The holidays are a time of togetherness with friends, family and community, and that means lots of social engagements! Whether it’s a dinner party, holiday open house or another festive event, don’t forget to show your appreciation with a host or hostess gift.
When it comes to choosing a great holiday host gift, you can’t go wrong with wine and cheese baskets. Wine gifts are a thoughtful way to thank the host, especially when combined with gourmet cheese or nuts. At Hickory Farms, we have a wide variety of wine gift baskets available to fit any taste, from fall-themed wine gift baskets to options with traditional Hickory Farms items.
Martha Stewart has some great ideas for hostess gifts as well, like the one shown above. Just arrange a jar of specialty preserves with a pretty tea towel and a small cutting board, and then tie a ribbon around it. Or, for a convenient alternative, try our Orchard Preserves Sampler.
You could also use a cutting board as the base for a custom gift, adding gourmet meats and cheeses, sweet hot mustard, and other gourmet food gifts. Tie a decorative knife and spreader to the cutting board with ribbon, and you’ve got a great host gift. Not only is this idea charming and easy, but right now we’re doing our Mix, Match & Save promotion!
