Celebratory gift

During the holidays, everyone enjoys a glass of sparkling wine. From cava to classic champagne, a little bubbly can make any day a little more special. Why not bring the hostess a celebratory inspired gift of sparkling wine and Architec’s Poppin’ Bubbles.

Architec’s Poppin’ Bubbles makes opening any sparkling wine bottle an easier experience. Simply place the kitchen tool on the sparkling wine cork and twist. The cork easily removes every time. This kitchen tool is approximately $25 on Amazon.

Of course the Architec Poppin’ Bubbles needs a bottle of sparkling wine to accompany it. Unless the hostess has a favorite sparkling wine, a gift from One Hope Wine will make a wonderful impression. Several of the company’s sparkling wines come in glittery bottles. Even more impressive, One Hope Wine gives back to charity with every purchase. Why not do something good with your indulgence. One Hope Wine can be purchased online.

Humorous gift

Everyone has at least one friend who is the life of the party. From that witty joke to the awesome comeback, everyone can count on that person to have the comment of the party. If the hostess is that person, why not put some humor into the hostess gift. One funny option is from Twisted Wares.

A woman owned company, Twisted Wares is a very irreverent, even snarky, kitchen towel line. With phrases like “I like to rub my meat” or “spooning leads to forking,” these kitchen towels are only for hostess with a good sense of humor.

Pair a couple of these funny kitchen towels with a gift certificate for a spa day or a promise for a girls’ night out. Hopefully, this hostess gift will at least get her to smile during the party.

For the entertainer
