If you read my hosting gift guide for the holidays, you know my theory on gifts: They should show your gratitude and also make your host’s life easier after you leave. Now, while I don’t believe gifts are totally necessary for a party (I never expect them!), if you’re spending a weekend at your friend’s lake house, you don’t want to show up empty-handed. Here are five easy hostess ideas to get you started.
Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
