I’m that friend that tries my best NOT to come empty handed when I am invited out to someones home. I don’t care if its flowers, candy, wine etc I’m going to try to bring something, it’s just how I was taught! My mom is one of the best gift givers I have ever met and I learned from her! She taught me early on to always be thoughtful and give gifts that mean something and add that special touch.
The other day I was trying to think of what I could give a friend and I didn’t have too much time! Then I remembered I had few things in my pantry and I had holiday dish towels and I made this gift within minutes and was out the door! It came in handy and she loved it and I wanted to share with you an easy gift idea if you don’t have time to run out to a store.
A bottle of wine is a quick and easy option for a hostess or housewarming gift. But, you also want your recipient to feel special like you really put thought into the gift.
This gift idea presents the best of both worlds! Make the gift wrap serve double-duty and serve as a gift itself. I found this beautiful kitchen towel at Nordstrom Rack but you can find beautiful options at World Market, Target, TJ Maxx etc. And as for the wine, well… we all know where to buy that!
