Last minute gifts for hosts

Picture it, you’ve got all of your Christmas shopping done, it’s all wrapped and you’re feeling glorious about it all, you’re sitting on the sofa planning which outfit will look nice for Christmas Day as well as have enough room for the amount of food you’re planning on eating. When suddenly you realise you haven’t got your host a small gift to say thank you…

Okay, now story time is over let’s get onto the quick ideas to get you off the hook so you can get back to that sofa.

First up, people always love flowers, in Tesco this year they have some gorgeous Christmas bouquets, some even with a nutcracker on a stick decoration, very cute.

Next you can always find gift sets in shops at all times of the year, from wine and a glass, to miniature bottles of whisky, have a quick scout around the end of the drinks aisle and you’ll find some!

And whether you find them tacky or cute, singing Christmas toys are a must in any household! (And you can never have too many…)

I hope that gives you some inspiration for quick gifts! Let me know what you like to take!
