Are you spending the holidays out of town with family this year? Are you going to a dinner party with friends? Bring a holiday gift basket for the hostess to enjoy after the guests have returned home. A gift basket brimming with the scents of the holiday season!
We love hosting family from out of town and also holiday dinners with friends. It is a lot of work to get the house ready, to create the menu plan, and remember all of the extra details to create a lovely event. It is even more work to clean up afterwards when all you want to do is kick up your feet and relax.
I’ve created this holiday gift basket with my favorite things from this time of year. The perfect thank you gift for your holiday hostess this year!
I also included a ceramic mug with a few packets of salted caramel hot cocoa mix. Just right to sip while reading a book at the end of the day.
It isn’t the holiday season without treats. Soft peppermint mints and Danish butter cookies in cellophane bags added color and sweetness to my basket.
And last, but not least…
An evergreen tree, hot chocolate, peppermint, cookies, pretty linens, and a heavenly candle. Placed in a gold basket and wrapped with a gingham ribbon. My holiday hostess basket is complete!
What scents remind you of the holiday season?
