Just in time for Thanksgiving, I'm launching my 2012 Gift Guide series. I'm a strong believer in hostess gifts and always try to pull together something when I'm a guest. It doesn't have to be hard or expensive - there are few simple categories that always work. Try gourmet sweets (William Sonoma, Whole Foods or event Target have plenty of options) a beautifully scented candle or pair of champagne flutes. People can never have too many of these gifts. When traveling I love to bring something local - luckily we have a great winery here in Maryland that fits the bill! If you have extra time personalize an easy gift like notecards.
