unique & totally awesome gift ideas for: the hostess

In France, it is taboo to not bring a hostess gift when you are invited for dinner/a party at someone's house. I am a personal believer in this subtle gesture; it shows that you truly appreciate the hostess scrubbing their toilet bowls, squeegeeing their shower doors and dusting on top of all the bookshelves they can't see, just so you don't think they're living in constant, unrelenting filth. As a hostess myself, I can tell you that it is no small feat to put on a party, especially at Christmas, when it requires five times the amount of work to make it appropriately festive. While a bottle of wine or a bouquet of flowers are always classic hostess items, here are some more creative tokens to show your appreciation.
