This time of year is the official season of Hostess Gifts... I mean Holiday Entertaining, which means Hostess Gifts. While I am a big fan of giving and receiving a bottle of wine, I also like to include something extra - maybe something for breakfast or a little gifty.
Unbaked Scones Hostess Gift
These Ready-to-Bake-Scones + Glaze is one of my favorites to give. It is a batch of unbaked scones that are ready to go in the oven in the morning (and I include the sheet of parchment paper for the baking sheet as a liner inside the box), then drizzled with glaze. After a night of entertaining this is a dream for a Hostess. You could bake them ahead of time, but they are so much better fresh from the oven.
Here is a recipe gallery with all of my Scones Recipes. These are our favorite, Cranberry Orange (with fresh cranberries). If you have never ventured into the scone world - you should as soon as possible. Mine are like a slightly sweet biscuit, with yummy ingredients and usually a glaze... and they take about 10 minutes to make +15 minutes to bake.
Banana (or Pumpkin) Bread
Potted Paperwhites in Brown & White Square Ceramic Containers
I'll share a post with details for how to put these together.
Candles + Wine are entertaining essentials that everyone needs and are always welcome.
I always keep a couple of boxed tapers in my drawer for last minute hostess gifts. Just put a bow on it and you're set. I've also included a Tea Towel with this set of candles.
My collection of Copper Cookie Cutters also come ready for giving in a Large Cello Bag + A Recipe Card.
Here are some ideas that I'm looking forward to re-creating :
I love this packaging. You can use my Tin Tie Bags to re-create this look for cookies or snack mix... or anything you want to put in the bags.
I'm so obsessed with this - Can. Not. Wait. to make this. Looks like my Unbleached Parchment will be an essential part ; ) It would fit perfectly in a Large Cookie Box as a gift - and what a showstopper!
Love this! You could make the bread and jam from scratch... or you could buy all of these things and tie them together with a ribbon. Either way, such a great gift.
Isn't this cute? These scones are packed in my Baking Baskets and wrapped with tissue (or parchment?).
