If you’ve ever hosted a Passover seder (or any large dinner party for that matter) then you know it takes a lot of thought, time, and energy. As a host, you go the extra mile to make guests feel welcome and shower them with great food. So, if you’re a seder guest who gets to kick back and simply enjoy, why not say thank you to your favorite host and hostess by surprising them with a gift? I’ve compiled a few buzz-worthy holiday hostess gifts that are bound to make any entertainer feel appreciated!
In case you aren’t familiar, during a traditional seder, adults drink four cups of wine throughout their meal. Given each bottle only offers up six glasses, your host will need a LOT of bottles. So, bringing one or two is always a great hostess gift that will be greatly appreciated. Just make sure it’s kosher! Here are three I’m trying this year: Domaine du Castel Rose, Castel Petit Castel, and Psagot Cabernet Sauvignon.
Magnetic Wine Glass Charms
Speaking of wine: How often do you pour yourself a glass of wine at a party, put it down to do something, and then come back without a clue which one is yours? Next time your hostess friend throws a bash, bring along these adorable magnetic wine glass charms. They’re a fun way to mark your glass and can be reused for many parties to come!
