Even if you have not had a chance to read Modern Manners, you probably do not need the world-renowned etiquette expert, Dorethea Johnson, and her famous granddaughter, the internationally acclaimed lovely Liv Tyler, telling you that a thoughtful hostess gift is always in good etiquette.
Sure, a nice bottle of wine will almost always be an appropriate hostess gift (unless of course the host and hostess are adamant non-drinkers!), but bringing something with a little novelty shows extra thoughtfulness.
What about if you are on a budget? Not to worry! Thoughtfulness does not require a large checking account. In fact, if you only have a limited amount of money to spend on a hostess gift, it is far better to bring an inexpensive but unique gift rather than a cheap bottle of wine.
So then, what is the perfect inexpensive, unique hostess gift for foodie friends who seem to have every kitchen gadget, gourmet condiment and culinary gizmo under the sun?
Does Your Hostess Have Uten-sil?
Since it is brand new to the market, chances are your hostess has not yet heard of Uten-sil. And when it comes to hostess gift giving, that’s a good thing.
Serving as both a functional and decorative fork and knife “dock”, Uten-sil is not only the perfect place to rest your silverware between courses, it adds a sophisticated and classy touch to your tablescape. If the menu leans towards being more Eastern than Western, Uten-sil functions equally as well with chopsticks as with silverware! And whether you select black or white, Uten-sil blends in beautifully with any number of different table settings.
Of course if your hostess is somewhat of a neatnik (like me!) she will surely appreciate how tidy Uten-sil helps keep her tablecloth and placemats.
Unique Hostess Gift Idea Combo: A Cut Above the Rest
The hostess gift for your next dinner party invite could be as simple as 1, 2, 3…
Pop a set of four Uten-sils ($12.00) in a decorative gift bag and bring along an orchid (always an elegant gift idea.) It’s a thoughtful, classy gift combo and it won’t break the bank!
