host & hostess gift collection

Because parties and dinners abound during the holidays, plenty of our customers come to us in need of host & hostess gifts.  Often people like to take wrapped flowers with them to dinner at a friend’s house, but sometimes–yes, we’re saying it!–flowers aren’t the thing.

Sometimes as a guest you may not be sure what flowers your friend likes, or how your friend is decorating for the holidays.  Or your friend may be horrible at remembering to give cut flowers fresh water, so you know their beauty will be short-lived.  Or your friend may have allergies.  Or cats you’re worried will nibble what they shouldn’t.
