Holiday Hostess-With-the-Mostess Gifts to Make Sure You’re Invited Back

Anyone can show up to a holiday party with a so-so bottle of Chardonnay, but you should make your mark as a great guest by honoring the host and hostess with a stylish, thoughtful and practical gift that’s a little indulgent…or maybe a lot. Don’t hesitate to spend generously, because no recipient really means it when they say, “Oh, you shouldn’t have!” You definitely should, so choose a hostess gift that’s personal and memorable, and you’ll be guaranteed a return invitation—next time with preferable seating-chart placement.

CHANDON LIMITED-EDITION: It’s not a party without sparking wine, so set the stage by bringing a bottle of bubbly as a festive hostess gift (and if you’re lucky, she’ll share it with you). The Chandon Blanc de Noirs is a perfect choice—with tasty notes of cherry, currant and strawberry—and the special limited-edition comes wrapped in its own gold-and-white bottle. 750mL for $24.
