Does anyone have any good ideas for little gifts to give to party hosts? We have a few over Christmas and we’ve been told not to bring a thing.

  • flowers and wine – but you can also bring some homemade bikkies, they always go down well, and presents for the kids x

  • We fall back on our favourite bottle of wine as a general rule (Pink sparkling) but when in doubt you can’t go wrong with flowers or a decoration for the tree.

  • A pot plant if they have a garden, a bottle of wine if they drink, box of chocolates lol, or a gift basket of gourmet food or bath and pamper items.

  • Something homemade like truffles or cookies.
    Or something to like wine even handmade pot holders or tea towels are nice.

  • Some exquisite chocolates or cookies wrapped in a linen tea towel is a lovely gift to give or receive for that matter!!!

  • Flowers, a bottle of wine to share over dinner, a plate of something homemade like fudge, rumballs or Christmas biscuits. Sometimes a beautiful thankyou case might suit.

  • Not to bring a thing is the worst how about a mini bouquet of either flowers or food they have some awesome ones with flowers really (chocolates).

  • At Christmas time we always bring a plate of home made short bread and Christmas goodies like rum balls, fudge and ginger bread. We have a baking day prior to Christmas, make lots and then have beautiful plates to give as gifts. They have always been received with much appreciation.

  • I would bring a Poinsettia or some Christmas food, for example the Italian Pandoro or Panettone.

  • At this time of year, you could donate to a charity on behalf of your guest. (Eg wishing tree or other children’s christmas charity) If there are going to be children there, you could bring along a movie or game for the children to play. If all else fails, jaut offer to do the washing up!
