No More Wine as a Hostess Gift

No More Wine as a Hostess Gift

Nov 18 2015

Here’s the scene – you’ve been invited to a holiday party and at the last minute you remember you need a gift for your hosts.  So you do what you always do, you grab a bottle of wine and throw it into one of those wine gift-bags.  All well so far, but when you arrive at the house and walk up to the front door there are 3 other guests – all holding wine gift-bags.  Great,  and now it’s a competition for who brought the best bottle.  So why not take something else, something different.  And by different I don’t mean a fruit cake. 

My suggestion is a really nice bottle of extra virgin olive oil.  And here are my reasons:

  1. It’s really unlikely anyone else will bring one, and you’ll get credit for being original.
  2. It’s definitely not the cheap way out, because a good bottle can easily be as much as a good bottle of wine. 
  3. It’s the season for food – so take a nice French or sour dough baguette with you
  4. For people who know olive oil – it will be greatly appreciated
  5. For people who don’t know olive oil – it will be greatly appreciated
  6. Just because. 

So go out on a limb this holiday season and be original.  Or you could always just take a bottle of wine – just don’t bring one to my house.
