I don’t expect guests to arrive at my home with hosting gifts. (“Hosting” because I am a man and not a hostess, per se.) Instead of adding to your hostess's mostly-unused candle closet, bring something that shows your subtle gratitude for the invitation and that will also make her life a little easier the day after the soiree. Here are 5 DIY “thank-yous” that will give her a simple pleasure to look forward to in the morning.
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! 😘
