For a Gracious Hostess!

I love little gifts! I made this to give to my aunt who had the family over for a Labor Day Cookout. It's also my work for the Tuesday challenge at Die Cuts R Us. Check out the challenge HERE! Join In!

I added chocolates in the box which is an old Stampin Up Stamp box that one stamp came in! Add some paper, embossing, pretty ribbon, tag, and stars and WAH LAH! Anyone have any great suggestions for hostess gifts? I love new quirky ideas! Maybe it's something you have given or have received! (Mind you that I come from a country family and I never knew you took hostess gifts until I moved to the "city" lol. Our form of hostess gifts was a side of hash brown casserole, potato salad, or macaroni and tomato to go with dinner!

Mind you I would be a huge fan of getting a side of hashbrown casserole as a hostess gift. But around Christmas time I tend to make up tags and give those to the hostess. Looking forward to other fun suggestions.

Mmm hashbrown casserole sounds pretty good to me too! I think "cookies in a jar" would make cute hostess gifts. The jar itself could be decorated with fabric, a cute label and tag etc...
