Get the host some self care products
The idea is to bring your host something to treat themselves after they spent time getting ready for a stressful party. Deyette recommends using Soap and Glory's "Bag a Little Beauty" so the host can get a little bit of everything. She also recommends the righteous butter if you are looking for an individual gift.
Bring the side dish and leave the serving tray as a gift
To both help the host and bring a gift, Deyette recommends bringing an appetizer or dessert but leaving the gift it's served on behind. Get them a nice plate or serving tray. This way the host is trying to rush through dishes at the end of the party to make sure you get your tray back. And Deyette has a surprisingly place to find cute plate ware : Home Depots.
"Home Depot has so much more than tools and outdoor furniture," said Deyette. "Go look online"
Let Love Grow
If the host loves greenery but doesn't have a green thumb, buy them a succulent as a gift. Succulents live a long life and are very low maintenance. Deyette recommends looking at 1800-FLOWERS.
