easter hostess gifts

Williams Sonoma

In the South, no holiday is complete without a gift for whoever is hosting the big holiday. Whether they are preparing Easter brunch, lunch, or supper, this person is welcoming you (and likely your family, too) into their home, dirtying the kitchen to make the deviled eggs , and possibly even opening up the yard for an epic egg hunt. So, yes, even if this special someone is your sister, mom, or best friend, it's kind to give a gift as a "thank you" for the occasion.

As always, a hostess gift does not have to be expensive to be meaningful. It's the thought that counts with these things. So before you pack up the Tupperware, put on your Easter dress, and polish your Sunday shoes, consider what you can bring to the Easter hostess to show your gratitude. Here are a few ideas that you can order in advance, so you have one less thing to think about come Easter morning.
