Headed to a party and stumped on what to get your host? Pick up any of these sweet, and inexpensive gifts, from Kelly Williams Brown, author of Gracious:
A single big round flower in a little dollar-store bud vase.
A sweet card for them—encouraging if they're down, celebratory if it's a happy day, or one that will make them laugh if it's a just-because visit.
A cheese wedge (this may just be me, but I am never sorry to receive cheese of any kind).
A used copy of a book you think they'd enjoy—bonus points if you write an inscription.
If you are an artsy or crafty person, maybe just a little tiny thing you drew/doodled/lettered/made for them.
If you are a cooking/baking person, a treat of some sort. Actually, if it's a one-on-one visit, why not swing by a local pastry place and grab a nice-looking tart or some macaroons?
