Whether it’s a dinner party or an upcoming holiday event, bringing a gift to the hostess is a great way to show thanks for the occasion. But choosing the perfect gift for the hostess can sometimes be a bit difficult, especially when other guests are also bringing gifts. For some great ideas, party planner Samantha Spector, of San Francisco-based Milk & Honey Special Events ,offers the following great suggestions when picking out host/hostess gifts this season. What makes many of these gifts attractive is that most are from locally owned businesses.
They treated you, so treat them to breakfast the next morning by giving them a basket of pastries. Try double bacon maple biscuits from Biscuit Bender, a bottle of Biscuit Bender’s honey butter and coffee beans from Blue Bottle. Both Biscuit Bender and Blue Bottle are located in the Ferry Building, so you can pick them up in one trip. Other biscuit flavors Biscuit Bender has on its menu include cinnamon bun and Mexican hot chocolate. (Biscuit Bender half-dozen box, $17; Blue Bottle coffee beans, $19-$25).
