Holiday Gift Guide, Day 6: Sweet Hostess Gifts

| Posted















It is a lot of work to throw a holiday shindig (hey, those cookies don’t frost themselves) and even more work to host relatives (hey, those bathrooms don’t clean themselves either), so show your appreciation for the host or hostess with one of these sweet tokens, or if you hearken back to last week’s post on foodie products, any of those treats make stellar, cost-effective hostess gifts as well.

These cheery flour sack tea towels are hand screen-printed with oh-so-sweet utensil designs in a myriad of colors by crafters Angela and Linda Nickerson of Two Teacups, purveyors of towels, pillows and laptop cases.



Recipe rubber stamp kit


This set of rubber stamps from Capitol Hill’s Butter Home is perfect for the crafty cook: the 1” by 1” cup, measurement, teaspoon and tablespoon style stamps can be used to create darling custom recipe cards worthy of a display.
