for the hostess on your list!
This was one of the most fun gift guides yet, so enjoyable because while I consider myself a foodie I am more I am on the eating side of foodie than the making side but I would still love all of these gifts to be under my tree this year. For under $25 the twisting tea ball, a pair of Zoku Ice Ball molds, the zester, the cube of maple sugar, For under $50 I am sure any true foodie would love this Truffle Salt, these Tumbador chocolate, cocktail shaker, digital kitchen scale, or shot glasses actually made out of salt. The most expensive git on my list might be one perfect for my dad, the Omaha Steak Collection which includes, Filet Mignons, Top Sirloins, Omaha Steaks Burgers and more! My favorite gift of the lot is one I already own, this Rabbit Wine opener, truly amazing!
