Go Be Do Guest Blog ~ Fall Hostess Gift Ideas

I am beyond honored that Siri invited me into her "home" to do a guest blog.  I'm also thrilled because when this post gets published, it will mean that baby girl S.Delicious is here!  Welcome darling girl, I cannot wait to meet you!

Fall is here!  Are you as excited about it as I am?  While summer has its fantastic share of parties, in my opinion, fall festivities are the best.  As backyard BBQ's give way to cozy chili cook-offs, your social calendar for the season begins to fill up.  Football parties.  Tailgates.  Favorite TV show premieres.  Pumpkin carving get togethers.  Halloween.  Thanksgiving.  

One thing that never changes, no matter the season, is being a good and gracious guest.  I find that people often struggle with what to take as a hostess gift, so I thought I'd put together some fun ideas to help inspire you.  Luckily, food makes a wonderful hostess gift so you're in luck!

I'm going to let you in on my little secret to a perfect hostess gift... PAIR it!  It's one thing to bring a bottle of wine to a party, but it's another to bring the wine AND a little something extra.  Try to keep your host/hostess in mind when you're pairing the gift and make it something personal.  If you found a beautiful pie plate that you think your hostess will love, pair it with your favorite pie recipe and a basket of berries to help her along.  Personalize it and pair it.  This is the key!


1.  When I'm invited on an overnight trip, I like to gift a box or a basket of pastries from my favorite bakery.  Your hostess will be grateful to have something to put out for breakfast without having to think about what to cook.  But don't stop at a basket of pastries, add in some homemade jam from your kitchen or your favorite farmer's market stand.  {images here and here

2.  This giant ice cube tray is beyond fun for anyone who entertains.  The 2" ice cubes won't melt as fast and water down your drinks.  I would pair this with a Bloody Mary mix for Siri, since I know how much they love Bloody Mary's at her house. 

3.  A custom made state cheeseboard is a really special gift.  You can easily pair this with some delicious cheese and crackers, but for a more whimsical pairing, give them these fun cheese markers

4.  Does your host love to drink coffee?  Purchase them a pound of your favorite coffee, and pair that with a stylish and chic mug in their favorite color.  


Taking that little extra step and pairing the gift with something personal and fun will make your gift memorable and show just how grateful you are for their hospitality.  I hope this inspires you as you begin the hunt for this season's perfect hostess gift!  Tell me, what are some of your favorite things to give as hostess gifts?

In the autumn of your years don't make it so that what you look back on is regret. Live your life now so that whatever you do gives some sunshine before you head into the winter of your life.
