Give Thanks to the Host

Thanksgiving is almost here and I am especially excited because I don’t have to travel this year!  My family is coming to the Windy City and I get to host.  Which got me thinking…what are some gift ideas to bring the host when you’re not contributing to the main event?  Not that I’m saying my family needs to bring me a gift, but here are some things I would be happy to gift to the host or hostess on turkey day.







Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is only a few weeks away, but there’s still time to snag a great gift.  I don’t know about you, but my Mom is difficult to shop for since she never “wants anything”.  But, I’m determined to give my Mom a gift this year that she wouldn’t normally pick up for herself, but will be happy to receive.  Here are a few gift ideas that have caught my eye.

Hostess with the Mostess

We’ve all been there…heading to the in-laws, meeting the fam for the first time, or to a friend’s place for Thanksgiving and wonder “what to bring”.  The traditional bottle of wine or flowers is always a good idea, but I put together some alternative gift ideas for you to make your first meeting a memorable experience.
