Between cocktail parties, cookie exchanges and the big event (Christmas or Christmas Eve dinner) there are a ton of parties to plan for this time of year! And while we all ready figured out the perfect ensemble to wear (see here) you probably shouldn’t show up empty handed. Hostess gifts can be tricky though…how much to spend, how big of a gift, how personal to get, etc.
One of the most thoughtful hostess gifts I ever received was a basket with everything needed for a yummy breakfast the next morning. After cooking for a crowd- the last thing on your host’s mind is cooking breakfast the next morning. This has since become my go-to hostess gift; a basket filled with baked goods, yummy spreads, a small kitchen or home item (like dish towels) my favorite coffee or items to make mimosas. I created this basket for a friend and included my delicious orange cranberry loaf with some pumpkin butter. See below for the recipe and to I also included a lit of items you could include in your breakfast baskets or to give as stand alone gifts!
