Top on our list of the best hostess gifts is a bottle of champagne!

Champagne bottles are aesthetically pleasing, let alone the champagne itself! But before you buy this gift for the hostess, just be sure of their preference and taste. You can always inquire about this from them before the event.

Apart from the champagne with a beautiful bottle, consider bringing a wine opener for your host too.

Apart from these great gifts that you can bring for the host, there are some guest etiquette rules we should just learn to live by.

3 Easy Yet Difficult Guest Etiquette Rules

10 Best Hostess Gifts For A Dinner Party Christmas + Guest Etiquette Rules

Always Confirm Attendance

If you were invited to any social gathering over at Christmas, please be kind enough to confirm your attendance to the host.

And also, once you have confirmed your attendance, don’t be rude enough to cancel the event during the last minute because honestly, the host would have already budgeted for you so that would be a waste. It is also rude!

On the day of the event, be sure to arrive on time and politely greet the host once you’re at the place; keep this first on the list once you’re at the venue.

If you’ll be unable to attend the social event, kindly let the host know this before you confirm your attendance.

As well, please do not bring in an uninvited guest to the party. Always have them formally invited by the host if you have to tag them along.

Stick To The Dress Code

If you have to look good at any social event, then you must stick to the dressing code. If it is a family reunion, be sure to dress modestly and respect whatever the theme will be.

Good enough, if it’s Christmas, it is always easy to look good in red and white, right?

Anyway, there is no room for guessing! If the host hasn’t let everyone know about the dressing code, be wise enough to inquire this from the host.

Remember to Eat Before Showing Up At The Event

While there is always plenty of food at social gatherings, that is no pass to indulge and become foodie-famous.

And to ensure you don’t over-eat, it is just proper to eat at your place even before the event. Why?

  • You’ll be full enough to over-eat at the place.
  • Even if the food delays to be served, your stomach won’t be rumbling the whole time.
  • Your hands won’t be on the bread basket, dessert table or wine stand every other time.
  • You will have a good time socializing and bonding.

I should start making plans though, so thank you for pulling me back into reality. Blessings!
