Best Hostess Gifts of the Season: Part 6



It has been so much fun sharing my "Best Hostess Gift of the Season". I thought I could get them all done in 5 days but this one is definitely worth mentioning. I love to do the "Bag-0-Wine-Switch-A-Rooni". Let me explain. There are so many cute wine gift bags on the market I thought it was a shame to only use them for just one purpose. I am always on the look out for "Wine-ish" type gifts to fit these bags. It is so fun to see the host open the bag and be startled by the unexpected gesture. One suggestion is to put a "Gourmet" bottle of Olive Oil in the bag along with some exceptional noodles. Another great idea I "borrowed" from Robin over at Big Red Kitchen. Notice the bottle of coffee syrup in her blog header. She has given away many bottles of the stuff with her favorite coffees! I found these cute little bags at The Container Store for only 49 cents. I filled it with my favorite coffee and Ta Da - the perfect Hostess gift!



Can you think of anything else that would fit nicely in the "Bag-O-Wine"?

Rindy- This has been a great series. I got so many good ideas. I am still trying to come up with a good cookie for the big exchange, hmmm. I'll put my thinking cap on tighter. Loved the cake in a cup idea too!

I too have been eyeing the wine bags and thinking of other things to go inside. I finally decided to do a big batch of my dad's best barbecue sauce and stack two pint jars in a wine bag. Maybe throw in a little paint brush, too... Thanks for the other great ideas!
