Something elegant and sweet, for a dinner party

Bring dessert and a topping, for a dinner party

It’s the organic hazelnut spread dinner goers will obsess over dipping just about everything into. Don’t miss these Amazon Prime gifts for everyone on your list.
The most elegant oils, for overnight stays
via amazon.com If you are staying overnight—or over two nights—you may want to go for a $50 to $100 gift, and also make sure to take the host out to dinner or brunch and chip in with daily chores such as setting the table, clearing the dishes, and keeping your room clean. “The hostess gift is not ‘payment’ for the kindness; it’s simply the first gesture of gratitude. You should still contribute with other kind gestures or experiences, like something for the house or pay for theater or sports tickets while you are together,” says Gottsman. For the hostess gift, consider a Frescobaldi Laudemio First Pressing 2018 30th Anniversary Special Gold Edition olive oil—an extremely elegant version of the standard EVOO that won’t soon be forgotten.
