Do you get invited to holiday dinners, cocktail parties or other such occasions? I do and I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of taking along the standard bottle of wine. At one party, the host and hostess ended up with 22 bottles of wine by the end of the evening!!! I decided that this year I wanted to go for something a little more creative so I have put together a collection of items that step outside the hostess gift box a bit.
